Meet Nixon, a handsome 2 year old cattle dog, weighing around 60 pounds. He has the beautiful colors associated with a cattle dog: brown and white. Look at his wonderfully expressive face. You can see the intelligence and friendliness. He has lots of energy, loves being outdoors, and thinks playing is the best! He loves to be with adults and kids, though he might be better suited with somewhat older kids because of his energy. He is a very smart dog: he knows a plethora of commands such as: sit, wait, stay, down, target, speak, etc… He had puppy training sessions and several in home training sessions. He is house, crate, and leash trained. (Please remember that even trained dogs can have some accidents as they adjust to the routines of a new home). Nixon also knows how to run on a treadmill to help burn off that energy (one smart dog)! He enjoyed his fenced in yard where he could run and play everyday. He loves to be with small dogs, but can be shy around dogs that are larger than he is. Whether inside or outside, he loves to be around people. More than anything, he is hoping for a forever home where he can be appreciated and loved for all he has to offer. If Nixon would be a good match for you see below:
