Major's Story...
Birthdate: 3/13/12

Gender: Male, neutered

Breed: Australian Cattle Dog mix

Siblings: Major, Gunner, Nala, Keebler, Snorkey, Kelly

Household a little chaotic? Worried about how a new dog will be with your kids? Haha! Major laughs at the thought of a houshold that’s too active for him!

This boy might be little, but he can handle any situation. After all, he’s living with five kids, starting at 5 years old, right now, and he’s loving every minute of it.

And what is there not to love? He’s constantly surrounded by lots of people who love to pet him and play with him.. .. lots of laps to sit on and hands to scratch behind his ears.. .. lots of little people to chase and be chased by.. .. and most importantly, lots of little ones to snuggle with when it’s time to settle down for the night.

Yes, Major loves everything about kids, and he only hopes that there are some little ones in his future home.

This little boy was one of six wiggling balls of fur born to an almost-pure Australian Cattle Dog (dad) and an Australian Cattle Dog mix (mom). Their owners never planned on having pups. In fact, they already had appts to have both parents fixed when their mother went into heat, and that was that. Thankfully, they got all of the pups into our Better Beginnings program so they could find wonderful new homes, and now Mom and Dad are both fixed, so there won’t be any more little surprises.

Based on their current size and parents, we’re expecting the pups to be 30 to 40 pounds as adults, so potential adopters should plan on a medium-sized dog once they’re all grown up.

He is already fully housebroken and crate trained, but Major is still very young, so you should expect a few accidents in the beginning as he gets used to your home and routine. He has also been leash trained and knows his basic obedience commands.

Major loves cats and is currently sharing his foster home with one cat. He also gets along well with other dogs, but he does prefer to be with dogs who are larger than him (40 pounds or larger).

Interested in meeting Major? He is currently in foster care, but he would love to meet you. Please call 330–397–8270 to schedule an appt to meet him at the shelter. He has already been neutered, fully vaccinated, dewormed and flea treated, so he’s ready to join your family right away.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Major, a Struthers Australian Cattle Dog puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Cattle Dog for sale in Struthers, or seeking a Australian Cattle Dog puppy from a breeder in Struthers.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Struthers 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 Struthers 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 Struthers paves the way for another one to be saved.
