ADOPT ME ONLINE: https://ophrescue.org/dogs/13578Hi! My name is Fred of The Farkles litter and I just arrived from Alabama in search of a home of my own. I’m guessed to be an Australian Shepherd mix born around 1/7/24. I currently weigh about 12 pounds so I should be in the 45-50 lb range when full grown.I’m a sweet guy and LOVE to play with my toys and get attention from foster mom. She says I have soft, fluffy fur and beautiful gold eyes that will turn all the girls' heads. I don't know about that but I am a handsome fella!I'm fostered in the Shenandoah Valley but my foster mom is willing to meet my adopter part way to help me find my new family. I'm microchipped, up to date on age appropriate vaccines and monthly preventatives and will be ready to go home with my new adopters as early as April 14th.I'm searching for…- Someone who won't leave me home alone for more than 4 hours, at least not until I am older. The older I am, the more I can stay home alone. I just don't want you to get mad at me if I have accidents or chew things I'm not supposed to when you leave me for too long. I'm a puppy, so I get bored quickly and when I'm bored I could get in trouble.- I am looking for my forever home, not my for right now home. So as I get bigger I need someone to teach me how to be the best dog I can be. I am young and still learning. You may want to teach me some new tricks like sit, stay, etc.- I saved the most important for last. I am hoping my new mom or dad will snuggle with me, play with me and love me forever and ever!Please note that because this puppy is so young, it has only received 2 of the required 3 puppy distemper vaccines. This is very IMPORTANT because it means that the immune system will not be fully functioning until about 16 weeks of age. Until then, the puppy MUST stay out of public places where it could be exposed to the germs of other dogs. These no puppy zones include all pet stores, dog parks, and for apartment dwellers, areas used by other dogs. These requirements are strictly for the puppy’s medical safety and longevity.

Story
This is Oso, but we call him Ozzie, we have been fostering him for 7 months for my mom but seems she won't be able to keep him long term. He has started getting into fights with our dog Rico that we break up, with no real injuries. We have 2 toddlers so we really need to help him find his forever home to someone who has time & experience with dogs but doesn't currently have one. He is 1 years old He is kind, loyal, and good with kids and humans. He is good with other dogs too for the most part but can get dominant. He is up to date with vaccines. He is NOT neutered He is loving - needs attention and cuddles! He is cautious at first with dogs and humans. He has never bitten a human He had gotten into a couple fights with our 3 year old husky Rico over food, bones and jealousy. He needs attention, toys and exercise! Please let me know if anyone is interested in this guy. He would thrive with someone who wants companionship and has a big backyard. Thank you!
