Rescue Me ID: 14-10-24-00813Smokie (male)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Desperate for perfect home for our adorable Border Collie Smokey. Due to health reasons we have had to relocate to a retirement community that does not allow dogs. It is with a broken heart that we have to reach out and find the best home possible. He is sweet and lovable, loves his people and dedicated. He is black/white, long hair, the only Australian Shepard part that shows up is in his legs and it is very slight. He must have lots of room to run and being a Border Collie could be trained to herd. He is showing signs of trying to herd us now. He would do better if he had a friend to play with. Due to health issues we have not been ... (Read More)able to socialize and train him properly so he has some bad manners. He just needs someone who can spend time with him and love him. He is free to the perfect home. All we ask for is a $40.00 reimbursement for his kennel. Please be prepared to answer questions about his living conditions and provide references. We would also like to meet you in person. We will post a photo later. Contact us at Salem, Or. (Less)

    Marley is a sweet girl. She was abused when I rescued her so she is slow to warm up to new people. She is not getting along with my other dog, so she needs to be in a one dog family. She loves playing in the river and toys. She has all her shots, is spayed, and is microchipped.

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-02-00431Ty (male)

Australian Shepherd    Age: Senior

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

    Ty is the sweetest gentleman dog, friendly with everyone. He figures out other dogs, accepting some and warning others if they get to be too much. According to his owner he loved their cat and would go look for her if they asked where she was. They also said he learned to play with toys by asking him to go get his 'kitty' and I tried that with a tiny pink pig toy and he did love it. He loves to be cuddled and petted. He will sleep in the bed with you if allowed. Otherwise he sleeps as close to you as he can possibly get, sometimes half way under the bed. While sleeping he will serenade you with assorted grunts, groans, snores, yawns, ... (Read More)grumbles, growls, yips, and sighs. When he sees the leash he goes crazy with excitement about the possibility of an outing. But when you try to walk him he winds himself all around the leash and you, because you are walking him. He settles down after a while. He loves to go for car rides. Period. Ty has hearing loss in one ear and vision loss in one eye but he does not let that stop him. Ty will make whoever decides to adopt him realize how much they need a companion like him, and how much he needs someone like them. He is an absolute jewel of an Aussie. Ty is not part of the ARPH program. All info is from an individual or group, not affiliated with ARPH, that is the caretaker of the dog. Anyone using this information is responsible for determining whether the information about these dogs is accurate. ARPH has no obligation, responsibility or liability with respect to the adoption and placement of the dog.He is being referred by ARPH as a service in the hope of aiding with placement.

Rescue Me ID: 14-07-29-00583Harley (male)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Personality: Low Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered 

    My name is Harley, and I will be eight (8) years old in August 2014. I have a warn and loyal personality once I get to know you. I am well housetrained, and would love a family that has time for me and a fenced yard. An adult home or a home with older children would be best When inside I am very quiet and love to beg for a treat with my eyes. When satisfied I will find a quiet place to lay for the evening. Although I spends my time now with three other dogs in a large enclosed area, I needs a home with one-on-one attention. I am a protector. I do not like people on bikes unless I know and trusts them. I could bite someone if I feel ... (Read More)threatened or provoked by our other dogs. I have not been socialized with other dogs besides his current pack, but would probably do well in a neutral zone such as a dog park or if closely supervised. I did respond well to a training collar with the vibration setting only. I needs a home where I can get the attention I deserve. I loves to go for walks on a leash or roam free where he can be supervised. I walk with a loose leash right by your side... I don't like the stray kitties, but I do fine with the chickens. If you might be my forever new family, Please email for an application, and tell us a little about the home you have for me, where you are located, and a phone number would also be nice....I am waiting. No adoption fee, but the Application, a great home is required.....This is a courtesy ad. (Less)

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.

Australian Shepherd
lnteresting Australian Shepherd Trivia Low-Cost Oregon 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. Aussies are often used by police for narcotics detection. Some Australian Shepherds are prized for their beautiful merle coloring, but the gene that causes this coloring also results in deafness or blindness.
