Are you looking for a laid back, trained dog that wants a person to call her own? Then Freckles is for you. Freckles really bonds strongly with her family. We think her perfect home would be a retired couple or person; someone who has lots of time to spend with her. She also prefers to be the only dog in the household. She may possibly do ok with one other very laid back dog in the house. Freckles gets along just fine with cats.

Freckles is a friendly twelve year old female Australian Cattle Dog; though you would never guess she is eleven. She was surrendered to us when her owner passed away and the extended family did not want her and planned to euthanize her. She was in pretty rough shape when we got her. She came to us with a severe ear infection which had been left untreated, causing a hematoma to develop. She also had two tick borne diseases which she was treated for--lymes and anaplasmosis. All of these conditions have resolved. However, to keep her ears maintained, she does require a maintenance regimen of twice weekly ear flushes.

Freckles is a friendly girl and does well with everyone. She is excellent with children, even small children. Freckles likes to be pet and especially loves to have her belly rubbed. She doesn't play much with toys, but loves going on walks. She is housebroken, but does not usually give clear indications when she needs to go out.

Please email MHS at info@mnhumane.org if you are interested in fostering or adopting Freckles.

Freckles is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, dewormed and microchipped.

Adoption Fee: $150.00 View this pet at Petfinder.com
