Shakespeare (above and below) is an Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler) with a winning smile. He had a broken pelvis when he first came to the shelter, but received treatment and is doing very well; he is available for adoption from Atlanta Pet Rescue and Adoption, Inc. in Smyrna, Ga.
Willow is a sweet and funny female Australian Cattle dog (Blue Heeler) with lots of spunk! She is a sweet girl that loves her people. She can sit, shake, and down. Willow is VERY smart and like most cattle dogs has a lot of energy and will need an active owner that can keep her learning things, playing, or giving her another type of job to keep her busy. They tend to get into trouble if they get bored. She could be a great working dog for cattle, or do competition herding. She would also be a great candidate as an agility dog. Willow is good with other dogs, although is a dominant female and does not need to be placed in a home with another dominant female.
Willow is good with kids, very sweet, HOWEVER – Willow does not tolerate kids running, her herding instincts kick in and she tries to “herd” them. So no smaller children, older dog savvy children preferred. Willow is available for adoption from Country Livin’ Pet Rescue in Monroe, Ga.
