The one with that golden paw!

Hi guys! My name is Midas, and everything I touch, becomes my family! I am a 2 year old, 42 lb male Australian Cattledog mix. I have been fixed and working hard on my good manners. I am bathroom and crate trained and working on leash walking skills.

So what’s that on my nose you ask? The very sign of human cruelty. I had a so-called owner who took a machete to my face and neck. Pris from Los Adoptables took me in very kindly and then TAP stepped in to bring me to my most amazing foster home. Pris cared for me and found out I was fully blind but with medical intervention, I have regained vision. I do have cataracts and partial retinal detachment. I will have a follow up with an eye specialist in about 3 months wherever my new family wants to take me and they can decide if I need a surgery at that point.

Now that’s out of the way, let’s focus on my golden qualities. Do you like class clowns? I am that! I keep everyone in splits with my high energy fun loving nature and goofy antics. Being a cattledog, I love work and play and tricks and treats! From lounging on the couch watching tv to going to the park and playing for what seems like forever I am the boy that can do it all. I am very dog friendly and having a playful dog playmate will keep me so happy! I have met kids but not for long enough. But I sure am adaptable!

My foster mama is astounded that in spite of seeing unexplainable cruelty, I have so much love in my heart! What can I say, I am the golden child afterall! I would love a home with a yard where I can play and hang out with my doggo sibling. I would love mental and physical enrichment and will make a great workout companion. And when you need a TV date? Just call me and we will be snuggle buddies. If you want that loving touch in your life, you better meet me! My adoption fee is $250 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip.
