Meet Krissi! She is a 4 and a half year old Shepherd mix and an absolute sweetheart. She was neglected and became excessively overweight (95lbs! around 30lbs overweight), had hotspots all over her body, and her elbows were swollen and bloody from calluses. We have been working hard and she has lost 15 pounds so far! She likes to lounge around and belly rubs are always welcomed. She is great with people and she is okay with other dogs as long as they are not too close to her personal space. She is house trained, has never chewed items, and is very smart. She learns very quickly and cares about her human. She is very calm in the house but loves to go on walks and hikes. Krissi may have had a difficult life previously but that doesn't stop her from loving the people that love her now.ÝÙ%90 If you think Krissi would fit your family then please fill out an application at http://www.australianshepherdsfurever.org/adoption-application.

|Animal ID: 0902Kazakh (male)|
Kaz as we call him is a big, loveable, beautiful, Australian Shephard. He would love to come to your house and lay around on your sofa all day. Kaz is just over 8 years old and needs a forever home. He does best when not around other dogs. He tolerates them but really needs to be in a home where he is the only fur baby. Kaz has been with us for 5 weeks. When he first arrived he was shy and fearful. He is no longer, he has blossomed into a dog that would make any owner happy. He seeks out attention from our staff and works very hard to please all of us, especially the trainers. He has one trust issue and that is taking him by the collar. He does not bite, but for some reason does not like to be led that way. On a leash, no problem. Because he will be transitioning into a new home, as always, I recommend that his new people take him to a training facility (not a chain store) and go through a basic obedience class. This will establish a common ground for both owner and pet. Kaz does have a small weight issue. He came to us 15 pounds overweight. He is still a little chunky, but we have him eating a regular diet now and he is slowly getting back to a normal weight. Please try to find it in your heart to give this big guy a forever home. He really deserves one....... Kaz is microchipped and up to date on all of his vaccinations. He only eats 2 cups of premium dog food a day. He is what we call an EASY KEEPER. If you think Kaz could fit your family please fill out an application at http://www.australianshepherdsfurever.org/adoption-application. His adoption fee is $275 and all proceeds from his adoption go towards future rescues. (Less)

|Animal ID: 1130Maggie (female)|
Hello all! My name is Maggie and I am an Australian Shepherd mix (possibly with catahoula) who is excited to find my very own furever family! I'm about 1.5 years old and approximately 26lbs, so I'm on the smaller side. Some of you may remember me from my somewhat viral first Facebook appearance when I was found with a broken leg left at a shelter in rural Alabama with my little puppy, Sadie! (Now ASF Alumi, Winter!) I had surgery on my leg (yuck!) and had to recover from that but I was determined to heal quickly and get back to running full speed, and here I am doing just that! You can barely tell it even happened once I get warmed up, but I do have a slight limp when I first wake up and sometimes I stop using my leg that was hurt but only for a moment and it doesn't slow me down a bit! I am always happy, sweet and loving, I love to run and play, and I LOVE playing with kids. My foster mom's 2 youngest babies are always covered in Maggie kisses! I am good with other dogs, good in a kennel, and my foster mom says just a good little dog all around! I'm medium energy... I adjust to what everyone else is doing. I'm good inside and don't jump on people, I can lay at your feet or run the back yard at full speed and be happy either way. My foster mom doesn't have any cats but she thinks I would do fine with cats as nothing really bothers me and I don't bark much at all. I am awaiting heartworm treatment and will be spayed before being adopted, but my time is coming and I will be ready before we know it!!!

|Animal ID: 0938Bruiser (male)|
Hello my name is Bruiser and I am looking for a human who likes long walks in the park, scratching dogs behind their ears and belly rubs. I'm okay with all people, I think they're really cool but I'm not so into socializing with cats or other dogs. Some dogs are okay but other just are really annoying. I would rather be an only dog since it's about time I was able to get all the attention and love around here. I am 7 years old but life has been ruff for me and so I look much older. I was sick before with heartworms but my foster mom took care of all that so now I am ready to rock and roll no doube about it and I can still keep up you just watch me. I am good in the house and I know all about going outside to go potty and I don't chew on things in the house so you don't need to put me in a crate like a younger dog. Good thing too I really do hate crates. If you think I might make a good roommate for you please fill out an application to adopt me at http://www.australianshepherdsfurever.org/adoption-application. My adoption fee is $150 and all proceeds from from adopting go towards future rescues. (Less)

|Animal ID: 1202Chester (male)|
Chester is a good dog who tends to be a bit shy at first but will open up given time. He is good with other dogs but hasn't met cats yet so not sure how he would be with them. He needs strangers to allow him to approach them. Once he has warmed up he is super loving and loves to be with his humans. He would do best in a home with another dog or one that takes him to doggy daycare each day to give him an outlet for his energy. He is currently getting continuous obedience training through Off Leash K9 but it would definitely be good to expand his learning up there. He is one amazing little dog who loves to learn and play. If you think that Chester might fit your home please fill out an adoption application at http://www.australianshepherdsfurever.org/adoption-application. His adoption fee is $310. All proceeds from adoptions go towards future rescues. (Less)

|Animal ID: 1141Marshal (male)|
This smart fella has it all-great looks, fantastic athleticism, and a bright mind to boot! MARSHAL is intelligent, playful, and a fast learner. He loves to give (and get) kisses, and is very treat-motivated so he will learn new tricks quickly! Marshal is an agile sporty dude who loves chasing a lobbed tennis ball however, Rally-O and fly-ball would be even better for this challenge-seeking pooch! Marshal is currently perfecting his on-leash manners and is mastering how to walk in a heel position. This brainy beefcake is a lot of dog, so a handler who is physically able and also fair and consistent will be best suited for Marshal, as he is still a puppy at 7-8 months, and 50+lbs. Canine socialization is improving every day. While Marshal still gets excited around other dogs-did I mention that this boy loves to play?!-but he is learning that calm greetings help him make friends more quickly! Cats and small animals are also a big source of interest for inquisitive Marshal; after all, who wouldn't want to investigate (and bark at) these strange little things that fly, hop, and zip across his path during walks? But Canine Einstein here is making great progress with continued training. In the home this gorgeous boy is very comfortable in his crate, can wait patiently for and will let you know when he needs bathroom breaks, and behaves appropriately. Marshal adores Children because he loves nothing better than to chase & be chased as he is still just a mere 'child' himself! One thing Marshal will need when he's left alone is some chew toys. This doggy brainiac tends to get bored without his humans so it would be beneficial to provide him with entertainment in the form of stuffed Kongs and puzzle/chew toys to keep him occupied and/or crated. If you are interested in making Marshal a part of your family fill out an application at http://www.australianshepherdsfurever.org/adoption-application. His adoption fee is $275.

|Animal ID: 1025Kora (female)|
This is Kora, a lovely girl who is estimated to be 8-9 years old. She was found as a stray in the city about to whelp and with a hideous mammary tumor that dragged the ground. It's obvious she has not known much kindness or care before she was found. She is comfortable around new people, but takes a bit to warm up and let someone love on her. A bit of cheese does wonders in winning her over!! Once she trusts you, she'll let you do anything with her. She is typically Aussie smart and is low-key/energy. She seems to have a bit of arthritis in her hind end, so will need to stay on a joint supplement to keep her comfortable. She is fully vetted and ready to find a loving, patient furever home.

|Animal ID: 0871Angi (female)|
Angi is ready for adoption and her forever family. She is a Double Merle Australian Shepherd, 38 lbs and about 5 years old. She is a special dog and will need a special family. She is both blind and deaf and was likely used in a puppy mill for a number of years. She is completely sweet and submissive She likes being petted even more than treats. She will walk on a leash/harness a little and is mostly house trained. As long as you make sure she goes out 4 times a day and keep her on a regular feeding and potty schedule she does not have accidents. She doesn't have accidents in her crate and will whine when she wants to go out. The first day we got her she found her way from the yard to the front door. It took about a week for her to find her food dish. Now she can navigate the yard and find both doors.She can go up stairs, but down only 2 or 3. She will go out on her own if I leave the door open, so she probably could be trained to a pet door-but it would take time.She walks slowly, so is not hard to keep up with. It will also take more time for her to trust and then start to follow you. She is probably not good with cats.

Meet Chester ( long- haired) and Remington (short hair) These two brothers are approximately 2 years old, both dogs are neutered. They have never spent a day apart so looking for a home that will take both. At the moment these boys are penned up and really need room to run. A farm would be ideal or a large fenced (secure) yard as they require a good amount of exercise. They have not spent a huge amount of time with kids but the times they have, they did great! Super friendly and smart. They have never been around livestock or chickens, so I'm not sure how they would do. These dogs are being transported to the PNW from Texas and there will be an additional $160 transport fee for each dog.

This handsome guy is Roadie! He is one of the happiest guys you will ever meet. He weighs in at 27 pounds, is a neutered male, micro-chipped, and up to date on all vaccinations. He is deaf and we are currently teaching him hand signals. In his short time with us, he has already learned come, stay, and sit. He is fully house trained and walks great on a leash. Roadie is good with other dogs and loves playing outside with his foster siblings. He likes long walks and just being outdoors. He is an awesome car rider and loves visiting Lowe's and Tractor Supply with us. He is very well behaved. We are not sure if he is cat friendly as he has not been exposed to one, however he does love to chase squirrels! He is very friendly when meeting people and good with kids. If I had to describe Roadie in one word it would be HAPPY! He is always so glad to see you and has a wonderful bounce in his step and a tail that won't stop wagging! After he came to stay with us, his former foster told me that when dropping Roadie off, her son said 'Now my heart is sad! I just gave away all of mankind's happiness displayed in one dog!' That is a perfect description of him. Roadie loves to cuddle and sleep on his back. He is ready to find his special someone and his furever home!
