Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler x Rat Terrier
10 months old - Short coat - Female

Ferrari is a 10 month old miniature Australian Cattle Dog-Rat Terrier mix who weighs 11.6lbs. She's a quiet, mellow girl who is looking for that special home that will help her blossom. She is painfully shy with strangers and needs a confident owner and in an ideal world, a confident canine sibling waiting to meet her!

Ferrari is 100% a different dog when she is with another dog and especially a confident dog. She sparkles, she is friendly and outgoing and she loves to play with the other dog. She bonds fairly quickly with her people but she is not going to be a dog who immediately bonds with strangers. She won't be one that runs up to a stranger and says, "I love you!" Rather she's like the shy kid who will hide behind her mom's legs. But put her with a confident dog and watch her blossom! She needs to be with a family that doesn't allow folks to corner her but rather lets her come to them. She bonds with women much more quickly but the men in the home will have to take more time and energy to win her over.

Ferrari gets along well with other dogs and finds her confidence with them. Ferrari is an option to go to a home with a cat as well. She currently lives with a cat in her foster home.

Ferrari is only an option to go to a home that has had a dog in the last 3 years. If there are children they need to be over the age of 10.

**Not all of our dogs go to each adoption event. We want to make sure if you are interested in a dog that we have the dog at adoptions but that can only happen if you fill out an application ahead of time and are pre-approved. (Generally this must happen prior to the weekend)

**If you are wanting to submit an application within 24 hours of an event, please print off the application and bring with you as well as submitting it. You may still submit it and if time and volunteers permit, we will contact you. Most applications submitted the weekend of adoptions are not responded to until after the adoption weekend.
