Skye's the Limit's Story...
Skye is one of the most unique dogs we've rescued. She has the beautiful coloration of a Blue Heeler, but her coat is soft-wirey and non-shedding. She is a happy dog, in spite of having been abandoned at a kill shelter when she was pregnant.

BREED INFORMATION: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler: A working, herding breed, the Australian Cattle Dog is not suited to life alone in the backyard. One of the most intelligent breeds, it can become easily bored, leading to serious behavior problems. These dogs need to be part of the action! They are loyal, protective and alert. An excellent guard dog. Brave and trustworthy. Very good in the obedience ring and in herding and agility. Can be obedience trained to a very high level. Firm training from the start and a lot of daily leadership, along with daily mental and physical exercise will produce a fine and happy pet. It is absolutely loyal and obedient to its master, but it is something of a one-person dog. They are sometimes suspicious of people and dogs they don't know. It can be very dog aggressive, for its dominance level is high. Teach your Australian Cattle Dog that you are alpha and you will not tolerate him fighting with other dogs. Best with children in the family it has known since puppyhood. Some tend to nip at people's heels in an attempt to herd them. If you are buying a pet, avoid strictly working lines, as these dogs may be too active and intense for home life. Australian Cattle Dogs are very easy to train. Puppies are born white (inherited from the early Dalmatian crosses), but the adult color can be seen in the paw pads. Problems can and WILL arise with meek owners, and or owners who do not provide the proper amount and type of exercise. This breed does best with a job to do. If you do not have time to extensively work with and exercise your dog, or do not fully understand canine instincts and their need to have leadership, this is not the breed for you.

Cairn Terrier: The Cairn Terrier is a spirited, hardy, restless little busybody. Alert, loyal, merry, lovable and mischievous. They are somewhat independent, but friendly. Females tend to be more independent than males and some breeders feel that males are more affectionate. They are very curious, fearless and bold. They are easily trained and like to do tricks. Naturally patient with children and very playful. Cairns adapt well to their new homes. They are sensitive, and need firm, but not harsh, training and discipline. Without the proper leadership, the Cairn can become destructive and/or bark excessively. Cairns like to dig searching for vermin, so it is not wise to leave them unsupervised in a landscaped yard! This breed can be a chaser and should not be left off its lead in an unsecured area. Do not allow this little dog to fall into the, Small Dog Syndrome, human induced behaviors, where they believe they are pack leader to humans. Cairn's who are allowed to fall into this type of behavior, will develop all types of varying degrees of behavior problems, including, but not limited to separation anxiety, snapping, growling and guarding.
***********************************************************

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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