Training might be a challenge....he's not food oriented at all. But actually he has very little appetite---maybe it's a stress type thing--he's apparently been in two shelters on the way here...he has no GI symptoms and he will see the vet Thursday, so we'll see.

And considering he's a well behaved dog in general and does a decent job on leash, he doesn't seem to know ANYTHING. Sit! Huh? Down! What?
Guess you are not going to sleep until Noon anymore, Mel!

Looks like he could be mixed with an Australian Cattle Dog. Or just be an overgrown ACD, but that's not likely. I've owned an Australian Cattle Dog/Corgi and an Australian Cattle Dog/Border Collie. The ACD/Border Collie looked purebred and I thought she was until we got a DNA Test.
As for the cat, mine did the same thing as well. It just took her time to adjust. Reward the dog for ignoring the cat. Try putting your cat in a carrier and letting the dog and cat sniff eachother, possibly the other way around so the cat doesn't feel cornered and threatened. Reward both for good behavior. Try keeping both away from eachother until the cats understands the dog isn't a threat. Hope that helps

Somewhat of an old thread (from last May)...anyway theservicedobie, an update for you:

Trip (cat) and he (DogDog) occasionally sleep together, though they usually spend their time pushing the other off to claim my lap.

They try to play together, but it doesn't quite work....DogDog shoves a tug-toy in the cat's face (not appreciated); cat rolls over and grabs one of DogDog's hind legs and starts the kicking action (which is not appreciated either).

The other day the dog accidentally stepped on the cat on his way in from outside and the cat chased him around the house whapping at him....but it seems to all be in good fun, more or less.

On line, there's some pictures of a mix breed the breeders are calling a Texas Heeler, a Cattle dog and Australian Shepherd mix (or sometimes Border Collie with Cattle Dog), which look a lot like him. Cattle Dog-ish, but with a rougher slightly longer coat, and a little less stubby...

Texas Heeler from online:


So we've decided he may be an Aussie shepherd/cattle dog mix. He's 60 pounds and about 24" at the shoulder, so he is big for either of those, but......

My local obedience trainer, who shows both rough and smooth collies big time, as well as being into competition herding, says that if I want to get a PAL registration, to call him a Australian Cattle Dog and that there would be absolutely no problem getting him accepted as such.
