Dolly

“Dolly” – Australian Cattle Dog Blue Heeler Mix
 
Smart and eager to love!
 
Age: 2 years (DOB March 2018)
Weight: 50+ pounds
House-trained:  yes
Crate-trained:  does not use
Leash-trained:  yes
Kids:  good with older children age 10 and up
Fence:  at least 4 feet would be good
 
Hi, I’m Dolly! I’m super sweet and if you take care of me I will absolutely love you. You’re perfect for me if you’ll help me lose weight. I’m super sweet and happy, but I need to lose about 15 lbs so I can be healthier. My foster mom walks me a lot – I mean 2½ miles, once or twice a day! I get a little tired, but I always finish. Don’t worry, we go early and late to avoid the heat. I am super strong for chasing squirrels, cats, and deer so you need to be strong enough to hold me back to keep me safe.
 
I love people and I love to play with dogs. I’m still learning to play with dogs, so I might need a slow and controlled introduction. I would do well as an only dog or with another dog. I’m not sure about cats, though, I might be a little rough for them. And if you have little kids, probably not for me. I might like to herd them which means I would probably nip at their heels. I think that might make you mad so if you have kids under 10, please don’t try to adopt me.
 
I am super smart and already know several obedience commands. I think I would like to do obedience training, this would really help me learn about you and you learn about me.
 
I like treats, but like I said before, I need to lose weight so please don’t give me many, and no table scraps. I might beg for them but don’t give them to me.
 
I would love if you brushed me. I’ve been a bit stressed with all the changes and I’m shedding a lot so brushing me feels so good and will help keep your house cleaner.
 
Oh, and did I tell you I come with my own beds and toys? My human mom before Needy Paws had a hard time, her husband passed away and she had to give me up. She was really worried about me after having to give me up so she sent all my things with me so that I wouldn’t be too stressed with the change. I was in a kennel for a little while after that and before Needy Paws, and I did not like that. I didn’t eat for a week! I’m super happy now in my Needy Paws home. I love to sleep on my beds or on the cool floor; I don’t really go in a crate.
