From Dusty: Feliciano is an American Pit Bull Terrier Australian Cattle Dog mix. Feliciano is the best dog ever! I adopted her about 6 months ago at a rescue center in Colorado. At the time her name was Big Mama and she had given birth to a litter of pups. We saw her while at the rescue center looking at another dog. I fell in love with her at first pet. She was so sweet and calm.
Feli was rescued as a wild dog in New Mexico covered in fleas and dirt. Now she is a happy, healthy dog. Super hyper but loving, she is learning to better get along with people. We take long hikes together and play everyday. Sometimes she nips at my heels to “herd”.
From Nia: Montana is a German Shepherd, Beagle, American Pit Bull Terrier mix. Super smart, listens well, is great with children. People worry about him being Pitt but he is a total teddy bear lapdog. He is about 50 pounds, boxy pitt head, very beagle in the way he stands and he has white beagle marking in his fur. Has a very german shepherd coloring, a beagle personality, but has definite Pitt features. He likes to take a walk or two a day, but is mostly content to curl up next to whoever is home, and try to get pet.
He’s a rescue, so we don’t know what happened in his before life, he has a few scars, and we suspect he was homeless. Still, he is quick to take to children, loves cuddles, being with the family, playing fetch, and car rides. Does give into his beagle instinct to chase at times, but still does good with the cats, and other dogs. He will growl, but never tries to bite, and will stop and come when called. Super good dog for my depression and anxiety problems, he is great a comforting and cheering me up.
From Nicholas: We believe Mazie is an American Bulldog Great Pyrenees mix. Mazie is a ball of joy she loves to play at the park with other dogs, she’s great with kids and other people. Although she is jumpy sometimes we are working on that. She is 9 months old and 55 lbs.
She does the craziest things with her ears so many different positions. We rescued her January 14 not sure on exact breeds as they only had the mother who was American bulldog I think they guessed in the father.
From Destinie: Mia is probably the fiestiest puppy I’ve ever met. We got her from a woman who had a very talkative Chihuahua so Mia did have a growling and barking problem when she was very young. We have broken that & now she is so sweet!
She is 4 months & teething, she nips at everyone & chews everything. She loves playing with her older brother Koda who is 10 months. She does play fetch, she knows how to sit. Potty training was fairly easy & she’s almost housebroken.
From Destinie: Koda is a Red Doberman Pinscher Alaskan Malamute mix. He’s the most loyal dog, he always has tons of energy not matter what, he eats everything and anything, he was very easy to train. He knows how to sit, stay, lay down, shake, and jump. Potty training was a little hard at first but he got the hang of it.
He tears everything up, he literally tears his toys into pieces the first day he gets them & eats them. He loves to Plays fetch 24/7. He is definitely what you call a gentle giant. He’s so loving.
From Sunniva: I have absolutely NO idea what breed Abbe is. He Loves to cuddle, He likes to play with my cats,
every time he hears the ice cream truck or an ambulance, police car or any kind of siren he starts to howl…
I got him as a rescue dog, and is now allowed to be the dog he is, i also have a female chihuahua mix, and they work great together.
The picture shows him before and after trimming, his fur was a mess when I got him, so I had to trim it, he seems to like it though…
From Aylin: Coco Bean is a Border Collie Miniature Pinscher mix. She has beautiful brown eyes, and has the coat pattern of a rottweiler. She loves to run and is very fast at it, very sweet and protective of us towards other dogs and some people. She gets along with everybody and just wants to be petted and hugged. She doesn’t like to be alone or chained up for t0o long.
She has big pointed ears like her mom and also a slender body but has strong legs from all her running. Very much a barker like her mother but very submissive towards me. She use to destroy everything she got her teeth into and loved to dig holes but we trained her not to. She loves her toys, loves to play tug a war and run around and be chased by my American Pit Bull Terrier. She doesn’t really like other females is what I’ve noticed. She’s been a great mom in the past with her puppies and loves to explore and play with them.
Shes a great dog, very beautiful and easy to fall in love with.
She’s full of energy and and very, very sweet. She was very timid when she first came to us. I don’t even think she knew how to play. Now we cannot get her to stop she is a cutest little thing not quite sure what she’s mixed with but I think she has Pembroke Welsh Corgi in her.
From Curt: We saved Kix from a kill shelter. She was 5 months old and we were the first ones into Petco when the doors opened. We scooped her up and declared we want her. She was shy and a little nervous and didn’t want the other puppies to bother her. We brought her home, and she instantly took to her surroundings. She was so happy to be free and run around the back yard.
She loves to play and wants to chase raccoons and deer in the woods, but we won’t let her because of the ticks. She’s a very happy dog and we are very happy to have her. There is never a dull moment when she is around. She’s the best!
From Mark: Rusty was described by the shelter as a “Red Merle Cattle Dog Mix” but we see little Australian Cattle Dog resemblance. He is 8-9 months old and 40lb, very lean, terrier ears, very active but not frenetic. He loves water. You see pit bull when you look him square in the face, but his profiles and body shape don’t seem typical for pit bull.
Is an amazing good influence on our Jack Russell – wears him out – plays puppy rough but both dogs enjoy it. She is very athletic. Rusty wants human approval (Buddy the Jack Russell couldn’t care less what we think – but he cares what Rusty thinks – looks up to him). A real sweetheart of a dog who has brought a lot of balance to our family dynamic (he absorbs a lot of the JRT crazy for us).
From Brandy: This is my Bailey, a Border Collie/Australian Cattle Dog that I have had for the years. Bailey is my best friend. She is already by my side, even when I’m in the shower, she lays on the mat in the bathroom and waits for me. She sleeps next to me every night and is always on guard when she hears something.
She is agile, fast and intelligent. She plays Frisbee, fetch, climbs trees, rock climbs and goes hiking with me. She is the best dog I have ever had and my partner in crime.
From Ms. Brown: Ry-Lee was a Rottweiler Border Collie mix. She loved unconditionally and was a sweet dog, but sneaky. Ry-Lee was really smart. She couldn’t wait until you walked away from your plate of food because it was her’s.
We loved our border collie mix and she was beautiful. I would like another one. She got along with other dogs, but loved people more. She didn’t like vet’s. Lol! She stole our hearts and we are forever grateful that she let us love her.
Border Colliers and Rottweiler breeds are great dog’s and extremely loyal.
From Jerel: My dog Princess is amazing. I’m not sure what she is exactly. When we bought her we were told she was a tea cup chihuahua. Obviously she isn’t. Our vet thinks she is a terrier mix. She this because of her energy. It’s through the roof. One might even say she has ADHD.
I believe she is mixed with German Shephard and Rat Terrier. She is only 15lbs. I’ll call her my teacup Shephard. She’s just over a year old.
From Anders: Me and my cousin are neighbours, she has a precious female tiger striped boxer called Cody. When she went on trip to Europe she asked me to take care of her home for half a year. Thing we’re going smooth until the last month, all because of my dog, Pelu, a male smooth coat Dachshund, wanted to go to the house, and I wasn’t so happy to take him there because he was always attacked by Cody(he tried to mount her even if she wasn’t in her days). So one weekend I went out leaving my sister in charge. And that’s how it all happened. We were a little bit concerned about how they’re going to be, more boxer-like, more dachshund, but at the end everyone ended to be mildly more balanced to their father’s side. A little bit more heavier though, and with their mother’s coat and easy going personality. We offered to some friends and everyone were delighted, specially because they all inherited the mother’s behavior (my dog is not so friendly with any of my friends).
Altruline has six years now, living with his father of 13 years, and my other dog, a cute two years old black lab. He is such a perfect hybrid, that why we kept him. He resembles the both breeds best qualities almost equally, except that he is a certified digger, and he is the only one who can’t swim! I think because of his tiny legs and being too heavy(52 lbs.), and long, of course.
He’s is everything to us, I’ve never seen any dog so playful and lovely and harmless like an eternal pup, and also loyal like a Dachshund, his heart is not for everyone.
I’m glad he came to our lives from a careless act.
From Marsha: We got Frazier when he was one. He was a rescue dog from Tennessee and brought up and fostered in Wisconsin. He’s the happiest dog I have ever had. He’s extremely smart but not very obedient, very athletic and loves to play. He’s a great guard dog – very quiet and doesn’t make a sound when neighbor’s come home(I live in a condo) but will bark and growl if there’s a stranger in the parking lot.
He’s 86 pounds and very leggy. Loves to cuddle and will sit in your lap if you let him. He’s a very profuse shedder. He has the markings of a Boxer and the proportions of an Anatolian. Unfortunately because he’s a rescue, we don’t have any history on him. We do know he was at a shelter and they kept moving him back in line for euthanization because he was such a nice guy.
