Kernel is a red merle male Australian Shepherd, around 1 year old, who came into rescue with his sister Epoc (Shadow) and both must have had excellent socialization. Kernel will politely greet strangers and expect a pat on the head, he then runs back to his foster pack of 3 other Aussies. So Kernel is learning all the right things about what is expected of an Australian Shepherd.
Kernel enjoys other dogs, ignores cats, and is good with children. He loves car rides and crates well and walks on a leash just fine.
He does have a strange protrusion that sticks out from his Aussie rear-end, we are told it’s a tail, something common in those other breeds, he seems fine with it and actually will wave it from side to side to show just how happy and secure he is.
Kernel is being fostered in the Chicago area. To adopt this unique red merle Aussie, complete an application at New Spirit today. Reference NS 0625.
