This is MITCH



Mitch is a Cattle Dog / Australian Shepherd Mix. This sweet, tiny boy is happy and full of energy despite his condition.  Mitch is a sweetheart and loves to cuddle with his people. This smart boy is already housetrained and will cry and look at his leash to let you know he has to go out. He is crate trained and will go in his bed when he wants to take a nap. He is in foster with many dogs and does well with all of them…playing and snuggling up to the big guys for a nap!
