    Pinto is a sweet boy that is about 8mths-1yo. He was a stray in a neighborhood & was getting treated badly. A lady took him in, but he was getting out of her fence so she had to chain him up. I took him in to get him off chain & find a good home to run & play. The adoption fee covers him getting neutered & rabies shot. Pinto is a sweet boy that loves to be brushed & loved on. He is laid back & does good on leash.

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-08-00016Milo (male)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    We are looking to find a new home for our mini Border Collie, Milo. He is a sweet boy, just 3 years old but his nature is to round up the children by nipping when they run and has shown signs of food aggression but only toward the kids. Milo is a whopping 24 pounds, has completed level 1 obedience training, neutered, has a PetLink chip implant, and we just updated all his vaccinations last month. I hate to let him go but I know he'd be better off in a home without little kids.

Australian Shepherd    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Sunny(female 4 yrs) and Jordan(male 8yrs solid black ear on his right side) blue Merle's and bonded pair. They came to ASF because their mama had to go into assisted living and could not take them. Both spayed/neutered, UTD, & Heartworm negative. Both very affectionate and loving dogs...when they want to snuggle they will both asked permission first before jumping up on the couch to cuddle(most of the time). Then it's a race to see who can snuggle first. Both potty trained and walk well on the leash. Can really jump so a privacy fenced in yard would work best. I took them to a restaurant and sat outside, they both did great. Good with ... (Read More)other dogs was told they are good with cats but have not experienced it personally. They both just want to be near their people so they would do well as indoor dogs and with someone who is home more than not. They also have allergies but is easily managed Jordan takes a few minutes to warm up but when he does just wants to be close to you and is very affectionate. Sunny loves to cuddle right into your chest and give you hugs. Jordan may be 8 but you wouldn't know it looks and acts younger. They are both two of the sweetest well behaved dogs as well as smart. Would do best with older children. These two deserve a forever home as gentle and loving as they are. They both really love to get hugs and kisses. If you are interested in adopting these pups please fill out our adoption application: Adoption fee is $400 for the pair. All adoption fees are used for future rescue efforts. (Less)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Needs Vaccinations, Abused/Neglected 

    She is a very sweet and submissive dog, a little territorial sometimes though. She is fully house trained and I have had her for 2 years now and I rescued her from adopt a pet. She was due for her yearly checkup this month but I figured the new owners would take her to a vet anyways! I don't have a yard big enough to give her the excersize she needs and I'm having to work a lot lately so I need to find her a good home preferably one with a farm with animals since she does tend to herd people. I have 2 teenage girls that have been around her and she does really good on a leash too! I've taken her walking all over and she has gotten along ... (Read More)with everyone and most other dogs too! It's mostly when she sees another dog around our house that she gets territorial. Any other questions you might have please feel free to contact me!

PIease Read Before Adopting an Australian Shepherd in Tennessee
    Australian Shepherd Dogs can make good pets in Tennessee if they match your IifestyIe.
