Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Pointer / Mixed (short coat)
Meet Captain! Captain has two motivations in life: squeak all the squeaky things and snuggle!! He’s a 2ish-year-old Australian cattle dog with a lot of energy. The more active his forever family is the better! Cap's forever family would ideally have a forever backyard so he can run and play and chase squirrels. Because of his size and his energy, small dogs seem more like squeaky toys than play friends. Cap is sociable on walks but not overly eager to meet and greet other dogs. He’s crate trained and likes sleeping with his special blanket. Captain is an incredibly sweet dog with endless love, energy, and snuggles to give. All he asks in return is love and squeaky toys!
Captain is the happiest boy! He knew he was safe when we put that leash around his neck at the kennel. He trotted out of that building, head held high stopping by every volunteer so they could give him one last pet. See, Captain was a shelter favorite and everyone loved him. His spots tell us he has some australian cattle dog mix in him and his smile says he'll make some lucky family so happy for many years!
Captain is doing great in his foster home and does great with his 2 smaller canine siblings! He likes to play, but also likes to lounge around watching his favorite Houston sports teams! We would love to get Captain into a forever home!
