My name is Shep!
I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, and up to date with shots.
Shep is adapting to life in a house with ease. He has not had a single accident and is quiet and well behaved in his crate. He loves people and likes to stand up, put his feet on your shoulders and give you a gentle hug. He looks and feels like a big teddy bear. He walks beautifully on a leash without pulling and is great off leash, coming when called. He is good with kids and other dogs, but he does chase cats and seems a bit too interested in the ducks and other things that run. We don't know yet how much of that chasing is herding instinct or if there is more to it.
Shep is a gorgeous 3 year old male aussie that has never known the warmth of a house or much attention. He has spent his entire life outside with an automatic feeder and waterer. Despite that, he is anxious for human attention and we think he will make someone a great family member.
