About Sonora

Adoption Fee: $350
Australian Cattle Dog
Age: Puppy
Sex: Female

This red gal is Sonora. She is an Australian Cattledog who is just over a year old and weighs about 33 pounds. Sonora came to us as a mom and, now that her pups are weaned, she is ready to find a home of her own. In her foster home, Sonora has learned her basics: Sit, down, stay, and wait. She is also house and crate trained. So far, Sonora has been nice with dogs her size and larger. She does play with the Labs in her foster home. She has also been polite meeting the donkeys in her foster home. She started chasing the cats but is learning to leave them alone when asked. An adoptive home with cats would require dog savvy cats and people patient with dog/cat introductions. Sonora is a very active girl. Her ideal home has property to play on. She will fetch all day long, if possible. She also loves squeaky toys! If her new home doesn't ah e property, her ideal home keeps her active throughout the day. This isn't a gal who is ok with a walk a day. She so good on leash and in the car, so she could be a wonderful adventure partner. Her adopters have to understand that she hasn't been in a busy neighborhood or busy public places, so will need someone patient in showing her that life isn't scary. Once Sonora knows that someone os her person, she is very loyal and loving. She craves attention and loves to cuddle. She likes to be a lap dog! When she has met quiet and polite older kids, she has been nice with them. Sonora needs a quiet home that will continue to work with her. She starts out very guarded with new people and will require polite introductions to ensure she knows she doesn't have to keep herself safe. One person came into the yard unannounced, and she nipped at his hands but didn't break skin. Her foster home has made sure that new people, especially men, go slow and free treats to become friends. Therefore, a home with lots of visitors isn't a great fit for her. Sonora 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.
