I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
This is Tanner, a three year old Aussie/lab neutered male. If you are looking for a family dog that can handle anything life has to offer, he is it. He is great with and loves the kids, is so tolerant of other dogs it is amazing (even when directly confronted he will turn away), and he is gentle with the cats and non-reactive toward livestock. If your kids want a dog to hug, this big boy would love to be the recipient. He was obviously well loved and cared for before coming into rescue and he loves to hang out with us no matter what we are doing, from hanging out on the couch to walks in the fields. He would make a great jogging partner or a foot warmer on the couch - you choose. He comes when called and stays close when off leash. He knows (and responds to) commands to sit and down and is housetrained - he barks when he needs to go outside. The Labrador half of him cannot resist some counter surfing and while in his foster home he has stolen food directly from a small child's hand with no apparent remorse. We are working on removing the small Labrador devil from his shoulder but the Aussie angel on the other shoulder has more influence by far.
