Personality: Very High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    Extremely beautiful 3 year old Australian Sheppard and Husky mix (Husky was not a choice from the drop down menu so I chose unknown but she is part Husky). Takes her a few minutes with new people but then she loves you quickly and covers you in kisses! She is a great dog however she is very aggressive with other dogs. Was not at first but was bitten once as a puppy and now does not like other dogs at all. Blue is very high energy and needs a lot of room to run. Fenced in yard preferable. I simply do not have the room for her run. Vet told me that lack of exercise is also showing out as aggressive behavior. Good home only. Serious inquires ... (Read More)only! (Less)

Animal ID: 5954Nubbs (female)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Nubbs! Sadly, this sweet and smart girl found her way to a shelter in South Carolina. OPH scooped her up and she is ready for her forever home. She is a petite girl around 40-50lbs thought to be a Retriever/Australian Shepherd Mix. She is spayed, up-to-date on shots, and fostered in Sykesville, MD. What we know about Nubbs: *A great age - she is about 4 years old *Crate trained - she is quiet in her crate *Good house manners - house trained and just wants to be near you *Intelligent - walks well on leash, knows sit and down *Great for adults - kids are loud and a little scary *Excited about car rides - hops right in the car and ... (Read More)gets comfy *Excellent pup for a low to medium energy single person, couple, or family with older children *Loyal and Eager to Please - She bonds very quickly to her family and just wants to be near you *Dog friendly - Currently fostered with other dogs. Prefers low-key submissive dogs as friends. *Cat untested - she isn't much of a chaser and would likely do fine with a cat **NOT recommended for families that live in apartments Note: Nubbs came to OPH worried about strangers. She continues to take some time to warm up. Once she knows you, she is in love. In her foster home, she loves being lazy, enjoys time in the backyard, and loves walks. She is working on building self confidence and would love an adopter to continue working with her on this. A little pack leadership and love will ensure a happy, long life together. We highly suggest additional training. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting an Australian Shepherd in Maryland
    Australian Shepherd Dogs can make good pets in Maryland 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 Maryland 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. 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.
