Tom is a gorgeous young cattle dog, looking for a more appropriate home. He is a true cattle dog! He likes herding things. Currently the only thing he has to herd are children which isn't working for his owners. Tom loves their daughter, but is distressed by her friends.
Tom would do best in a home where he got an abundance of exercise each day. He loves long runs, the beach, dog park, and going for rides in the car. Tom lived with another dog, a senior, until that dog passed away.
Again, Tom is a Cattle Dog. This breed was designed to work cattle ALL DAY, which means they have drive, tenacity, and endurance. This is a breed for an active person. They also require some one with a"take charge" energy. After all this is a 30lb. dog that thru sheer will can herd a 2000 lb cow. This is not a breed for some one who is not willing to be in charge. Tom is looking for that person to be his human. He is very comfortable with his current family. Loving and loyal, but not getting the guidance he needs to accept new people coming to his home.
If Tom sounds like the running partner/dog you are looking for, and you would like an opportunity to adopt, send in an application along with your interest (bottom of the page: http://cchdrescue.org/adoptionprocess.html)
