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.
"MILLIE" is a beautiful 5 yr old spayed female Aussie mix, about 55 pounds, that needs a home where there are no other pets. She is housebroken and well behaved in the house, She is initially reserved, even shy, of meeting strangers, but once she knows you, she is very sweet and loves attention - loves to follow you around. She also loves long walks and does well on leash, has a medium energy level and enjoys car rides. She knows basic commands like sit, down, shake, roll over, come, no and stay.
Millie is NOT appropriate for dogs parks though - she was originally adopted out of a shelter and at first was okay with the other dogs in the household, but as time has gone by, she is getting aggressive with them - she also will go after other dogs when out on walks/dog park situations. She does respond well to verbal correction but she just does not relax and enjoy that type of situation. She can be around other dogs that are submissive after properly introducing them with a leash on, but should not live with any other dogs or cats. If you are interested in Millie, please fill out our adoption application and we will forward it to her owner: https://www.aussierescuesocal.com/applications/adoption_v2/
Or drop us an email if we already have your adopt app and we will forward it on: email@example.com (Pinon Hills area)
Isabella "Bella" is a 9 year old spayed female Aussie-Border Collie mix (?) who is in need of a loving home with no children and ideally no other dogs. Bella was adopted from a high kill shelter when she was a puppy. Bella has been around other dogs most her life in the home, but within the last year has shown elevated aggression and herding towards the other household female dog that has resulted in breaking skin on numerous occasions and a home dynamic change. Unfortunately she is also not good with kids and her owners are going to be taking next steps as a family - as such they are heartbreakingly seeking a permanent loving home that can provide her with what they can't any longer. She is a sweet girl with a love of playing ball, belly rubs, and following you around. She's happy to sit by your side and keep you company wherever you go. Bella weighs 39 lbs and enjoys walks with little distraction but would need a yard to fetch and play with toys so no condo/apartments. She sleeps inside at the foot of the bed and spends her entire day inside in AC which helps with her sensitive skin. During peak allergy season, she is known to rub her fur until raw and would do best in a home that can give baths and brush often - she is wonderful in the bath and with the hair dryer, but has sensitive feet. She also does not mind shirts/sweaters which helps when her skin is very sensitive. She also does perfectly fine at the groomers. Bella is not destructive (except tearing up toys), she waits for her food when told to sit and can walk on a loose lead when there are no major distractions. She does not get carsick, does not like the vacuum, and will warn you if someone is at the door. She is very smart and would do well with owners who can be very structured, routine, and patient with a passion for training and an understanding of the herding breed needs. She has a heart warming smile and will love you with all she has. If you are interested in Bella, please fill out our adoption application and we will forward it over to her owners: https://www.aussierescuesocal.com/applications/adoption_v2/ (Tustin area)
“TRIP” is a 12 yr old neutered male red trim mini Aussie, who desperately misses having a human of his own as his owner recently passed away. Trip is very gentle, quiet and sweet. He gets along with other dogs (as long as they are not puppies jumping in his face). loves all people, men and women. Although he’s never lived with children, he’s done well the few times he’s been around them. No idea about cats. He needs to lose a few pounds, but given he is down from 50 pounds to 37, he is well on his way to a healthy weight. Trip likes to go for car rides, is housebroken, is used to being primarily indoors, and walks well on leash. He is currently being boarded as his owner’s family cannot keep him, but he would be much happier in a home of his own with an owner who would give him lots of cuddles and shower him with love. The ideal situation for Trip would be a home where someone is home most of the time and can take him on walks a couple of times a day to help him with his continued weight loss and keep his joints moving. If you are interested in Trip, please fill out our adoption application: please fill out our adoption application: https://www.aussierescuesocal.com/applications/adoption_v2/ - if we have your adopt app on file, just drop us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org (Long Beach)
Bailey is about 6 years old, I found her as a stray when she was around 2. Bailey is unable to stay at my moms house and due to my work/school schedule I am unable to care for her the way she deserves. She’s currently at a babysitters house and I see her when I can but not the way she deserves and needs.
Bailey is an active dog, needing daily walks she’s high energy! But also she’s the dog that will nap for 4 hours because she’s so lazy! She’s the best dog out there in need of a LOVING home. Bailey is great with kids, great with cats, and good with most dogs as long as they can meet and sniff at first! Located near Murrieta, CA Please let me know if you’re interested in possibly adopting this sweet girl - 951-467-9877

Meet Eddie, a 2.5 year old Australian Shepherd (standard size, DOB 11/4/2018). Eddie is in need of a new home, one where he can get the time, and more importantly the training, he needs. Eddie has several excellent qualities: he is very loyal, sweet, extremely tolerant of kids, he does not nip/herd the children, he’s house-trained, has mad cuddling skills and his fetch game is strong. Eddie has earned the nickname "Ready Eddie" because no matter the time he is ready to participate in whatever you are doing, that being said, he does know how to be calm in the house.
Eddie also needs some intensive training - he started showing signs of aggression towards other dogs early on and his owner does not have the time or skills to get him where he needs to be in terms of training. He’s made some improvements on walks and is capable of sitting and being calm despite a dog barking behind a fence. Dogs on leash are an different story and are much harder for Eddie to tolerate, he has bitten his owner twice in these situations and it is recommended that he be walked wearing a proper muzzle. Both times the bites were minor and did not require medical attention; it was clearly redirected aggression as Eddie shows no aggression towards people otherwise. He occasionally encounters horses on walks and does not seem to mind them, but has not been allowed to get very close; he has not been around cats. His current owner made a point to pet/brush him while eating and he shows no signs of food aggression. Eddie loves every one he meets, no warm up period required, but not everyone can handle his enthusiasm. His tail-less butt-wiggle is a classic Eddie greeting. On occasion he jumps but rarely on a person - he’d rather show off his impressive vertical leap. Frequent and vigorous exercise is needed and he will even exercise himself if a pool is available. A large fenced yard is a must, especially until he can behave himself around other dogs, a pool would be a huge plus. Eddie has lived with one other dog his whole life and gets a long with him really well. Eddie is a well-loved pup and his owner just wants what’s best for him but recognizes that it’s not his current situation.
If you are interested in Eddie, please fill out our adoption application and we will forward it on to his owner: https://www.aussierescuesocal.com/applications/adoption_v2/ - if we have your adopt app already, drop us an email of your interest: email@example.com (Alta Loma area)
Male, 12 years old, 33 pounds
"REMMY" is a sweet older gentleman. He is apprehensive at first and does not like to be lifted. He does snap at too forward people and so should go to a home without children and be with understanding adopters. Also, he much prefers women to men and is very distant to men. He has quite an impressive resume otherwise -- he is great with big or small dogs and he is crate trained and rides well in the car. He is a bit on the timid side at first and prefers to be left untouched until he gets used to you. He isn't described as overly affectionate with people but will warm up to you once he trusts you. He does need a home without cats.
Remmy did not go many places before coming to POMDR. So a walk to a busy place can be very overwhelming. He has lived a reserved life and it shows in his personality. Slow exposure is ideal for him.
He walks well on leash. He eats and sleeps in his crate - being led in by food and then settling in comfortably. Remmy does pace in the house and yard, especially during transition but then will mostly just follow his person around. He wants to be with you and is actually showing anxiety when left behind so needs help understanding being left alone is ok. He is hearing and vision impaired but has good energy for his age. He watches intently but doesn't really know any commands.
Remmy came to us from the Newman Animal Shelter.

The litter was bred with an Australian Shepherd and Malinois.
Fuzzy is super sweet. He would be best in a home where he is an only dog and no cats/small creatures. (We imagine him with a doting couple) He grew up with children so is okay with good structure and boundaries.
He is super food motivated and loves working for his treats but is also pretty much a couch potato. His basic OB is on point - he even has a sit pretty! He has a dense undercoat and loves the camera. He will pose for a picture! Fuzzy loves baths and grooming time, he's also potty trained and crate trained. He is shy at first and gets uncomfortable with strangers just coming at him. He is pretty good for a few rounds of fetch and will definitely get a little tubby if overfed. Please LOVE me! I am too ridiculously cute 🙂
