Meet Carolina Hearts’ Firestorm Honey Badger, Stormy for short! Stormy is a sassy, happy-go-lucky, ten week old Australian Cattle Dog puppy. She joined the CHAR family after being found on the side of the road in rural South Carolina.
Stormy is a high energy, high drive little girl that is always ready for some fun and play. She loves toys and chew bones, and an occasional sock or flip flop (trash is also a perfectly acceptable alternative, she says). Stormy is smart as a whip and highly food motivated, and should be a dream to train. After a good walk or play session Stormy settles well and is happy for a nap or to entertain herself with a bone or toy. Stormy sleeps all night in her crate like a good little girl, and never makes a peep. She is also doing well with house training, provided she is given frequent potty breaks.
Stormy has met lots of other dogs in her foster home and loves to play with everyone, although some of the older dogs don’t appreciate her exuberance and puppy bites. She tries to be a good girl when they tell her to go away, but she’s still learning, and may be a bit too rough for a very elderly dog or tiny dog. Like a typical puppy with razor sharp teeth, Stormy has left a few marks on her foster mom. For that reason Stormy would not be a good fit for a home with small children (we would prefer children to be at least six years old or older). When needed Stormy responds well to strong verbal correction, but she greatly prefers to be taught what she should do, rather than what she should not.
Stormy’s perfect home would be with a family that knows and understands herding breeds well, and realizes that she will need consistent (daily) mental stimulation, physical exercise, and obedience training to be her best. To help her burn off some energy, she would be best in a home with a male canine buddy. Stormy has not met any cats in her foster home but due to her drive we think it’s best she goes to a cat free home.
Due to her level of energy, Stormy would do best in a home where she is not crated for long periods of time. She would be an excellent sport or working dog candidate as she is fearless, high drive and very biddable.
Stormy is up-to-date on age appropriate vaccinations and will be microchipped.
Stormy is fostered in Lincolnton, NC and her adoption fee is $350.00
