Marty's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Marty's Story...
Marty is 2.5 years old. He is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on his vaccines. He tested positive for heart worm and received the "fast kill" injections at the end of November. He is now taking Tri Heart Plus tablet each month until he tests negative (usually 3-4 months) and then he can continue his regular heart worm preventative for the rest of his life.

Marty was surrendered to the shelter as a stray so there is no history known about him. He is very intelligent and learns very easy. He lives the reputation of the Australian Cattle Dog breed. He will be happiest in a home that understands his desire to be active and to learn important jobs. Because of his active desire small children are not recommended to be with Marty. He is very friendly and lovable. During his down time it is usual to see him napping on the couch or curled up in his doggie bed. He also does well in his crate and gets his exercise outside in his fenced yard. He will chase the ball but he will not fetch it. He enjoys playing with the other dogs and really likes to work with his human companion. He enjoys chewing on a nyla bone when he is relaxing. He has just recently learned house living and is doing very well.

He is neutered and UTD on all required vaccinations. He is microchipped, and on a heartworm and flea preventative.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Portland 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 Portland 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/Cattle Dog breeders who help with Australian Cattle Dog/Cattle Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Portland paves the way for another one to be saved.
