About Rata:

Rata is a medium-sized, female australian-cattle-dog, aged 5 years old.


I’m hoping to find a loving furever home for this beautiful darling. (Dark coated dog pictured)
She has been surrendered to us after her owner realized they are unable to give her the love and care she deserves.

Her name is Rata, she is 5years old an Australian cattle dog and Australian shepherd dog mix.
She’s had one litter at 2 and a half years old.
She has been known to not do well with little little dogs such a as Bichons and Maltese.
She’s excellent in recall and was trained to be a kiwi dog for 2 years but then failed the sociability test upon re-testing her.
She’s very cautious of MALES as her previous owner was a bit rough with her.. but she is the most loving dog and has excellent whistle recall too. Literally will stop dead in her tracks for the right whistle.

She knows sit, wait, lie down, no, outside, go toilet, up and hurry up.

A bit about Rata’s personality:

Timid and cautious at first. Very loving and cuddly once she’s gotten used to you. Quite playful once she’s come out of her shell as well. Very energetic and loves being taken for a walk/run. Gets on well with other dogs and people but doesn’t like to be harrassed.
