Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Bindi was found in a swamp in SC-- I guess she was set out for crocodile food. Poor baby girl, that must have been very scary. She was rescued, transported to NC and ended up with us because we had room to take her in. Now the fun part of her life can start. Bindi is approx. . 8 weeks old and a Lab/Aussie mix. She has the shorter hair of the lab though and the cutest ears. Fenced in yard required. We think she might be around 50 pounds or so when grown. Vet reference or home visit will be conducted before application can be approved.

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-06-00280Taji (male)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Hello! This is Taji, an Aussie/Boarder Collie mix. I've been fostering him for the last few months, and he's an absolute joy. I'm only interested in re-homing him to the perfect home. This dog needs a job, and ideally he finds someone who's interested in training him to be a livestock hearding or guard dog, as he has it in his blood. He will only be given to someone with a farm/property with room to roam, as has been raised around livestock (he's getting acquainted with chickens, currently will not attack unless left unattended, and I'm convinced with further training he would be able to be around them without supervision.) He's very ... (Read More)responsive and smart, and extremely loyal and fairly protective. He's good around other animals, very submissive to all dogs, but is uncertain about children. Again, I'm sure with the right exposure he'd be fine, though I wouldn't want to give him to a family with small kids. He has been abused in the past, and is very sheepish and vocal about negative reinforcement, though responds well with positive feedback. He does dig in our small yard when left unattended, which is another reason room for him to roam is important. He is great off leash, and is a wonderful jogging/hiking buddy. If you're interested in meeting him, I'd love to come bring him to you to see your property and housing set up. This dog deserves the best home, and again, I'm only going to pass him off if the situation is better for him than the one he is currently in. Right now, he gets a lot of attention and comes to work with me, but it would be ideal for him to be used for what he is made for (i.e.; livestock/the farm life.) (Less)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Hey my name is Brody. I am a 1 year old pit bull and australian shepherd mix. I am very smart, house and crate trained. I have a lot of energy and my owner has gotten a very busy work schedule and doesn't have the time to devote to me that I deserve. I have also recently developed a food/toy aggression so it would probably be best if I was an only dog. My owner guesses that I am about 65 lbs. As you can see I have the markings of an Aussie, but the build of a pit bull (I am short and stocky and very strong). One blue eye and one brown.

Australian Shepherd    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Pep is a gorgeous, 6-8 year old, male Aussie. He was owner surrender to Rowan County Animal Control because he was getting older, and he had some benign tumors that needed to be removed. He was pulled by the Halfway House on his last day before he was euthanized. The Halfway House Rescue had all of his tumors removed, and all of them are benign, and are gone! He was been groomed, and is all ready for his forever home. He is fully vetted, neutered, and HW negative. He absolutely loves kitties, and will snuggle up with them for a good nap. Pep has a tendency to ignore other dogs, and would definitely do best in a home with no dogs or calmer ... (Read More)dogs, because he is very, very calm. He would not do well in a home with a wild puppy or younger dog. He is good on a leash, and he really prefers to sleep in the bed with his humans... but a nice fluffy dog bed will do (he guesses). Pep is such a great dog, and he is so deserving of a loving home. He is house trained, crate trained, snuggle trained, and ready for his new forever. ABOUT THE HALFWAY HOUSE FOR ANIMALS OF NC: We are a foster based rescue out of Salisbury, NC that predominately pulls animals on their last day before euthanasia from Rowan County Animal Control. Each dog is/will be fully vetted, UTD on shots, spayed/neutered and ready to be incorporated into a new home. Adopters will be subject to an application, a home visit (local) or virtual visit (out-of-state), an adoption fee, personal and vet references, and a short phone interview. Please inquire by email to put in an application for our sweethearts today! Thank you for taking the time to read about our dogs and rescue! (Less)

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

Australian Shepherd
lnteresting Australian Shepherd Trivia Low-Cost North Carolina 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. Some Australian Shepherds are prized for their beautiful merle coloring, but the gene that causes this coloring also results in deafness or blindness.
