ADOPTED: Meet Mate, a handsome 6 year old Black Tri Australian Shepherd who weighs around 45 pounds, so on the standard size for an Aussie. Mate is neutered, up to date on all his shots, microchipped as well as housebroken and crate trained.
Mate gets along great with other dogs, he is currently living with another Aussie (actually his old partner before he came to ASRM. It was a touching moment when they saw each other – See Cali )and also loves to play and interact with other dogs. Mate even has a cat in the home and is oblivious of him and refused any prodding from “The Cat“.
Mate walks well on a leash and loves car rides. He knows some basic commands such as sit, stay, drop it. Mate does need to work on his confidence in new situations. We have not had Mate near children so we can’t check that box, but he seems laid back in his home environment.
