I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Hi there! My name is Sadie and I was brought back from Rocky Point Mexico with my brother, Sergio, where we'd been abandoned. I am about 3 years old. During my time in Mexico, I had suffered a traumatic injury to my left tibia. It was somewhat healed, and surprisingly, somewhat straight, but I had a nasty infection that required me to have surgery. With love, care and antibiotics, it has healed nicely. I have no permanent damage such as a limp. I love to go on walks and get along with most everyone except other female dogs. I am a very loving and trusting companion despite everything I have been through. I am a little shy at first, but once I warm up, I'm your best buddy! I am a low energy and very docile cattle dog, but when you are ready for a walk, I'm always ready to go! When it is time to rest, you won't even know I am there! I am house-broken, crate-trained, love to go for car rides, I'm up-to-date on my shots, micro-chipped and ready for my new home. I would love a family to call my own. Is that you? Please contact New Hope Cattle Dog Rescue to meet 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 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.
