Meet Darla

Meet Darla, a gorgeous 6-year-old, 45 lb. Australian Cattle Dog 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.

Like most cattle dogs, Darla is a high energy 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, and soaking up the sun. She is also taking full advantage of the kiddie pool this summer. Darla is a sweetheart who is always aiming to please her people and is a very loyal companion.

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. Her history with cats or children is unknown but she'd probably do best without. She will definitely need continued training to become the best pup she can be. Darla’s ideal home would be one on a farm or with a large yard so she can run and play. No apartments or condo living for this girl. We would also prefer adopters to have cattle dog breed experience.

Her adoption fee is $350 and she is spayed and will be vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm tested. Meet & greets will take place at the Danbury Animal Control pound. If you are interested in adopting Darla, please complete the application at For questions, email
