    Hi everyone! I'm Boscoe. I appear to be an Australian Shepherd and Rottweiler mix and am approximately 5 years old (as of July 1, 2017). I am laid back, and love to follow my human everywhere. I don't jump on my humans, am house trained and have perfect house manners. I am very sweet and docile and hardly bark other than when a stranger knocks at the door. I adore children and get along fine with cats and other dogs. I am excellent on leash. I can't wait to find a family of my very own. My adoption fee is $85.00. I am neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. *PLEASE SUBMIT AN APPLICATION AT ... (Read More)RURALANIMALRESCUEEFFORT.ORG **An application and home visit are required prior to adoption.

Australian Shepherd    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Lulu is the sweetest pup. She is very loving and will follow you around everywhere. She does not chew on things, she is house trained, and she loves to give kisses. However, she becomes territorial and will protect you at all costs which can result in nipping of people she feels are a threat. She is easily trained, and already knows a lot of basic commands. She needs a home where there is a large fenced-in yard.

    Hello everyone! My name is Lassie and I am an Australian Shepherd mix. I am approximately 1.5 years old (as of 7-3-17) and weigh about 55 pounds. I am a sweet girl and and am very playful. My foster mom says I am medium to high energy. I am crate trained and good with other dogs. I also like little humans (children).

Rescue Me ID: 17-07-01-00176Paco (male)

Australian Shepherd    Age: Puppy

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

    This is Paco. He is a 1.5 year old standard altered male Australian shepherd. I got Paco in hopes to have a companion for my 4 year old lab. Unfortunately, he is too high energy and 'bossy' to fit in our family. We have worked with him a TON since we got him off Craigslist about 3 months ago. He had been on Craigslist twice when we got him and we really wanted to be his forever family. However, we were not well educated on the breed and he has now become the 'king of the house' and is not submitting to us currently. He needs a fresh start with a new family. I believe he would be best off as an 'only child' with an adult male human as his ... (Read More)master. He needs exercise and would do best with someone who works from home or who has a farm where he can have a job. He is very sweet but does not like being told 'no'. He does growl when he is in the wrong but he has made large strides recently with us keeping him in his crate at night and during the day when we are gone and keeping him off the furniture. I spoke with an Aussie trainer who suggested these things and it is starting to help! However, we are getting married this year and I travel for work a lot which makes for inconsistent training. PLEASE reach out ASAP if you are interested. (Re-homing fee is only to make sure he goes to a home that will be patient and stern with him) (Less)

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Adoption fee is only to insure Solo goes to a good home with someone who really wants him. Solo is a purebred shepherd with no papers. Unfortunately I am unable to give the attention he needs. He will need a human that will work with him as he is NOT dog friendly at this time. He does well with everyone he meets but is very high energy so probably should not be around small children or the elderly. He is the sweetest dog to people but just needs someone willing to work with him to get socialized with other animals. I have 2 cats which he gets along with fine but any new animal he meets he is not as friendly please email at ... (Read More)Johnson.cassandra1992@gmail.com (Less)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed 

    This is a wonderful dog, who loves her family. She is trained, and she understands commands very well. She knows the words 'Sit' 'Stop' 'down' 'bad' 'good' 'yes' 'no' 'Don't do that' 'Thank you' and 'Paw'. I recently moved to the city from a farm, and it wasn't a good move for her. I had 8 acres of land that she could run on there, and now I have a very small yard, in an area where there are a lot of dog fighters and I fear she could get hurt if she were to get out. I know this is what's best for her, so I need a better family for her. She is beginning to chew up my yard, and I can't pay for it if my landlord sees it. Thank you.

    Junior is a 2 year old Aussie/Beagle mix who was an owner surrender. It seems Junior was a bit too active and had to be kept on a chain which is sort of sad.

He is very short and stumpy but very thick and fat and weighs right at 40 pounds on his short and stumpy legs. Junior will be neutered prior to adoption and unfortunately was not put on heartworm prevention and he tested positive for heartworms. He is being treated. Junior is very good about not pottying in his kennel and does his best to hold it for outside ... (Read More)exercise time.

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. 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 Tennessee 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 can be trained to perform tricks.
