Breed: Australian Cattle Dog


Age: 1 year

Personality: Alaska is looking for a best friend. Can you be hers? She is so loyal to her humans that it is sad her people were not the same to her. (Alaska's former parent left her at the shelter after they split up.) Like a guardian, she follows you where ever you go and listens very well. Alaska also loves playing with other dogs and has a great temperament. She is highly intelligent and is a quick learner. We can imagine her shining in agility and other dog sports.

Training: House manners and socialization, knows "sit"

Potty trained: Yes

History: Alaska was left at the shelter after her parents split up. Alaska is confused of this big change and takes a couple of days to adjust to her a new home.

Type of home: Alaska would be happiest in a home where she will have a playmate.

Crate trained: Yes

Good with Dogs: Yes

Good with Kids: Older children
