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). This handsome hunk is Knuckles!! Knuckles is a 55lb. 3-year-old male Black-Tri Australian Shepherd with a fabulous tail.Two words to describe him the best......Beautiful and Loving!The smile and the loves are contagious! I love to run and be outdoors, play with my toys (the squeaker the better) and the harder the toy (I like to hear it bang on the floor) the better! Oh boy the antlers to chew, fetch is fun but it’s 50/50 if I bring the ball back (hehe). Friends! I love my friends but I play hard and fast so they need my silly energy to keep up. Foster Mom says if I get too silly (bad doggie behavior) she will pull out the whistle. I know what that means…. settle down Knuckles. I am a great listener and also respectful and mindful of other dogs personal space when they don’t want to play with me. I love being with my people. I am housebroken and I won’t chew up your belongings!I will sleep in a kennel all night but I like to be in your bedroom please.I love to learn and my foster mom uses positive reinforcement which works the best for me. I get a lot of love and patience because I want to please. I know sit, stay, come and I’m working hard on off, down and my recall is good too.When I came into rescue I had some terrible itching but since being on a grain free diet it has stopped! Right now, I am eating Taste of the Wild. I will need a fenced yard please. I live with a kitty and when he runs I run too. Foster mom says that is a no-no. So, no kitty’s for me.I have not been around small children but I am quite the handful of energy and I’m afraid I may accidentally knock them down. I am neutered, up to date on my Rabies, Distemper, Bordetella, Fecal tested and treated. I am micro-chipped and take my monthly preventatives of Heartgard and Frontline.I am being fostered in the Columbia, Missouri area.

      Haylo

      rescue
      Breed: Australian Shepherd
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Baby
      Location: St.Louis, MO
      Posted Breed: Australian Shepherd (medium coat). Can we bottle this cuteness?! This is Haylo, a male blue merle Australian Shepherd born on 4/29/2016. He is currently about 35lbs. This soft, fluffy, sweet and adorable boy is mostly blind. He was not born this way and is a perfectly healthy puppy. He lost his vision at 9 weeks of age due to an accident. Haylo radiates happiness, joy and love. He does not like to be treated as if he has a handicap but more of a hiccup. Haylo is just like a regular high-energy Aussie puppy wanting to explore the world, play with other dogs, go for walks, learn, be showered with attention and love, show off his smarts and keep you on your toes! He has done amazing with his basic training and is so attentive to your soft voice. Haylo is also crate trained and sleeps through the night. Haylo loves the water........he likes to clean his paws in the bathtub before bed. And weather permitting garden hose please! Haylo loves his foster brother (who has similar energy level), loves toys (squeaky toys, rope toys, interactive toys etc.), is good in the car and enjoys training time because he gets his favorite snack of little baby carrots! Haylo likes to be on the go but once he has settled down he is a snuggle bug. Haylo also has at least one meal from his Bob-A-Lot interactive toy puzzle (it wobbles around while he works to get his food out) and he loves it! Haylo is a high energy Aussie and will be a standard size at adult age. He can be vocal so therefore we can not consider apartments. Haylo has amazed his foster home with his "can do" attitude! There is five (5 steps) that lead out the back door to the yard where he is fostered. Haylo is so confidence on these steps now! His foster has caught him flying off the third step (on purpose) to get to playtime faster. Though he doesn't go down the 12 steps to the basement (yet) he will do just fine with some stairs in the home. Haylo has also been exposed to more noises of the world and has adjusted wonderfully. Instead of being scared he will now give a bark letting them know "I hear you and I'm not scared anymore!". Such a big boy at 6 months! However, he still does not like it when people yell or fight. Haylo is all about love, peace and harmony. This sweetheart is neutered, microchipped, up to date on all of his vaccinations; bordetella, distemper and rabies. Haylo also had a negative fecal. Haylo was tested for MDR1 and he does not have the mutation. He takes Heartgard and Frontline every month. Haylo is being fostered in St.Louis, Missouri. Every dog with Central Aussie Rescue is fully vetted, up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed or neutered, microchipped, and evaluated before being listed for adoption.
