Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler)
Border Collie, Mix
An adotable dog in Chadds Ford, PA
Capone is a 1 year - old HANDSOME medium sized dog (he weighs approximately 45 lbs). We believe he is an Australian Cattle blend, but have no way of knowing for sure. Capone came to us a very frightened, unsocialized (yet super sweet and gentle) dog who was totally shut down mentally and trembled with fear. In the past few months he has made great progress. He cuddles with his foster family, gives non-stop kisses and hugs, and wants to be with his family at all times. This is common of the breed. He also LOVES, LOVES, LOVES his doggie siblings and is most comfortable in the presence of other dogs, especially playful, well-balanced, affection dogs. Capone and his foster siblings Princeton and Bella can frequently be found kissing each other, playing a 3-way tug-of-war, and cuddling during a nap! He shares toys and food with no issue. Therefore, he will only be able to be adopted into a home with a well-balanced/adjusted dog to help him continue to build his confidence.
He will also need to go to a home that has experience with the breed and an unsocialized dog. His progress thus far shows he is more than willing and able to be a well-rounded and confident boy, he just needs the help of a loving, patient and knowledgeable family willing to put in the effort to get the reward of this special boy's love and loyalty.
While wary of strangers, ACDs bond closely to their family. Always alert, extremely intelligent, watchful, courageous and trustworthy, with an implicit devotion to duty making it an ideal dog.
