Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    Sammy is a beautiful dog. He is a heeler/Aussie mix. White with black spots,blue merling around face. He has the head of a heeler, body and hair length of an aussie. Sammy is a love bug, he loves attention, he loves to play frisbie and fetch tennis balls, and run with our other aussie in the yard and wrestle and run in the nearby feild by our house and he also loves water and likes when we take him to the river for a swim. He knows commands sit, stay, come, bring it, fetch, shake, high five and high ten. He lays down patiently and waits for his turn to be fed. He plays well with our other aussie and bluetick coonhound, he has however ... (Read More)exhibited agression with our 2 smaller dogs (shelties). He has also bitten all three of his humans on one occasion each, last was very recently when he bit my husband, for this reason we have come to the very difficult decision to rehome him as this may not be the best fit for him. we have had him since he was 16 weeks old and he has come a long way, we just feel perhaps someone who is familiar with the heeler breed would be better able to work with him and find him a suitable home. For the reason above I would not put him in a home with children under the age of mid teens and if other dogs in the home would have to be of the same size and perhaps temperament so that Sammy could not bully them. We beleive he would be a great pet to the right home and he has been a great pet to us, and it saddens us to have to rehome him as we are into rescuing dogs not rehoming them, but we feel it is best for him and us. Please feel free to contact me for additional info, pics, or videos and if interested in being sammy's forever home or foster home to work with and prepare him for his forever home. (Less)

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: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Precious Pipi is an absolutely adorable girl. Unfortunately, her family had no time for her. So she was chained in the back yard to prevent her from being hit by a car. Now she is in a foster home and we would like Precious Pipi to have a new loving forever home. Our guess is that she is an Australian Shepherd mixed with Beagle. She is about 1 year old and weighs 34 lbs. This darling girl loves everyone and gets along with children, other dogs, cats, and even a duck. Precious Pipi is very easy-going and well-mannered. Her favorite activities are running and playing. She will make a great addition to any home. Since she had been staying ... (Read More)outdoors, she is working on a refresher course in house manners, leash walking, and basic obedience. She is trying to catch up on receiving hugs and love. Can you change her life by letting her show you how wonderful she is? Precious Pipi deserves the most perfect home. She will repay you with sweet smiles, happy tail wags, and endless love. If you are interested in adopting Precious Pipi, please go to http://adopt.ddbnova.org. Complete the dog adoption questionnaire and e-mail it to Ldwalthers@yahoo.com. (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)

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.
