Max's Story...
8yo Red Merle Australian Shepherd, playful and loving

Max is a red merle Australian Shepherd who has the energy of a 4-year-old with the wisdom of an 8-year-old. He loves Frisbee, fetching a ball, and pretty much any other activity you come up with. But Max also loves to cuddle and to be with people.

Max prefers to be the dominant dog in a home, or the only dog is fine with him too. He is just a "bossy Aussie" toward other dogs when he wants his way. He lived part of his early life tied outside and was reprimanded by people yanking his chain, so requires a fenced yard so he doesn't have to be on the leash all the time. Max loves people and is a friend to any person he meets, wanting to be with them all the time. He is perfectly cat friendly. 

If you are looking for a sweet buddy to be at your side, full of love and playfulness, this is your guy.  He is housebroken, up-to-date on all vaccinations and up-to-date on his heartworm test. He does know some commands, and you can always teach an old dog new tricks... Max is fostered in St Louis area.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Max, a St. Louis Australian Shepherd dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Shepherd for sale in St. Louis, or seeking a Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in St. Louis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in St. Louis already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a St. Louis breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Australian Shepherd breeders who help with Australian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in St. Louis paves the way for another one to be saved.
