Meet Bourbon

Hello! My name is Bourbon. I’m a 5 year old red heeler and just as handsome as it gets! I was rescued by ACDRA and am now looking for my furever home. A little bit about myself… foster mom says I am ALL ACD ! That means I’m a “drivey” working-type boy who needs a job. I thrive best with a leader who can be firm and consistent because, being a typical ACD, I can be a bit hard-headed at times. I really need you to be in charge or it makes me anxious. I want to please though, and once I trust you and have your guidance and direction, I am ALL your’s….smart as a whip, food-motivated and very trainable. Mom says I’m medium energy and have an “off “ button. I love going on hikes, swimming, playing fetch, learning new tricks and could easily become a sports dog. The sky’s the limit with my potential!

My particulars: I’m job-focused, so I’m not keen on play dates and would really prefer to be an only dog. I am aloof when first meeting people, so, give me time to warm up and then I’ll come to you for treats and pets. Children make me nervous. My foster mom says I need to find a home with an ACD-savvy owner who understands and knows my breed. I thrive on structure but like to also find time to relax. In a perfect world, I’d be living in a quiet farm setting or on a few acres with just my person while doing all the fun things we love together. A dog can dream, right? I am UTD on all vetting. If you think you might be my furever person, please contact:
