Alice is available for foster or adoption. We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for fosters! Alice is currently fostered in St. Pete.
Alice is a 2-year-old Australian cattle dog mix who weighs 52 lbs. She is a sweet and active girl and would do best in a home where she has a job and an outlet. She is a quick learner and knows commands. She just needs someone to harness her focus. She loves other dogs as long as they meet properly off-leash first. She has herding tendencies and should not go to a home with very young children or senior dogs. Her foster has taught her to coexist with cats. Alice loves the agility course in her foster home, and loves to play with toys. She is being fostered with a trainer who is working on leash walking with her on a halti.
Alice is very intelligent and has a very expressive face - her whole body smiles and wags with joy when she sees her people. Alice is housebroken and does great in a crate. Her ideal family would be active and understanding of the needs and behaviors of herding dogs.
Alice is spayed, microchipped, heartworm negative and up-to-date on vaccines and preventives.
