Juno

Australian Cattle Dog

Moorhead, MN
Size
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Details
Good with kids, Good with dogs, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Juno is an amazing companion and family member. She has never met anyone she hasn't immediately loved. She is gentle with children and would never intentionally cause any harm but it should be noted that when excited she gets a bit wild and has on occasion knocked over our toddler when running by. She's always eager to learn new skills. She is a little overweight partially due to the toddler food scraps she has gotten her paws on over the last few years. She loves cuddles and going on long walks and would make a great addition to an active family. We adopted her back in 2021 and don't know much about her first months of life but we have our suspicions that it was not very easy. She is pretty submissive and on the few occasions she has been around "raised voices" she tends to cringe or hide. She would probably be unhappy in an unstable or highly argumentative family. Juno really is the best creature I have ever met (humans included). We would keep her in a heartbeat if it were feasible.

Story
We adopted Rascal 3yrs ago. He is a loved family dog that was dealt the unfortunate circumstance of a new baby in the home having dog allergies. We don't want to get rid of him but we simply have to. He is a dog that likes to just exist he's not a wild dog unless he sees food or someone he loves and he leaps in excitement. He does love to hear himself bark and wears a bark collar when outside because of this trait. He cannot have food down at all times, he will guard his food. He needs to be fed, and then have the dish put up. He loves walks, but needs some assistance with leash training as he likes to pull. He will need to be leashed or in a fence area as he likes to roam- mostly loves to find bodies of water to swim in! He does have a dog sister whom we are also rehoming, so does do great with other dogs! When we adopted Rascal, they told us he was around 3, but the vet we brought him to mentioned he was predicted to be closer to 1 at that time.
