    OT: Australian Cattle Dogs

    We are looking for an Australian Cattle Dog to add to our dog family. Anyone know of a local rescue or good place to find one that needs a home?

    make sure you know what you are getting into... they are not for the lazy owner. they need to be worked and have a purpose.

    Oh we know! We have a very active 3 year old Australian Shepherd that desperately needs a play mate.

    Dirthead!!!! My sister (Robin) is part of a new rescue group called Arizona Cattledog Rescue and they've dubbed me a "rescue associate" since I've hooked up so many mtn biking friends with rescued cattledogs. Every mountain biker needs a cattledog!

    See their available pets at:
    http://www.arizonacattledogrescue.or...able_Dogs.html
    http://www.petfinder.com/pet-search?shelter_id=AZ403

    Also find them on Facebook:
    http://www.facebook.com/pages/Arizon...0278652?v=info

    As is typical, the list is not exactly up-to-date. They even just took in a beautiful Australian Shepherd that they could not turn away.

    On Sunday this weekend, many of the dogs available for adoption will be at a "Yappy Hour" up in far NE Scottsdale. This is a once-a-month gathering where all the rescue folks and cowdog enthusiasts (I have three) get together to socialize our dogs and just have fun. Let me know if you need more details on any of this!!

    The puppy at the end of this video will probably be available soon from ACDR.

    Small world! I recognize Sherry at the end of the video! Didn't know she was fostering a new pup.

    Thanks for the info everyone!

    Durtgurl, If you would pm me more info on the "Yappy Hour" event, we would love to stop by! We are in N. Phoenix, so it should be fairly close to us.

    Thanks!!

    Just wanted to post another option for anyone searching for a new best friend: http://petharbor.com/WelcomeFrameSet.htm

    Its a great search and their database is current within the hour. If an animal is adopted, or unfortunately, put down their listing is gets removed almost instantly.

    Thanks for hooking us up Kathleen! We are glad to have her. She will make a great addition to the family. We did change her name. Since her markings make her look like she's wearing pants, and she is a blue heeler, we named her Levi.

    She is worn out........
