Gracie's Mommy

Puppy: Gracie the Australian Cattle Pug

Website:

Profile: My gorgeous, albeit tail-less, new puppy found me. She's so smart! She mastered the leash on ONE walk, and knows she is supposed to go potty outside, but sometimes doesn't make it past the puppy pad. I wish I knew what 'breeds' she consists of so that I can be better prepared for her future size and behaviors/traits! It wouldn't matter much in the long run, I guess, because she is part of my family now, regardless. If anyone can tell from puppy pictures (no idea of her age, either) what she might be, feel free to let me know! UPDATE: It is now December, and Gracie is somewhere around 7 months of age. I am now starting to think she resembles some sort of Basenji Shepherd mix. It is too bad someone cut her tail off...it would have given me some more of an idea. UPDATE: Gracie's DNA test came back on 2/8/10...She is an Australian Cattle Dog! Not at all what I expected, but now that I have done some reading on the breed...it's DEFINITELY her! She still has some bizarre behaviors, though. She still yodels, and "talks". Sometimes she acts more like a cat than a dog, but at least now I know what to expect in years to come. Another great thing about knowing what kind of dog she is, is that I now have the ability to train and care for her based on her breed's specific needs. This is an awesome help! I also now know why she requires so much exercise! ;) Oh, and as far as her age goes, the Vet decided that her birthday should be the month of May or early June! :)

Gracie the Australian Cattle Pug

Gracie got her name because she is NOT graceful at all! Her back end doesn't seem to know what her front end is doing most of the time! She trips a lot. On the flip-side, she is incredibly smart. I had Gracie's DNA tested, and now know that she is exactly 75% Australian Cattle Dog, and 25% Pug. I can definitely see both in her at different times. She is my velcro dog...she LOVES to snuggle! I just love her to death. I'm so glad she found me!
