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.
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.

This delightful boy is more than a pretty face. Please read entire post and apply if you can meet his needs.
Age: 7 months old
Breed: Mini Aussie
Weight: 15 lbs
This adorable boy can be the sweetest most fun partner but he needs someone who will commit to training and working with him. Zippy was relinquished by a family when he began nipping and barking at their toddler. He was previously placed in a 6 week board and train program because he was fearful around strangers. After he came back, he was even more afraid of everyone and his behaviors were worse. Zippy has been responding well to his new routine and positive reinforcement training. He is learning to think and cope. Being a teenager, he is still learning and gets over excited easily. It will take more time, consistency and training to develop good manners. Zippy is reactive to new people and new dogs. He will lunge and nip if someone reaches out before he gets to know them and respects them. He will need a quiet home with a fenced yard just for him. Zippy loves to go in the car, do Zoomies, play with his toys, train and help his person do chores. He is not used to being left alone for long periods of time. Zippy needs a home with someone who is a strong leader and is experienced working with reactivity. He will need structure and leadership.
Zippy is not recommended for young children or busy households. Unknown with cats. Needs to be the only dog in his home. If you can meet Zippy’s needs and commit to his development, please fill out our adoption application https://aussierescuesandiego. org/foster-and-volunteer/ adoptionapplication/
Starla is extremely sweet and loves every person she has ever met. Our problem is that when she is hungry, tired or in need of exercise, she exhibits some resource guarding behavior, and will sometimes snap at our smaller dog, Max. This has on occasion resulted in medical treatment due to puncture wounds. She has never seriously injured Max, but these instances have created a high level of stress within our household, so we feel it's necessary to separate them. Max was our pet first, so even though we love her dearly we are choosing to re-home Starla.
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.

Nixon is very good inside of the house. He rarely barks, is potty trained, knows the difference between what he can and can’t chew on, and wants to be a lap dog, he is also good about staying in his bed. His human parents recently had a baby and he has become jealous. He has nipped at both of his parents but never bit. He has had a lot of training and the trainer thinks that he needs to be with someone who will keep him active and also be in charge. Nixon likes to think that he is in charge and if you stay on top of his discipline he does great. He is staying with his "Grandparents" right now but they rescue and forever foster senior dogs from Frosted Faces. His parents are looking for a family who have the time to spend with him. He loves to work and is incredibly smart and could learn whatever you wanted to teach him. He enjoys being outside so you would have to have a large fenced yard. He has learned to get along with his little senior dog so I think he would adjust to another dog. Nixon is already microchipped. If you are interested in Nixon, please email: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org (Ramona area)
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 🙂
