Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Rory was born on November 4th, 2007 ready to take on the world. He may be a miniature Australian shepherd but don't let the mini part fool you. He has enough guts and personality to fill two Great Danes! Rory loves to play any way he can, wether it's fetch or tug of war, he even loves chasing water out of a sprinkler. He has been a loyal friend, watch dog and protector since the beginning. Part of being a protector is being selective, Rory likes to keep a small circle of humans in his pack. He may need a few meetings to warm up to someone new but once you're in, you have a side kick for life and he will give more affection than you ... (Read More)know what to do with! Like many Aussies, Rory requires a lot of exercise and loves having a job to do so he can focus his energy. He likes a grain free diet to keep his skin and coat healthy and loves to chew on treats that are good for his teeth. Rory is looking for a new forever home. He has a strong personality so he will fair better by himself, maybe one other dog. Please no children, cats or other small pets. He is very smart and eager to please and is ready to be your new best friend. And of corse he loves belly rubs! (Less)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This is Riley, she is almost 7 years old, and while she can be very sweet and cuddly, she has a history of aggressive behavior, and even biting when scared. She is not comfortable with new people and new situations, and can show her aggression out of fear. I am currently pregnant, and while I love her so much, I cannot be comfortable with her and our new baby. I'm looking for someone who is experienced with these issues and can give her a loving home with no children. If you have any questions, are interested, or know someone who might be , please call/text/email.

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adult Women Only 
Personality: Very High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Curly is a 9 mo. old intake male. Stunning in appearance. He is a very dominant dog. Unfortunately he is constantly at odds with our other dog (5yr. old spayed Aussie x Border Collie cross) who refuses to give up her alpha dog status. He can also be aggressive/protective toward other people and animals, but very devoted to his owner/family. Unfortunately, killing one of the family cats was the last straw for Curly! He MUST go. Curly is current on all his shots and heartworm/flea tick meds; vet records will be provided. If there is anything you can do for this fella, PLEASE contact me ASAP

Australian Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Must find a new loving home for our Australian Shepherd, Scout. He is very intelligent, trained to sit, give howdy, lay down, off, and walks well on a leash. Rescued him from the animal shelter at about 4 months old where he had been picked up wth a collar embedded deep in his neck and his mouth and throat so lacerated that the vet thought he might not live. He is probably 3 years old now, vaccines are current. Our problem: His herding instinct (like many Aussies) is very strong, and for some reason he feels threatened by small children. We have successfully taught our 7 yr old commands and actions to use in situations when the dog becomes ... (Read More)agressive toward him, but living in a neighborhood with small children around frequently just isn't the best environment for him considering his breed. We want to do the right thing for the dog AND the right thing for our neighbors. It breaks my heart to hve to find him a new home but, Scout desperately needs a home with no small children (he has been fine with age 10 and up) and some land where he can use up the energy of his herding dog breed constructively. He is such a loyal companion and very protective. I really don't want to give him away because he's a fabulous dog for an adult, he's affectionate, and so smart. He just needs to not be around small children because he will growl and nip, that just does work in a neighborhood. I'm afraid that if we do not find a new home for him very soon we are going to have to ... please help so I don't have to take him to the animal shelter! (Less)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    eight year old sweet Aussie is my boy. I also had his Father. He is the sweetest dog with adults, smart, full of energy, all he wants is a ball thrown to him and to be able to run. PJ is like a persona. You can take him just about anywhere. He just does not like a few little dogs. Everyone loves him when I take him out with me and he is so well behaved. I relocated to Charlotte for a job that requires a lot of travel. In addition, the HOA has kicked him out due to a mix up with a small, little dog! And, it is not fair to him that he is in a condo and he cannot run like he used to do at my old place. He loves me, but, he has been pretty ... (Read More)miserable. I am in serious need of a good home immediately for him. I have him boarded. I had a home for him, but they just backed out. Please help. Thank you. (Less)

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

    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] We are located in Concord, NC (near Charlotte, NC) and are willing to travel a reasonable distance to bring her to a new loving home or facility that will be able to help her! Callie is a 7 year old Australian Shepherd. We adopted her as a puppy. She has always been nervous around strangers but her nervousness has turned into some stranger aggression over the years. She is territorial with other dogs and protective over her owners. When boarded at a kennel, Callie has never bitten or been aggressive to workers but does exhibit cage aggression. Callie has never bitten anyone. We have two small children and have ... (Read More)decided it is best for all involved if we relocate Callie to a new home. Her new home needs to be free of children, have lots of opportunities for exercise, and an most importantly have an owner who will be patient in earning her trust and working with her issues. Callie's breed is a working dog so she does well when she feels she has a job to do. Callie has randomly occurring seizures. She will have a seizure once every 2-3 (+) months. She has been seen by a vet a couple years back and the vet did not see fit for medication since the seizures are not consistent. Callie has also had a benign growth removed twice from one of her paws. We HOPE you can help. This is sad for us but we know that it is for the best. We are trying to avoid bringing her back to a shelter for her health and to remove the risk of being euthanized. PLEASE HELP if you are able! (Less)
