Rescue Me ID: 17-05-25-00217Duffy (male)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

    Welcome to Idaho, Duffy! We're so happy to meet you. Duffy is an approximately 9 month old male puppy, who also happens to be fully deaf. He was transferred to us from Utah, where he had previously lived with a foster/trainer who works with a shelter there. Duffy is fully vetted and ready for his forever home. Read on for more information from his former foster dad: 'Here's just some key observations I made during my time with Duffy that will hopefully allow for a smooth transition into a rescue center/forever home. Duffy is fully housebroken...if he's let out to relieve himself. He likes to be watched when he does his business so he knows ... (Read More)he's safe. We have been working on crate training as well, and he loves the comfort of his crate at night (I leave it open but he still chooses to sleep in it where he has his own space). I leave him free to roam the house during the day and he has not had any accidents in recent weeks. His powerful nose has led him into the garbage on more than one occasion, but a stern hand signal has showed him right from wrong. We have been hiking and going to the dog park almost every day, he is great off-leash and would rather find himself next to you than minding the other dogs. Duffy highly enjoys the company of other dogs, and I would recommend going into a home that has dogs -- he is very anxious when left alone and tends to become destructive. I have found that Duffy absolutely loves children and kids. Also, please be CAUTIOUS: Duffy loves to chase moving cars and will not hesitate to run into the road. I've found it quite difficult to take him on leash walks through the neighborhood. In the right environment -- dog park, hiking trail, open field -- he is completely fine on/off leash. We have been training hand signals and Duffy is responding well to the positive reinforcement. A simple thumbs up is *good boy* and a strong pointing index finger is *no - bad dog* A finger pointing to your nose is a command I like to call *Look at me* When I was training my first deaf dog, this was fundamental in ensuring her safety and allowing her to be off leash. When this is trained, the dog will respond by stopping everything they're doing and making eye contact with you to receive further instruction. After consistent training, it will become habit for the dog to always check in and make eye contact. P.S. Duffy loves to snuggle.' Duffy was previously surrendered to that shelter several times for not doing well with any small animals or with young children. He likes to herd and would do better in a home with older kids and with dogs his own size. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting an Australian Shepherd in Idaho
    Australian Shepherd Dogs can make good pets in Idaho 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.

lnteresting Australian Shepherd Trivia Low-Cost Idaho Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Australian Shepherds are not Australian; they were developed in the United States for herding livestock on American ranches. Aussies can be trained to perform tricks. Some Australian Shepherds are prized for their beautiful merle coloring, but the gene that causes this coloring also results in deafness or blindness.
