My name is Morrie. I am a 5 year male cattle dog. I have a story but nobody knows it. I was picked up as a stray in the Casa Grande area and brought to the Pinal county shelter. The workers saw that I was special and made sure I was safe until NHCD could come and save me. Due to my unknown past life experiences I am reserved around new people. I have come a long way in a short amount of time and I really want someone to love who could be patient with me and expose me to new sights and places. I am completely misunderstood by people who meet me because I come off as aloof out of fear. I really am not an aloof dog. My foster dad has seen that I can be a great dog. He has had me since March 2012. He is patient with me and has really brought me out of my shell. When I am with him I play with my squeaky toys and I really enjoy playing in water in my kiddie pool. A friend of my foster dad comes by and takes me for walks and running too, which I enjoy.
I have been told that I am a medium energy dog. I do enjoy a good workout by playing fetch or going on runs. It helps me to keep my nerves calm. I desire a good patient leader who is kind and able to continue with my confidence building. I am crate trained and I’m learning basic obedience commands like sit, stay, drop it and wait. Though I'm not fully housetrained, I am learning not to potty in the house. I have to be honest I have no experience with kids and the ones I have seen have made me nervous. I may be fine with kids in time but maybe to start I would be better with older ones. I’m a good looking boy and I will make the best playmate ever if given the chance. I am neutered, micro chipped and up to date on my vaccinations. The only thing I am missing is my forever home. Can you help me with that? If so go to newhopecattledogs.com and fill out my adoption application. I promise you won’t be sorry!
