Australian Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

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

    I was rescued from a shelter where I was left in their overnight bin with a broken leg and one baby. They fostered my baby but knew I needed some special attention. I was rescued and transported to my foster mommy in Tennessee. She has cared for me, observed me, trained me, and has shown me unconditional love. Which is all I ever wanted. I had my leg amputated since they found out it had been broken at the shoulder since I was a puppy and there was no way to save it. I don't miss it a bit, since I didn't use it anyways. She says I'm a sweet cuddle bug and everybody adores me. Please consider adding my calm, sweet, cuddling, housebroken, ... (Read More)crate trained, cute wiggle butt self to your family. We are working on sitting pretty before her leash can be put on so that's she's calm no matter who adopts her. She now sits without being asked. She just wants to please just like any Aussie does, and is velcro like no other. Don't let that missing leg fool you either, she can run and play with the best of them. http://www.australianshepherdsfurever.org/asf-adoption-application.html (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-08-10-00379Judo (male)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Judo is a 1 %BD%BD year old heeler/aussie/?? Mix. I rescued him in April but have found that he is not the right fit for my 10 year old border collie. She just had surgery and I cannot have him near her and she is too old for his antics. He is high energy and needs a very active family - he needs a ranch/farm with horses/cattle and other younger dogs. He needs a job to do. He is a very happy dog. He loves to swim, ride in the car and play with horses. He loves to cuddle at night with his head on your shoulder. He is sweet, playful, loving and a great dog. His one downfall is that he likes to bark a lot. I have taught him 'inside' ... (Read More)voice. He is sassy when talking to him which is really funny to watch. He definitely needs more training, he knows the basics, and someone that will utilize his intelligence. He needs someone very experienced with herding dogs and that has strong authority. He can be rather dominant. He is a great dog and I hate to let him go but know this is best for him. He is fully vetted and microchipped. (Less)

Australian Shepherd    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Sasha can be a very well behaved dog. She knows basic commands and is house trained. Sasha does however dislike what she doesn't know. (People at the door, people walking down the street, etc.) Due to her fear we have no choice but to rehome her. She is awesome with kids, (I have 5 ranging in ages from 15-4). She is very scared of men, will cower around them. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Rescue Me ID: 14-06-06-00430Cody (male)

Australian Shepherd    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Cody has been my dog since 2006 when he was just a puppy. This December he will be 8 years old and he still has all the energy that he did when he was younger. He's always lived an active lifestyle and loves to run, to play fetch (he actually bring the ball back now) and to be wherever you are outdoors. When he was younger there was a period of time when I would leave for work in the morning and a guy from the neighborhood would come up to the house (Cody was fenced in the backyard) and throw stick and rocks at him. He even shot him once with a BB gun. As soon as I found out what was happening I put an end to it but, ever since that ... (Read More)point, Cody has been a more protective (of me) and aggressive (towards some people) animal. He is super loyal and very protective... not necessarily bad qualities for a dog but they don't work well living in a neighborhood with kids who love to run up to him very quickly and try to pet him. I managed for a long time by being very careful of who he was around and by warning people not to approach him quickly. In parks he normally just wants to stay by my side and isn't very interested in other people or animals... he just doesn't want people running up and trying to pet him. I hate to put him up for adoption but I've come to the point where I don't have any other real choice. I recently got married and his protection of me means that he bites at my lovely wife. When I am not around he is ok with her but as soon as I return he goes back into protection mode. He has been living at my parent's house and has been doing well there. They just can't take care of him anymore. He typically does well with other people... as long as I'm not around. When I am around he goes back into protection mode. I'm hoping that a change of scenery and not being around me will be what he needs. He loves to hike and loves to have a task to do. He's never been a working dog but does do very well when he fells like he has a task to do. He's super smart and very sweet with people he likes and it breaks my heart to give him up for adoption but I feel like this is the best option for him to live a good and happy life. (Less)

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

lnteresting Australian Shepherd Trivia Low-Cost Tennessee Spay & Neuter Clinics
