Rescue Me ID: 14-07-19-00243Cooper (male)

Australian Shepherd    Age: Adult

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

    Cooper is a wonderful family dog, but needs more exercise more than we can give him right now. He turned 9 in April and is still very energetic and social. He is wonderful with our two kids (ages 1 and 3) and very good around other dogs. We recently moved to a house with a much smaller yard, and he is not able to get out and run like he did in our old yard. Cooper's ideal family would have a medium-large sized fenced in yard and have the ability to give him some form of exercise (take him running/throw the ball) at least a few times a week. If you can do that, Cooper is a wonderful dog!

Animal ID: ?Daisy (female)

Australian Shepherd    Age: Senior

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

    Daisy is a good dog. Once we had our first child five years ago, Daisy started chewing on her back legs. We tried medications but to no avail. We were recently out of the country for four months and had a housesitter, and Daisy was just fine. We came back she started chewing on her leg again. The vet said it's most likely anxiety caused from the youngest child. So we are trying to find her a good home so she doesn't have to spend the rest of her life with the cone on her head.

Rescue Me ID: 14-05-23-00378Ryder (male)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected, Fearful/Anxious 

    One of my daughters got Ryder off of a rescue site about four years ago. He immediately adopted the white/blond border collie in the picture -- inseparable. He was kind to all of their family/kids but obviously had come from some kind of neglect so he just didn't get close to the family. He was gentle and kind, never bites or anything, but just stayed with Tanner all the time. I (mom) had a farm and took him and he was great where he had land and three other dog friends. He is protective but never bit anyone and got along with all animals that came and went from our home. I do believe he would chase a cat, though. I now live in a ... (Read More)subdivision. Ryder took to me like a bee to honey -- older woman, living alone. Since we've become so close within the last three years, he has grown more protective of me. If he meets another male dog that is semi-aggressive like him, they will sometimes get into a little rile. This only started once last July but I've noticed that on the trails he has sometimes not been happy to meet another male dog. But, he has improved so much. He has frightened a few people when they have come to my door or car, unexpectedly. He is protective of the one he loves. He is healthy and so incredibly sweet and probably about six years old. I've had dogs and horses all of my life and I've never had to try to give one up. But, for the sake of where I now have to live, keeping him on a leash (and he does great on a leash) and having such a small space for him with so many grandchildren visiting, etc., it's just a bit much. Incidentally, he loves children. I do not know his history but obviously if he is semi-aggressive now and then when he meets another dog or is surprised by a stranger, he went through something as a youngster or wouldn't have been put into an online rescue shelter so early in his life. If only he could talk, huh? I will keep him and just be extremely careful unless I can find someone else for him to love (he loves one person at a time, and that's all) and protect. He's an amazing friend and listens well. This is a first for me and it's already breaking my heart. All this dog needs is a more quiet environment and love. He would lie on your lap forever and just smile at you if he had his way. And yet, he love to take long walks. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-04-16-00437Fin (male)

Australian Shepherd    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adult Women Only 
Personality: Very High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected,
 Aggressive, Fearful/Anxious 

    Fin is an 18 month old male miniature Australian Shepherd. He was kept on a chain in a yard for the first 6 months of his life. When he became tangled in the chain and broke his leg, the owner took him to the vet to be euthanized. The Vet convinced the owner to sign the dog over to them, which he did. They treated his broken leg and put him in a foster home. She was unable to keep him because he was very aggressive towards her adult son when he would visit. She came to me for help. I agreed to take him in until I could find the perfect home for him. He has made amazing progress. He can be off leash and comes on command. He knows ... (Read More)sit, stay, leave it, and is crate trained. He needs to be crated when left unsupervised. He is incredibly smart, and finds numerous ways to keep himself occupied, usually making quite a mess! Fin is a very high energy dog who loves the outdoors, going for walks, playtime, and when relaxing indoors he is very affectionate. He is a little clown, who loves being silly. Fin needs a home with adults only. He needs a fair amount of time to learn to trust, but he can and does accept new people as long as they are quiet and gentle mannered. He currently resides with 4 other dogs however, he only gets along with one of them. I recommend he go to a home with no other dogs. He also shares his home with 3 cats. He loves to chase them but loses interest quickly. If you think this boy may be for you, send me an email and we can exchange numbers then. (Less)
