Rescue Me ID: 15-05-23-00149Bruce (male)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Bruce, who is a 5-year-old Australian Shepherd/Mastiff mix, was abandoned on the south side of Chicago. His family literally left him behind like an old piece of furniture. It is apparent that he was used as a fighting dog because he bares the scars. But, in spite of where he came from and what has been done to him, he has come out of it with a great temperament! He loves other dogs, kids, and adores women. He's such a nice boy! He is looking for his forever home!

Rescue Me ID: 15-05-22-00119Bandit (male)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    . Male Beagle/Aussie/Jack Russell mix. DOB 2/20/14 Approximate weight - 30lbs Bandit was abandoned in rural Kentucky during one of the coldest winters on record. He was lucky to have been found by a wonderful rescue angel that knew he deserved a much better life! Bandit is a happy little ball of energy. He is always super excited to see you... if you have been gone for hours, or you just let him in from the back yard after 5 minutes. He is attentive, and eager to please; a very quick learner. He can be left alone, out of his crate, for a few hours without him getting into anything he's not supposed to We have been working on training; he ... (Read More)is proficient with sit and lay down. He makes good eye contact waiting for your direction, and he waits patiently after his food is put down for his cue to chow down. Stay is a work in progress. He takes a little while to warm up to other dogs, and seems to be protective of his space. Having said that, he became fast friends with the resident pooch in his foster home, but it was not without the requisite barking, growling, posturing, and hair raising. That episode lasted for about 5 minutes before they were let loose in the back yard together to figure each other out. After about 10 minutes of testing each other's limits... they have been playing non-stop ever since. Having another dog in the home is very beneficial for him! His playmate is also young so his high level of energy is matched by hers. Bandit loves everyone, old and young. He loves getting attention from grown people, but also seems to love big hugs from small people. When you first meet him one of the first things you notice (after getting over his adorable little fuzzy face), is that he has some of the most gorgeous eyes ever... one is light blue, and the other is mostly brown, with some light blue at the top. Sometimes he gets his left lip rolled up near his gums like dogs do on occasion, which just makes him that much cuter! This little guy has Jack Russell and Aussie traits, but his unbridled love and excitement makes him more than worth it for the right home! Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash or check) and includes spay/neuter at our participating vets, immunizations/shots up to the point of adoption, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance.

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Well blue is a very love able dog he loves laying on the couch mostly on your lap. Very sweet dog!! I have a 5 year old grandson he has been around since birth he is protective of him. He has never bitten anyone but he will bark if he thinks your getting to close to him. If you swing him around in a circle holding his arms blue will come up and gently put his front pAws around his waist and pull him down. Funniest thing I have ever seen a dog do. He has been an inside dog since we got him as a puppy but I think he's bored and needs space to run. I know I will be heartbroken when he's adopted but I think it's best for all of us we don't have ... (Read More)the time to give him. He is a great watch dog he will let you know when someone new is walking by the house. He doesn't bark at the people he is familiar with unless they have a dog with them. He needs an owner that is home all day and we are not. I hope to find him a good home where he can run and be free. (Less)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    DOB 3/2/2013 Darling was abandoned at a high kill shelter in Alabama that we work closely with. We were able to get her out of the shelter and into an amazing foster home in Alabama where she is waiting for her trip to Illinois and learning about love. Her Alabama foster told us that she is very sweet with humans... she will lick you to death. She is learning to sit. She is learning to share her people... It's like she is starving for attention and afraid to be abandoned again. She is housebroken and loves everyone...adults and children. Her foster in Illinois, has found that she is extremely sweet! She loves other dogs and does well with ... (Read More)cats too! She is also wonderful with children of all ages. She loves to be with her foster mom and has made her way onto the foot of the bed...that's where she sleeps each night! She has fantastic house manners and is very eager to please. She responds to 'no' and 'down' and learns quickly. She would love to have someone that is home with her because she does not crate well, it makes her very nervous and crating is not an option. Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash or check) and includes spay/neuter at our participating vets, immunizations/shots up to the point of adoption, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogs@yahoo.com for an application or additional details. Please consider becoming a foster home while you search for your new best friend. We need foster homes - pounds are overflowing with puppies and adult dogs that are at-risk and need help. We can only rescue as many as we have foster home commitments. Fostering is a rewarding experience for your family. (Less)

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.

lnteresting Australian Shepherd Trivia Low-Cost Illinois 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. 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.
