Meet Nero, a beautiful red merle Australian Shepherd, who weighs around 45 pounds, and is about 5 years old. Nero was one of our first adoptions in Illinois but was returned. He started to growl at children in the home under 12 years of age, because of this we are asking you only apply if you don’t have pre-teens or younger living in the home. He is not aggressive, just lets them know he is uncomfortable.

Nero with adults and teenagers is just like any other dog that loves people. He gets along fine with other dogs, tolerates cats and is completely housebroken.

Nero is good in a car, on a leash and will not chew on anything left out. He is the perfect indoor dog. Nero is not an overly active Aussie so an adopter looking for a companion will not find a better friend to have in their home.

Nero suffered a bad cut on his back leg which then became infected horribly. We are trying to help offset those costs, if you would like to donate to his medical expenses, please click below.
Keep your eyes open for his eventual placement on our Aussies in Illinois page.
