Rescue Me ID: 14-08-28-00386Maple (female)

Australian Cattle Dog    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Maple is a great companion. She is 4 years old and very active. She would be best off with someone that is very active, but would LOVE if she could go everywhere with you. She LOVES to play fetch and is very fast! She would be best with only adults or children that are older and can give commands. She loves road trips, hiking, long walks, and runs. She has been around cat's and older kittens and does fine but will try and give them a chase. She has been around enclosed chickens and does not try and break in to get them. She will alert you to strangers coming up the drive, or an unknown animal with a growl or bark, but has never ... (Read More)attacked and doesn't bark much otherwise. She is a healer so she can be 'mouthy' and that is why I recommend no small children. She hasn't done great with other dogs and is definitely a 'people' pet and will want to follow you everywhere. She has never run off and unless she is in a crowded area or a busy street I tend to leave her off leash with no problems, but she can stand a leash too, but has pulled when she sees another dog. She responds to basic commands. Maple would be best with someone or a couple/family that is done having kids, I would hate for her to not get the attention she deserves. My husband is not a dog person and with a recent job that has me working long hours I feel very bad that she isn't getting the love and attention that she needs and wants. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-08-10-00414Milo (male)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Adult

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

    My name is Courtney and about two months ago my husband and I adopted a mix breed dog from Animal Control. Unfortunately we have recently had some issues that threaten the safety of our other pets. Before the adoption, we had a small Yorkie/Pom mix and a larger German Shepherd both who get along fine. We've decided to adopt so our bigger dog would have a buddy and running partner, and also because we are dog lovers and wanted to make a difference in a dog's life. He's seven years old and has had a sad life of being tossed around from owner to owner and in and out of the pound since he was two months old. His past has been reflective in his ... (Read More)behavior and he has destructive tendencies and separation anxieties, both of which have been limited since we started crating him whenever we left home. However, an issue has arose that we are not capable of dealing with. Our new adopted dog and our smaller dog have gotten along fine for the past two months, but out of no where he attacked our smaller dog and would not let go of him and started shaking him around. Thankfully my husband's father was around to stop the attack, but it was unprovoked and left us bewildered and scared. We are not sure where his behavior came from as he gets along fine with our other dog and is incredibly sweet and loving. He would be better off in a house without smaller pets. We are in disparate need of finding him a new home and it would break our hearts to take him back to Animal Control. Please help us. He really is the sweetest, most loving dog whose has a rough life and deserves a happy future with people who love him. It breaks our heart that we can't be that family for him, but we need to take into consideration the safety of our other dog. Please let me know if you are able to find him a foster home or a forever home. Thank you, Courtney (907) 317-1940 (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Alaska
    Dogs can make good pets in Alaska if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.

    Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!

lnteresting Dog Trivia Low-Cost Alaska Spay & Neuter Clinics
    All dogs, even cute little lap dogs, are ultimately descended from domesticated wolves. There are hundreds of dog breeds with extremely varied characteristics and sizes, from the tiniest teacup Chihuahua to the hugest Mastiff, but all of these breeds make up just one species Canis lupus familiaris and can theoretically breed with one another (although there can be practical and health related constraints.) The dog was the earliest domesticated animal. Dogs are red-green colorblind.
