Rescue Me ID: 17-01-15-00466Nellie (female)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

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

    My name is Nellie. I am about 7 years old and my friends think that I may be a Catahoula Leopard Dog-Australian Shepherd mix. I was really sad because my family moved and took me to a shelter-not sure why they didn't take me with them. Then I was even sadder because, while everyone at the shelter told me what a good girl I was, and patted and played with me, they kept walking adopting smaller or younger dogs. I really don't know why, nor does my foster mom, who says I'm the perfect dog. I was SO happy to move in with her. She tells everyone I'm a perfect dog, and, at about 45 pounds, the perfect size. She also says I am just the ... (Read More)sweetest, most easy-going girl you will ever meet. I am perfect on leash and I just refuse to use the bathroom in the house-that would not be ladylike. I was so happy the day I moved into a foster home. I love everyone, and will happily give all of my love to you if you want me to join your family. I am current on all vaccines, am spayed, and am HW/Lyme negative. If you would like for me to join your family, write pals@psknet.com to request an application. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-01-03-00520Elvis (male)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Elvis much prefers to be outside where the action is at his country home, and does a good job guarding the yard. When another dog is in the immediate area and he cannot get to it, he attacks our female Australian Shepherd out of frustration. So we need to find a home for him. He is independent but appreciates human affection and loves, loves, loves to retrieve his ball, though he is stingy about giving it up. He plays well with his cousin dog, and has never shown aggression to humans, child or adult. He has never hurt our cats, but chases them. He thinks he's Aussie, but he 'ain't nothin' but a hound dog' so we named him Elvis.

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Still available- sorry about the wrong phone number! Charlotte is a sweet dog who needs to live on a farm. She is 9 months old, about 70lbs and beautiful. Two blue eyes, blue merle coloring. We don't have the space for her- she would be great on a farm with livestock. She is dominant, so would either need to be the only dog, or slowly introduced to other dogs. Loves people. Housetraining has been a challenge but she is making progress. Will check references, to exceptional home only. Loves to play and snuggle. Great dog just too much for our small yard and home.

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected,
 Fearful/Anxious 

    Wyatt is special needs because of his anxiety. He was ignored for most of his life and then dumped at a high kill shelter. He doesn't trust people and is not sure how to interact with them. He loves people though and wants to be a part of the family. He will just need someone that can give him the time and attention he needs to be reassured. He has made a lot of progress but is still very shy. He does well on a leash and loves kids. He let's my 2 year old grandson lead him around. He has so much love to give to the right family.

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Kovu is approximately 3 years old and very full of life. We rescued him off of the side of the road very malnourished and close to death. A heavy chain was nearly embedded in his neck, and his fur was full of mats.He had heartworms when rescued, but has since been treated. Kovu is now a healthy, happy pup. He is very loving, but can not be around other dogs. Kovu will seem okay with most dogs at first, but will randomly snap on them so he MUST be an only dog. Cats are fine. We would keep him but we have two dogs who he very strongly dislikes.
