|Animal ID: 1436Autumn (female)|
Autumn, is our 'Kentucky Girl,' She has been with us since the Summer, and is now looking for a furever family. She is smart, active, playful, curious. She needs a fenced yard to exercise and chase away all your critters. She still doesn't have a recall that we trust, as she has the nose a bloodhound and will follow it. She remains a 'work-in-progress' when it comes to trust. She did well with our pre-school grandchildren, but we see flashes of 'get-back-jack' with some dogs at the dog park. She wants to bark at the door: protection, not aggression. She is UTD, spade, a healthy 40 pounds of delightful girly- girl. Do you have a home for our Autumn? Currently in SE Pennsylvania. If you're interested in adopting Autumn, please fill out this application: http://www.australianshepherdsfurever.org/adoption-application Her adoption fee is $295 and all proceeds from her adoption go towards future rescues.

|Animal ID: 1467Barstow (male)|
Hi I'm Barstow, a two year old boy who's a Border Collie Mix. I'm a sweet boy who just wants to have fun and be with my handler. I have excellent handler focus who would excel in dog agility or flyball, I am HIGH ENERGY AND HAVE LOTS OF DRIVE. Though I am high energy, my foster says I am quite manageable and great off leash, I just want to please!!! My foster suggest that my people would be active (not just walks, that's just getting me started!) but would need vigorous exercise and stimulation daily, maybe even three times a day! They say a Collie with a job is a content Collie, and happy one too! My future people would also be experienced in herding dogs with their activity level and their behavior. My humans need to be confident and firm with me, but also gentle, I am a bit sensitive.It is also important I go to a home where I am integrated into the household. I'm a polite dog in the house and house trained, I enjoy hanging out with humans and can be seen as Velcro. Did I mention I don't have a tail??? My foster says it makes me unique and cute as can be. I am VERY trainable, and already know SIT, STAY and shake. I get along with dogs but can be a bit nippy and herd, I can't help it, and that's why my owners need to have experience with Border Collies! I am neutered and up to date with shots, I'm a healthy boy and ready to meet my people. Will you consider me into your life?

|Animal ID: 1223Callum (male)|
This sweet boy is Callum and he is looking for his Furever Family. He is 7 y/o old 50lb laid back guy that is your typical Velcro aussie and will follow you wherever you go. Callum is completely house trained, does have kennel anxiety but completely minds his manners when left alone in the house while we are gone. Callum would do best in a quiet home where someone is around a lot since he loves his people so much. He gets along with other dogs but would rather they be his napping buddy and not so much a playmate. Cats seem to be pretty distracting to him so not a good idea to have cats in the home. He does well on a leash and loves to go for walks and car rides and being brushed. Of course Callum is completely vaccinated, micro chipped, neutered and on flea and heartworm prevention. If you think you can look at his cute face on a daily basis please consider adopting him and giving the home/family he has been wanting If you are interested in making Annie part of your family, please complete our application:http://www.australianshepherdsfurever.org/adoption-application Her adoption fee is $325 and all fees are used for future rescue (Less)

|Animal ID: 1447Charlie (male)|
Hi, I'm Charlie located in Kingwood, Texas. If you are into gingers, then I'm your man. I'm a strapping, muscular, 2 year old red tri Aussie. Tipping the scales at 66lbs., I'm on the large end of the Aussie spectrum and a stunning specimen to behold. I'm a big love bug and will lay next to you, on my back, legs spread out and front legs in the air. I will also follow you everywhere, even to the bathroom. Your scent amuses me. I will stick my nose in the shower to bite the shower stream. If you have a water hose in the backyard, that's even better. I came from a home with a little girl, so I love children and I'm good with other dogs unless they are too dominant. I do enjoy toys and will play with anything that looks like fun, even empty water bottles or cardboard boxes. Because of my size, I would do better in a home with kiddos 7 years or older, as sometimes I don't know my own strength. I'm very smart and know sit, shake and high five (also high ten) and have unlimited potential. I have stellar behavior on a leash in a public setting as I don't get anxious or overly excited and I'm indifferent when being pet by strangers. I do like to run free if you leave the door open, so I need to be leashed or harnessed when I'm out and have a fenced back yard. My foster family has been working with me on 'stay' when the door is open and I have made some progress. Since I'm 2, I'm fully house trained and don't chew. I've been working on crate training and will 'kennel up' on command 80% of the time. The other 20% of the time, you need to hold my collar, direct me toward the kennel and I'll walk right in. I will bark when you leave as I already miss you, but I do settle down and relax after a bit. I'm UTD on shots and will be neutered this week. I'll be available for adoption soon, so don't let me be the one that got away!

|Animal ID: Courtesy PostHuckleberry (male)|
This sweet boy is Huckberry and he is about 2.5 years old. His birthday is 3/29/15. He weighs 65 lbs, is neutered and UTD. Huckleberry is well trained, groomed and has been an active healthy pup. Huckleberry enjoys going outside for walks and is very affectionate towards his owners and friends. Trainers who have worked with him have often described Huckleberry as very sensitive to his surroundings and having a shy demeanor. Huck does lack some confidence around meeting new people and new animals. This has been incredibly difficult for us living in a city and being surrounded by new people and animals. He doesn't do well in an urban environment. Huckleberry needs an experienced owner in a quiet home with a big yard to run around and play. I do believe this would bring him the joy that he deserves. If you are interested in giving this sweet boy a wonderful home, please email me at: Tdeguire@sandiego.edu (Less)

Probably no on smaller kids too, she like to herd a little too much. She came from DAS the same day as Lucy. She was insane to contain in the car but has gotten much better since.

Callie is a 5 year old around 45lbs shy, sweet female aussie who was an outside dog for the beginning of her life. Callie is a bit timid at first but is very sweet once comfortable. She has great manners and is good on leash. Callie has shown interest in balls, loves to run after them and catch them, just hasn't got the hang of bringing them back to you yet. Callie is fine with other dogs. She is spayed, utd, heartworm negative and on monthly preventatives. Callie quickly learned the doggy door. Callie needs a patient loving home to show her what being an inside dog is all about.

|Animal ID: 1418Lucy (female)|
Lucy Ann is ready to find her forever home! She is the sweetest girl we have ever met. She loves EVERYONE and cocks her head in the cutest way! She is an Aussie/Husky mix (we think), spayed female, 42 lbs, and is a little under one year old. She gets along well with older kids and other dogs. She is still a puppy, and like all puppies, will need continued training and supervision. She walks well on a leash, unless there is a squirrel nearby. She is housetrained, but will need to be watched for her cue to be let out. A formal training class will be beneficial for both owner and pup to ensure good communication and future good behavior. Lucy Ann gets along well with other dogs and plays heartily with our 11 month old pup. She is happy to stay in her crate overnight and for short periods of time. She will NOT be a good candidate for staying in a crate for long periods of time while an owner is at work. She will need a secure fenced yard with no holes underneath or low spots to jump. She needs plenty of room to run and lots of walks, hikes, exercise and stimulating play. She has a high prey drive and gets very excited about squirrels and other small animals. She chases our cat, but with supervision and corrections, she has been getting better. She has many Husky breed traits (sweet, vocal, high energy and endurance, strong prey drive, escape artist, need to be mentally and physically challenged.) Lucy will do well with an owner that understands the challenges of owing a working dog with husky traits, as this breed is often purchased or adopted because of their sweet disposition and beauty, and later realize that they are too much to handle. She will do well with a person that wants her as a best friend, a great jogging, running and hiking buddy. A cooler climate or a place with snow would be great for this girl, with her thick, husky type coat. Lucy will be a wonderful friend to the lucky person that adopts her later. We will miss her! When requesting more information, please include your telephone number and state that you live in. All of our fosters are volunteers. The more info you provide initially will help with the large call and email volume.

|Animal ID: 1404Sassy (female)|
Meet Miss Sassy! She will be available for adoption in November. She came from a small hoarding situation in TX a few months ago and was scared and skinny. Sassy has come a long way and still has progress to make, but she will be a wonderful Velcro dog for a patient, loving owner. She is two years young, very playful, and gets along with other dogs after she gets to know them. She ignores our cat. She walks well on a leash, comes when called and sticks close. This little 25 pound Aussie- BC mix is a wonderful size that is easy to handle and great to travel with. Sassy is still shy and will need someone to be patient and understanding. She bonds well and will be good with someone that is home a lot, as she is worried about being left alone right now. We are working on that. Still shy, but coming out of her shell, getting socialized and becoming a traveler! Please keep your eyes out for her when she is ready! If you think you might be the perfect family for Sassy please fill out an application at http://www.australianshepherdsfurever.org/adoption-application Her adoption fee is $295 and all proceeds from her adoption go towards future rescues (Less)

|Animal ID: 1057Doreen (female)|
People call me Doreen. I weigh around thirty pounds, just turned a year old, and know lots of tricks like 'come,' 'sit,' 'down,' 'stay,' and 'shake.' (We're working on 'play dead' and 'no bark,' and I'm a pretty quick learner.) I love to snuggle with my people. Australian Shepherds Furever helped to rescue me as a small puppy from a hoarding outfit and placed me in a loving home in Dallas. I hung onto a few quirks from my childhood; I still eat my meals too quickly and sneak into other's beds--whether another dog or my family's. Crate training and my special cloverleaf bowl have helped me work through a lot of those issues. I also appear to be part Jack Russell Terrier. I love my people but can be quite territorial and feisty around strangers as is typical for a Jack Russell Terriers. My current owners have reached out to a trainer, so I can work on mellowing out and thrive in my new home. Although I'm easy going most of the time, I am best suited for a family who can handle my at times challenging temperament. On three occasions when I was overly excited, I bit folks who I incorrectly perceived as a threat. I didn't mean to do so, but my Jack Russell instincts sometimes kick in. My family has a senior, male border collie with whom I'm smitten. Unfortunately I'm not a good fit for small children or homes with cats, and my current family has both. I'm as sweet as I am good looking and would be the perfect addition to a family who can offer me plenty of stimulation and structure. (Less)

Mork aka Chopper is around 3 years old and an aussie mix. At first he can be a bit unsure of people and may be a bit snippy when uncomfortable, but is easily corrected and is a big love once he decides you're his friend. He will kind of give a light paw tap at you to ask for a hug. He is a gentle hugger. He would prefer a quiet home, where he gets lots of attention and walks. He is crate trained, house trained, uses a doggy door, utd, neutered, and on monthly flea/tick and heartworm medication. He has started pre-treatment for heartworm and will get the fast treatment shots in the very near future, which will be followed by thirty days crate rest and then he will be ready to find his forever home.

|Animal ID: 1336Shelby (female)|
This is Shelby, ruler and defender of the Universe. Or so she thinks. Or so she attempts to be to the chagrin of her foster mom and dog siblings. Otherwise, Shelby is a beautiful girl who is playful, affectionate, and smart. With these amazing Aussie traits, lies the drive for Universe domination, a sassy attitude, and the need to be the boss, because hey•À%BD'•À%BD|everyone else is incompetent and can't manage without her. She is about 3 years old, 44 pounds, a cryptic merle (not full merle patterning), utd on shots, spayed, healthy, and active. She loves long walks, swimming, food (hers and everyone else's. She has the misguided assumption that she has total claim on all food in the house) and snuggling with her people. For all of her bravado, she is a most excellent snuggler and giver of affection, as most successful and beloved World Domination leaders are. She is verbal as in 'everybody better listen to me because I am here to tell you what to do' kind of verbal with barks and growls. She does not like strangers be they people, dogs, squirrels, birds, cats, you name it. Even though she likes to play with her foster dog siblings, she would benefit from a home without another dog but neighborhood playmates are ideal. She would also benefit from more obedience training and socialization. It is recommended this little Would-Be-Ruler of the Universe have an experienced Aussie owner who is comfortable handling dominant dogs and who would have patience with her as she transitions to her forever home. She would also benefit with a home where she would have a job, other than setting and enforcing the rules she creates.

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.
