Mason was born approximately September 2009. He is an Australian Shepherd / Australian Cattle dog mix. He is DEAF and VISUALLY IMPAIRED. He was rescued from Santa Cruz Animal Control. He can see very well out of his right eye. What a handsome and sweet boy he is!! He gets along well with every dog he has met and absolutely loves people and kids.
Due to his breed mix, Mason is a high energy pup and will need an active family who will exercise him on a daily basis to relieve his excess energy. He would do really well at dog parks as he is a very social dog. Even though he is deaf and vision impaired, he would be a wonderful candidate for agility and obedience classes. He is a quick learner and very eager to please.
Mason does great on car rides - he sits nicely in the passenger seat and watches the traffic go by or sometimes he just lies down and takes a nap. He is also very well behaved while getting a bath he doesn't dance around or struggle at all; he stands nicely and is very patient. He mastered the doggie door in no time.
