Cali's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Cali's Story...
This is Cali, a three year old German Shepherd /Australian Cattle Dog cross. She is a very sweet, medium sized dog, although she a bit shy after the first chapter of her life. She is slowly opening up as she realizes she has begun the best part of her life now.

She has a nice shiny, short, black and tan coat, with cute ears that may be floppy or stick right up depending on her mood. She looks older than three, as she has some premature grey around her muzzle, but it just shows off her smile. A bonus is that she hardly sheds! Cali is about 40 pounds, a great size for just about anything. If you are a true dog lover, and are a patient caring person, Cali could be the dog for you.

Cali was found wandering around the countryside, alone and abandoned, and she was taken to the pound. Pound Dog Rescue rescued her from the pound and she was enjoying the fresh air with the windows down during her car ride to freedom. Cali enjoys car rides and is a great traveling companion. Cali loves attention and will need someone who will take the time to groom her and especially clean her teeth, but good news: she loves all of the above!

Cali has showed us that she doesn’t always trust humans right away, however with time she has opened up to her foster family and is a very happy girl. Cali has perfected shaking a paw, especially if she wants to be petted, which is all the time. She loves any affection she receives and will sit calmly for as long as you want to pet her for. We don’t feel she received a lot of affection in her previous home so she will take all she can get now. Cali is curious and gentle with most dogs if they introduce themselves nicely and give her a bit of space. She is also becoming a little playful with her foster family and German Shepherd sister and they like playing tag once in a while. Cali would do great in a quieter home, as she startles easily by loud noise and needs time to become more comfortable and learn that a dog’s life can be a great life! She could use a four-legged friend if they are also quiet and gentle with her, however she is not a fan of cats. She is great with kids and welcomes gentle petting, and has never shown any aggression towards anyone. If she gets a little scared, she just quietly backs away. We would not recommend a home with small children for Cali though as she does prefer a calm and quiet household.

Although she is already great dog, Cali will need to be enrolled in some training classes. She understands some of the basics, and with practice she will become an obedient dog. She is learning that listening to her master is rewarding and fun! We are working on Cali’s training in her foster home and she is doing very well. Her new family will have a head start in obedience school and Cali will be a star.

When it comes to being housetrained, Cali has it down pat. She doesn’t tell you when she needs to go, but she doesn’t do her business inside, and she has no problem doing it on or off leash. We just take her out regularly and she goes every time. She has never had an accident indoors.

Once she trusts you, Cali enjoys being handled, making it very easy to trim her nails, brush her and clean her teeth! She doesn’t put up a fuss for anything. She is crate trained and loves going into her crate when asked to “go to bed.” You won’t hear a peep from her all night. She also enjoys finding a nice quiet corner to catch up on her Z’s. Once in a while she enjoys spoiling herself by taking a snooze on the couch, especially if someone is there to curl up with.

Cali will make a wonderful best friend. She is such a sweet, quiet dog, and she deserves a great home with a new family that will show her that dogs really do have a great life. She is a little unsure when you reach for her collar, but when she knows where she’s supposed to go she’ll beat you there! She needs a couple good walks a day to ensure she gets the exercise she needs. She is learning to walk alongside her master and sometimes takes a pause to enjoy everything around her.

Cali needs some patience, understanding and love to be the best dog she can be. You will get all of that back and then some from her!

An adoption donation of $400 is required. This helps cover our costs for veterinary care including spay/neuter, vaccines, microchip, heartworm test, deworming and whatever else the dog may require.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cali, a Drumbo German Shepherd Dog/Australian Cattle Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog/Australian Cattle Dog for sale in Drumbo, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog/Australian Cattle Dog dog from a breeder in Drumbo.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Drumbo already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Drumbo breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even German Shepherd Dog/Australian Cattle Dog breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog/Australian Cattle Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Drumbo paves the way for another one to be saved.
