Animal ID: 1465River (male)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    River just completed his basic obedience training at Applejacks in Charlotte Hall, Md. He is an aussie border collie mix and is between 1 and 2 years of age and 43 lbs. He is crate trained, house trained and up to date on all his shots and neutered. He is also negative for heartworm and on preventative for that and fleas and ticks. He has not been around kids younger than 10 so would need to meet any young children before being approved for a home with them. He also has not been cat tested but the rescue is recommending a home without cats for him since we are unsure what his reaction would be. River needs a family that will not only give ... (Read More)him a loving home but will continue his training. He would love to pursue agility, other dog sports or herding. He is a high Energy boy who needs a job. He can jump very high so a 6' fence is highly recommend. River would do best in a home with older children since he is high energy and could knock over a younger toddler. River is super friendly just has a lot of puppy in him. Loves chew toys, balls and bones are his favorite especially filled with peanut butter. He will jump up on you in his excitement, but he knows all his commands, he will just need someone who will continue his training. If adopted in the Southern Maryland area, Applejacks has offered 4 free lessons to new owner. If you are interested in adopting River please fill out an application at His adoption fee is $295 and all proceeds from his adoption go towards future rescues. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-02-13-00179Griffon (male)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    GRIFFON'S 'MUST HAVES' 1. physical fenced yard where he will have room to run around and explore. He can jump fairly high so it should be at least 4 foot tall. 2. young, playful buddy in the house. Griffon gets along with almost every dog that he encounters but with his energy level, he can overwhelm some dogs. Size and gender do not matter...he will play with any dog, anytime. 3. a family/person willing to walk/run him at least twice a day for at least 1.5 to 2 miles each time. He would be a great runner's dog but would need more leash training. 4. older children (8+) or no children in the house. When Griffon gets really ... (Read More)excited, he will jump up and on people and he will use his mouth when playing. Our process: 1. application 2. vet reference check 3. home visit 4. meet the dog (this often is at the same time as the home visit) 5. trial period if all are in agreement and if potential adopter is close enough 6. formal adoption if trial period is successful Application link is: Griffon is approximately 20 months old and is in the 30 to 35 pound range. He is medium to high energy and a low to medium shedding dog that will need regular grooming to keep the hair out of his face/eyes. He is a strong, muscular springy dog that loves to play. Mix is unknown but he is 'party' colored - gray, black, white, caramel brown colors. He has coarse hair in some areas like a terrier, and really soft, thick fur in other areas. Griffon is house-broken and crate-trained and currently needs to be crated when no one is home or he will chew on inappropriate things. He is a very friendly boy and loves to cuddle during his down times. Griffon is not good with kitties but is okay with all sizes of dogs. His leash skills are pretty good and he knows several basic commands. He is up to date on vaccinations (combo and Rabies), is micro-chipped, neutered and on monthly heart worm aand flea/tick preventatives. He is heart worm negative. If Griffon doesn't get enough exercise/activity, he may chew or dig when bored. Griffon's adoption fee will be $350 which will go towards his vetting costs and transport costs. You can check out his post on Adopt a Pet for more pictures. I am looking to place Griffon within a 3 hour radius of Washington, DC. (Less)

Australian Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered 

    Gunner is an AS/Blue Healer mix and is high energy and was meant to go to a farm but ended up at our house the last 2 years. He needs the great outdoors a large yard and a lot of attention (a job to do). We don't have enough time or energy at this stage of our lives to keep him. He's so pretty and protective but it's not fair on him and we want him to have a good life!

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. Some Australian Shepherds are prized for their beautiful merle coloring, but the gene that causes this coloring also results in deafness or blindness.
