    Luna is a beautiful Aussie mix, with one blue eye, but takes after the size of a beagle. Luna was raised with a family for almost two years. But, sadly her family surrendered her to the local vet. She is housebroken, good with other dogs and very sweet. She loves to run and play, so a fenced in yard would be perfect! Look at that face--irresistible! 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.

    DOB 1/2/14 Meet Wendy...an absolutely beautiful what we believe may be Corgi/Aussie mix. Well socialized, raised in a home with children and other dogs, she has a great all around personality. She was found in Kentucky and rescued by one of our wonderful 'sisters in rescue'. If she entered the local shelter, we knew she had little chance of making it out since there are SO MANY homeless puppies out there!. She contacted Casey's Safe Haven to see if we could accept her into our adoption program. Wendy is a strong little girl and is still a puppy, so she will need continued training and socialization in her new home.. Her adoption fee is ...

    Star is 7-10 years old, in good health and extremely loving. She weighs about 70 lbs and sometimes thinks she's a lap dog. She is house trained, loves sleeping on a garden table on our shaded patio and swimming in our ponds. On the negative side, she is dominate over others dogs, jumps on people when excited/attention starved, and freighted of loud noises such as thunder, fireworks and gunshots. We adopted her five years ago and believe she may have abused at some point in her life because she cowers when afraid or being spoken to harshly. We hate to see Star go, but she needs space to run and we're moving due to a change in jobs and do ... (Read More)not believe she would fair well in a town house in a big city. Would prefer Star going to a farm or home with lots of space, but a nice fenced yard with a loving family would be good too. (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.

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. Australian Shepherds are descended from Spanish dogs that were used for herding Merino sheep. 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.
