Children must be 12 years or older Yahoo, my name is Dozer and I cannot wait to meet you. I originally came to Washington County HS in Slinger, WI from an over-crowded shelter in Mississippi and although the cold is tough on a pup's paws I love the snowfalls. A wonderful family fell in love with me and took me home. I was making progress on my house-training, about three-quarters the way there, being comfortable in a crate, was getting exercise and started some training but I had dog roommates and it just wasn't working out. I learned that I do not like to live with other dogs; I want my people all to myself. Therefore, I must be the only dog in the home; I like to be the king of the castle and have all of the attention. I also cannot share a home with any cats because they are way too much fun to chase and torment; I would be relentless. Any children in my new home must be 12 years or older so that they can join in with my training. I tend to guard my food bowl and also need calm, assertive owners who will help me be the best dog I can be. My new family must have experience with dogs of my breed. Cattle dogs are intelligent and adventurous souls who are meant to work independently. That means that we can exhibit some behavior challenges because we think we know better. I have been described as friendly, playful and tolerant but they also say I am stubborn and like to do things on my terms. That is why I need an owner who understands the challenges a herding dog can present. I am super smart, very trainable and I just know I can be a stupendous community member with your help; I think I would also be a spectacular candidate for lots of other training. I LOVE squeaky toys, they draw me like a magnet. I have discovered that I am quite the surgeon and can remove the squeaker in record speed. I weigh about 50 pounds right now but I am just a pup so I do plan on getting bigger. I am an active boy and will need structure, discipline and exercise every day. Brain games and mental challenges will help keep my mind busy, too. I am a confident little pup who is ready to take on this world with gusto. Stop by to meet me in person and see how electrifying I am.
