Story
Roscoe (Nashville TN) is ready for his FurEver Home! 3 years old & 90 lbs (Gentle Giant) Up to date on ALL vaccinations Microchipped HW neg/on preventative Crate Trained & Potty Trained Good with other dogs (submissive), cats, ducks, chickens and bigger livestock. Incredibly shy at first but he is a protector (non aggressive shepherd) and hard lover. Don't let Roscoe's size deter you, he is very laid back, low energy and loves walks. He is new to leash walking, so he does need to have his harness, so he doesn't pull you down. He is a strong boy, but listens well when called to ease, during a walk. He gets excited when going outside or seeing a squirrel but doesn't chase. He will take a treat from you, when you ask him to sit and is so gentle while doing so. Roscoe loves tummy scratches, laying on the porch during morning coffee and being brushed. His favorite is ear scratches! His FurEver family would be so blessed to have this big snuggle bug! If interested in Roscoe, please fill out an application and he would love to meet you/your family! Fill out the application at: https://www.australianshepherdsfurever.org/adoption-application There is an additional $20 microchip fee which includes registration and transfer to his new furever family. All adoption fees are used for future rescue efforts.

Story
Hi I’m Naudia Kingstons original owner. Kingston will be 5 on November 15th. He’s a loving dog. I ended up having a baby 2 years ago and just feel like I don’t have the time to spend with Kingston anymore. Looking for someone with an absolute love for pitbulls being they’re not the most loved dogs. I do have insurance on him, which I’m sure can be switched over to ensure he gets the healthcare he needs.

Story
Hi, I'm Rocky! I'm a 1 1/2 year old Rat Terrier and Blue Heeler (Australian Cattle Dog) mix. I am full of energy, love to sunbathe, and would spend all my time playing and outside if I could. I have 3 human siblings in my current family (ages 7, 5, and newborn) and I am becoming very anxious. My family loves me, but I would do a lot better in a family with older children or no children at all. I am very sweet, love to cuddle, housebroken, and up to date on my shots & physicals.

Courtesy Post: Owner Surrender/Rehoming- Smyrna, TN Jasmine is an 8 year old Australian Shepherd in Smyrna, TN and weighs 30 lbs. She is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on shots, but isn’t on heartworm prevention. Jasmine is fearful of strangers! Her owner says she only likes females. She hasn’t been tested around kids. No cats or dogs, due to her reactivity! The owner is surrendering her because they’re going through a divorce and moving, but can’t take her with. She needs to find a new furever home as soon as possible! If you think you can provide a great home for Jasmine, please contact the owner listed below. There is a $150 rehoming fee to assure good folks with good intentions. This fee will be donated to Australian Shepherds Furever for their assistance in placing Jasmine.
