With the Courtesy Listings, each dog will have a specific contact person listed for interested parties to contact for more information. Other rescues will have their own adoption requirements some of which may vary from ours. Courtesy Listings for private parties are merely a referral, we make no guarantees on them and are relying on the owner to provide accurate information, it is up to the interested parties to determine if it is the right match for them. We do not help them sell their dog, but we do require that the dog be altered before we will post it to our site so the owner may ask for reimbursement of that cost, if it was done to meet our requirements. Any placement/home requirements for these dogs are up to their owner.
"CAMILLE" is a 2.5 yr old spayed female Aussie mix, about 57 pounds, who's owners are looking for a new home for her because due to health reasons, they are not able to give her enough exercise. She is housebroken, crate trained, well behaved in the house, likes to go on car rides and likes to go on walks and walks well on a loose leash. She is very smart, energetic and active, loves to play fetch with her balls or rope toys and likes working for treats and dog cookies and doing tricks. No idea how she is with cats, sorry, and can be nervous/afraid of other dogs - she does have a couple of dog friends, but not comfortable meeting strange ones initially. If you are interested in Camille, please contact her owners: firstname.lastname@example.org (Rancho Palos Verdes area)
"AUSTA" is a 2 1/2 year old cattle dog mix with the traditional cattle dog personality of protecting her handler. She has excellent obedience and lives to play ball. When the ball is not around, Austa is very cuddly and affectionate. http://www.bordercolliesinneed.org/border_collie_rescue_and_adoptions/austa(courtesy).html
"MoJo" is a 1 1/2 year old cattle dog mix with great energy and enthusiasm. He is learning his obedience and, with training, would make a great family dog. http://www.bordercolliesinneed.org/border_collie_rescue_and_adoptions/mojo(courtesy).html
"CHANCE" is an 18 month old double merle neutered male, current on shots and microchipped. He is a wonderful boy, housebroken, great with other dogs, a fairly 'velcro' Aussie, rides okay in a vehicle and okay on a leash. No idea on cats, sorry, just a silly, goofy, sweet boy. He does seem to have normal vision but is deaf. His family has decided to rehome him because they have a toddler and a new baby on the way, and Chance gets startled easily being deaf - he is no way aggressive, but toddlers just don't understand about it. If you are interested in Chance, please fill out our adoption application: http://www.aussierescuesocal.com/applications/adoption-application/ (Bakersfield area) (3-13)
"AUSSIE" is a 9 year old, neutered male, Australian Shepherd. He was purchased in December 2008 at a pet store with my friend Archie. Unfortunately Archie passed away last year and he is now alone. His owner is a full-time caregiver to her elderly mother and have little time for me. He is looking for a home where I can be loved and nurtured.
He is a loving, smart, loyal, and high energy dog. I get along with most dogs, but have had problems with German Shepherd that is in the family. He could use more socialization with other dogs. He is housebroken, crate trained, and has never had any medical issues. Aussie hopes to be adopted by someone that can give me love, attention, and maybe a backyard to run in!

"BENJI" I am a nine-year-old Australian Shepherd with a ton of life, energy and love to give. I was rescued eight years ago. When my family brought me home they began to see I had issues socializing and had clearly been through something that they were not aware of. They hired trainers. Then came my favorite person, Michelle from Trail Dogs. She saw the real me and knew that with the right encouragement I would blossom to be the beautiful dog that I am today. It wasn't the easiest road but now, 2 1/2 years later, I have worked my butt off from not being able to walk by a fence with dogs behind it, to being able to enjoy hikes with a pack of dogs! I have so much potential and I am SO smart; you can teach me anything!! I am a really great guy with a ton of potential. I would be best in a home as an only dog (though I have lived with a female shepherd my whole life) and with no, or older, kids. I need to be with someone that understands my needs and can provide me with structure and boundaries. I am so sweet and love going on hikes and adventures. I am crate trained (car & home), e-collar trained, house broken, neutered and up to date on my vaccines. I am ready to go! (currently in San Diego) Contact Michelle @ 424.625.8067 (2-12)
