Meet Ozzy – McNab Herding Dog Australian Cattle Dog Mix Dog For Adoption in Seattle WA
There is a $100 adoption/rehoming fee. Supplies and vet records will be included.
Meet Ozzy, an absolutely adorable 6 month old puppy for adoption in Seattle, WA. Ozzy is a very handsome mix of McNab Herding Dog and Australian Cattle Dog (also known as an ACD or Blue Heeler).
Incredibly smart and oh so handsome, Ozzy is fixed and up to date on shots. He has undergone obedience training, and is also crate trained.
Poor Ozzy is like a fish out of water in his current home. With nothing to herd and no job to do, this highly intelligent little man has had to resort to herding people. This means that little kids get gentle elbow nips to point them in the right direction, and guests and visitors to the home are directed towards each other through tiny nips at their heels.
Ozzy doesn’t mean to be rude – it’s just what he was meant to do… herd!
Because of his herding obsession and incredibly strong work ethic, Ozzy would be so much happier in the type of home where he can practice his skills. He’s kind of a “lone wolf” when it comes to other dogs – he can take ’em or leave ’em. He’s too intense for small children, but would be OK with older kids and teenagers.
Ozzy’s ideal home will be with someone who understands how his little mind works and can give him engaging activities like learning tricks. He would make an awesome farm hand! Ozzy would also excel with an owner interested in dog sports such as agility or flyball, a speedy and amazing running companion, or just as a best friend following you around and helping with chores around the home.
At the very least, Ozzy will need a home with large, securely fenced yard. He will need owners who have lots of time to spend with him, and who are active, as he has plenty of energy, athleticism and drive.
He is not suited for someone who works full time and would have to keep him crated all day – he needs plenty of stimulation and activity for his mind and body. He’s also probably not a good fit as a “take me to work” dog, unless your workplace needs a strict canine supervisor! 🙂
If you would like to meet Ozzy the super-dog, please get in touch. He can’t wait to wow you with wiggles and charm his way into your heart and home.

Ozzy gets along with:
Older Children Adults Dogs
Ozzy is astoundingly intelligent and very stubborn. He has a high drive for herding and guarding. He is very silly sometimes and will do ‘naughty’ things just to get our attention, but he is also very focused at times and loves to play fetch, and do his obedience training. He LOVES learning new commands.
Ozzy really doesn’t seek much affection from anyone but my partner and myself. We think that his ideal situation would be just us, no one else. He doesn’t really seem to care for dogs much and can be very shy around them.
He does have a couple of close dog friends who he trusts and plays with, but he’s not into crowds. He really doesn’t love it when strangers pet him and isn’t much of a dog for kids. He has no experience with cats or other household pets.
Food and Diet
Ozzy is currently on Other
Ozzy likes Taste of the Wild puppy chow in Salmon and eats about 2.5 cups of food, half in the morning and half in the evening.
He gets lots of treat throughout the day, as obedience training is an ongoing process throughout our days and not something we only do at certain times.
We have given him a lot of different food/treats, and nothing has caused an allergic reaction or made him sick. He seems very eager to eat just about everything!
Reason For Rehoming
Ozzy needs a lot more leadership and structure than we are able to provide in our home. We were prepared for the physical demands of the dog, but as first time puppy owners are not equipped to walk him through the behaviors that are preventing him from being a reliable family dog.
