- COURTESY POST for DOGSHOPE.COM (Lake County, Ohio) -
Lizzie is a high energy, high toy-drive Australian cattle dog mix, approximately 2.5 years old.
"She loves to play fetch all day..... she will cuddle you to death and kiss your ear..... loves to put her head on your chest and cuddle you like a child would do.... loves to fetch sticks as well as tennis balls. very loyal dog to her master, and a good watch dog. she needs lots of love, so whom ever takes her.... every night rub her ear and say you’re a great girl..... she has a chip in her for returning her to the right person, she has had her shots and is spayed.
Lizzie needs a family that will keep her busy with walks, play time with toys, even possibly making a fun agility course in the basement and or back yard by using house hold items, spending money on this is not a necessity.
UPDATE - this is what her foster mom says:
I know I have only had Bizzy Lizzy 1 day but this is what I do know about her, She is EXTREMELY intelligent, probably one of the smartest dogs I have ever had. She is very active and understands many commands. She sure does love her ball. I bought her a Frisbee today and we were outside playing with it. She soon was catching it and bringing it back to me. She understands when I say drop it. She does it. She waits patiently for you to throw her ball or what ever it may be.
She waits for the ok to do something she is not sure if she is allowed to do. I think she would do great in a home who is active, jogger or beach bum. Some one who is very willing to commit to playing with her a least 1 hr each day and she will be happy. She is truly a loyal and loving dog if she gets the right family who understands this breed. She by no means should go with small children and should be a only dog as she has NO fear what so ever. She is no couch potato that is for sure."

Rescue Group Info...
We work very closely with local Rescue Organizations, including Tracking Lucky Dogs Rescue and Lake Erie German Shepherd Rescue. Occasionally, these Rescues come across dogs that have a difficult times being placed in regular home environments (with young kids, other animals) for various reasons – including high levels of energy and high prey drive, coupled with lack of previous training.
That is where we step in. After a preliminary temperament screening, the dogs are taken through a structured play-and-train program. They go through basic or advanced obedience (depending on the dog’s maturity and previous exposure to training), with emphasis on off-leash recall and off-leash stationary positions (down-stay, sit-stay).
Our goal is to help them find the best possible path in life, to fulfill their potential and become the superstars they were meant to be.
Call or email to schedule a meet-and-greet with one of our dogs. All adoption events are held on site at our training center.
Our adoption fees vary from dog to dog.
All our dogs are obedience-trained, house-trained, up to date on vaccines and altered.
You must have previous experience with the particular breed listed. These dogs are exceptional young adults (stable, social, confident) with strong working drives, and they need a structured home environment. They would excel in homes with active lifestyles or involved in dog sports.
References will be checked and a home visit will be required. An adoption contract will be signed after application approval.
Adopters are strongly encouraged to continue the training of their new family member. Our adoption fees include two free training sessions with High Drive Pups (http://highdrivepups.com).
