Arrival Story: Bonnie and her brother were dumped in an elderly man's yard. He tried to keep them but adolecent cattle dogs were too much for him. They were picked up by animal control and then transfered to a shelter in Georgia. A plea went out on the Australian cattle dog forum that I am on to rescue these guys, as they would be gassed within days. I agreed to foster one and a rescue in MN made the arrangements. Bonnie was transported to me on Halloween day. I took her straight to the vet clinic I work for and gave her a bath. Within minutes it was apparent to me that Bonnie was deaf.
Bio: Bonnie is very smart and driven. When she came to me she was a mess. She stole food from the counter, she bounced off the walls, she chased the cat. Basically, she was an adolecent cattle dog with no formal training. Since then she has learned some manners and hand signals. She now know sit and down and that she must sit before going outside or in. She is a loving dog and is very treat motivated. Bonnie would be a great agility dog. She is very fast and has a high vertical jump.
Update: Bonnie was adopted and is going to live in Alaska!!!
