Available! Meet Curly Sue!
Curly Sue is an 8 month old, 20 lb, tiny female Australian Cattle Dog mix with the curliest hair we’ve ever seen! Her whiskers are even curly. She has one blue eye and one half-brown, half-blue eye and as if that isn’t unique enough, she also has three legs! She is up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, and has been spayed.
Curly Sue is a sweetheart with people and loves most anyone she meets. She loves other dogs and is fine with cats (but may chase them if they run, though not aggressively). One of her favorite things to do is play with toys - she will throw them in the air and try to catch them, or want you to throw them for her. She is very intelligent and picks up new commands quickly, and has a pretty good recall as well as “sit”, “leave it”, and “down”. She also is house trained and lets you know when she needs to go out, and does just fine in a crate too, though she is pretty uncertain about car rides still.
This girl is a character and has a LOT of sass! She would do best in a home with active adults and maybe a friendly, playful dog to pal around with and play with. She does love to play with other dogs! She is athletic and loves to run full-out, but will require a home with a secure fenced yard because we are pretty sure that her leg had to be amputated following a run-in with a car she was chasing. She is also still learning not to nip when playing, so older children are a must (ages 12 and up, please). She does like interaction from both people and dogs, and would do best in a home that is looking for a dog to train and interact with. She has a lovely off-switch though and after a big romp in the yard, enjoys chilling on the couch.
