    Very mellow, friendly dog with lots of love to give.

    Milky Way is a 6 year old Australian Cattle Dog mix who was surrendered to AARCS’ care. She is totally house trained and crate trained and one of the easiest, most gentle foster dogs we’ve had in our home. We have two school aged children and she is wonderful with them and laps up their attention and love. She enjoys multiple short walks a day but also is very content to snooze on her bed for hours at a time. She seems a little stiff in her legs so prefers short walks to major hikes.

    Milky Way had to have all but one of her teeth removed due to decay so she is on a soft food diet (she eats canned food with no problems). She could stand to lose a couple pounds so treats should be strictly limited.

    She has not been tested with cats in the home, she is extraordinarily gentle and patient with kids, and is fine with other dogs she meets on walks (sometimes interested and friendly, sometimes indifferent, and has been known to growl at pesky, annoying whippersnappers who need a lesson in manners!).

    She mainly just wants to be in a forever home where she can hang out with you and show you her life-long devotion, give you lots of kisses, receive belly rubs and head scratches, and dance around with delight when you walk in the door. Milky Way is a pleasure to have in the home and will certainly add joy to the right forever family.
