Male | 1 years | Australian Cattle Dog • Mix


Name: Chief

Age: Adult

Weight (approx.): 43 pounds

Personality: Hey there! I'm Chief and boy am I eager to show you how good of a boy I can be! I can be a little excited at first but it's only because I'm really trying to be my best self. I'm looking for a forever home that loves the outdoors and going on adventures but also is ready to set up a great learning experience so I can take the word on! To start I should go to a home where I'm the only pup, since I'm still working on my manners. I just love to play and run fast in the yard. I think I would do great with kiddos since they love to play just like me but it's best if we have a meet & greet first to make sure we are a match. I hope we meet soon so I can get started on this good boy!

Medical History: I appear to be a healthy adult at this time, however it is a good idea to have me seen by your regular vet soon after adoption.

Adoption Fee: 350 + tax
