Animal ID: Buddy  (male)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    This beautiful boy is ready to meet his new forever family! He and his siblings had a rough start, and ended up in my rescue. Now they are chomping at the bit to get jobs and start their careers as family protector and companion! Buddy is a sweet, friendly, and outgoing boy. His heritage is simply a guess, based on what neighbors knew about his parents. It is probable that he has some hound and border collie in that body, too! If you are ready for a wonderful new and forever family member, and you are prepared to neuter Buddy, please come meet him!

Rescue Me ID: 15-10-06-00557Mad Max (male)

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Mange (Demodectic) 

    Mad Max has made it to Seattle all the way from Houston, Texas and he has quite a story! He showed up at the school where I teach last March. No one could approach him or touch him. He was severely emaciated and covered in mange. When school ended for the summer, he was still hanging out in the parking lot. Surprisingly, he waited all summer in the parking lot. Staff fed him and gave him water during the blistering Houston heat. By August, when teachers returned to campus, Max was in horrible condition. He still would not allow anyone to approach him. The administrators at the school said he had to be off property fast, or the authorities ... (Read More)would be called. I knew that if the city pound came out, Max would end up dead. So, we borrowed a dog-trap and trapped him! After a few weeks of medical treatment and love, Max is a different dog! He is friendly and very active. Still very much a puppy, he is probably around 1 year old. He loves to jog with his foster mom, and he is doing well with crate training. Max would thrive in an active home where he could go on hikes, jogs, and other adventures. He appears to be a Husky/Australian Shepherd mix and has blistering blue eyes. Max has already been flown to Seattle from Houston and is available to meet you. He is neutered and up to date on shots. Max comes with free training advice from his foster dad/dog trainer. All Max has known is the street, and he still shows some signs of the trauma and suffering he endured. He needs a patient and experienced owner to help him adjust to life as a loved family member.

Australian Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    Hi! My name is Tanner, I've had quite a rough start for a 6 month old puppy. I was on the street trying to fend for myself with 2 broken legs and a broken pelvis. A good Samaritan tried to rescue me but I was too afraid. She fed me for awhile and then I realized she wanted to help me so I let her catch me. Then I went to Mr Vet who got me feeling better and checked my legs. They had already healed, so there was not much more to do. I run and play like a normal puppy, but I have a limp. I roughhouse with my foster brothers and sisters, and I mind the cats well that live in the house. I'm learning not to be afraid, and my foster family is ... (Read More)helping me with my confidence. They take me on walks and in the car and buy me tacos!! I am coming out of my shell, even tough I am shy, I realize that people are mostly good despite what happened to me. I am potty trained which means I get to sleep in bed with my foster parents, but I am crate trained too. Learning leash skills and basic commands. I am hoping for a home that has a dog, so I always have a buddy. Also, I need a home that will take care of me forever, no matter what. I am neutered, and fully vetted. My foster Mom thinks I am super cute and sweet. Am I the right dog for you? Tanner is in foster care in San Antonio. If you would like to learn more about Tanner, please email his foster mom, Carla Relf, at . His adoption fee of $350 includes air travel to the PNW and all vaccinations, health certificate and medical records. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Submissive

    I love this dog to death he is amazing when it is just him and I, but he does not do good with some others. He is aggressive with other people coming into his space. The next thing is a shelter and I'd really hate to see that. Please help. He needs to go to someone familiar with Aussie issues and good with dogs.

    Hi! My name is Madison, I'm a 4-5 year old Aussie! I'm one big girl, I'm 80 pounds of love! Some of my favorite things to do are to be a lap dog and your shadow!

I am crate and house trained. I really need a family that can devote a lot of attention to me so I can gain their trust once that is done I'm a perfect angel! I am good with children!

PIease Read Before Adopting an Australian Shepherd in Washington
    Australian Shepherd Dogs can make good pets in Washington 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 Washington Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Australian Shepherds are not Australian; they were developed in the United States for herding livestock on American ranches. Aussies can be trained to perform tricks. Some Australian Shepherds are prized for their beautiful merle coloring, but the gene that causes this coloring also results in deafness or blindness.
