Facts about Grace

  • Breed: Australian Cattle Dog Mix
  • Color: Brindle - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Grace is a loving, friendly girl who is 3.5 years old. She is being re-homed due to a move. She is a sweet dog who is good with children and other dogs. Her mom says, "Grace has the sweetest, most patient and self-controlled personality--loving and sociable to-the-max. Grace does 'live to herd' but does it with self-control and in the house, doesn't have to wait for outdoor space--she's so appropriate and always wanting to please or do the right thing! Grace loves your attention, will gently paw at you to be petted, and is easily redirected with "down" and lots of belly-rubs. She loves to sleep on the couch or my favorite chair, curling onto her back like a pretzel. Grace seems to have an intuitive respect and accommodation of other dogs' needs or temperaments. She does well on the leash on sidewalk (likes to be out in front of you), walking trails, sits & waits for her meals, willingly goes into her crate, and never chews or has accidents in the house. She is a real GEM!" She also loves to play, so we recommend she go to a home with another playful dog, or people willing to shower her with attention. Grace needs a yard - no apartments or condos. Grace is very smart! She is also house-broken and crate-trained! Grace is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. This girl will be a great companion and best friend! Speaking of best friends - Grace was adopted originally with another puppy named Sandy, who is seen in one of the pictures. It is not 100% necessary that they be adopted together, but they do love each other very much, so please consider a two-some! Grace's adoption fee is $100 or $150 for both Sandy and Grace! If you are interested in meeting Grace, please email or text your email address to 602-295-4518 to request an adoption application.

About AZ Prussian Snailhound Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

AZ Prussian Snailhound Dog Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit organization that is committed to providing rescue and safe-haven for dogs in need. Most of the dogs we rescue are of mixed breeds. When we are out with our dogs and people ask, "What kind of dog is that?", my husband replies by saying, "It is a rare Prussian Snailhound. They are popular in Europe." Each Prussian Snailhound is unique and deserves a loving home! Please open your heart and your home to a rescue dog!

Our major focus is the rescue of stray dogs from the Ft. McDowell Indian Reservation. Since July 2009 we have worked with other groups to rescue over 300 dogs and puppies. These are amazingly sweet dogs that have had to live off of the land and brave extreme heat, cold, rain, drought, coyotes, rattlesnakes, hunger, traffic and people who try to harm them. They deserve to have a proper home. This started out as a mission to save about 30 dogs who hung out behind the casino, as the casino managers saw them as a nuisance and were threatening to poison or shoot the dogs. We ended up saving way more dogs as we became aware that the problem extended far beyond the casino. Some of the adult dogs are extremely fearful of humans at first and require extensive rehabilitation in order to learn how to trust and become a member of the family. Once they realize how good home life is, they will be your best friend for life!

In addition to the rescue and rehabilitation of dogs from the Ft. McDowell Indian Reservation, it is our goal to work closely with the tribe to educate people who live on the Reservation about spay/neuter and to facilitate a low cost spay/neuter program. So far in 2011, 148 pets have been spayed/neutered on the Reservation!
