Meet Onyx!

Hi, I’m Onyx! I’m like my brother Otis, I like to play a lot but my favorite game is chase! I’ll chase the ball, kids, my fur siblings all over! I don’t discriminate! I’m also an explorer that can sometimes turn into a hide and seek game if you don’t keep your eyes on me! After all that playing, I’ll find a nice spot to lay down and sleep.

I was born 3/31/23

Cattle dog experience preferred

**The Australian Cattle dog was designed for the job of herding. To that end they tend to “nip” at your heels as they try to herd you to where they want you to go. Young yelling kids are perfect for herding! These dogs have almost boundless reserves of energy that are almost impossible to drain, and if not regularly exercised, they can swiftly turn to mischievous behavior. They are famously loyal, smart, and alert animals that make great family pets. We wanted to add this to these dogs as it’s important to really understand the breed you are applying for.

  • We adopt to locations within a 2 hour radius from the Albany NY area (excluding Canada).

  • If you rent please verify that your landlord will allow pit bulls (we will check). And renters must have a 1 year rental history at current location.
