Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adult Men Only 
Personality: Very High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    8 month old, beautiful, very smart, playful and affectionate. Loves human contact. Has had obedience training. Learns very quickly with treats. Has been aggressive with me. I am the female in the house. Seems to be more submissive with men. I have 2 grandchildren, ages 2 and 6 months, and do not want to take any chances with their safety. I love this dog and it breaks my heart to have to find him another home. We got him at 11 weeks of age from Petland. He has never been mistreated in any way. My 25 year old son lives with me and is very attached to him, but as I said, I cannot feel comfortable with him around small children. I think he ... (Read More)would do better with adults only. Needs a lot of attention and exercise. Loves car rides and the outdoors. (Less)

Animal ID: 2837Addie (female)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    You won't find a dog happier than Addie. Just like her color she is one special pup. Addie is a beautiful 4 year old beagle mix weighing about 30lbs. Her future home should be able to provide the proper amount of mental and physical exercise that is important to keep Addie's mind and body in shape. Beagles naturally enjoy the company of other dogs and humans and nothing could be more true for Addie. She is loving, sweet, and always happy to see everyone, greeting them with a wagging tail. Addie does have some hunting instincts so caution should be taken with small, non-canine animals. A home without cats would be best as she will chase and ... (Read More)bark at them. Addie loves to go on walks and happily 'bays' when she sees a leash. Often, she finds a scent to follow and will take you on an adventure to find the critter that made it. She does display some signs of separation anxiety, but only when completely alone. She does very well kenneled with her foster sister and doesn't show separation anxiety if she is with another dog or human. She loves car rides, bathes well, and even loves to be in the water! She is good with children, incredibly tolerant, and always ready to join in on a game or adventure. Most of all Addie loves to cuddle. She is an under-the-blanket snuggler. She will greet you with a smile every time you come home, devoting herself to you with utmost companionship. (Less)

Health: Spayed 

    Luna Female 2 year old Aussie Beagle Mix Luna is a beautiful Aussie mix but takes after the beagle side of her family a she is small. Luna was raised with a family for almost two years. We do not know why her family surrendered her to the local vet and did not return for her. She is housebroken, good with other dogs and very sweet. Her foster mom has this to say about her: 'Luna has the brains of an Aussie and the energy of a beagle; she sits and lays down but has selective hearing so she probably would do best in a fenced yard. She's so curious, She is just too curious around cats and would do best in a home without them.She loves to play ... (Read More)with all kinds of dogs and children. She would do best as with another dog and with a family to play with her. She really loves all kinds of attention and has tons of energy. She needs walks to complete her potty training because she always wants to play in the yard. She's great in a crate and rarely makes a peep until it's time to come out. ' Her adoption fee is $295 and includes her spay, up-to-date on shots, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance.
