Meet Darla

Meet Darla, a gorgeous 7-year-old, 50 lb. Australian Cattle Dog/Border Collie mix ready for her next chapter to begin! This lovely lady has been through a lot in her life…she was given up by her family and then surrendered to a dog trainer who then passed away before ending up at the Danbury Animal Control pound, where she has been for over two years. The past four years have been difficult but she is finally in a foster home getting used to "being a dog" again.

Like most cattle dogs, Darla is an energetic pup who LOVES having a job and will show you all her skills as she herds her balls and toys around the yard, which she will happily play in for hours. She really enjoys spending her time outside running, rolling in the grass, swimming in the pool, and soaking up the sun. Darla is a sweetheart and loyal companion who is always aiming to please her people. She's very affectionate and will lean on you, giving you all the kisses.

She is extremely intelligent, food motivated, and has a lot of training potential. Darla is dog selective and resource guards high value items around pups, however has not shown this same tendency around humans. Based on this, she'd do best as your one and only. Darla’s ideal home would be with adults on a farm or with a large yard so she can run and play. No apartments or condo living for this girl. Cattle dog breed experience is preferred.

Her adoption fee is $350 and she is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm negative. If you are interested in adopting Darla, please complete the application at For questions, email
