Are you looking for a sweet pup to go on beautiful hikes with? If so, then you're in luck because here we have adorable 1 year old male Australian Cattle Dog Mateo looking for his forever home! This precious boy is more on the medium side, weighing in at around 35 pounds; and we don't think he will get much bigger. Mateo was found with both of his eyes in rough shape and us at HSLWR decided to bring him into our facility to get him the help he so needed. We were able to save one eye, however he did need the other removed. Having one eye and being partially blind does not slow this silly pup down! Mateo here is full of personality and is super affectionate, constantly wanting to be by your side. Mateo's remaining eye will need eye meds once a day for life. He is like most Cattle Dogs, as he is full of energy and needs things to keep him busy a lot of the time. Mateo definitely does need some training since he has the usual puppy habits such as jumping and being mouthy. Because of Mateo's energy level, he will need to go home with someone who has experience with herding breeds and with someone who understands that he will need plenty of exercise and mental stimulation. Mateo hasn't been tested with dogs, cats, or kids at this time. If you're looking for a pup that will cuddle and play with you all day long, then handsome Mateo could be the one! His adoption fee is $250.
