Pet name:
Australian Cattle Dog, Blue Heeler
Coat length:
This big, golden, gem of a Cattle dog was rescued by the ACDRA 4 years ago. We found him a loving home where he was adored but sometimes unforeseen things happen; Luca’s family had to move and Luca couldn’t go. So he’s back with the ACDRA and we are looking for his perfect furever home.

Luca is wonderful, loving, and devoted to his people. He loves attention, games and companionship. He’s smart, he’s charming, and a little bit of a clown; a perfect ACD.

Luca is thoroughly devoted to his people but can be selective about the dogs he hangs with, and he has a high prey drive so he’ll do best as an only pet. Like many cattle dogs, he can be mouthy on occasion, so he’s best suited to adults or older teenagers. Luca has lots of energy but adjusts to his surroundings – high energy gets high energy, calm days on the couch gets a chill dog. He does GREAT on a leash and responds well to directions, even when he’s meeting new dogs (while leashed) but he can get overly exuberant during greetings. He’d love an active human companion or three to take him on hikes, down to the river and on regular adventures. Luca LOVES to play fetch.

Luca is housebroken, up to date on vaccines, neutered and microchipped. We also have all his vet records for the last four years. Luca is a big boy, about 60 to 65lbs. And is 6 years old.

Luca is currently staying at a boarding facility in Kingston, NC where this lovey clown is becoming a favorite of the staff. Watch his videos; you’ll see why. If you have questions about Luca please email If you are interested in adopting Luca, please complete an application at
