Rescue Me ID: 15-03-25-00140Tiller (male)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Tiller is primarily Aussi but may have a bit or border. He is such a lovely boy weighing 48 pounds with gentle paws. He is a bit uncomfortable on hard floors- as he didn't spend much time in the home. He was gotten for the purpose of being a working dog- however, he really doesn't like the work- perhaps the cattle just a bit too big for him! He much prefers a family lifestyle with children. He gets along with other dogs. He may need some potty scheduling time. He is crate trained. This young boy will make an awesome family member to a family willing to give him lots of cuddle, scratch and tickle time as well as car rides! Tiller is in ... (Read More)foster; contact (Less)

Animal ID: 0230Rusty (male)

Australian Shepherd    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered 

    Rusty is an 8-10 8 year old, red -tri He is neutered, almost 60 lbs, UTD. Good with older kids/teenagers and adults and is housebroken and crate trained. Crating him can trigger anxiety as it was used for punishment by previous owner. He has full house access, and is not destructive. He is okay on leash, needs some work and is good in the car. Health issues: Lenticular sclerosis or a blue tint discoloration to his Pupil which is common in dogs over the age of 8. He also (DLE) Discoid Lupus Erythematosus or Nasal Solar Dermatitis. He was given Prednisone for this and it did not work, so we are going to try an MSM on his nose. It has ... (Read More)healed up since we started him on Coconut oil, but he will need to have it protected in sunlight. He also has Broken Canines and worn teeth from chewing through a Chain Link fence as well as a sore on his back left foot that the Vet and I think is a injury. Personality/Bio: Rusty is a very Sweet boy, who loves attention and will cuddle for extended periods of time. He is a Confident Male so he has to be watched around other dogs as he will 'stand up on them' in challenge. It isn't aggression, but another 'Confident' dog may dislike this behavior. He was taught to put his paws on you in treating and will jump at your hand when he thinks you have food or a treat. I think his treats were held up in the air and he had to jump to get them. There are years of very poor behavior training that we are trying to undo. Rusty lacks impulse control when it comes to food, and did not know how to play 'normally'. I cannot stress how loving of a guy he is. He loves to lay next to you and be petted. He soaks up attention, and over all is very quite, rarely barks, and does not seem to react to skateboarders or other distractions that send my other Aussies into alert. He will respond when another dog is barking, but only to see for himself what is going on. Rusty would make a wonderful pet for an older or retired family that is looking for a fairly laid back Aussie with daily walks and a little play I can see his energy level easily increasing if someone were more active with him. He needs someone that will be home with him the majority of time, or take him with them. He loves attention but will just 'hang out' if you are busy, and as a typical Aussie, will follow you around to be in the same room or area you are. He tries very hard to learn what you want from him, but when it comes to food or treats he can be very intense. He is not food aggressive, you can pet him while he is eating and even take food out of his mouth, he is just very food driven. Rusty will not self regulate with food, he will eat until he makes himself sick, so he will need 3 structured small meals a day. If he eats more than a 1/2 cup of food at a time, he will regurgitate it an hour or so afterwards. He will need work on slowing down when he eats to help with this issue If you would like to fill out an application go to and click the 'need furever homes' link at the top of the page. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-24-00359Digger (male)

Australian Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Digger is a 4.5yr old miniature Aussie purebred. He LOVES to play ball and play in the water. He has recently decided to not get along with the other 2 female dogs in the home and has shown some aggression at times. We feel like he would be best as the only pet in the home and to be with someone who has lots of time to spend with him playing ball and taking him to the lake. He is microchipped and current on vaccinations except he does need rabies this month. If this guy sounds like the dog for you, get in touch with us today. Adoption fee is negotiable to the right home/situation.

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-09-00270sheila (female)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Adult Women Only 
Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Needs Vaccinations, Aggressive,

    We have been homeless for over a month and it has been very hard on her. She is becoming aggressively protective of me, our stuff and our other dog. She is very sweet with us. She will need someone strong, not afraid if her and patient while she bonds with them. She is VERY smart and loyal. We can't get in to an apartment with her and have waited as long as possible to take one, hoping we would find one that accepts dogs. We can't wait anymore but want a wonderful life for our Sheila.

Australian Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

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

    Wolfy is a gorgeous and amazing dog. He is super loyal and protective of house and family. He loves our young children and will play fetch for hours. He is a typical high energy Shepard. He needs to run and play. Will walk off leash and whilst running forward and back will always stay close. He has a typical trait which is that he likes to nip and herd at times. Not bite definitely not attack. I think he gets nervous. I feel like we can not give him the energy he needs and that he gets nervous when we are away. He needs a home with a big yard and a ton of play time. He was posted before and we couldn't come to terms with letting him go. We ... (Read More)are ready if the right home is out there. I would love to talk in depth about Wolfy. Thank you!! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-02-25-00346Roscoe (male)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs 
Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Vaccinations Current, Aggressive, Fearful/Anxious 

    Roscoe is an Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler and is a loyal, brave, hardworking, herding dog. One of the most intelligent breeds, he is not the kind of dog to sit around the living room all day or live happily in the backyard with only a 15-minute walk. He needs much more exercise than that and something to occupy his mind daily or he will become bored, leading to serious behavior problems. He needs lots of action in its life and will do best with a job. This alert dog is excellent in the obedience ring and will excel in agility and herding trials. Can be obedience trained to a very high level. Protective, he makes an excellent guard dog. ... (Read More)He is absolutely loyal and obedient to its master. Roscoe is aggressive towards people and dogs he doesn't know. His dominance level is high. If you can teach Roscoe that you are alpha and you will not tolerate him fighting with other dogs, he will be a great dog. He is good and trustworthy with our children but will nip at people's heels in an attempt to herd them. This breed is very easy to train. Problems have arisen because we are not able to provide him with the proper amount of exercise. This breed does best with a job to do. If you do not have time to extensively work with and exercise this dog, or do not fully understand canine instincts and their need to have leadership, this is not the breed for you. (Less)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Senior

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

    At first sight I can be a bit intimidating but if you have a little patience and let us get to know each other then I promise I can be your best friend ! I have typical Chow Chow characteristics of loyalty to my own family and bond tightly to my master. I know many commands and just want to please. I will protect your property. I do not like strangers. I will need an owner who will make sure that strangers don't have access to me. The shelter is stressful to me because all these strangers keep coming around. I want to find a quiet home away from folks I don't know and trust. I am housetrained, microchipped and know many tricks. My owner was ... (Read More)in the military and never returned for me.... I might be ok with an older submissive female but I think I would be happiest as the only dog. My birthday is 2/26/05 and I have been at the shelter in Prineville for almost 3 years! I have a friend who comes and walks me, I did not see her for a very long time due to family things but she is back and I remembered her! I am so happy she is back, she brings me treats! I love riding in the car, I am a very loving dog and need the right owner. I have a very thick coat, in the summer the shelter gave me a hair cut so now its growing back, I do get brushed but I have so much hair I think I am going to a groomer and you will see how beautiful I am. Please call the Humane Society of the Ochocos at 541 447 7178 to find out more about me...I am getting older and want to live the rest of my life in a loving home...please help me! love, Bandit...oh yes I will steal your heart!
