Louise's Story...
If you would like more information about Louise or are interested in adopting her, please send an email to

Louise was found running the streets in Houston, Texas on a hot summer day in June. She was on the lam with her partner in crime, Thelma. They were both collarless, without chips, covered in flees and missing large amounts of hair, suffering from skin conditions, lesions and blisters, dehydrated, frail and most of all…scared! When I was finally able to persuade them to get into my car by throwing Vienna sausages inside, they immediately collapsed on the backseat from exhaustion. I immediately took them to my vet to deal with their pressing health issues.

After 5 months, Louise and Thelma are in excellent health, spayed and up to date on their vaccinations. They have even been sent out to train with one of Houston’s preeminent dog trainers, Matt Bryant A.K.A. “The Texas Dogfather”. Both of them are doing exceptionally well. Louise is now leash trained, knows many commands and is much more confident and secure. Louise is full of life and wants to please. She absolutely loves to run and play…especially with other dogs! She loves being petted and being near you. Louise has had a hard life and is looking for a fun, loving forever home. Please consider Louise (…and possibly her friend, Thelma).

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Louise, a Houston Australian Cattle Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Cattle Dog for sale in Houston, or seeking a Australian Cattle Dog dog from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Houston breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Australian Cattle Dog breeders who help with Australian Cattle Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
