Awesome Augie is an intelligent, active and deeply affectionate 2 year old, 40 lb Australian Cattle Dog mix. He is eager to please, adores people and has the classic smarts and high trainability of this great herding breed. When Augie sees you come in the door, he vibrates with joy and looks for guidance on what to do next.
Our trainer feels this clever boy could be a great agility or rally dog. He likes walks and hikes, but most of all he likes to use his brain to learn new things. Because of his herding dog heritage, he would do best in a home without children.
He is no couch potato, but is a major snuggler. After he is tuckered out, you will find him in a puppy-style splooting pose (lying on his belly with his back legs stretched out behind him and his front legs reaching forward, looking like SuperDog flying through the air!)
Augie is house and crate trained, walks well on leash and loves to jump in the car to go on adventures.
