Meet Cleo! Cleo is a unique mix of Queensland Heeler (Australian Cattle Dog) and Staffy Bull terrier. She is 8 months and weighs 30 lbs. She has a shorter build and is not expected to grow to a large size. Her coat resembles that of a Heeler; white socks in front with black spots. She is adorable! Cleo is recovering from a very treatable case of demodex mange. It causes hair loss but she is healing very fast. She was found on the streets in South L.A., so there is a good chance the condition was passed by her mother. Once this treatable condition is resolved, it does not return.
Cleo is full of personality and is mature for such a young pup. She has exuberance for dogs and loves to socialize with all kinds. Her herding instincts come into play while interacting with dogs. She is fast and likes the rough and tumble style of play. She would do best in a home where she is able to "have a job.” She needs something to stimulate her brain and exercise her instinct to "work.” She will not do well in an apartment or where she will be crated 5-8 hours daily. She will do well living with other dogs, or not. But if not, her adopters need to realize that she will not have the outlet of the other dogs, and be prepared to meet her need for mental stimulation. She does love human affection and is eager to please. Cleo is a confident, yet very sweet, loving girl. Come meet her at our kennel in South Gate!
