Adopt Woofie an #AustralianCattleDog Mix @WaysideWaifs in #KCMO

This handsome fellow is Woofie.  Don't you just love that sweet face and name?  Woofie is a 5 year old Australian Cattle Dog / Shepherd mix.

Woofie is crate trained, knows sit and come commands.  He had some hard time on the streets and tends to be fearful of other dogs.  He's hoping for a forever home with no small children or cats. 

Here's Woofie's adoption message:
I am an Australian Cattle Dog/Shepherd mix male dog of 41 lbs. I am medium in size and about 5 yrs. old. You will love my fur because it is dense and very fluffy and soft!

I have been without a home for a while and found on the street by a caring person that took me in. They hoped they could find my owner by themselves but that didn't come to be. This person wanted to add me to their family but they had too many other dogs already. I became crate trained and feel I am at least partially house trained. Being the smart dog I am commands of "sit", and "come" were easy for me to learn. Food really gets my attention for training purposes. My breed back ground and current behavior suggests I am a high energy dog and need attention and activity to keep me happy. So if you are an active outdoor person I would love to me you! My capacity for learning is limitless just give me a chance.
 I have been tested with other dogs here at the shelter and I find that it is over whelming. I tend to freeze up from fear and will growl to protect myself. Life on the street is unpredictable and so I carry that memory with me. I know that forever home is just around the corner! The new family needs to give me a little tenderness and go slow for me to gain confidence in myself and in them. When approaching me if I seem very nervous it is suggested that you make yourself look smaller by kneeling down to the ground or sitting. Humans are so tall! I have the great heritage of very intelligent dog bloodlines and would make an excellent companion.
To add to my back ground it is known that I have been around older children and did fine but I am not recommended for children under 5 years. No cats please or other small furry animals. Please bring your family and other dogs to meet me if you want to add me to your family so we can meet on neutral territory and become friends first.
Your friend, Woofie
