Cattle Dog, Australian (Red Heeler) / Mixed Breed (Medium)
2 Years and 4 Months old
Brownie is a happy, energetic dog that loves everyone. He does well with other dogs his size and larger, we have not tested him with smaller dogs. He is better suited for a home with no more than one other dog. He tests limits with cats but ultimately is scared of assertive cats. He is high energy and needs a job to do, he is not a lazy dog that just lays around all day. He is kennel trained and knows how to sit and has gotten good at staying as well. He needs work with being on a leash but is happy to listen and learn - he just wants to please everyone! Although he loves small children (and everyone else), he doesn't quite realize his size and energy. He would be well suited for a home with an older child or active adult.

Something to Consider:
Puppies don't train themselves
If you aren’t willing to train a puppy every single day, don’t get a puppy! It isn’t a one-shot deal. You have to be dedicated. And if you aren’t making progress – find someone who can help. Enroll in a puppy training class or hire a trainer. Most cities across the nation have some sort of availability for this kind of help and at different cost levels that would fit your budget.
Puppies are going to poop a lot and pee even more; chew on everything; bite everyone; scratch people and furniture; steal things; destroy something at some point; pull on the leash; not move at all on the leash; bark; cry; beg for attention; and the list goes on. You’re going to have to walk them, bathe them, pick up everything below waist height, buy new shoes, and most importantly: TRAIN THE PUPPY NOT TO DO THESE THINGS! Ultimately, it is your responsibility to teach your puppy that this behavior is unacceptable.
Puppies turn into dogs...
