A Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler named May has been adopted at Best Friends Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah...



Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler (medium coat)
Primary Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler
Age: Young
Color: White
Sex: Female


May is so pretty to look at, and she has a delightful personality to match. She's definitely the kind of dog who will keep you on your toes, but as long as she has an outlet for her seemingly endless energy, she's as happy as can be. This high-energy girl was born in 2016 and needs an active home. She loves to train and run around, but then she can calm down with a buddy on the couch. Although May has done well with all dogs she's met at the Sanctuary, she is reactive toward them when she is on a leash. Her caregivers have started doing on-leash training to help her overcome this challenge. May can't live with cats, since she has shown aggression toward them in the past. She came to the Sanctuary from a Best Friends No More Homeless Pets Network partner shelter and is ready for some fun in a home of her own.
