Zack is one of a litter of 7 adorable Australian Cattle Dog/Smithfield Cattle Dog puppies in care with Nova Pooch Rescue. He has a blue and white coat and is the quietest one of the bunch, maybe not quite so outgoing as his brothers and sister. So if you are looking for a doggie companion who is a little more subdued Zack could be the fellow for you. His father is a purebred Smithfield Cattle Dog, a forerunner of the Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog breed. Zack, however, has the normal length tail of the Australian Cattle Dog.
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.
Zack would love a forever family of his very own. He is waiting to meet you at Kurri Kurri, NSW. Both of his parents can be seen at the same time.
