FOR SALE: Kaci, 6 years, Blue Merle Female DOB: 7/29/09
It is with a heavy heart I write these words, but I have decided I love Kaci so much, I have to let her go. I know that Kaci will have a happier life with another family as an only dog (or one of few). There is no such thing as a perfect dog, but Kaci is about as close as they come. I have never trained her, she has just always known what I needed her to do. I love her dearly and will be very selective about where she is placed. Shipping is not an option. She must be well cared for and have plenty of love; although she doesn’t require much attention, I want her to have it.
Kaci was retired sooner than I would have imagined because she no longer produces milk with her puppies and she has a major change in personality during her pregnancies, which tells me that she just needs to be done. Kaci has produced my all time favorite puppies.
Kaci is fully house trained (although I can’t promise she wouldn’t counter surf if left inside all day with yummy food on the edge of the counter). She would absolutely love to sleep in bed with someone if allowed, but obediently gets out when told. She has been raised with children, but young girls do seem to get on her nerves, she definitely prefers boys, since that is mostly what she knows. Kaci does not require a lot of exercise, but would enjoy taking walks with you. She has only had a collar and leash on when she goes to the vet, so I’m not sure how she would feel about walking on a leash. If walking in the country, it probably wouldn’t be necessary. She doesn’t really fetch, except to be a stinker and steal the ball from Kioda. She still likes to play a little, but doesn’t need to in order to “burn off energy”… she’s actually one of the laziest Aussies I’ve ever known and prefers to just sleep on the couch or cuddle on your legs. Kaci knows the following commands: Come, Leave it, Kennel up, Stay, Out, Off… I’m sure there are more– I pretty much just tell her and she does whatever I ask. She has never been crated and I can’t see any reason why she would need to be at this point. She does have some faults: She barks excessively when strangers are here, but once she meets them she is fine; she tries to be dominant with other females, so I will not let her go to a home with another dominant female dog; She seems to shed more than any other Aussie I’ve ever had, but she is very easy to groom; She charges through your legs to be the first one in and out– which can be dangerous for little kids or older folks. My children know to let her go first so they don’t get pushed down the stairs.
At this point, Kaci has not been fixed and I would want to discuss this with potential new owners.
I absolutely love Kaci and if I could pick the perfect situation for her, it would be in a rural setting as she’s never been in town. She doesn’t really need a fence as once she knows the property she would stay there, especially if the owner is home. If she is going to be left home alone 8 hours a day and then left while family is busy running from evening event to evening event, then she is better off staying here. I am looking for someone who can give her more time than I can. I stay at home, but with 3 children, homeschooling, puppies, and farm chores, I rarely get to sit and cuddle with her. I’d be happy to answer any questions one might have. You can see pictures of Kaci on our Meet our Aussies Page (she is the third female on the page).
