Facts about Louise

  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut
  • Age: Young

She is a high energy girl that will need a job. She is the perfect age to start a sport with and is very eager to learn. She is very food motivation and smart as a whip. She is learning sit, down, come and starting to learn weave poles. She has great toy/ tug drive and just recently learned that she loves to swim. Like a typical heeler she is wary of strangers and will bark at them when they come into the house and if they approach her. Her foster home is working on this with her and she is improving. Because of this her adopters will need to be willing to come to New Jersey to meet her on multiple occasions so she can get used to you.  Her new owners will need to be patient with her as she learns to trust them.  Her new owners will be required to take Louise to obedience classes and continue her socialization skills. Louise's new owners will have to have herding dog experience. Louise loves to play with other dogs so she will need another well balanced dog in the home to help her with her fearfulness. She is crate-trained and house-trained and walks with a loose leash ignoring other dogs and strangers. She would make a great hiking or running partner to help her get some of her energy out.


Since Louise is a high drive cattle dog she needs a cat free home. Since she can be skittish and fearful she will need a fenced in yard and a home with no children. She will also need a well balanced doggie brother or sister and her adopters must be willing to come to New Jersey multiple times with their dog(s) so that Louise can become comfortable with her new family before going home with them. Louise is up to date on vaccines, spayed and takes monthly flea &tick preventative and heartworm preventative.

Louise is located in Highland Lakes, NJ. For questions, please contact

About Australian Cattle Dog Rescue Association

About Our Rescue Group...

We are an all volunteer group that rescues Australian Cattle Dogs. Our dogs reside in foster homes until they are adopted
Every year, thousands of Australian Cattle Dogs find themselves homeless through no fault of their own. Although the reasons are diverse, the result is the same. Healthy, adoptable dogs face euthanasia in shelters.

The Australian Cattle Dog Rescue Association rescues ACDs in shelters from Maine to Georgia and gives these dogs a fresh start with a loving family. Our foster home volunteers welcome the dogs into their homes where they live as members of the family. During the time in foster care, our volunteers determine what kind of forever home will be the right one for each dog.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our rescues reside in foster homes.
