Rescue Me ID: 17-07-04-00448RANDY (male)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    RANDY was saved from one of the shelters we work with in Texas. He is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick-disease tested; Negative and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 7 June 2015. RANDY has been listed as an Australian Shepherd/Australian Kelpie. We have no way of knowing the true breed, it is up to you to decide what you think his breed/s is. It is important to note that RANDY is a high energy, intelligent, working breed dog and you really need to be experienced with this breed, or at least have done a lot of research, have support and confident you have the lifestyle to accommodate this ... (Read More)stunning boy. RANDY is very affectionate and loves to get cuddles and his belly rubbed and ear scratched. He loves toys and especially loves to chew on the cow hooves. He gets on great with other dogs of all sizes. We do NOT have cats at the rescue so are unable to say how he would get on with cats. RANDY is going to need a family that is used to high energy, smart dogs, preferably someone who is familiar with the Collie / Shepherd breed. Someone who understand that he will need training and guidance and learns that humans are in charge so that he doesn't get too much of a handful. He is going to need a very active family who can give him the lifestyle that he needs. Playing ball in the back-yard is not enough for this boy, he is going to need a lot of physical and mental exercise. Going on road trips, to new places, hikes and adventures and letting him explore the sights, smells and sounds the world has to offer will be to his and your benefit. He is going to need a family that understands the importance of basic and advanced training. We advise that families work on their own basic training so that boundaries and expectations can be set and personalities and body language learnt in the process, which will help form a much stronger bond. RANDY is living in the kennel building and uses the dog door to go outside into his run to do his business, he enjoys lying outside on nice days and is happy to chew on his bones when not having playtime. He will make a great family addition to an experienced family. He is fun, active and very loving and deserves a good family and home to call his own. RANDY is available for adoption from Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $500. This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food and anything else that is needed.

Rescue Me ID: 17-07-04-00443IAN (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 

    IAN was saved from one of the shelters we work with in Texas. He is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick-disease tested; Negative and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 6 October 2016. IAN has been listed as an Border Collie / Australian Shepherd. We have no way of knowing the true breed, it is up to you to decide what you think his breed/s is. IAN was an owner surrender with his brother and sister to the shelter in Texas. Their story is that the owner had the mother dog, who got stolen, he reported the theft to the police and when the police located the dog she was pregnant. She gave birth and ... (Read More)the owner kept three pups, 2 males and 1 female. He turned them into the shelter when they was around 8 months of age as he didn't have time for them. When IAN and his siblings arrived at the rescue they were extremely scared. The transport had said that they wouldn't come out of their crates at the stops and were just very fearful. Since being at the rescue they have started to warm up, it is just a matter of them building up confidence. Ian is the most confident of his siblings, but still is very wary, it is obvious he really wants to come up and get some love and affection, but he is not yet there in his confidence to do so. It really is just a matter of time of letting him see interaction with other dogs so that he can see that humans are safe. Each time I go into his kennel he will run out but come immediately back in, wagging his tail and inching closer each time. I do believe that in a safe, secure home environment with a family that has the time and patience to work with him and let him build up his trust in his own time, he will come round in a short period of time. He just needs to be able to do it in his own time and in his own way so that he isn't having anyone forced upon him. Needless to say he is not leash trained and when I took her to be neutered I had to carry him to and from the car and into the vets. He has never shown any kind of aggression, just fear and the staff at the vets said he was very sweet and was fine when they was handling him preparing her for surgery. He is located in the kennel building and does share a pen and run with his brother and is fine with other dogs. He does use the dog door to go out into the run to do his business, however, I do not know if he is house trained, but he is a smart boy and knows to go outside, so a little time teaching him to let you know he needs to go out is probably all he will need. IAN is a young boy and when he has gained confidence and can start enjoying life, he will need an active family. He is an intelligent dog and so along with lots of physical exercise he will need the same level of mental stimulation too. He would benefit from a family that is able to take him on lots of road trips and adventures on hikes, to the lake, the beach and anywhere he can enjoy and explore the sights, sounds and smells the world has to offer. He will need a family that understands the importance of training and we encourage all families to work on basic and advanced training as a family so that boundaries and expectations can be set and both Ian and his humans can learn each others body language and personalities and form a stronger bond and understanding of each other. Ian does need a special family with time, patience and understand to help him gain trust and confidence and who can be extra careful to make sure he can't run off or escape, however, when he has gained that trust I feel he will be a wonderful addition to any family with a very strong loving bond that will make all the extra effort so very much worth while. IAN is available for adoption from Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $500. This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food and anything else that is needed.

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-03-00336Oakley (male)

Australian Shepherd    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adult Women Only 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered 

     This animal is available to licensed rescue groups only.  Please do not enquire unless with a licensed rescue group. He's a sweet dog most of the time. However does have a problem with adult males if it's not my siblings or people he grew up around. He's honestly not good around strangers at all. Has become aggressive as he's gotten older. It got better for a while and has become a problem again. I have a one year old son and I'm just not willing to risk it anymore. I think with proper handeling and someone that knows how to train him he would be fine. I do love him and he really can be a very sweet lap dog if you let him.
