All in the Family


Australian Shepherd / Labrador Retriever

We got Cleo from a rescue group in our area. Her and her siblings were being sold outside of a Walmart and one of the rescuers bought them all to keep them out of the wrong hands. They were told that her mother was an aussie/lab mix and that her father was a mastiff. I don't see any mastiff in her, and neither does her vet. Her brothers looked like mastiffs, but the vet said it is probable that there were more than one dad to the litter. So, I honesty have no idea what she is a mix of, I think she looks a little like a Jack Russell. Her ears are starting to stand up more every day. She has a half tail, I am assuming she was born that way. I think her tail and her ears give her quite the unique look! We got Cleo when she was 10 weeks and she is 16 weeks now. She currently weighs 17 pounds and the vet think she will be around 35 pounds full grown. She has been attending puppy obedience classes and will graduate tomorrow. I just can't believe how smart she is. She picks up on all of our new training commands in a matter of minutes. If I don't keep her busy with training, she finds her own ways to keep busy, which include climbing (onto our kitchen table), digging (under our fence), or just finding pretty much any trouble she can! She is great with my children, but still thinks our cat is a toy that she needs to chase around the house and bark at! She loves playing with her big brother Gideon our 7 year old Rottweiler. He is very patient with her, and even a little protective of her when he thinks other dogs might be getting too rough. I am thinking of training her in agility, or possibly frisbee. She can jump several feet straight in the air to try to reach her treats off the counter, so I think she would be an excellent frisbee dog. Either way, I am so happy that we have made her a part of our family and look forward to watching her grow and change over the years to come!
