Thank you for your interest in our available dogs. We like to get to know the dogs in our care prior to posting them for adoption so if you do not see the dog you are looking for, feel free to put an interest form in telling us what you are looking for in a forever friend. We love to "match-make" and we may have a dog that is not yet posted that is perfect for you. Once we have an interest form from you, one of our staff will contact you (in 7 - 10 days) to discuss your needs in detail as well as the dog(s) you are interested in.
Please note, if you are unable to see the pictures of our dogs, your browser may not be up to date.
My personality is still evolving as I came from the HSPPR as a transfer from NM with no information and have been in my current home for a little over 3 weeks. I am a sweet boy, and follow my human everywhere around the house, they say I am a true Aussie in that way. I am real laid back in the house and just want to be with my humans.
Breed: Australian Shepherd
Color: Black - with White
Age: 6 years
I am house-trained and I don't chew on inappropriate items. I hate to be isolated, I just want to be with the humans and get love'n. I am smart. I am not a graceful Aussie, more like a linebacker. My humans are working on manners and obedience. I was terrified of car rides but now I hop right in. I LOVE hotdog treats and will do almost anything for them. I still have some quirks but nothing severe. I do get mouthy with play and want to jump up on you when I get real excited, both of which we are working on. My family thinks I was more neglected and not so much abused.
I don't mind some dogs, probably not a big fan of small dogs. When confronted with dog aggression I will not back down and I have postured some dogs and I couldn't tell you why, my human is trying to figure out the triggers as some dogs don't bother me at all. I HATE cats and want to ‘get' them in a bad way…. I do have a tendency to herd as I saw a flock of geese and I was in position to round them up, human said “Leave it” so I did….
I don't seem to mind small children but I can get excitable and become rambunctious and knock kids down and I haven't been around small kids much. I would prefer older humans.
I like to chew on antlers and like tennis balls.
