Hi my name is Amberlyn aka Amber. I’m a young girl about 10 months old. I'm a very sweet girl and I’m looking for my forever home. Here is a little about me: Before I came to NHCD, I lived with a very nice family but then they lost our home and they couldn't keep me anymore so they turned me in to the Apache Junction shelter. Then this nice lady came to meet me and the next thing I knew I was out of the shelter and taken to my foster home. There were other dogs there. I was a little nervous at first but then I realized I was safe. I love to run and play ball and I even like to play by myself. I think it is really fun to throw the toy up in the air and run around. I like to be with other dogs that are nice and want to play. I would like to have a brother to play with or even being the only dog is great. I like kids although I’m not too sure about the cats, but I can be cat tested to make sure that I can live with them. I'm a pretty smart girl. I know basic commands such as sit, wait, and I walk very well on the leash. I love going for car rides; I just curl up in a ball and go to sleep. I'm housebroken, crate trained and doggie door trained, spayed up-to-date on shots and microchipped. I'm not a high energy girl but I love to go for walks and play or just cuddle with you. Do you have room in your home for a sweet girl like me?
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 you can meet an adoptable dog, an adoption application (http://www.nhcdarizona.com/forms/adopt.pdf) 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.
We adopt to families all over the world. We only intake dogs from Arizona.
