Stumpy takes a break from her silliness to ponder the ACDs in rescues and shelters everywhere and hopes they find their forever homes, soon!
As a rescue operation New Hope Cattle Dogs Rescue (NHCD) is a shining example of responsibility. NHCD goes beyond rescue and re-homing. They address public education and relations with regards to Cattle Dog ownership. Their website is a wealth of facts and information. They cover topics including training, nutrition, health and genetics, and much, much more. Links on their website can lead you to more information, in order that someone can make informed decisions with regards to their own ACD or perhaps, bringing an ACD into their home.
Visit NHCDog Rescue website and read about their successful adoptions, from the adopters point of view.
I KNOW the dogs in this video think NHCD rock!
Having been involved in rescuing and rehabbing dogs for many years, I have my opinions on what constitutes a good rescue. Security and support for both the dog and it's adopted family are a priority in legitimate and responsible rescue. With a homecheck, contract, microchipping, trial period and education NHCD does it's best to ensure a lifetime parnership for everyone.
There are more dogs in the rescue program at NHCDogs.
Misty is about 2 years old. and she iz sweet, sweet, sweet!
She was found homeless and pregnant along the side of the road by a nice man took her to his home, where she gave birth to five puppies (who have all found homes). From there she went to the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, and wasn't doing well, in that environment. The Humane Society sent her to a wonderful foster home and then New Hope took her in.
Misty is thriving in her foster home. She is very obedient and knows some basic commands. Misty gets along well with some dogs and is learning about cats.
Tibby is an 11 month old ACD.
She is unilaterally deaf (hearing in left ear only.)
Tibby was an owner surrender due to some aggression issues. She WAS very protective over the females in her home and felt the need to guard against men. Her foster mom has worked with her, extensively, and she is able to walk on leash, sit , stay, down, and "place." Tibby will even walk off leash once she knows you.
Tibby is housebroken and crate trained. She loves to play ball! Tibby will need to be placed in a home where a woman can continue to work with her. Males would take a secondary role in showing her how to love and trust.
Zeva is in foster care with New Hope because she wasn't doing well at the Humane Society in Tucson. The kennel environment caused her stress and made her nervous.
Zeva is thriving in her foster home. She enjoys the company of other dogs and loves to go to the dog park. She is a "velcro" dog and wants to be close to her human and loves to snuggle! She does have some seperation anxiety issues and needs to be kenneled when left alone.
Zeva is working on her manners and already knows sit and down. She is good with kids and other dogs so an active family would be perfect!
