ADOPTED! Meet Jack, a great black tri Australian Shepherd who is of a medium size, around 45 pounds. Jack is neutered and up to date on all his shots. Jack came to us because he was set to be euthanized at a local shelter. He was turned in because he nipped one of the children in the home, and as such, he was on a list, which is very typical for most Aussies surrendered to a shelter with a bite label attached. The shelter felt that he deserved a chance and if an Aussie Rescue would meet him, maybe he would have a chance and not be another statistic in the world of dog rescue.
Well all we can say is Jack is great! The day we sprung him, he was a totally different boy then the guy we met at the shelter. He was wiggling his Aussie Butt (something all Aussie lovers know and love to see). He was already housebroken, and he let his temp foster mom interact and play with him. He was a buddy to everyone he met, man, women, dog, cat and even children.
Jack knows many commands already, loves to play with a tennis ball, we think because he can jump so hi he would make a great agility candidate. Because Jack has a hi energy level, looking to see what dirty dishes you left in the sink, jumping up to look out the window, to trying to give gentle, yet firm hugs, he will need a family that can work with the energy level he has. Jack let his foster brother chew and bite on him all day when he arrived, loving and playing the whole time.
