Beautiful Esme is a ~4 year old Australian Cattle Dog Mix. This sweet girl is so incredibly smart! She enjoys “wowing” you with her skills and would love to bond with her family by learning some new tricks. Esme needs a child free home and though she enjoys interacting with other dogs, tends to get over stimulated and anxious. She would likely adjust well with a slow introduction and play dates before adoption. Esme is also extremely nervous with strangers which requires gradual encounters. This loving girl will shower you with kisses and cuddles once you earn her trust though! She is very loyal and protective of her humans and would benefit from additional training to improve her social skills and confidence. Esme has quite a bit of energy and would love a fenced in yard or lots of long walks or maybe even runs! Please don’t let her behavior in the kennel deter you as her reactivity is completely out of fear.
