Australian Shepherd    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    This is Nala she is gorgeous yet aggressive dog. She is so loving to the people she knows. She shows her love by the wiggle of her butt. She has a history of lunging at cats and dogs. She is a hardworker though and with a home that is able to get in touch with a behaviorist to be educated and supported as she is worked through he aggressive issues. I wish with all my heart that I had the money and time to take care of her need. She will definitely need to see a behaviorist so I am looking for a special home that can give her the help I so desperately wish I could supply her with. She is worth the cost, she's very intelligent and knows many ... (Read More)tricks along with being placement trained. If you have an questions please feel free to call at any time! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-11-17-00016Ginger (female)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Very smart, loyal dog. She's well-trained and very healthy. She can be aggressive toward other dogs, especially ones close to her size, as well as kids. Since she's 10 yrs old and has the aggressive streak, we have been having difficulty finding a home for her. The vet has recommended euthanasia since there are other dogs as well as two young kids in the home now. We are really trying to avoid that since she is so healthy.

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-01-00625Olaf (male)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 

    *Not my dog but I can connect you with owners.* Currently in Paxton, IL but transport can likely be arranged. Olaf is 10-12 month(based on what I was told his age was when he came here) old deaf Aussie mix(suppose to be w husky/lab but I'm not sure about it because of his size). He is housebroken,crate trained,knows a few hand signals,ok off leash once he trained to his boundaries,good with other dogs(male or female) as long as they are tolerant of his play level/herding instinct, good with kids.. he is great w my 3 year old granddaughter who lives w me BUT she knows not to grab at dogs and she understands she can't startle him so would say ... (Read More)home with older kids would be best unless toddler is well behaved. Honestly at times he acts like he may have been abused early in life as he will sometimes cower from you. He loves to play with balls. Olaf currently lives with another dog and enjoys sleeping with his canine pal. Emily (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 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.
