Beau's Story...
Beau/Ranger is a handsome 4 year old blue merle Australian Shepherd male. This fellow weighs in at about 40lbs. He’s very shy and timid with new people until he gets to know them better, and then becomes very affectionate. He loves to give hugs, play with toys and go for walks. Beau has wonderful leash manners and will walk on a loose leash at your side. He also really enjoys car rides and is very well behaved.

Beau gets along well with cats, female dogs, teens and adults, though he does like to chase cats. Beau has not been introduced to children.

He came to rescue after his owner passed away. He was infected with heartworms, but has completed his treatment and is doing well. Our kind donors have paid for his treatment.

This guy is UTD on vaccinations, heartworm preventative and is neutered, as well as microchipped, Beau becomes very anxious during thunderstorms and wears a Thundershirt and likes be tucked into a covered crate to keep him comfortable.

He is fostering in St Peters Missouri near St Louis MO. If you are interested in making this gorgeous guy a part of your family, please complete an ADOPTION APPLICATION

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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