Almost all DCHS and Wildlife Center services are by appointment only. If you found a lost animal, need to surrender a pet, found wildlife in need of help, or require another service, please call before coming to the shelter.


Dog | Male | Age: 4 | Australian Cattle Dog | Spayed/Neutered

Dude is an eager and energetic dog always ready to do tricks for treats, vacuum the kitchen floor for crumbs or hunt for sniffs on a walk/hike. Although Dude has a lot of energy he also like to cuddle up in your arms or on his favorite bed. He loves chest scratches and “washing machine” tummy rubs. Dude is a loyal companion that will be your shadow wherever you go.

Other Animals
Dude needs a proper introduction to any potential brothers and sisters due to general anxiety around new humans and animals.

Medical History
Dude is up to date on all vaccines and just had his early check up on April 11th, 2022. He is very healthy with no major health concerns. Dude has started Fluoxetine recently to help with anxiety.

Ideal Home
Dude would be best in a home by himself without other animals until he has received proper behavioral training. I am unsure how Dude interacts with children.

Physical Description
Dude is a 25lb Australian Cattle dog, red heeler, mostly white with red spots. He has red ears and a red spot above his bum.
