Ruff Ruff! My name is Strawberry
|Breed:||Australian Cattle Dog||Color:||Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut||Age:||Young|
|Size:||Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)||Sex:||Female|
I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
My foster mom rescued me from animal control. At first, I was a little unsure about my new pack but I have really come to like my foster brothers Remi and Curly. The three of us play and run around the yard together. I don’t even mind Curly chewing on my ears. Even though I like playing, I really like being with my foster parents. I follow one of them around when they move about the house and often will just curl up somewhere in the room just to stay near them. I don’t have any bad habits like getting on the furniture or stealing things off the counter. I also don’t have a problem sharing my food with the other dogs. I do really like being petted and getting attention. I will make my presence known when you bend over to tie your shoes!
I’ll make a great dog for anyone who does not have cats or small animals. If you live in a small house or apartment, I’ll be fine. I’m quiet in the house and am content to just hang out with you. If you have a yard or like going for walks, I have some energy for that too.

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.
