Meet Carlos , a New Hope Cattle Dog Available For Adoption


 Meet Carlos


Carlos is listed as a courtesy to the shelter in Merriam, Kansas. Below is his information. If interested in adopting, or needing additional information please contact Glenda Bailey directly at 417-459-0272 or via email - ..... Carlos is a shy but sweet young cattle dog who tends to warm up slowly to new people. He would thrive best in an environment where he can move at his own pace with unfamiliar people. When comfortable he is sweet and solicits attention and play. When Carlos is uncomfortable or triggered, he is prone to typical cattle dog snap warnings but has never bitten someone or made contact. Like most under-socialized 6-month-old puppies he could use some gentle structure, obedience and work on impulse control and mouthiness/height seeking but nothing over the top he simply just needs someone to show him the way. He very much acts like a cattledog – likes to run and can be mouthy during his play (including herding behaviors). No bite history. Did well with an aloof and friendly playmate. He comes in hot with unusual body language at first but was able to coexist eventually. No known history with other species. Neutered, microchipped, negative for heartworms, dewormed, up to date on vaccinations including Rabies, Bordetella, Distemper and is also up to date on preventative (Advantage Multi.) Overall healthy and medically cleared for adoption.
