Let me introduce you to Derby.  Derby is a male 6 month old Red Heeler mix.  He is good with other dogs, people and cats.  He can be a little nervous upon first meetings and introductions but he quickly warms up.  This little man loves to play.  He adores being outside and going on walks.  He is considered low to medium energy for an Australian Cattle dog.  Derby will need a confident owner that will help to build his confidence and continue his training.  True to his breed, he will follow his owner around and attempts to herd young children.  For this reason, we are recommending no children under 6.  He is crate trained and housebroken.  He is very responsive and obedient.  He will make a devoted companion to some lucky family.  Please remember, Derby is still a puppy.  He may chew and is still learning.  Please consider opening your hearts and home to this sweet pup.  You won’t be sorry!

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.

Our rescues reside in foster homes.
