Buddy (Flagstaff)'s Story...
Please Note: One of our volunteers, who loves Buddy and wants to see him in a good home has paid part of his adoption fee. His adoption fee is now only $50. He does love affection, but is not needy and would be happy taking a nap while you go about your day. He even sort of talks to people when they pet him in just the right spot behind his ear, making an adorable huffing sound and closing his eyes. He's a people pleaser, and will look to his person constantly for direction and praise. He has some arthritis in one back leg but daily supplements and walks will keep him on the move for many years to come. He has all the traits a good heeler should have, being one of the most loyal of the working breeds. Does great with female dogs and non-aggressive male dogs (especially if introduced during a long walk). He doesn't beg at the table and of course is housetrained. Like all Red Heelers he is acutely aware of what is around him and sometimes try to herd or chase things. Being a ranch dog may work well (he's met a few horses & didn't bark or chase). He could also be happy living with a couple where someone is home part of the day. He likes dog houses & doesn't mind a crate but when he gets to choose he's indoors with his people usually napping. He is about 8 yrs young. A home without cats is needed & kids 8 & up. Please consider this great boy. Buddy has been with us since Summer 08 & is more than ready for his family to find him. He has some quirks just like people and is somewhat afraid that people are going to throw things at him or hit him.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Buddy (Flagstaff), a Scottsdale Australian Cattle Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Cattle Dog for sale in Scottsdale, or seeking a Australian Cattle Dog dog from a breeder in Scottsdale.

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