My name is Painter because I look like I might have had a run in with a paint brush. I am 2 months old. Here's a little about me. I was found by the pound wandering around looking for my family after I got lost. I was brought to the Maricopa County East Side Shelter. I waited patiently for my family to come find me and they never did. One day a nice lady came and picked me up and brought me to my foster home. My foster mom says I'm a cool puppy. She likes how smart I am and that I am house-broke (I will bark at the door to alert you of my need to be let out). I know to sit, wait and I can even lie down. Okay, I actually need some bribing to lie down but I will do it. I ride quietly in the car, I love kids, I really enjoy being outdoors and playing in a yard, I am crate trained too. My foster mom says I have something called “good recall”. I don't know what that is but she says I am good at it. I eat my meals side by side with my foster siblings with no issues. My foster siblings have been teaching me how to play tug of war with them and tag and it's really fun. I also like to play all by myself with my toys. Did I mention I have a sock fetish? I have short bursts of puppy excitement but my foster mom says I am actually a very mellow well-behaved boy. I have never seen a cat yet but I am young enough so that I could be taught to not torment a cat. If you’re looking for a fun-loving, cool guy I am your man. My foster mom recommends that I go to a home with older children due to my sharp puppy teeth. I am neutered, micro-chipped and have had my shots. If you think we'd be a good match and would like to meet me please submit your application now.
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.
