About New Hope Cattle Dogs

We are committed to finding forever homes for our ACD's, therefore, We will do an extensive evaluation to try and get the best "fit" between you and your new dog.  Please fill out an adoption application so we can work on finding you the perfect match. It is important for you to understand that we have strict requirements for placement. We WILL NOT place one of our dogs in a home that is planning on keeping their dog outside more than 25% of the time.  These dogs have all encountered some sort of abuse in their lives, whether it was physical, emotional or just plain neglect.  It is important that they feel like a part of the family and get to be with their "pack" as much as possible.

New Hope Cattle Dogs makes a commitment to all our rescued dogs to watch over them for life. We require that if one of our dogs ever proves unsuitable for ANY reason in your home that they come back to us for placement.

Cattle Dogs are wonderful, intelligent and loyal companions, but they are not for everyone and are not a 'beginner' dog, so please make sure to read and do lots of research before you make a commitment to adopt. If you are unsure where to begin, please e-mail us for more info. Also, please read our brochure on the ACD Personality to determine if this is really the breed for you.
