Homer is available for foster or adoption. We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for fosters! Homer is currently fostered in Bradenton, FL (Manatee County).

Homer is a joyful and sweet 30 lb, 10-month-old Australian cattle dog mix, likely with whippet or other sighthound. He has been in rescue for almost 7 months now and we can't figure out why he is being overlooked! He is just about the sweetest dog you'll ever meet - not a fan of loud noises and a bit unsure of himself at first. He will cuddle up with you and nap for hours - right by your side is his favorite place to be. He will melt your heart with his sweet demeanor.

Homer loves to play with toys and playing ball and Frisbee. He catches the Frisbee in his mouth now and with the right training and work could be a disc dog for sure. We think flyball and agility would be in the cards as well. Homer is very food-motivated and intelligent. He is a fast learner and is currently doing great in his obedience class. Homer loves to use his nose, so nose work is another option. Once he is old enough in a few months, he will make a wonderful running or biking companion, and already loves to go on hikes with his foster family.

Homer loves other dogs and playing, but does not push buttons. He even coexists with the grumpy male dog in his foster home. We would strongly prefer Homer go to a home with a canine companion to play with and to model confidence after. Homer is also kid- and cat-tested. He really would do well in just about any home that has a fenced yard and keeps both his brain and body active.

Homer is up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, microchipped, neutered and heartworm negative. He is housebroken and crate trained, and does not make a peep in the crate. He is a wonderful boy - any family would be lucky to make him a part of it.

About Ewenity Farm Herding Dog Haven

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small rescue organization located in Southwest Florida. Being small helps us give more one on one attention to individual dogs and their needs. Rescued dogs are kept in our homes and treated as our own. Herding dogs are unique. They are a highly intelligent and require much of the owner’s attention. The dogs are evaluated, when they come into the rescue, for any temperament and health issues. Then they are given basic obedience, socialization and rehabilitation as it is necessary.

It is our sole purpose to find forever homes for these loving, wonderful dogs that have been discarded through no fault of their own. All adopted dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on shots, heartworm negative, micro-chipped, and on flea and heartworm preventative.

Our Adoption Process...

We require potential adopters to fill out an Adoption Application.When that is approved we can arrange for the prospective adopter to meet the dog they are interested in. We do require an adoption contract to be signed at time of adoption. We conduct home visits. There is an adoption fee that is usually around $250 per dog to cover any expenses we have incurred. We do have dogs located at qualified fosters throughout the state and also out of state.
