    Angie is a super friendly girl, and loves everyone. She is good with the dogs in her foster home, and the kitties too! Angie came into her first rescue pregnant and heartworm positive. After nursing nine puppies, and being the special girl Angie is, heartworm treatment was done. Angie came to HELP for cage rest and is now done with her medical hold. Angie is 4 years of age, DOB of 6-7-13, a Lab X shepherd, and maybe some Aussie or Husky as she has a bit of blue in each eye. She weighs 66.80 #'s of sweetness and loyalty. Although she has a partially torn off ear and is not especially photogenic, Angie is beautiful inside and out. She is ... (Read More)housetrained, kennel trained, and is well past the chewing stage. She would make a wonderful companion dog for almost any family. Angie is not much of a barker, and listens well. With a basic companion dog class, some lucky family would have a Best Friend for life. Angie is enjoying the life of being an inside girl, with good food, warmth in the winter, cool in the summer, and Love every day. Angie will make one lucky family or person very happy. (Less)

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)

    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.
