Beau's Story...
**IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ - Due to the nature of our adoption process, this foster is only able to consider forever families within 30 miles from zip code 75082. A vet reference and trial adoption will be done before the adoption is finalized. Thank you for your understanding.

Beau is a beautiful 3-year-old tri Australian Shepherd boy. He was picked up as a stray and taken to the Collin County Animal Shelter where we rescued him. He had huge mats behind his ears and looked like he had not been brushed in a long time. We brushed him and removed all his mats and he looked like a new dog after that. He has only been in his foster home for a week so we will update his bio as we learn more about him, but thus far, he has been so happy to be at home, wagging his nub the entire time, playing with our other dogs and asking to be petted. Despite being clearly the biggest dog in the house (he is about 50lb) he is very submissive and lets our 20lb corgi be alpha. Even when the corgi was trying to bite him and not welcome him into the house, Beau took it as a sign of play and proceeded to play with him until they became friends and were chasing each other in the yard. He is just a happy-go-lucky good nature dog who makes for a very very fluffy teddy bear. Beau is fairly quiet (we have yet to hear him bark), crate trained and house-broken, though as an un-neutered male he marked once in the house. He was neutered on November 1st so his marking instinct will likely decrease. Despite his size, somehow he manages to squeeze through our 6” by 11” doggy door and already learned to use it to go in and out of the house when he needs to go potty. It looks as challenging as putting a mattress topper back in the original package after opening it, but somehow he does it gracefully. Beau will be available for adoption on November 12th.

Anyone interested in our dogs must be over 21. We are only able to adopt to homes within a reasonable driving distance of the dog's foster home (zip 75034) and please be prepared for a home visit by one of our volunteers. We do not adopt on first-come-first-served basis, we want to make sure the dog is right for the family and vice versa based on what we know about the dog's personality, habits and behaviors. Our adoption fee for dogs is $175.

You can complete an online adoption application on our website we will get back with you asap.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Beau, a Plano 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 Plano, or seeking a Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Plano.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Plano 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 Plano 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 Plano paves the way for another one to be saved.
