...Adoption Pending... This pretty red gal is Cora, a 1 year old Australian Cattledog who weighs about 30 pounds. Cora came to us after she was dropped at the shelter. Apparently nobody at her first home realized that she is deaf, but we figured that out quickly in rescue. Cora has been learning a lot since she got to her foster home. She has learned sit and started in the e-collar for recall. She knows to give her paw on command. She also is house and crate trained. Cora starts out nervous when meeting new people and new dogs. She is learning that folks are friendly, so just needs a slow intro before she warms right up. Due to this, she won't be placed in a home with small kids. Cora has also learned about dogs and cats. She gives the cats plenty of respect, giving them a wide berth. As for dogs, she has learned that dog pals are fun. After a polite introduction where she learns she won't be hurt, she ends up friends and likes to play. She enjoys tug of war and will fetch when other dogs are fetching. She would appreciate a home with another dog to be her pal. Cora has learned to be good on leash. She is also good in the car, so will make a wonderful adventure partner. As a bonus, despite being so young, she is lower energy for the breed. Cora does have a tendency to guard her food and treats, especially when she is in her crate. That's easy to manage. Cora's past must have been a bit scary. When someone grabs for her collar, she can sometimes be afraid and will run away. Her foster family is helping her see she is safe. For her people, Cora is a huge wiggle bum who is very excited to see her people come home. She loves playing and cuddling up to watch the happenings in the rest of the house. She is shy girl at first, but comes out of her shell and shows off her adorable puppiness. Overall, Cora is a very good girl who was simply misunderstood. Cora is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations. She is located in SoCal. Adopters must be able to meet and adopt here. We do not ship our dogs. A home visit and vet reference are required.
