Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Corgi Mix Age: 2 yrs Weight: 35 pounds Diego came to us from the shelter and presented a slight hind leg limp. Apparently, before we met him, he'd suffered a broken pelvis that was likely not treated resulting in his right back leg healing poorly. In our care he received surgery that corrected this condition and thru foster care rehab, he's running and walking like new! When he first went to his foster family, he was extremely scared of everything. It took him a few months to start interacting with his foster family. He gets scared with sudden movements, loud noises, brooms, vacuums and even balls or toys thrown in his direction. Even though he is scared, he is not aggressive. On the contrary, he is a very sweet dog, gentle with kids, adults and other dogs. He enjoys going out for a long walk and he does very well on a leash. He would love a house with a big backyard (apartment living isn't good for him) and an active family to take him to a park, jogging or hiking. We are requiring his new home to have at least one other dog as he likes to play and it will help him build his confidence. Because Diego is part Australian Cattle dog, he is very intelligent, observes your routine carefully, figures out what he is supposed to do, how to get out of a barrier, let you know it is time to eat and magic words like: let's go out, treat! He would enjoy and do very well with some training that challenges his sharp brain. Don't be fooled by his short legs (Corgi part), he has tons of muscles and working instinct (cattle dog part). He requires a good amount of exercise and training otherwise he gets bored and stressed ending up chewing nice pillows, shoes or stuffed animals! Must haves: 1) Fenced yard to run and play in; another dog is required 2) Family who will provide training & activities to keep his brain challenged; daily walks 3) Owners with some experience with fearful dogs Diego's adoption fee is $400.00. He is neutered, up to date on shots, and microchipped. He will go to his new home with a collar, ID tag and harness.
