I am purebred and good with dogs.
Astaire, a very smart, beautiful Red Merle Aussie, was dumped in the country. He was covered with Cockle-burs when he arrived here. He is still pretty shy. He was not treated well before we got him that is for sure. I had to trick him into coming into the house to sleep last night. Then he acted like he was worried about getting in trouble. He is a very non-aggressive dog. He knows sit and hand shake. He is afraid to come when when called. I'm sure there was not a positive reward when he was called. I got the broom out this morning to clean the doggy room and he could not get out of here fast enough. Poor baby. He is very young. I would say between 6 months to 1 year. So I am going with 7 months. We'll know more when the vet gets him to be neutered.
He gets along with the other dogs.
We started him on De-wormer right away. Will give him the distemper/parvo vaccination today. He will get his rabies shot when he is neutered.
He was groomed yesterday and feels and looks much better.
