Our Corrina is a fun-loving girl who is always ready to play.  She joined us a few months ago from NYCACC, after she had been brought to the Brooklyn shelter as a city stray.  Corrina is an Australian Blue Heeler Cattledog, who seemed out of place in her surroundings.  It's not easy to own a Herding dog in the city, due to their tenacious high energy and work ethic, but Corrina seems more mild-mannered than most of the Herders we've known. 

Despite the chaotic shelter environment, Corrina seemed to hold her own and avoid trouble. Her behavior evaluations were great, and she has adopted nicely to foster care. She seems more at home in the Connecticut countryside.  Corrina has the stocky Cattledog physique, and her coat is a beautiful brown Merle pattern with a lot of speckled "ticking."  She is clearly a Herder, so she definitely needs an active lifestyle and a job.  Herders are hardwired to work, and if her adopters do not engage her mentally and physically, she will practice her herding skills in the house.  A bored, frustrated Herding dog is sure to make mayhem. 

Exercise and obedience training are the keys to managing the Herding Breeds.  Corrina is a high energy dog, with a outgoing, friendly personality, who greets everyone with great affection. She would make a great running, walking or hiking partner. She's built for speed, but will adjust her pace to suit her handler. Corrina needs at least two brisk daily leash walks, in addition to focused playtime each day.  Adopters can increase the intensity of a walk by outfitting her with a dog backpack, loaded with water and a collapsable bowl.  At each rest and water stop, Corrina will feel like she's got a job and will be quite proud of herself.

Obedience training is essential to meeting the needs of a Herding dog. Corrina already knows most basic obedience commands, and is on the way to earning her Canine Good Citizenship Certification. Adopters should be able to take her the rest of the way with ease.  Structure and obedience work go a long way in providing Corrina the mental and physical challenges that she needs.

Corrina is best suited to an active adult home, with a dog savvy single or couple, who have the time and energy to give her daily exercise.  She is an active girl, who loves to be front and center with her folks rather than relegated to a backyard. Corrina could easily join a multi-dog home, but we think she might chase cats beyond their comfort level. 

Corrina's house manners are improving greatly, and now, she is mostly house trained and crate trained. Adopters should expect the occasional accident as she transitions to a new home. She is in excellent health, and will be spayed by our Vet on 9/13/21. Corrina has received all routine vaccinations and health screenings.
