New furkid maybe?...

Camryn here:
Mom frequently looks at Pet Finder rescue sites, just cause she likes too.  Suddenly last night she saw one that was love at first site.  She showed Dad (she never ever does that) and asked what he thought about adopting this rescue.  He asked where he'd live, Mom said, Ummmm with us in the house.  Dad looked some more, read the discription and said yes!!!  So, Mom filled out the application, referances have been contacted.  Ivy gots appointment to be spay, a month earlier than planned.  The rescue requires this.   Once all the referances be checked out, the Vet already gave theirs, the rescue will come do a check on our home and yard.  Dad must have even been checking the site out at work cause he emailed Mom a pic of our new potential furkid. He's excited too!
Oh, guess I should show you right?
This is "Fable", he's a 1 1/2 year old Austrailian Cattle Dog.  He's said to be pretty mellow and laid back for an ACD, a people pleaser attitude.  He and a female was found as strays, not onced but twice, the first time their peoples claimed them, the second they didn't.  Their loss is hopefully our gain I say.  Sadly the female didn't pass the tempermant test so didn't make it into rescue.  Fable has been in foster care being loved on, checked on with kids, other dogs, training, and getting neutered.   Mom's seen video of him playing fetch n stuff, something she really misses from Onyx n Tye.  While I play fetch Ivy n Promise find it beneeth them. 
Reason Fable's picture had Mom askin Dad and probly the reason Dad was "yes" so quick like isn't cause he looks like Onyx.  Onyx was a Cardigan Welsh Corgi so didn't have legs, but he has the "look" of Onyx.  Kind of like us horses have that "kind eye" look!  Fable has that "I'll be your heart dog look".  Mom has always been drawn to ACD's she's not sure why.  Probably cause like us Haflingers they get misjudged as being stubborn and hard headed when all they really are (like me) is super uber smart and get bored easy.
Promise, Ivy & Fable must also approve of each other.  Shouldn't be a prob since all our furkids play well with others.  Mom asked if maybe Emily should meet him too, she's here pretty often.  The rescue lady can't wait to meet me, she's never met a horse that plays fetch :)
So keep all fingers/paws/hooves crossed that Fable gets to come live here and be loved on.
Oh, so what do you all think of the name Fable for a boy dog?  Mom wasn't sure at first, but it's growin on her.

  3. Dixie gives her paws up because her BFF next door is an Australian Cattle Dog!!! The 2 of them are inseparable and love playing outside together! It took me awhile to get use to the ACD but she is awesome to herd up the sheep and listens to me on a dime.....though she has gotten kicked by my one miniature horse cuz she just pushes a little too much sometimes;)

    1. Yeah, we're going to have to take our time with Camryn. Thinking we'll keep his herding in check with the girls and work from there.

    1. Yeah, we think he's quite handsome with that strong head. So far Fable is winning. Mom really likes the name BUT think it's more girlie and doesn't come offa her toungue so good.

  5. I like him, so everything crossed that it all works out.

    If "Fable" is too girlie, how abourt "Sable" instead? Kinda goes with his blue merle colour & doesn't sound so different that it will confuse the poor boy.

    1. Sable is a reddish color SIGH! We agree that finding a similar sounding name would be best. So far, cable, table, able if his name is change it's gonna sound differant. I guess.
