Rusty the Australian Cattle Dog American Pit Bull Terrier Mix

Australian Cattle Dog American Pit Bull Terrier Mix

Rusty is an Australian Cattle Dog American Pit Bull Terrier mix. We have had Rusty for a little over a week, rescued from our county shelter where he was surrendered. We were told he is an Australian Cattle Dog mix, which you can see from his red heeler merle. We believe he is also Pit Bull or similar Molosser dog. He is estimated at 9 mo. old. Energetic, athletic, sweet, obedient. Loud noises startle him. He plays for hours on end with our very energetic 8 mo old JRT.

His body is mostly redish brown with some black hairs mixed in particularly on his tail. The white and red merle extends from the left side of his head to his neck and chest and down his right front leg, plus all four paws. Body is long and lean, head is large for body, flopped ears and amber eyes. We did consider catahula leopard dog, but the merle isn’t right.

    Additional information on Rusty: He also has webbed toes (more than either of the two breeds mentioned) and a serious love of water. This was part of the reason for going down the catahoula path, but we think he may have lab / retriever or something similar as part of his mix.

    I have an ACD Pit mix. Looks the same only blue. Best dog we’ve ever had.
