Rescue Me ID: 17-01-06-00526Edison (male)

Australian Cattle Dog    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This senior was picked up as a stray... even animal services in Ventura can't understand this one. The subject of the email that notified me of Edison's dilemma, said he was 'AMAZING', and I see why. Edison is absolutely adorable. The photo by the Christmas tree, he was actually surrounded by other dogs at an adoption event. Not phased one bit. I know this guy... not personally, I know who he is. He's smart, mature, knows what is ok and what isn't. He's good with all other animals. He's a Heeler! From Ventura County Animals services: 'He's incredibly smart, knows many commands -- including the high-five, as you can see. To meet this guy is ... (Read More)to fall in love!!!!' Edison is neutered, current on vaccinations and micro-chipped. He's 59 lb, but we'll be working on reducing that figure. Good food (less of it) and some exercise! He loves his pack walks and unbelievably, he swims in the cold creek! Great off or on leash and can get in and out of the van on his own. He sleeps outside or in, and knows how to use the dog door. But I think he learned that here. Edison tolerates the goofy youngsters but, at his age, he'd rather not if he doesn't have to. Likewise, he'd be better with older children. If you're looking for some cool senior company, think about Edison. I want 2017 to be a fantastic year for this good ol' boy!

Rescue Me ID: 16-12-29-00316Duke (male)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered 

    About 18 mos. McNab maybe Kelpie mix. He was found covered in mud! Totally housebroken. Didn't figure out the dog door for a week. Just held it till someone let him out. Had plenty of opportunity to chew slippers and belts, but perfect and trustworthy in my home. No herding tendencies. Not mouthy, Like many herders, doesn't 'hold your hand'. Great with the pack integration. Here's what know about Duke: Readers digest version: Needs a savvy owner. Not socialized properly as a youngster, doesn't really understand appropriate behavior. A little insecure with new dogs. Stiffens and moves slowly, checking out new dogs. That goes away with ... (Read More)verbal correction from the pack leader. Great on pack walks. Comes to the whistle! Also walks well on leash. Gets along with cats. Great in the house. Here's the in depth explanation of Duke: If you're looking at Duke, you chose an interesting dog. Not a no brainer. Been working with him. He came here pretty much thinking he can do what he wants. He did already have great house manners. Not knowing how to use a dog door (unbeknownst to me) I left him in the house for probably 14 hours at least. But I already knew Duke was a saint in the house. What I did not realize, he didn't follow my dogs go in or out. Came home to Duke with legs crossed! No accidents or destruction. Let him out and he peed for 5 minutes. Taught him to use the dog door! So,One hurdle jumped. He can be left in and trusted, and now uses a dog door if you had one. Next; Great on leash, no reactivity to urban situations, dogs on leash, strollers , bikes, skateboards, solid. Great off leash (always in on motorized vehicle areas, please). Another hurdle cleared. What I see, is improper socialization, plus alpha male. He's fine with other alpha males in open environments, off leash or my yard, even in the van. But, at times, and I can see it before it happens, he meets another dog like himself, slow walk, stiffening of the body, tail's up, ears high as can be, trying to be bigger than he is, neck over the neck of the offender, and if you don't stop it verbally (which you can) he will give as good as he gets. I carry a stun baton, and the sound of it breaks up unexpected crap, I haven't had a problem but anyone that is interested in Duke, needs to be aware and able to make that decision. We generally don't kennel the dogs, they have to get along in one large yard. I had been muzzling Duke while in the general population, when isolated, take the muzzle off. He's realized the difference, the aim, and has changed his behavior. But his owner needs to know this and be prepared. He is not a killer, but he can fight if he's with a dysfunctionally socialized dog. Off leash, meeting new dogs, he's quite laid back and polite. I do meet other dogs on the acreage we hike, and he actually runs to me afraid of the new dogs, so I know this is just bravado or insecurity when he fronts with new pack members. My pack continually revolves. Newcomers every week if not daily. Submissive or smaller males, or females, he is very nice. He's also been proven trustworthy around cats... Duke is respectful with humans, but there's a limit. You have to be fair. This is not a dog to be bullied. I'm careful with new dogs, taking them by the collar, I leash them up until I know them. I can muzzle Duke, with zero resistance. And something I do with dogs that don't get get along, is ground the dog that starts it. Meaning put them on their side like another dog would do. In grounding Duke, I made sure to have him muzzled first! I learned to do that when he growled at me the first time I went to put him on his side. This is to establish the dominant figure. They see me as another dog, and I have to be the biggest baddest dog at all times. Duke tried to challenge that. But as I said, I had a muzzle on him, so I listened to, and watched his protest, until he relaxed, and then let him up, only when I said it was alright for him to get up. Sounds nuts if you're not familiar with dog behavior. But it's working and he's gotten better every day. He won't be adopted to anyone who isn't dog savvy enough to handle him. In his own home with a family or an owner, he's going to do great. He's learning basic do's and don'ts here. And I have had way worse dogs go on to great lives. This is simply full disclosure about a dog, that didn't get this early learning stuff like he should have. Now, if you'd like to talk further about this intelligent, handsome, and somewhat challenging guy, I'm happy to. This is all I can tell you about Duke. His saving grace, I must say, is his willingness to stick with me in the open, and his great manners indoors and out. he's not a barker, digger, not anxious, can be left alone, and all these things balance out the issues I have had to work with him on.

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Mae is little, kind of a heeler GS mix, but totally acts like a herder. The SEAACA facility in Downey had her age at 4. The staff at SEAACA really liked her and kept her alive longer then normal for them, but her time was literally up when I got her out. She's a very sweet girl, easygoing, is fine on the leash. She's separated from the other dogs right now, to see if she has kennel cough, but she was great with dogs at the shelter, completely non-reactive, in a highly stressful environment! Mae is being fostered, in Huntington Beach. Photos updated: ...

Australian Kelpie    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed 

    She's a 6 yr old Kelpie... former momma for sure. But as of a day ago, she is never having pups again! Belle came from Corona Animal Control. She'd been there a while, and like most sensitive herders, she had had enough of the confinement and the shelter was not going to keep her there much longer. So thanks to some very concerned volunteers, Belle was represented to me, arrangements were made, and here she is! Introductions were made quickly with the pack. Uneventful, just like we aim for. Belle is chilling in a huge yard with lots of straw filled dog-loo's and enclosures to be protected from this California cold! She really is great ... (Read More)with the pack... even though she stole a cow hoof from Brick, Brick just let her do it. Gotta love well balanced dogs... Belle is very healthy, available and would make for some really nice even company! She could lose a couple pounds, but... so could I...

Rescue Me ID: 16-11-28-00332Coco (female)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Coco's siblings were all adopted through CCHD Rescue, Molly, Margaret, Jimmy and Jake. Just under 4 years old, Coco is 1/2 Aussie 1/2 Border Collie. Please read what Lisa, caregiver to the humans that produced these dogs, and advocate for Coco and her siblings wrote about her: Her whelp date January 2013. - female - red (brown) and white. She is very petite at approximately 25 lbs. This little dog was not a favorite of the elderly couple who bred these dogs. She was the runt of the litter and said to not listen or since she was a pup. I feel she is vastly misunderstood. She is very intelligent, in my opinion, and small which is a ... (Read More)problem because she seems to figure out how to squeeze out or crawl through every enclosure. She had been penned by herself far from others with little socialization. She has a growl like she is feral. It is not a typical dog growl. However, she has never tried to be aggressive with me. When I arrived I built a 16' x 52' pen and put Coco, two other females of approximate age and my neutered 10 month old male, Oliver. She did very well and because Oliver knows no strangers, wants only to play with everyone, he and Coco hit it off and have played for hours. Coco and Oliver love to wrestle and play in the small pool of water. They will play tag and tug-o-war. They are very with their front legs. When she first met me she wrapped her front legs around one of my upper thighs and she had to be peeled off. Coco still gets out of the enclosure and has to be moved to an enclosure she can't escape. I tried to put her in with Margaret & Molly and she stayed in a corner and growled if the others tried to come near. They cowered in one corner and she another divided by 12 feet of open ground. Then I moved her to a 6' x 16' enclosure that shared a side with Margaret & Molly. Once they had about a week of acquaintance time through the fence, I moved all three into the 16' x 52' pen with the other three to play. Coco wanted to play with Molly, but Molly cowered and tried to hide from the others. Coco didn't want to play with Margaret. On another occasion when I entered the enclosure to refresh the pool water, Coco grabbed my ankle with her teeth, but did not bite me or leave a mark. More like her natural herding instinct. Another time she jumped up and grabbed the flabby part of my upper arm and pinched it with her teeth. Again I don't believe that she was being aggressive but this is how she plays with Oliver. They grab each other and wrestle and maul each other. If I reach out to her with my hand, she licks and nips with her teeth, in more of a happy playful manner. She barks at cats and chickens, but sometimes I think she does it almost for 'master approval'. Because when I observe her through the window, she lets cats come in to her enclosure and lay next to her. If Molly and Margaret barked. There is a cat in your cage! Coco would chase it out. I observed Coco having a mild seizure 8/18/2016. Was outside feeding the cats and dogs and observed Coco, unable to stand with out losing her balance. She looked drunk and scared. I was able to console her, got her to relax and not try walking around. It passed. She had regular bowel movements and ate her dinner within minutes of the seizure passing. The elderly couple could not confirm if she had it happen before. This could be an isolated incident brought on by something unknown... If my situation was different I would adopt her myself. I think she just needs love. Update: I have been working with her and she walks well on a leash and is excited whenever she sees me. I can get her to come to me and I have been trying to work with and but it is harder for her to understand. She has growled with me when I have had to pick her up. She also growls when she is having to be re-introduced to the pack after training sessions.' Coco is a gorgeous dog, that had very little chance at life. No socialization until Lisa came on the scene. She now has a chance. Even a completely feral dog, can become the best companion. I can give 50 examples from my own rescue alone. Seizures can happen for a myriad of reasons, Sometimes it's an isolated instance. It's full disclosure here, she was observed having one. But it was months ago and none observed before or since. Coco deserves a chance.

Rescue Me ID: 16-11-14-00476Nina (female)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Nina is a 7 year old cattle dog mix who is in foster care. She is a wonderful dog but her foster, and primary caregiver, a 73 year old gentleman who is quite active. And caring for her the past few months, can no longer. Prior to this time (6 years ago), Nina was taken in when it was discovered she'd been living in a cage at her veterinarian's office for a year. Nina began getting daily walks and continued to live at the vet hospital. After 6 months, a home was found for Nina. Recently, following the July 4th holiday, Nina's saviors found she'd been taken to the Carson Shelter. Her owners had divorced and Nina was traumatized and ... (Read More)began escaping from her new residence. They no longer wanted her. The original person who got her out of that cage at the vets is now who is 83 years old, bailed her out again and after a few months found the foster home she is in now. It was hoped this would be a forever home, but Nina's foster informed us recently that Nov 15th is the last day she can remain with them. Nina will not be put back in a cage! Spent too much of her life this way. She is a well-trained, wonderful dog! She loves life! She loves walks, hikes, car rides, or just being at home with her family. Nina loves children so she would be great with a family, or just one person. She is a young 7-8 year old -- Energetic & happy! She will a best friend for someone.

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-29-00035Ted (male)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Say 'hi' to Ted... quietly, he nervous! Ted has been here a while now, but oh, the progress! Looking normal much of the time now. Follows you everywhere off leash. Routine oriented. He's blowing me away. Longest I have ever had a foster, but the things he's taught me are invaluable! He's about 2, Queensland / Catahoula combo. Beautiful guy, one blue eye. Ted came here with his sister/mother, who knows, Tessa from the small Orange Cove Shelter, in July 2014. Sometimes I wish I knew a dog's story. How could they be SO shut down?! Ted was one of those dogs. He's fearful and under socialized. Been working with him, and experience has proven ... (Read More)that they are all reachable. The kind of progress I'm grateful for, he now instigates play with dogs, loves sleeping on a dog bed inside and knows how to navigate the dog door, and is housebroken. He's not terrified of me anymore! Eats grass on walks... walks on a leash. I can pet him... I'm tellin' ya, it's the little things that are enormous with some of these guys! Now when we walk, Ted is so close he bumps into the back of my legs, and I feel his breath on the back of my hand... Ted just needs a special adopter, one who might understand Ted is special. He could just be left alone to exist, but I would love to see him with someone that would touch him every day, take him on walks, expose him to things. This is when I've seen the most improvements. Exposure to everything! Immersion. Was a huge deal to even force him to sleep in a dog bed next to me! Once he did for a few days, he expected it! Routine is key! Dogs are incredible, you can reach them through routine. Still working and he has all the time he needs...
