Guacamole is looking for a forever home. Guac is a bright, approximately year old puppy who would love to find a forever family. He is an Australian Cattle Dog mix who weighs about 48 pounds, has a white coat with dilute black and brown spots scattered about his body and the backs of his ears are all spots. Guac has one brown eye and one blue/brown eye. His mannerisms and behavior are 100% Australian Cattle Dog. If you know the ACD breed you already know he needs a home where there is a good amount of daily activity & interaction - he loves walks, chasing balls, car rides and adores playing with toys especially rope & squeak toys. He also enjoys tug games with rope toys, treat puzzles and learning tricks. Guacamole does great with other dogs of all varieties and happily adjusts his play to accommodate pups of all sizes from shitzu to shepard. He is treat/praise motivated & has a keen prey drive. He really loves car rides and is always hoping to tag along. Guac is an epic snuggle bug and loves to get right next to you and enjoys laying next to foster mom on the sofa watching a movie or catching a nap. He is crate trained, fully housebroken and equally happy sleeping in the big bed or in his own dog bed nearby. He is a very bright dog and would be phenomenal at agility, scent work or trick work. He is all working dog breeds and would do best in an active home.

 

Guac is a total ladies’ man and is much more comfortable around women and can be shy around men but does warm up over time. He has done great with the respectful teen kids at his current foster home but he was shy the first few weeks. Not tested with young children but my guess is he would be too rambunctious for little kids. Something in Guacamole’s past has left him cautious when being leashed and he tends to get fearful with this. He is making progress but will need additional work and patience with this in his next home. 

 

Velcro dog warning - if Guacamole likes you - you will never shower or go to the bathroom alone again.  Guacamole will quickly steal your heart - he may also steal your sandwich if you leave it unattended on the counter as he is still very much a puppy and has been known to counter surf. Up to date on vaccines, neutered, house trained, crate trained and ready to be your constant companion. Everyone that gets to know him remarks at how sweet this boy is - all he needs is a home of his own. Any questions or meet and greets can be happily arranged via foster mom Jenn at jenntbo@gmail.comGuacamole’s adoption fee is $500.
