Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sundance came from a hoarder situation and has been learning how to trust people again. She is doing amazing and is a very sweet girl. We are not sure what kind of mix she is but think there is some Aussie there, we just know she's cute as pie. She has a sister that is very bonded to her but we are teaching them to be away from each other slowly. They are all they had to rely on in their scary world before rescue. They are scared but still want love and attention. They follow their foster mom around and give kisses when called for treats. This pup will be a forever loyal companion for someone willing to take it slow. Her sister's name is ... (Read More)Cassidy and they don't look anything alike. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-23-00271AVA (female)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Ava is roughly 2 years old and a little shy but she loves loves loves once she trusts you. She is good with kids, cats, and dogs. She is about 50 pounds and we are not quite sure what her breed is, but she looks border collie with some shepherd and/or cattle dog or Australian shepherd mixed in. Ava was left in the desert and then saved from the shelter, but her behavior in her foster homes indicates she is well-behaved, doesn't beg, house-trained, and crate-trained. She is a little timid around men initially, but warms up fairly quickly. She will come when called and wag her tail. She is waiting for you to adopt her into your home! Ava is ...

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

Australian Shepherd    Age: Adult

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

    Digger is a great dog but unfortunately for us the fit in our family is not right. He would prefer to be in an only pet home with an active family with older or no kids. We have had him since he was a puppy but since our family dynamics have changed we feel he is no longer happy here. He is pure bred mini Aussie but no papers, up to date on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped. He loves the water, car rides and fetch is his absolute favorite activity. Digger would do great with someone that has lots of time to devote to him and that would love to take him everywhere. He is not without his faults and will offer all those details to ... (Read More)interested parties. His rehoming fee is very negotiable to the right home and a great home is priority to us. He can be nippy when you try to make him do something. He has bit kids that run from him or when protecting our kids. He sometimes will potty inside if not paid attention to but this started when my youngest son got his dog. He hates cats and will chase. He is actually a pretty good dog but we don't have the skills or time to work out his problems and when my kids have friends over so much I worry about him biting when kiddos are playing. I am confident that in the right home, these issues will go away. I don't feel like he is happy here and would love for him to go where he gets all the attention he needs. It would be perfect for him to go to someone that knows the breed and can put some training into him. He is so smart and really does love people. He's fine with other dogs socially as well but doesn't get along all the time with our other 2. Hope this info helps. Let me know if you have any other questions or want to meet him. (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!

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