Rescue Me ID: 15-07-01-00902Desmond (male)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    We all know how we get that awww feeling when we see an adorable puppy. They're so new and fresh with every possibility open to them. That's the case unless they're in a high-kill shelter that quickly runs out of space. We're so grateful for the efforts of our great Oklahoma rescuers in saving Desmond...they could see that his temperament was so sweet and playful in an appropriate puppy-like way, that she couldn't allow him to be euthanized. Desmond is such a sweet and endearing spirit who cuddles against you to show his unending good-will and true love for humans - such a special boy! Desmond was immediately brought for his ... (Read More)puppy-vetting and then on to a great Oklahoma foster home to receive pure love and begin his education. Desmond is just about 15 weeks old now and weighs 15 lbs (expected to be approximately 22 - 25 lbs when full-grown.) He is so very sweet, playful and so cuddly that it's become a fun and rewarding experience for his foster mom. Desmond is as cute as a button and so silly. His foster has said they haven't turned on the TV since Desmond came to their house...he's so entertaining. Desmond is like a blank slate...open and curious about everything around him. If he continues this regiment of socialization that promote positive relationships with other dogs (puppy socialization group classes are highly recommended) and bonding with humans...Desmond will become a well-adjusted and pleasant adult companion. He is a gorgeous Aussie mix puppy with the most striking face...a turquoise eye and a brown eye that look into your eyes with wisdom far beyond his puppyish years. He has the cutest antics ever and a shining coat that speaks of good health. Desmond's wise, yet silly demeanor is just who he is...he just appears to be more entertaining than your average puppy. If he is treated kindly with clear behavioral guidelines, Desmond will become a well-adjusted guy who respects his people as his leaders. This is the kind of family we're searching for for this sweet and snuggly puppy. We also feel it's very important that this very smart guy is provided with exercise and mental stimulation. He would be overjoyed with walking along Colorado paths and enjoying the sunshine with his Colorado family. We'd like a family who spends lots of time at home and chooses to include a fuzzy companion in their activities. Desmond can be taught that the car is a fun place that leads to great adventures out in the community and can therefore accompany his family just about anywhere. Desmond will be arriving in Denver unfixed due to his very young age. Farfel's will be happy to cover all costs in regard to his neuter and microchip at our Denver vet. Desmond will arrive on transport in Denver on 7/11/15. Applications are currently being accepted and can be found at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/. If interested in this sweet and very devoted (and often entertaining) companion, please fill out and return to farfelsapps@gmail.com. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-06-30-00237Hazel (female)

Australian Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi there! My name is Hazel. About a week ago my mom asked if I wanted to go for a car ride and I hopped right in. Little did I know she was dropping me at a scary shelter in New Mexico. Apparently, my grand parents didn't love me and made my mom get rid of me. The shelter is really full and no one is getting adopted. A volunteer named Gina comes to visit me everyday, I really like her. Yesterday she told me that I'm going to Colorado on 7/3. I'm not sure what that means but I like the sound of 'going!'. I hope my kennel mates get out too, I get along with them really well. Whenever Gina comes to visit I shower her with kisses & love. I can ... (Read More)never get enough attention, I just love humans! I miss belly rubs, long walks & butt scratches. Everyone keeps calling me an 'active girl.' I hope wherever I'm going I will get to go on hikes and play with other dogs. Sometimes I just need to run! I also really miss cuddling up on the couch with my people. Like I've always said, 'there is no weight limit on a lap dog!' Anyways, thanks for checking me out! If you want to bring me home please email sunshinecanyondr@gmail.com. (Less)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Spayed 

    My family took in an abandoned pup, but unfortunately she is not very good with my small children (5 & 2) and has shown some aggression with my husband, but is fine around my friend's husband. We took her in hoping to make her part of our family, but since she is not behaving well with my children we need to find her a good, loving home. She will come with a medium size kennel. She seems to be pretty young still so with some training I think she would be a great pet!

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Say hello to John Wayne! This sweet pup came to us from a very high-kill shelter in Roswell, NM where he was scheduled to be euthanized. From what you can tell, he's obviously had a very rough past. He's very scared and was completely shut down when he came to our rescue. He's slowly learned to trust us and has made some really good progress with accepting the fact that not all people are bad. John Wayne is so gentle and will let you pet him and kiss him'|he even walks pretty well on a leash! He gets along great with dogs (as long as they're nice to him) and he even likes cats! This boy needs a safe forever home and someone to show him ... (Read More)what unconditional love is! Our adoption process begins with you meeting John Wayne. Feel free to schedule a play date with him and your existing dog(s). After you fill out an application, we will verify your references and do a brief home inspection. If all goes well, we will deliver John Wayne to you for a small adoption fee. You will also have the option to purchase a large wire kennel for an additional fee. We then ask that you sign our adoption contract. We will do a follow-up visit approximately two weeks to one month after the adoption to ensure that John Wayne is adjusting well to his new home and that he is happy and healthy. We feel our adoption process is the best way to vet good owners and to guard against people seeking dogs for dog fighting, bait dogs, and/or dog sales. We only have our rescue dogs' best interest in mind and we do everything we can to insure that they go to the very best home and that it's the perfect fit. (Less)

    Lilly: Aussie/Heeler/Collie 1 1/2 yrs.. old, 40 lbs, housebroken. A good Samaritan saw a litter of puppies being dumped, luckily they were able to gather them up and take them home. It appeared that they had been poisoned. Four of the puppies died. The remaining 4 puppies didn't get very sick and we were able to save them. Lilly is the only one that has not found her forever home. She is very very shy and will need a lot of work, so we are also looking for a home with another dog and no small children.

PIease Read Before Adopting an Australian Shepherd in Colorado
    Australian Shepherd Dogs can make good pets in Colorado if they match your IifestyIe. The Australian Shepherd, or Aussie, is a playful breed that provides excellent companionship to active children. Aussies are smart, trainable, protective, and eager to please. Australian Shepherds are gentle with humans and aggressive when herding farm animals. Aussies are active even when indoors and do best with plenty of exercise in a large yard.

Australian Shepherd
lnteresting Australian Shepherd Trivia Low-Cost Colorado Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Australian Shepherds are not Australian; they were developed in the United States for herding livestock on American ranches. Aussies are often used by police for narcotics detection. Some Australian Shepherds are prized for their beautiful merle coloring, but the gene that causes this coloring also results in deafness or blindness.
