Courtesy Listings

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.

Toby

"TOBY"  is a 2.5 yr old neutered red merle male Aussie who does better with dogs his size and up. He currently lives with a female Dane, a female Golden and a female Dachshund, and he has been targeting the Doxie the past few months, to the point of causing a gash on her that required surgery. He loves playing with the others, just too much for the smaller dogs. He may do well as an only dog in that he really prefers to get all the attention! He loves to play fetch, go on walks, and get cuddles, is housebroken and crate trained, and is well behaved in the house. He lives with kids 5 & up and does great with them, he is a friendly boy in general, but is not good with cats. His owners are going to be moving out of state soon and they are afraid the stress is going to make Toby even more aggressive acting towards the Doxie. If you are interested in this handsome boy, please fill out our adoption application and we will forward it to his owners: https://www.aussierescuesocal.com/applications/adoption-application/ (Eastvale area)    (9-18)

Simba

"SIMBA" is, at best guess, an Aussie x Corgi mix, neutered male about 2-3 yrs old. He was rescued out of a shelter, and now ready for a new home. He loves car rides, doesn't like cats, and would really prefer to get all the attention, so may be best as an only pet. He is a friendly boy, very personable. He is crate trained, knows sit and to hand you his paw, very smart boy 😊 He is not ready for a dog park situation at this point, rather pushy with other male dogs but seems to do okay with easy-going females, just needs time to get to know them. If you are interested in this little cutie, please contact rescuer Alexis at 661-666-1770 (Valencia area)    (9-18)

Bear ADOPTED

We rescued Bear from the Shelter a year ago, and we have known this sweet boy since he was a puppy. He was surrendered by one of our neighbors...so we decided we HAD to rescue him and become his Foster Parents until we could find the perfect “forever” home for him. We fell in love with Bear and decided to keep him. Unfortunately, my wife and I are getting a divorce and no one is at home during the day to keep Bear company. I am out most of the day and feel bad that he is left alone and since we are going to sell our home, most of the places I am looking at do not allow for large dogs. Bear is about 60 pounds of love.  He is a love! Bear is sweet, affectionate, fun loving, housebroken dog. He likes to play, have his tummy rubbed, take long walks, go for car rides, play with toys and most importantly be included with the family. He does not like people in uniform or delivery people as he tends to want to protect the family.  Bear is great with children and can be a great guard dog and protective of family members, but he is loving with people and good with other dogs. He has even been amazing with our older dog who is 17. He likes to snuggle and put his head on your lap. Bear does quite well when left home alone during the day as he likes to relax but loves interaction too. He is intelligent, listens to commands, learns quickly, and responds well to positive voice affirmation. Bear is a neutered male, black tri Aussie, and would be a wonderful addition for any family who includes him in family activities, whether inside the house or outside. I believe he prefers the house mostly. Bear is a neutered 6 year old male and loves to have his walks 1-2 times a day. He would do well with a family who walks him and interacts with him on a daily basis. Bear will bring joy to any home.  Bear is a fairly large Aussie (about 60 lbs). He loves his treats for being a good bear. You will fall in love with Bear too.    If you are interested in sweet Bear, please contact Bruce @ 818-636-8600  or email: bhamous@naicapital.com   (Moorpark area)(9-18)

Andy

"ANDY" is a 10 year old, male,  Mini Aussie and weighs 25 pounds
Not only is he adorable, Andy is also a very sweet and loving guy once he gets to know you. He was rescued from a commercial breeder where he was not socialized so he is very skittish and will run when scared. He has been fine with other dogs...not necessarily interested in them but not aggressive either. Andy loves to have company and enjoys treats and pets too. If you are interested in adopting Andy, please fill out an adoption application http://aussierescuesandiego.org/foster-and-volunteer/adoptionapplication/(8-18)

Layla

This is "LAYLA". The shelter said she is Cattle dog/ Dalmatian. She is approximately 50 pounds and estimated to be 12 years old. I rescued her at the LA animal shelter. She was on her last days there with no adoption and was submitted in early July. She is spayed and up to date on shots with a microchip. She is registered with LA county. She is the most mellow dog around. She does love to be outside, so someone with some sort of yard with grass is ideal for her. I did notice she barks at little dogs, but is not aggressive. She tries to keep up with my Australian cattle dog who is 7 but she has some hip problems. She is a little wobbly and shaky when walking and sitting. She sometimes leans over when sitting cause she can’t support herself. She was filthy (and has been groomed) and has some skin issues. Nothing major and nothing a bath can’t fix. She is missing teeth and slowly chews food. She is friendly with other dogs and just likes to hangout. My dog has already nipped her so I have to keep them separate. I am located in Orange County. The ideal person who can foster or adopt this precious would have time for her and have some sort of yard. She is so easy to care for and is the sweetest. I would require a meet and greet and a thorough interview before accepting fosters or adoptions. She deserves a great home.   Contact: Jeanette @ 714-856-2523 or  jeanetten2@ymail.com                     (8-18)

Jewel

"JEWEL" 8 years old, female, short hair Aussie mix.                                                                 Jewell was at a local shelter where she was so shut down, staff members had to carry her when moving her.

Jewell has come a long way! She is now healthy, has a gorgeous coat and sweet adoring eye. She is still very shy with new people but usually will take food.

Kuma

Unfortunately Kuma's last adoption did not work out - he does need to be an only pet in the home.

"KUMA" is a neutered male, 8 years young. He is housebroken, uses a doggie door, rides well in the car, and enjoys playing fetch/ball. He has been good with current owner's 11 year old grandson and four kids next door, ages 4 to 11. He has had a recent check up and has a clean bill of health. Kuma is up to date on all his vaccines. He can be nervous to start when meeting new people but once he warms up, he is affectionate. Kuma loves his walks and car rides.
He attended doggie day care with other dogs where he is mostly aloof. He can be reactive to dogs on the leash. So best he is with someone experienced as he does lunge at them while out on walks and once pulled his elderly owner into a telephone pole, injuring her (if no dogs are around, he walks well on the leash). She does have a dog walker take him out now, but he is also becoming very protective of her and he is just too strong for her to handle, he's been resource guarding some of her belongings and she is unable to stop him. Kuma is very smart and can be trained not to do this and would be best with a younger, more active owner, he does better with women than men. His groomer says he does very well being groomed.
His prior owner passed away 2 years ago, and that is when his current owner took him in, and unfortunately she is unable to take care of him herself now. If you are able to give Kuma a loving home, please contact Mickie at mickie.c.robbins@gmail.com (Manhattan Beach area) (7-18)

Fluff

Meet Fluff. Fluff is a black bi-colored (black & white) Australian Shepherd and is about 7 years old. He was an owner surrender to the shelter, because his person was moving. He is very sweet and is really looking to bond with his person. Typical of his Aussie heritage, he is engaging and sweet. He likes to play ball, and he is a gentleman and brings it back to you. He is well socialized with other dogs. He does guard his ball, but is respectful when playing with another dog if that dog gets the ball first. He walks well on a leash, and appears to know some basic obedience. Since he is in a kennel environment, the stimulus is a bit much for him. He does react to the other dogs when they bark at him while on leash. This may be just being in a kennel environment.

If you are interested in meeting our dogs, please fill out an adoption application. We require a pre-approved application to be on file before any meet and greets are scheduled. The electronic application can be found on our website at http://www.bordercolliesinneed.org/border_collie_rescue_and_adoptions/adoption_application.html (6-18)

Colt

"COLT" needs a new home asap! He is not good with the other dogs he is currently living with.
Colt is a three year old, neutered male and weighs 30 lbs
Per owner:
"Colt is an amazing, athletic, smart, eager to please dog who knows basic commands as well as functional ones like staying out of the kitchen. He needs a home with no other dogs and an owner who can make sure he is safe around other dogs. He loves to cuddle and would be an ideal dog for a VERY active person who likes to hike and run. He runs 3-5 miles a day and gets out to play with a ChuckIt 2-3 times a day. He currently has 1/2 acre to run around and is on a raw diet due to skin allergies. We have a house cat whom he gets along with, they walk around together and sit near each other, though I never have them together unmonitored. Gets along great with kids, pukes in the car every time with or without food in his tummy" Colt is currently living with horses, goats, other dogs, a cat, a tortoise, and a potbelly pig. He has not once shown aggression towards any of the other animals other than the dogs. Colt is very well trained. He doesn’t use a leash when out and about and he will not wander if the gate is left open. Colt plays and does well at dog parks. He is highly motivated with a ball and one on one time with a person.
