Rescue Me ID: 15-01-18-00472Bob (male)

Australian Shepherd    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Bob is typical of his breed, in that he's a bright, high-energy, loving dog. He is well trained using a pinch collar to heel, sit, stay, leave it, drop it, stop, etc. Sadly, he has had trouble getting along with our infant son -- having nipped him a half dozen times. Bob would excel in a home without infants, and with active people who like long walks and can take him to the dog park often. He gets along well with other dogs (he lived for several years with a dachshund-beagle mix). He has never lived with a cat, but has gotten along fine with them during visits. He does have chronic renal failure, which we are successfully controlling with ... (Read More)prescription dog food and medications. After a medical scare last year, Bob is back to being the playful, energetic dog he's always been. (Less)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    This cute pup is a shelter favorite. We're not sure what he was crossed with, but his sister looked more pitbull. The natural docked tail suggests some aussie, perhaps? Whatever he is, he is cute and sweet, good with other dogs, cats, kids and adults. The adoption fee is $50 for dogs and includes vaccination (one shot of 5 way for adult dogs and two shots of 5 way two weeks apart for puppies as well as deworming) as well as microchipping, which is now mandatory by state law. On dogs we have spayed/neutered, we ask for the spay/neuter fee to be covered as well. We get a shelter rate for spay/neuter, so our rates are $55-70 for male dogs ...

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Say hi to Monkey! He is approximately 1 year old and is believed to be a miniature/toy Australian Shepherd or Border Collie mix weighing in at 18 lbs. He is very friendly and happy and gets along with other dogs. He plays like a little pony- bucking and bouncing around :) He would do best in a home with a family who has time to provide Monkey a lot of mental and physical stimulation. He doesn't like to be crated and would do best where someone is home with him a lot. He is a true snuggle bug and loves to jump in your lap, give you kisses and let you rub his tummy. He doesn't care too much about toys- mainly just hugs and kisses. ... (Read More)Monkey's adoption fee of $325 helps cover the cost of his vetting. If you are interested in adopting, please complete an adoption application, which can be found on our website at under the 'Adoption Process' tab. All dogs are spayed/neutered, current on vaccines, heartworm tested ( as appropriate), fecal tested, and microchipped. (Less)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    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. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email Kathy for an application at (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting an Australian Shepherd in Illinois
    Australian Shepherd Dogs can make good pets in Illinois 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 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. Some Australian Shepherds are prized for their beautiful merle coloring, but the gene that causes this coloring also results in deafness or blindness.
