Although Bolt is deaf, he knows hand signals for sit, stay, come, good dog, bad dog, spin right and spin left. He was quite nippy in the beginning, but that has substantially subsided. He is crate trained and house trained, likes most other dogs, but can become a bit overwhelmed by dogs that are very large or play too rough. He would do well in a household with other dogs of similar size and temperament. Like many herding dogs, he might not do well with small children. Bolt likes to cuddle and lay next to his human.
He is chipped and neutered. He had FHO surgery in April, but has recovered to the point that no one would ever guess he had been injured. Now he is ready for his forever home.

Duke & Duchess
"Duke and Duchess" are a pair of possible Aussie mixes - maybe with Husky…? Lab…? we don’t know 🤷♀️ Duke is a black tri neutered male with 2 blue eyes and a bobbed tail, Duchess is a spayed female, white with red patches, one blue eye and the other looks like it may not have developed fully. They are about 18 months to 2 years old, they were relinquished to a rescue because they kept digging out (we got them from the other rescue, so have never talked to the original owners), so a secure fenced yard is a must. They are very bonded, so please do not ask if we will separate; they are social, both with humans and other dogs, and seem to be kid friendly - but no young kids, they may get knocked over! They are active, alert and playful, have a good start on being housebroken, just really nice fur-kids! If you are interested in this delightful pair, please fill out our adoption application: https://www.aussierescuesocal.com/applications/adoption_v2/ (Palmdale area)
Cookie is easy to have around the house. She gets along fine with other dogs and cats in the home. She will bark at strangers but is friendly once she knows everyone is safe. I would not trust her around young children because she can be a little reactive to certain kinds of physical contact.
Cookie loves to go for walks. Truly loves it! The one challenge is that when she sees other dogs while she is out she gets very stimulated and will sort of fling herself at their faces. So she needs a strong hand on walks. She’s also pretty nearly deaf so she needs to be on leash.
This is a girl with a lot of life in her even at her age for someone willing to meet her needs.”
