New adoptable puppy: PEPPERONI

Here is another pup in our “meaty pups” litter of Great Dane/Australian Cattle Dog/LeMutte pups!

Pepperoni (a girl whose nickname is “Gecko” because of the shape of the white on her chest) is one of the smaller pups. She is vocal, likes to be at the center of attention, and is playful with the other pups but also very human-oriented.

See her full listing, including video, on our DOGS page.

New adoptable pup: BRATWURST

Bratwurst and siblings arrived as a Stop the Cycle litter; Forget Me Not has spayed the mother dog (a Great Dane/Australian Cattle Dog mix) and returned her to her owner, and we will now find great homes for the pups. They were born on March 22, 2013. Father is unknown (may be more than one for this litter). Some of the pups look like they may have some Labrador Retriever or Pitbull in the mix, along with a healthy dose of “who knows what” – they are true “LeMutte” pups!

The entire litter is very well socialized, and the pups are currently together in a foster home where they are encountering adult dogs, cats, and chickens. They are all curious, outgoing, and very happy, and should do well in every type of home and family.

New adoptable dog: JOJO



JoJo is an amazing, affectionate, athletic Australian cattle dog (red heeler) girl, who was sentenced to a term at the shelter for the crime of chicken murder. She is a slightly overweight, mature girl – her owner doesn’t know how old she is, as she arrived with them as an adult stray, but we are guessing she is about 7 years old. You wouldn’t know it from watching her fetch, though – you can see her excitement and enthusiasm in her eyes as soon as you pick up *anything* to throw for her! It comes across beautifully in her photos, too.

JoJo is housetrained, good with other dogs, good on leash, and an easy keeper (as long as you don’t raise poultry). She has all the classic heeler behaviors so could potentially be a working dog, . . . → Read More: New adoptable dog: JOJO

New adoptable dog: PETER


Peter is a fun and frisky almost-5-month-old border collie/Australian cattle dog mix boy. His owner received him as a gift, but he is too energetic for her (note to anyone considering giving puppies as gifts to elderly relatives – it is a bad idea). He was born January 7, 2011, and has all the energy and mischievousness you’d expect from his breed mix!

He is eager to play, and seems to be very smart, though his excitement at having people and other dogs to play with tends to give him a short attention span. He doesn’t seem to be at all shy, and has met lots of dogs and different people. His owner reports that he is “partially” housetrained; we find many of the juvenile pups start to naturally housetrain while at the shelter, because they . . . → Read More: New adoptable dog: PETER

New adoptable dog: Dewey


Dewey is a super handsome and sweet Australian cattle dog mix boy. He has the red heeler coloring, and long legs from some other breed in his mix (shepherd? retriever? spaniel? who knows); Dewey weighs roughly 55 pounds. He was born 10/20/08, and has lived with one family since he was just 6 weeks old… but now he must find a new home because his family is moving where Dewey cannot go. He is staying with his original family in an “owner foster” situation for us, and we all hope he will find his new home before he has to be left behind and moved into the shelter.

Dewey is a very smart boy, with a stubborn streak (ha). He loves people, is very affectionate, and enjoys sleeping next to his peoples’ bed. Dewey is housetrained . . . → Read More: New adoptable dog: Dewey
