Oakley's Story...
Oakley is a 10 month old female double Merle Australian Shepard named Oakley. She is unfortunately not good with kids but ok with submissive dogs. She is a one or two person dog. If it is just just a husband and wife or whatever, the dog would be perfect. She is super loving and would be a great fit for that environment. When I say she isn't good with dogs and kids I'm referring to her living with both here at our house but wants to guard me and my wife from both the kids and other dog. She is basically like this toward anyone she doesn't know. She will bark and carry on. My other dog is not a threat at all and not aggressive so she doesn't start anything with her to make her that way she just is a guarder. When she isn't sitting right by us and is playing she is excellent with the kids she will let them take toys out of her mouth and loves playing fetch and chicken with them. She knows basic commands such say stay,sit,lay down,leave it etc. Like I said she is a 1 or 2 person dog that will be perfect and loyal to them. One on one attn and very few adult owners make this a perfect fit.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Indianapolis 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 Indianapolis 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/Australian Shepherd breeders who help with Australian Shepherd/Australian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Indianapolis paves the way for another one to be saved.
