Mason *COURTESY LISTING*'s Info...
|Breed:||Australian Cattle Dog/Australian Shepherd Mix||Color:||White - With Gray Or Silver||Age:||Young|
|Size:||Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)||Sex:||Male|
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 where he was deemed unadoptable because he is blind in one eye and deaf. He can, however, see very well out of his right eye.
He is the sweetest boy! 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 doesnt dance around or struggle at all he stands nicely and is very patient. He mastered the doggie door in no time.

Rescue Group Info...
New Hope Cattle Dogs' mission is helping discarded, stray and unwanted Australian Cattle Dogs (ACD's) that need a second chance at finding a forever home and providing education and training to the public.
We believe that there is a special place out there for all unwanted and abandoned ACD's. It is our duty to match your lifestyle with the dog's personality for a "perfect" fit. It is important to us to place the dog that is right for you and your family in your home. Therefore, there are strict guidelines and qualifications that all potential adoptive homes must meet before we place a dog in their home.
Before adoption or viewing of adoptable an adoption application (http://www.newhopecattledogs.com/adoption_form.htm_) must be filled out and a home check must be completed. Then an appointment will be made between potential adopter and our foster home to meet the dogs.
All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, up-to-date with all age appropriate vaccinations, had fecal exam, been dewormed, are microchipped and vet checked. We have recently started doing Heartworm tests and starting all our dogs on heartworm preventative. We do not have the funds to do additional screening tests for Erlichia or Valley Fever unless the dog is showing signs of illness. If they are showing signs, we will then screen the dogs for these illnesses and treat appropriately. The adoption fee is $150-$250 (depending on the dog, with most dogs being closer to $200) and that includes all vetting previously mentioned. Please understand that this fee barely covers our medical expenses, shelter fees and does not begin to cover housing and feeding. So if you are able, an additional monetary donation is appreciated. Remember that we are a non-profit rescue group.
(Example Cost Break down for female puppy under one year old: Spay-$120-$165, 3 booster vaccinations (DHPP-C)-$15, Rabies shot-$15, Microchip and Registration of Microchip-$35, deworming medication-$5, fecal exam-$28, brief vet exam-$27: Total cost-$245.00) This example is typical for the majority of dogs we take in. If you add antibiotics (which most of our dogs will require), food, additional screening tests, fees to get the dog out of the shelter and gas to and from appointments, our costs are well over $400 per dog.
