ADOPTED: Meet Josie a 1 and a half year old Blue Merle Australian Shepherd. Josie weighs around 40 pounds, is up to date on all her shots, spayed and heartworm negative. Josie is housebroken and crate trained.
Josie is shy when first meeting people, usually producing a low growl or bark, she doesn’t charge, or show an aggressive move, but more like she is vocalizing her concern. If it is a women, Josie will start to initiate contact and slowly warm up. As for men, well it’s a bit more of a struggle and will take time to break the ice. She is not aggressive, just impartial to men, p[referring to stay away.
Josie gets along well with other dogs, will initiate playtime, she does feel her crate is her space and as such will warn other dogs away. Josie plays with toys and is a expert de-stuffer of toys, so be aware you will have white clouds populating the floor if she is left on her own. Josie rides very well in a car, either laying quietly in the back seat or staring out the window. She walks on a leash but will pull slightly. She has excellent recall and has been walked off leash and is always within range of her foster mom.
