|Animal ID: 1750Lila (female)|
Lila is a very pretty girl with a happy attitude. She is a party girl. EVERYTHING is a party - getting out of her crate - going outside - coming in - getting lovies - checking to see if there is anything new to play with or steal - getting lovies - checking the windows. She is very affectionate and playful. She is good with other dogs and she would be ok by herself. She NEEDS activity and would be great for long walks or romps in the yard. She is good with other dogs of all sizes but doesn't much care for puppies. She doesn't harm them - but wants to get away from those strange creatures. She has not been around small children, but is friendly to all people she's met. She is an easy dog to be around - fun - happy - playful - gentle. She is house, crate, and leash trained - and will use a doggy door. She knows some basic commands - outside - come - and she crates easily. However, she doesn't know that everything in the house isn't hers. She assumes that if she can reach it - it is hers or should be. She shouldn't be left unattended until she learns that some things are not hers. Activity will make that easier - long walks - interactive play times with her people - so that when she comes in she is ready to rest. A sweeter dog you couldn't find. Lila, a purebred Australian Shephard, will be 4 years old in June. She weighs about 50 pounds (we are on a little diet right now). She is fully vetted and microchipped. All she needs now is a loving family to make her life complete. Lila is being fostered near Oklahoma City. http://www.australianshepherdsfurever.org/adoption-application (Less)

|Animal ID: 1779Caesar (male)|
Coming soon! Caesar is looking for a new family to love. He is an 8-9 month old Aussie mix located in Houston, Texas. He will get his shots, and be neutered and microchipped the week of March 26th and should be ready for his furever home in early to mid-April! Caesar has a very nice personality! Only moderate energy, which is surprising for such a young boy with Aussie in him. Good about staying off furniture, no counter surfing yet. Has zero ball catching skills, but does fetch and bring it back and put the ball right in your hand. Flyball and agility are not in his future, but perhaps could be a jogging buddy. He knows sit but has not been taught down, stay, or come. He pulls and zig zags on leash, and he jumps, so his foster is working hard to correct those behaviors. He hasn't chewed anything but his antler and Kong, except for a bit of mouthing on foster's hand and arm, which is puppy behavior, and he's easily redirected to chew the antler. He seems wary of electric cords so it's possible he had a negative experience there. No resource guarding. He takes food from foster's hand very gently and lets her take things away from him. Caesar also lets her pick him up. He's a bit reserved when strangers approach. He rolls over on his back for belly rubs. Not too kissy - just a little bit every now and then. Caesar has a big, deep bark that his foster loves, but wishes he wouldn't bark at passing dogs. He starts barking when he goes outside, and sometimes incites other dogs to bark, which his foster would like to work on, but Caesar seems to be having fun doing it, so it may be a challenge. Perhaps he was a backyard dog in his former life. He does not allow birds or squirrels in his territory. Caesar rides very well in a car - he settles down in the back seat with no crate. No potty accidents indoors except once on the first day. Settles right down in both crate and laundry room. His foster considers him highly adoptable. Caesar absolutely adores his foster's husband so we think he prefers men. He gets really happy when his foster's husband comes home from work. Hopefully Caesar's furever home has a another man for him to adore! http://www.australianshepherdsfurever.org/adoption-application (Less)

|Animal ID: 1725Lillian (female)|
Hi I'm Lillian, But my foster family calls me 'Nana' and I am up for adoption!!! I love my foster brothers but I don't especially care for my foster sister or any other female dogs for that matter. It would probably be best if I was the only female dog in my Furever home. I LOVE to give hugs and kisses and I only jump up when you ask me to. I have had no accidents in the house and also love the doggie door. I stay off the furniture unless invited and now love sleeping in my crate, I think naps are just the best. I am currently learning how to loose leash walk. Sometimes I like the bark at the passing neighbors and visitors but I'm learning that strangers give me the best pets and treats but I still need a few minutes to trust them and make sure it's safe. I don't mind thunderstorms cause I'm a big girl. I know how to sit, lay down and to come. I do great with kids, you can pull on my ears and blow bubbles in my face but as long as I get to give kisses back. My foster mom says I'm just the sweetest and prettiest and so so soft. I'm not sure exactly how I feel about cats just yet. I ask that any meet and greets are about an hour or more so that I can get comfortable and show you some real love. Approx 12-18 months old Potty trained Crate trained Kids ok Male dogs ok Female dogs no Cats unknown Last weighed on 3/9 48 lbs still needs to gain a few pounds. Interested?

|Animal ID: 1754Lilly (female)|
Hi everyone. My name is Lilly Bug and I'm a (28# 'hefty') 3.5 year old mini-Aussie. My foster mom found me on Craigslist. I was being 'rehomed' because my previous moms wanted to travel. They said I had some issues with men and with barking, but I really love my foster Dad and my foster brother. I will bark at strangers though-until Someone shows me they are trustworthy (can you say 'treats'?) I love to run and explore on the property, but always come as soon as I hear my name. I get along with all of my furry foster brothers and sisters (except the annoying little DM Aussie in the House-she's too rambunctious and doesn't mind my space too well). I had a BF that was a cat, but the cats in my foster home don't seem to want to play with me. I take morning and evening walks to the chicken coop and don't seem to mind when the 'girls ' go scurrying away. I just help collect the eggs. I can walk on a leash really well, but I'm so well behaved that I'm usually off-leash. I am crate trained as well. When I'm really relaxed, I love to chase and retrieve a tennis ball. Sometimes I can even beat the retriever to the ball! I'm not a big fan of getting on the people furniture, but love dog beds. As for kids, so long as they don't move too quickly and respect my space, I can adapt. But I really prefer older more veteran humans. My foster mom thinks I'm ready for my new home, so, here I am! Can you help me find the perfect home?

I'm a low energy kind of dog but I bet when I get my summer body back I'll be running with the big dogs? My foster mom says I kinda waddle and look like a roly poly when I sleep on my back.

|Animal ID: 1730Maddox (male)|
Hello, I am Maddox. I'm a 1 year old Australian Shepherd mix. I'm approximately 50lbs, and worth my weight in gold my foster mom says (it's true). I absolutely love being outside in the fresh air for walks and smells. Learning to follow commands on a leash still, but doing very well. I'm ok with cats. I do like to chase them because I am curious, but I never hurt them. I love having brothers and sisters to play with, and humans are great too (even little ones). I have medium energy, and love to play and sleep equally. I am house trained, know some basic commands, I don't mind being in a kennel when you are gone but I have been left to roam around and do great in the house as well. I mind my manners but there are lots of things to play with and learn about so i get distracted, and need some redirection occasionally. That's the puppy in me. I do like to have my human close to me at times. I mean close, like right on top of a lap close. I also like my space as well when I am tired, I find a spot and get comfy. If you have a loving home and think you could provide me with lots of cuddles and love, you could be the one for me. http://www.australianshepherdsfurever.org/adoption-application Adoption fee is $295 and all fees are used for future rescue efforts.

|Animal ID: 1639Edin (female)|
Hello, I'm Edin, in Ben Bolt Texas, but my foster mom usually calls me Girly or Sweetheart. I'm about 1-2 years old and about 45 lbs. I am a beautiful red bi border collie/aussie mix with a long tail that never stops wagging. I'm looking for an active home. My foster mom says that I have plenty of energy to go around. I'm energetic, fun and loving. I'm still working on my manners, but I will go into the crate and settle down quietly. I have not had an accident since being at my foster home, but my foster mom is pretty vigilant about making sure I go outside for potty breaks on a set schedule. I really enjoy being outside and will ask to be let out every afternoon. I walk pretty well on a leash and I know sit and shake. Still a little afraid of jumping into my foster mom's truck, but once she carries me up in there I lay down quietly and enjoy the ride. I am very treat oriented and a fast learner. If someone could continue working with me on my tricks, obedience and manners, I know I would excel in that. I am fine with dogs, even my foster mom's reactive Aussie. I haven't met any cats or young children, but I believe a home with older kids or just adults would be great as I still get excited and like to jump occasionally. I am working on that though. Please consider me. http://www.australianshepherdsfurever.org/adoption-application $295 adoption fee and all fees are used toward future rescue efforts. (Less)

Hi my name is Sadie, I was given up for chasing my owners livestock. I am around 7 years old and love all people big and small. I can be picky about my dog friends. My foster dad said it took me a couple of days to warm up to my foster brother but I did and now I'm part of the pack. I have gone to dog parks with my foster dad with no issues. I am on the side of being lazy and like to lay around and relax but do get my butt to wiggle when my person comes home. I don't need a crate because I have no need to bother anything. I am at 56 lbs but could stand to loose a little weight. My foster dad says I'm a good girl. I am fully vetted, spayed and heartworm negative. I am looking for that special family that will love me forever! I'm good with kids of all ages and love the kids I've met with my foster dad. I haven't been around many cats so would probably need to meet one to decide if I could live with one. I would love to be the center of someone's universe so I can spend all my time being loved and cherished.

Hello Everyone!, my name is Harley (aka Charlie) and I'm looking for my furever home. I'm a handsome 7 yr old black bi Australian Shepherd blend and I LOVE the outdoors!! I am truly in my element when I'm outside where I am free to run, play, and stretch my long legs. My foster mom thinks I run like a horse and I still have my tail! Outside, I enjoy long walks where I get to meet new friends like the postman and neighbors. I don't pull at the leash or bark at passing dogs or anything like that. I love to ride in the car and will sit in the back with the window open with no issue. I am a bit of an alpha-male though, I want to be the top dog. I would not mind being your soul companion. I do like to play with some dogs, too but would be best as a only pet. My dream-come-true home would be a place with wide open spaces. I'm not high energy, but I'm certainly not lazy. I'm learning to play fetch and getting used to assorted tasty treats; however, I do have a discriminating pallet and really not into a 'grain-free' diet. I've never been around cats. I have nipped a toddler and mom because the child was climbing and jumping on top of me.(I'm not sure why anyone would think that's ok) so I'd prefer to stay clear of small children. After the incident, my last owner started locking me in a crate full time, so I'd rather not be crated and since I am housebroken and not destructive, I really don't need to be. If you think that I sound like the perfect fit for your family, please fill out the application: http://www.australianshepherdsfurever.org/adoption-application My adoption fee is $295 and all fees are used to rescue more dogs like me.

|Animal ID: 1589Dallas (male)|
Meet Dallas. He is looking for his Furever home. He is a slim 40lb blue Merle aussie who is about 8 years old. He excels at fetch and would love a large fenced in yard so he could step out his front door and play but would also be ok with several trips a week to the dog park. He is awesome on the leash both on the road and hiking trails. He knows basic commands, sit, down, shake and is an expert cuddler at 40lbs. Seriously, perfect lap dog size! He has been good about getting off the furniture lately when asked, however, this was not always the case and needs a special person who will continue to be his strong pack leader. For this reason he also needs a family with no children. Also, a home without any cats. He has done well with all dogs he has met. He is a loyal boy who will patrol the house occasionally to make sure everyone (except the cat) are ok. (Maybe he is protecting us from the cat!). His theme song is 'you can't always get what you want' and he also answers to 'Dilly'. Ps. I do have pictures that are of him doing an activity other than sleeping but I'm in the process of switching phones.

|Animal ID: 1337Pookie (male)|
Pookie is a beautiful, energetic, and sweet dog! He is 5 å%BD years old, is up-to-date on all vaccinations, and is neutered. He is completely house-trained and crate-trained (though he prefers to be with you if you are home). We don't know anything about Pookie's previous owner. We noticed Pookie's teeth were worn down drastically, so we think he came from a place that chained him outside or kept him cooped up and this is the result of him trying to gnaw his way out. When Pookie came from us from the shelter, he was heartworm positive, defensive, and untrusting. However, a lot has changed since we first met Pookie! Pookie is now full of love and energy and trusts us completely. He went through a 2-month heartworm treatment. We're still working on some of his manners, but he is a very intelligent dog and we suspect he will continue to learn quickly! Pookie has gotten much better with resource guarding (food, water, rawhides) since we first brought him home. After a lot of trust-building, he now listens when we tell him to 'leave it.' Pookie was around 75-80 pounds when we got him from the shelter- he did gain some weight while being confined to his crate during his heartworm treatment, but we are working to get this back down with increased activity J Pookie appears to be a very 'family unit' type of dog. He is very loving and trusting of us, but is always suspicious of strangers. Strangers are introduced in the house while he is crated, then we just leave him alone until he watches us interact with them over time. We do not know how he is with children, so we don't think he should go to a family with a young child. He is very food motivated, so treats and cookies will help him learn to trust you and others. We are continually working on socializing him with other dogs he meets. He loves to play with our little dog Dawson, but is guarded around strange dogs.Pookie would do well in a family without another dog, or with a dog that is passive. This will take patience on the adopter's end- it took about 2 months before Pookie wanted anything to do with our dog, but now they are best friends! Pookie loves to go outside. Because we don't have a fenced-in yard, we make sure to take him walking/jogging every day to get his energy out. He absolutely has a herding instinct, as he always wants to chase rabbits, squirrels, and birds. We have also noticed that Pookie likes to chase/herd cars. We are continually trying to break him of this, however, we think Pookie would do best in a home out of the city that is away from heavy-traffic areas. Because we don't know how Pookie does off-leash in an open area, we prefer his future home to have a large, fenced-in yard he can run around and play in! He has LOADS of energy! His absolutely favorite thing in the world is to be brushed. If you bring a brush out he will follow you to wherever you go and jump and wait for you to brush him. You could brush him while he lies on his back for an hour and he would never move! Pookie's furever home should be patient with him, as he will take a while to open up and trust you. Once he does, you will find a loving dog that just wants to lay on the bed with you and be given some love!

|Animal ID: 1531Tamzin (female)|
Tamzin is a very sweet energetic Aussie mix that absolutely loves people and she is in search of her forever home. Since bringing Tamzin into our home we have really watched her come out of her shell. She has gone from a dog that would cower and shake at even the slightest sudden sound to a sweet energetic dog that loves to play and absolutely adores her people. In fact one of her favourite things now is to give hugs. Tamzin is shy when she first meets someone but once she gets to know you she is the true definition of a velcro dog. The only thing that we haven't been able to work her through is her fear of other dog's. Unfortunately we don't know what her past was like or what could have happened to her to give her this fear but as a result of it Tamzin's future home will have to be one without other dog's and no cats. Tamzin is very smart and she is taking to basic obedience well. She is also house and crate trained. She is estimated to be between 3-4 years old and weighs 40lbs If you think Tamzin will fit your family please fill out an application at http://www.australianshepherdsfurever.org/adoption-application Her adoption fee is $195 and all proceeds go towards future rescues.

|Animal ID: 1400Donny (male)|
Hi, all! I'm Donny, I'm super handsome and about two years old. I may seem shy and nervous when first meeting you, but after spending some time with you (and bribing me with cheese), I'll warm up to you and play and connect. I've found that if there are other dogs, I'm shy at first, but after a while, I want and like to play. I do like to have a safe place to go, such as under my foster mom's dining table, in the event that I get scared. I'm still a little wary about being picked up,so if I'm going to need to be picked up for whatever reason, please try not to scare me. All I ask is that you please be patient with me while I warm up to you and that you love me like one of your own, and I'll love you and be a good boy for you the best way I can. I have cataracts/birth defect so my vision is limited so just approach me from the front. Let me warm up to you, and I promise that I will show you how much energy and love I have! If you are interested in adopting me please fill out an application at http://www.australianshepherdsfurever.org/adoption-application His adoption fee is $295 and all proceeds from his adoption go towards future rescues.

|Animal ID: 1530Moxie (female)|
Hi! I'm Moxie. I'm about 1-2 years old. I'm a bit shy at first, but it'll take me no time to warm up to you. I'm utd on shots, spayed, microchipped, & on heartworm prevention. I love to go wild outside running and jumping, but if it's time to be inside I will find a comfy spot and do just that. I would rather not be crated, but don't worry I will not get into much trouble if I'm left out... unless I find underwear (clean or dirty, his or hers I don't discriminate) or paper I can chew on. I get along great with other dogs and I'm also fantastic with kids! I will lick you and them till you all get sick of it. If you're looking for a pup to be active with or just hang out with and love up on you...Look no further, I'm your gal!! If you are interested in adopting Moxie please fill out an application at http://www.australianshepherdsfurever.org/adoption-application Her adoption fee is $195 and all proceeds from her adoption go towards future rescues.

|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)
