Rescue Me ID: 15-04-12-00428Kisses (female)

Australian Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

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

    Kisses is a purebred Australian Shepherd with papers and can be AKC registered. Like most Aussie, she is very energetic, intelligent, attentive, animated and agile. Her coat is of moderate length, extremely soft to the touch and she has a docked tail. She is extremely affectionate and loves to give kisses to everyone she meets. She knows several commands including 'sit', 'down' and 'shake', we are working on 'stay'. Her off-leash recall is pretty good, especially when you have high value treats. She still needs training in order to walk quietly on a leash/harness. I would recommend a basic obedience class with her new owner. Kisses ... (Read More)meets everyone with a smile and wiggle butt; it's an 'Aussie thing'. She likes to jump up but responds to 'down' unless she is really excited. She performs the 'Zoomies' with perfection. Kisses was raised with children but due to her energy level I would not recommend her for children under 10. She loves her crate and sleeps quietly through the night. She is learning to play nicely with other dogs but she tends to be the 'Bossy Aussie' type. Being an energetic dog, she requires exercise to stay in shape, mentally and physically. She is learning to play with tennis and squeaky balls; she likes chewing on antlers and takes all the stuffed toys to her crate for safe keeping. She is food motivated, so she will do well with positive re-enforcement training. She is very gentle when taking a treat and will lick your fingers clean. After exercise she settles nicely in the house, resting on the floor or the couch, she enjoys snuggling. She is tends to be our shadow, following us from room to room. Whenever there is a noise, she runs to investigate; sometimes this is accompanied by a bark. Kisses is house broke, UTD on her shots, spayed, on heartworm and flea/tick preventatives and is micro chipped. She is a beautiful girl that will be a devoted, loyal companion for anyone that has an active lifestyle. For additional information on Kisses, please fill out an on-line adoption application and contact her foster mom at tinagrove@ymail.com. Her adoption fee is $250.00. SOHO requires you to provide a Vet reference and have a home visit. If your current or past companion animals are not UTD on vaccines and Heartworm treatment you will not be considered for adoption. Kisses is being fostered in Elkton, VA. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-02-28-00227Rachel & Rebekkah (female)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Senior

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

    They are two sisters, 14 years old, border collie/Australian shepherd mixes. They are inseparable and very loving dogs. Good with most other dogs, depending on the personality of the other dog. Good with cats (one is terrified of them, the other ignores) and kids, still fairly high energy but a lot calmer now that they are old. Goofy and loving, very intelligent trained with sit/stay/come (though they're a bit deaf nowadays). Rachel will bark in the mornings when you get up, no matter what, so you can expect that greeting each morning--whether that's annoying or endearing is up for debate :) Looking ideally for a home with a yard and ... (Read More)someone who is home often throughout the day to give love and let outdoors. Expenses WILL be compensated, so really just need a good home without adding the burden of costs. Though eventually looking for a full-time home, fostering would absolutely help for a couple weeks or months, if someone is up for that but not adoption. Timeframe is ASAP. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-02-16-00642Montgomery (male)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Montgomery is simply wonderful, sweet, loving, well mannered, leash trained, house trained, non-destructive. Here's his story. About 6 months ago I was notified of a dog at work. He was scared, he would see a human and run away as fast as his legs would carry him. I would leave food and water and he wouldn't return to that spot again. I would see him sporadically over the months. Then one day I saw he had a broken leg. A compound fracture. It's winter time and the nights are in the 20's and wet. I set the trap, I left food. Nothing. I called in professionals - nothing. His leg looked bad. He didn't go near the traps. Weeks passed and it was ... (Read More)nasty cold with no sightings. I figured he had not made it. Then one day there he was, outside my office window!!!! I set the trap again after being told where he was sleeping. Nothing all day. Then right before I left work there he was in the trap with his tail wagging and a smile on his face! The fracture healed naturally but it is not pretty. He will forever have a bump on his hind leg. He uses the leg, walks on it, jumps around and shows no signs of discomfort so the vet said to leave it alone. He was also heartworm negative! He is funny and goofy and loves to chase lights on the ground. Montgomery is one lucky boy to say the least - will he be lucky enough to win your heart and your home??? If interested in adopting Montgomery please visit KRRTX.ORG and fill out an application. KRR is a TX based rescue that works with transports to bring adoptable dogs out of high kill TX to the NE area. The adoption fee of $355 covers the cost of transportation and health certificate. Thank you for considering adding Montgomery to your home! (Less)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    As of 4.8.15 - I am now URGENT, and will be taken to the Roanoke ASPCA or Angels of Assisi when availability opens up, as early as this week! Do you have the time to let me run in a backyard or on a walk, and also want to cuddle in the evenings? I am a beautiful Aussie Mix female. I'm 3 years old and about 55 lbs. I was adopted from a NC shelter at about 3 months. I have lived with two other dogs for the last 3 years, they are older at 10 and 11 years old (also medium sized dogs) - I don't play very nicely with them. I'm looking for a forever home where I can be the star of the show - I am very trainable with food rewards. My crate can be ... (Read More)purchased for $40 (its a nice large crate I sleep in at night). I am in good health (maybe a tad overweight, I should be about 50lbs), am spayed, micro-chipped, and up-to-date on all vaccines. Best is to email first with any questions and information about yourself/family. Thanks for reading about me! (Less)
