"BANDIT" is approximately 1- 1 /1/2 year old neutered male Border Collie. He was rescued from a high kill shelter and has blossomed under the care of his foster mom and dad. He gets along well with his foster siblings but can at times try and be the boss. We feel Bandit would do best as the only dog because of this. Bandit does not do well with cats so should be in a home without them. Bandit is very friendly and eager to please and would welcome a home where he gets lots of attention. We are looking for a home for him with an active family, someone who runs or hikes. He is ok with children but do not recommend little ones because he is very active and could knock a toddler down. Bandit does well in the house but because he is new has had a few accidents but we are working on his house manners. Bandit is also learning to walk on a leash and is a very good student! It is essential that whoever adopts Bandit know the herding dog breeds well, and has had one in the past.

"BEAR" is an 8 year old neutered male mini red tri Australian Shepherd. Sadly, some months ago, Bear's beloved owner passed away. Bear was her constant companion and never left her side. Because she wasn't well Bear became protective of her. Like most Aussies it takes Bear a little while to warm up to meeting new people and dogs. Bear rides well in the car, walks nicely on the leash (occasionally he becomes concerned about a passerby however, with moderate correction he reminds easily that they are none of his business), not destructive and rarely barks, loves to be brushed and is affectionate. He has come to be friends with stable, trained dogs while in the care of our trainer Farren Mahone. However, Bear is NOT a dog park dog. He will take great offense to rude dogs running up to him, as well as take offense if he thought said rude dog would try to come in-between you and he. He would prefer a life as a companion who receives a light evening/morning stroll through the neighborhood. He would easily live with a smaller low energy dog, or being an only dog would be okay with him also. Cats unknown, kids he'd prefer not.

"LYLA" is a 4 yr old spayed blue merle female Aussie x herding breed mix. She is a very sweet girl, friendly, has done well with the male dogs she's been with, walks by the females fine, but I do think she may be on the more dominant side with other females, so would be best either as an only dog or with a nice male. She is playful once she knows them, but can play rough and likes to be chased. She can get overexcited with meeting strange dogs if they are barking and carrying on (pulls towards them, not away), does correct well, but not appropriate for a dog park situation. She will avoid my cat in the house, but I am very sure she would chase if he ran, so would NOT recommend her to be left alone unattended with cats or other small critters. She rides well in the car and we are working on her walking better on the leash. She is much more a people-oriented girl, really wants to be with her humans more than anything. No interest in toys or fetch at this point, is used to sleeping in a crate and night and has no problem with it at all. If you are interested in this beautiful girl, please fill out our adoption application: https://www.aussierescuesocal.com/applications/adoption-application/ - if you've already got one filled out with us, email: firstname.lastname@example.org (Perris area)
"TEDDY" is a 3 yr old spayed red tri female Aussie, reserved at first meeting, but very sweet once she knows you. Teddy is much more people oriented than dog oriented - has been fine with male dogs, may even play with them some, walks by other females, but really does not like other dogs in her face, and *really* prefers to be with her people than with other dogs, she would not enjoy a dog park situation. She does get very bonded to her person, would not do well in a home where no one is home all day. She has no interest in toys or ball/fetch at this point, walks well on a leash and does fine riding in the car. She is crate trained (sleeps in one at night with no problem) and housebroken. She will avoid my cat in the house, but I am very sure she would chase him if he ran, so would NOT recommend her to be left alone unattended with cats or other small critters. Teddy was living with children in her original home and they said she was fine around them. We did have surgery done on her right rear leg, to remove some surgical wire that was coming through her skin. She had been attacked as a puppy by another dog and they really messed up her rear leg - it does not bend like it should, so she's kinda gimpy with it - doesn't bother her, but hiking or jogging is not her thing. If you are interested in this sweetheart, please fill out our adoption application: https://www.aussierescuesocal.com/applications/adoption-application/ - if you've already got one filled out with us, email: email@example.com (Perris area)
Laska is an approximately 1-1.5 yr old spayed female Aussie. Because she is a double merle, she is deaf and has limited vision, but that does not stop her from enjoying life! This is what her foster mom says about her -Hey y’all! I’m super excited that my little foster is finally going to be ready for a new forever home! She’s a doll and has come a long way from the scared pup that would hardly move in more then a circle when I got her from the shelter. This little fishy loves to play in water, go to the farmers market, play dates, is great for the groomer, eager to please and loves to learn new things. She's house broke and crate trained. She’s just as comfortable lounging around the house as she is walking the strip. I’ve taken her to the ranch I work my herding dogs at, around my horse, the flea market, pier, farmers market, pet functions, work with me, doggie play dates, and even out to dinner at our local dog friendly restaurant. She loves it all! Laska does seem to have some allergies that make her eyes tear up, but she gets the "Vet's Best Seasonal Allergy Relief Dog Supplements" and that takes care of it.
