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.

Rescue Me ID: 14-08-31-00405Sharp (male)

Australian Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

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

    Sharp is a happy, fun dog who loves to play fetch and run, but honestly, he needs a job! He is vigilant and would make an excellent watch dog. He needs a large property to run and patrol. He is smart, learns quickly, comes to a whistle and is social with anyone he considers part of his pack. He may snap if he is teased or someone pulled on his ears so I put that he is not good with kids, but truthfully, he has been around my grandchildren with no problems at all. I'm looking for the right situation for him with a person who can take a firm hand with him, give him plenty of exercise and understand that although sweet and loving with ... (Read More)his family, he is aggressive and must be controlled around other dogs. Although I have a good sized fenced yard, it's just not enough. He needs acreage and he really needs a job. If you have a garden you want to keep the deer out of, he would do the job for you! Why give away such a great dog? He barks when no one is home to tell him to be quiet. Our neighbors have complained and now we have had a warning from the animal control people. He is just trying to protect his territory, following his instincts, but because we live in a suburban area, he hears sounds from around us that set him off. Once he starts barking he just keeps barking. When we are home, he is quiet and doesn't even bark when someone comes to the door. A place in the country with no close neighbors and he wouldn't have a problem at all because he would get used to the sounds and eventually only bark when something or someone is really around. Please contact me if you are interested. We are not in a hurry and will only give him up to a situation that is better for him. He's a really great dog and deserves to have a situation that is good for him. (Less)

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.

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.

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. Aussies can be trained to perform tricks. 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.
