found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
I am a 49 pound, 1 year old Australian Shepherd mix. I am a little timid at first and initially I am more comfortable with women than men. However, I warm up very quickly once I know you humans are friendly and I am very affectionate.
I enjoy the company of other dogs and I did well in doggy day care where I made many good friends. My family had to relinquish me to MaxFund because their older dog (over 9 years old) just did not want me in their family. Because of that I have learned to be quite defensive around aggressive dogs.
I am housetrained and I have had formal dog obedience classes too. I “sit” well but have to admit that I need a bit more practice with “heel.” Taking me to positive reinforcement training classes would also help me overcome my timidity toward strangers.
I very much enjoy toys, especially Kongs filled with something yummy! I have lots of energy and very much enjoy walks. I also think I would like to go hiking. There is no problem taking me anywhere because I am fine with car rides – I just go to sleep (so I have lots of energy when we get where we are going – ha ha!). Agility sessions may be fun too!
If you are an active person looking for a sweet, energetic and very loving companion you may not need to look any further. So please come to visit me and let’s get to know each other!
