  5. Children over the age of 8 years

Zealan is one of a litter of 7 adorable Australian Cattle Dog/Smithfield Cattle Dog puppies in care with Nova Pooch Rescue. Zealan is a little different from his brothers and sister in that he is the only red and blue pup. His father is a purebred Smithfield Cattle Dog, which is a forerunner of the Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog breed.


Australian Cattle Dogs are working dogs. They are devoted, cheeky, playful and smart, with the emphasis on smart. They are so intelligent they must be kept busy and active in body and mind or they will amuse themselves with undesirable behaviour. So they need a family that is actively involved in their training and sets consistent boundaries right from the start. They are not suitable to be shut alone in a backyard with nothing to do for hours on end. Toys to keep them occupied, at least one or preferably two runs per day, another dog for company and playtime and lots and lots of time with their beloved human family is just what these dogs need. Raised and trained properly, with firm boundaries in place, these dogs make wonderful family companions.


If you would like to meet Zealan he would love to see you. He is waiting for you at Kurri Kurri, NSW. Both of his parents can be seen at the same time.
