(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Spayed or Neutered,
He's a playful and active 1-year-old Australian Kelpie/Shepherd mix who weighs about 45 lbs. Gresham is a medium-sized boy who is looking for a dog-savvy home with older kids/adults. Gresham is a friendly and social dog who enjoys playing with humans and other dogs. He is still young, so he is a smart and eager learner, and with consistent guidance and ongoing basic training, he will thrive. He's great on leash walks, and loves exploring!
Gresham has not yet met any cats, so his behavior around them is unknown. However, he is good with other dogs and enjoys playing with them. He would love to have a furry friend to play with in his new home, or he could also be happy as your one and only. Gresham is an active dog who would do well in a home with a family who enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking or running. He will require daily exercise & play time to keep him happy and healthy!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN ADOPTING ONE OF OUR AMAZING RESCUE DOGS - WE CAN’T WAIT TO HELP YOU FIND YOUR NEW BEST FRIEND!
The first step in getting started with our adoption process is to fill out an adoption application on our website at www.adopt-a-dog.org. We welcome you to come visit our shelter! Meet & greets will be set up by appointment once your application has been received & processed. If a dog is still listed on Petfinder, we are still accepting applications for them!

** Please note that we are taking our best guess on age, breed, and size when fully grown, based on the dog’s physical appearance and what we might have learned about one or both parents depending on the situation. We rarely know a dog's exact age, nor are we able to tell the true or full breed mix of dogs as our information is often limited. We encourage you to consider individual personality rather than relying on a label – meeting a dog in person is the best way to make sure it’s love!
WHAT IS THE ADOPTION PROCESS?: The first step in adopting an AAD dog is to fill out an application via our website www.adoptadog.org. Once we receive your application, one of our application processors will contact you, and answer any questions you may have. We will also ask for additional information if needed (landlord or veterinarian contact information, or other based on your application). Once an application has been approved, we will schedule a mutually convenient time for a meet & greet! We do not operate on a first-come-first-serve basis for adoptions, but on best fit for a family and most importantly the dog.
HOW OLD DO I NEED TO BE TO ADOPT?: You must be age 25 or older to apply to adopt. If you live in a home with other people (ie parents, relatives) the person who will be financially responsible for the care of the dog should be the one to fill out the application.
HOW CAN I MEET THE ADOPTABLE DOGS?: Meet and greets will be scheduled once your adoption application has been fully processed by one of our adoption processors. Please be sure to fill out the application as thoroughly as possible, as we want to make sure we find you the perfect match!
*If you have any additional questions that have not been answered, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org!
