Adoptable Dog of the Week - Clef

Want a smart cookie to solve puzzles with? Meet this adorable clever canine! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Clef, an almost 4 years old brindle Cattle Dog mix from Austin, Texas. He is neutered, up to date on his vaccines, microchipped, housetrained, and crate trained. Clef is a friendly fella but would do best as an only pet in an adult-only household because of his size and high prey drive.

Clef’s Tale 

Fun-loving, intelligent, and eager to learn new things, Clef would be the ideal companion for an enthusiastic owner that would like to have a clever pupil by their side. He is already house trained, crate trained, and knows to sit, lie down, stay, go to his crate, get the ball, when it's time to 'play' and when it's time for 'din din’ – he could learn even more commands and tricks with a dedicated owner since he’s not only a smart cookie but also very treat motivated as well. In addition to having an active mind, Clef is also full of energy when it comes to exercise – he could play fetch or tug for hours then cool off with a splash in the pool. A perfect companion for an active owner!

While Clef is a loving dog, he does have a high prey drive, so there shouldn’t be any small animals such as cats, small dogs, or bunnies in his new home. He might do just fine with a dog of his size but it’s best to inquire his rescuers more about this before a meet and greet. Ideally, though, Clef would be the only pet in an adult-only home where he could play to his heart’s desire and be pampered as he deserves!

If you think that Clef is the right dog for you, contact Austin Pets Alive! for more information.
