ADOPTED: Meet Shep or as he is known in the circuit, Ol Blue Eyes! Shep is up to date on all his shots, house broken, crate trained and heartworm negative and microchipped.
Shep is a beatiful black tri medium sized Aussie at 45 pounds with the most striking blue eyes we have ever seen. He is high energy and he is ready to play but he also likes to chill out. He enjoys walks and playing catch in the yard. He walks well with a gentle leader. His foster Mom is working on basic obedience work, heeling, stays, waiting at the door and in the crate until he is released, he has made a lot of progress since he has been in his current foster home and there is no reason to think that he will not continue to progress. He is very food, play and attention motivated. Nothing makes him more happy to be praised for his good behavior.
Shep does come with some baggage that we are working on. He is a COUNTER SURFER and there seems to be no stopping him. He will take things off the counter and he likes to play keep away but will exchange whatever he took for a treat. For that reason he should be crated at night and when you are at work or away. He likes car rides but he should be crated as well as he can get over-excited.
Shep gets along with other dogs but it would be better if they medium to large dogs as he can easily overwhelm smaller dogs.
