Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Abbie is a small 32lb bundle of awesomness! Though her paperwork from her last owner said she was an Australian Shepherd/Lab cross we have our doubts. She can be a bit leary of new people and do a lot of barking at them but once she gets to know you your as cool as a cucumber in her book! She loves treats and is fully housetrained. Abbie is a shedder so she will need a home who will brush her often! She walks well on leash with minimal to no pulling.

Rescue Me ID: 15-06-18-00594Sadie (female)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    My name is Sadie & I was sent to a scary place called the dog pound because my owner could no longer take care of me. Problem with that is that the shelter she sent me too has little public exposure & I was almost sure to loose my life because of that. However the rescue ladies who come in to the pound all the time happened to see me cowering in the back of my run & they decided to get me out. Now I'm hanging out here at this place they call a foster home until my new real home can find me. I am a year old, UTD on all my shots & I have already been spayed. I'm good with the other dogs here but I'm not sure about the cats (I like to chase ... (Read More)them). I am good with kids but because I have LOTS of puppy energy still the rescue recommends that I go to a home with kids over the age of 10. I am housebroken, walk nice on my leash & LOVE to ride in the car. Want to give me a new home? Applications are online at www.lostfantasystables.org (Less)

    Kane is my 2 year baby girl! It saddens me gravely to have to relocate her but I know it will be the best option to provide her with better stability. I am not asking for a adoption fee to myself but only to find her a home where i know she will be loved and safe. She is the sister to her twin bother Riddick and is a wonderful dog but unfortunately my homeowners are unsure about keeping her in the home due to the damage she has done to the doors.I have raised her and riddick since they were 6 weeks old and now that she is older and hasn't matured like her brother has and has grown to be the wild child of the family. She is not aggressive or ... (Read More)mean towards other dogs or people(including children),just very hyper and very loving towards people. Kane is a wonderful animal and is the sweetest girl. With more attention and obedience training than I can provide she will be an awesome addition to the family. I am active duty military and with my husband deployed I do not feel I can give her what she needs to progress and mature and would like to provide her a home where that's capable. (Less)

Australian Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Zy is a 3.5 year old bundle of love and energy! Her ball catching skills rival that of major league baseball and her acrobatic skills of those in a Circus. After being raised as an only child, she has been fostered with a pack of young, wild Aussies and has done well but has no interest in dog interaction. She is truly a human companion. She walks well on a leash, has great house manners (she is a counter surfer)! Zy would be best with a single female who is fairly active. She really needs a fenced backyard to play. Oh, swimming is a favorite pastime! No children http://www.australianshepherdsfurever.com/adoptionapplication.php

Rescue Me ID: 15-05-01-00483Melvin (male)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Name: Melvin Age: 8 months old Breed: Australian Shepherd mix Location: Elkton, VA 22827 Weight = 37 lbs. Melvin is an Australian Shepherd mix that is a very intelligent puppy with a lot of energy. He is very affectionate, animated and agile. He has big brown eyes that will melt your heart; his tan and white coat is of moderate length, extremely soft to the touch and he has a docked tail. Melvin knows 'sit' and 'down', we are still working on 'stay'. I would recommend a basic obedience class to improve his 'on-leash' walking. He has pretty good 'recall' for such a young guy. Being an adolescent, he likes to counter surfer (we are ... (Read More)working on that) and he likes to check out the trash cans. He sleeps through the night in his crate, but we do limit his water intake after dinner. He is pretty well housebroken and will still need frequent breaks after food and water intake. He is very people friendly, but he can get over excited which results in him jumping up (but he responds well to down). He plays really well with our Aussie and like him, Melvin is very vocal, growling when playing or barking when he wants something. When we introduced him to our barn cat, he seemed to care less about her than her food. Melvin is learning to enjoy his crate, he eats in it, sleeps in it at night and goes in it if we can't watch him during the day. Being an energetic puppy, Melvin requires lots exercise to stay in shape, mentally and physically. He likes to play fetch and is learning to catch a Frisbee. He loves squeaky toys and balls. He is food motivated so he will do well with positive re-enforcement training. You still have to remind him to be gentle when taking treats from your hand. Melvin will settle in the house after adequate exercise. Due to his energy level, no children under 10 and potential adopters should have herding dog experience. He likes to be brushed and he stands to have his feet wiped. Melvin is UTD on his shots, neutered, on heartworm and flea/tick preventatives. He is a handsome boy that will be a devoted, loyal companion for anyone that has an active lifestyle. He would be a perfect prospect for agility, fly ball or Frisbee training. For additional information on Melvin, please fill out an on-line adoption application & contact his foster Mom, Tina at tinagrove@ymail.com. His adoption fee is $250.00. SOHO requires you to provide a Vet reference. If your current or past companion animals are not UTD on vaccines and Heartworm treatment you will not be considered for adoption. (Less)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Eddie's Info... I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and good with dogs. Eddie's Story... Eddie came to us (along with his brother Garry) from a high-kill shelter in NC. Eddie and Garry are kind, calm and absolutely charming! We love them and we know you will too!

Animal ID: 0160Rio (male)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Rio is a beautiful boy with unusual eyes. Rio will need a kind patient understanding forever home. He was an owner turn in due to no fault of his own, his owners had to go to an assisted living facility and could not take him with them. I believe Rio is a bit confused and missing his previous owners and will need time and patience to adjust to his new life. Rio is around 50 lbs. He is utd on shots, neutered and monthly HW and flea/tick medications. Rio rides well in the car, could use a little work on his leash manners but does okay. Rio is good with most other dogs and is good with adult humans, he is not good with children. He ... (Read More)knows some basic commands like sit, come and down. Rio is sometimes a barker or growler, but is not aggressive and he is easily corrected and he takes correction well and a firm no will get his attention. He likes balls and in particular a larger Kong squeaky ball. Rio is not food aggressive and takes treats nicely. He likes water and the kiddie pool. Rio went to the groomers and did fine although he was not too thrilled about it. If you are interested in this sweet boy go to www.australianshepherdsfurever.org and click the link at the top that says 'NEED FUREVER HOMES' to fill out an application. (Less)

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

Australian Shepherd
lnteresting Australian Shepherd Trivia Low-Cost Virginia 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. 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.
