Australian Shepherd x Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler
3 years old - Short coat - Female

Good with dogs
Good with kids

Melanie is a 3 year old Aussie mix. She weighs about 60lbs. She was relinquished to our rescue when her family was unable to continue to care for her. She is an excellent option for a home that just wants one dog. She loves being the center of attention. She will roll over on her back and belly up for rubs. If there are other dogs in the home, they will need to be confident but submissive. She likes to be in charge and so a dominant dog will create an unbalance.

Melanie is super food motivated. She is highly trainable. She wants to please and to have food as a reward, darn, she'll do just about anything! Melanie is super loving with her humans and she is laser focused on them and what they want!

Melanie is an option for a home that has had a dog in the last 3 years. If there are kids in the home they need to be over the age of 8.

**Not all of our dogs go to each adoption event. We want to make sure if you are interested in a dog that we have the dog at adoptions but that can only happen if you fill out an application ahead of time and are pre-approved. (Generally this must happen prior to the weekend)

**If you are wanting to submit an application within 24 hours of an event, please print off the application and bring with you as well as submitting it. You may still submit it and if time and volunteers permit, we will contact you. Most applications submitted the weekend of adoptions are not responded to until after the adoption weekend.
