Abbott's history is a bit of a mystery. All we know is that he wandered up to a man's house one day, and since the man couldn't keep him, he's now at Best Friends.Abbott is an Australian cattle dog mix who is young (born 2012) and playful. He loves romping with other dogs, and toys. He might bark at people at first, and he can be a little protective of barriers, but once you start talking to him, he is all wags and wiggles. He'll even lean in for hugs and belly rubs!A great dog all around, Abbott would love to go home with you!
