Dash is a 1 year old blue merle male currently weighing 52 pounds. Dash is a large guy with a healthy appetite so will be gaining weight as he matures. He has a perfect personality – very happy and very friendly – a natural charmer with his deep, dark, innocent eyes.
Dash found his way to rescue as a former farm dog loving to chase cows. The original owner was afraid of other farmers mistaking him for a wild animal – not a safe situation. Now in foster care Dash is awesome and loves his three, new, four-legged friends (2 Aussies and one cat) – not to mention his new foster parents and brother. Dash is friendly to all people he encounters showing no issues with men or women. Dash has a very gentle demeanor with the children that come in and out of the house – always eager to play or share a spot on the sofa. He also loves and respects his feline friend and enjoys “chase” on occasion, if the cat is up for it that is.
Dash would benefit in finding a permanent home with other pets and children because of his love to run and play in the fenced-in back yard with them all. Dash is a “Velcro” Aussie and would do best not being away from his “people” for very long. He is learning to leash-walk and with a little more time will have it down cold. Dash has good recall, is house broken and understands the standard commands of “sit,” “stay,” “come,” “take it” (for food and treats), and “free” (for releasing outside to play with his new friends). He does extremely well in the car and easily shares the space in the back of the SUV with the other Aussies. He is crated when the foster family is away and has no fear of his large crate – and prefers to watch TV while the family is out.
