Meet Red

Red is a 5 years old cattle dog , do not let his age fool you. He has a lot of energy I mean ALOT. He has some incredible speed and stamina. He is crate and house trained. Therefore he would do great in a household that are big hikers or somebody wanting to try agility. He can jump from the ground into the back of a pick up truck with no hesitation. He loves to jump up on the hay bales in the barn and in the back of some of our trailers. It is like he is looking for treasures. He can entertain himself with balls outside also

He loves car rides, however he gets excited so it is best if he is in a crate or belted into the seat belt. His counter surfing and trash can looting has gotten better. We work on commands like down and sit daily. It is hard for him to think when he has lots of energy to burn.

He has huge anxiety issues like spinning in circles and biting at his tail. Which means he gets snappy when he is stressed and needs his human to change things up for him. This person needs to be strong minded and very regimented in how you handle him. I have had good luck defusing him. At the end of the day, he likes to crawl up next to you on a chair or bed and snuggle. He will chase small dogs and cats, and vehicles given the chance. He shares a home with a senior ACD and Female ACD, however he would be best to be an only dog. Has not chased any live stock on the farm, just wildlife

He would do great with an active couple. Maybe a retired Military Family. He runs very fast as I have clocked him on the farm at about 15 miles per hour. His call back is better but he is not street smart so should be on leash in a traffic situation. So Bike riding and skateboarding he would love. Once he is tired he wants to lay in your lap and he is done for the day


He is up to date on Vax & etc.

You will have to be able to meet him before adopting him to make sure it is a good match. We are in south central MD (Manchester MD) roxy@sweetrockstables.com
