More About Australian Shepherd Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: Australian Shepherd (medium coat). Check out Mr. Handsome! Gus is a stunning 7 year old Black Tri Male Australian Shepherd. Mr. Handsome (Gus) weights 60 pounds but it's healthy muscle, for Gus is still an active boy! Gus loves to play and bring you his favorite toys (he has many). Frisbee and fetch being on the top of the list. Mr. Handsome is also great on the leash, crate trained, house trained and has great basic training. He loves interacting with his people and he likes other dogs, but people give treats!! Gus can also be an independent and determined guy and for that reason, he needs a strong, determined leader who will continue with his training, of which includes learning that the trash and counters are off limits in his home. He has recently been groomed so that stunning coat of his is a bit shorter (shown in a couple photos). Because of Gus' size, his hard playing and his need to continue on his house manners, Gus should not be adopted into a home with young children. Gus is being fostered in Columbia, MO area. If this tall, dark and handsome guy sounds like the one for you, please forward your inquiry. Gus is up to date on his vaccinations of Bordetella, Rabies and Distempter. He has been Heartworm tested (negative), Fecal tested (negative) and is Micro-chipped. Gus takes monthly preventatives, every month of the year, Heartgard and Nexgard.
