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.
"CHEWIE" is an adorable 2 yr old Aussie/mix, born on November 10, 2016, 63 pounds with a stub tail. He is housebroken, loves to play fetch and tug, loves to run with the bike, knows some basic obedience & tricks, and does well with other dogs at the dog park - loves to play with them. On leash, though, he might get excited when seeing another dog and really pull you to them. He is fairly good with the 2 kids he lives with (9 & 11) - affectionate, but may lightly growl at them if they repeatedly try to make him do something, or wake him up. He uses his voice to let you know when he wants alone time. Chewie is an insecure boy and needs a home that will do positive reinforcement training to build his self-confidence. In his current home, he is possessive/aggressive with the female owner to the point that the human male and Chewie are hostile to each other - fear-based on Chewie’s part, frustration on the human’s part. When she is not around, he is a wonderful dog to all, but when she is around, he is very anxious /obsessive and protective of her. He is currently on Clomicalm to help him with feeling less anxious about being around others and her at the same time. At 7 months old, he did nip a woman who was wrestling him, even though he growled to let her know he was not comfortable with what she was doing to him - he will do a warning growl if he is not comfortable with whatever it is you are trying to make him do. Very sweet boy, but needs a different type home! If you are interested in Chewie, please fill out our adoption application and we will forward it to his owner: https://www.aussierescuesocal.com/applications/adoption-application/

Maverick is housebroken and well behaved in the house, enjoys walks and hikes, is a friendly boy with both adults and kids, energetic but able to cuddle for hours. Unknown with cats and does fine with other dogs off leash, but on leash he is much more anxious when meeting them and barks and growls.

Meet "BONNIE" ! She is a 3-4 month old Aussie mix female,
weighs 11.6 Lbs now, will be a smaller dog as an adult.
Bonnie was found in abandoned complex in Compton California and sent to a high kill shelter. She was rescued and is now looking for a forever home. She is extremely friendly and playful which is surprising considering the harsh start she had. When we picked her up, she had Giardia and demodectic mange. Bonnie has responded great to here treatment and is doing wonderful in her foster home gaining nearly 3 Lbs since rescued. She is nearly potty trained with one accident a day at most now. Bonnie has responded great to training and can sit and wait at the door. She loves playing chase, fetch, snuggles and especially belly rubs. Bonnie is very people friendly and has met about 40 people in two weeks and loved each and every one of them. We feel the best forever home for Bonnie is one with a fenced in yard and an active owner that can provide a lot of love for this special puppy. She has been vaccinated and microchipped. If you are interested in Miss Bonnie, please fill out our adoption application and we will forward it to her foster parents: https://www.aussierescuesocal.com/applications/adoption-application/ (12-18)

"BEAU" is a neutered male Australian Cattle Dog Mix, he is 2.5 years old, fixed and current on shots (2/2/2018). Beau is a great dog, but has a very high energy level and some anxiety issues. He needs to be on a property with a lot of land and/or with an owner that is home more often. I walk and take Beau to the dog park as often as I can, but he still has a tremendous amount of energy. Beau does pretty well with other dogs although he can get nervous around large dogs. He has a companion dog with which he gets along well (my 4 year old Chihuahua mix Scooter). Beau has not shown aggression towards people except when I have taken him to the vet. However, he can be skittish around new people. He has received training and knows his basic commands. If you are interested in Beau, please contact owner Jaime at email@example.com (Bakersfield area) (10-18)
"SPAZZY" is a female, 5 year old, Toy sized Australian Shepherd, 10 lbs.
Spazzy is full of charm and happiness! She is a wigglebutt in motion all the time. Spazzy is a friendly, active and beautiful little girl. If you are looking for a tiny agility buddy, she just may be your partner. Spazzy needs a home where she can learn basic training skills. She was originally rescued from the commercial breeding industry and has not had alot of normal pet dog training. She is ok on leash and can mind her manners if you have clear communication and expectations. Because she has not been raised in a normal environment, we are not recommending she be taken to dog parks and such until she learns to come when called. She is vocal and will sing in delight when you engage her. If you would like to adopt Princess Spazzy, please fill out our adoption application http://aussierescuesandiego.org/foster…/adoptionapplication/ Please answer every question even if with "n/a" or it will not submit. We will respond to your application within 24 hours. If you do not hear from us, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org (10-18)
"EMMA" is a 2.5 year old spayed female, possible Aussie mix, about 50 pounds. She is housebroken, knows sit, stay, lay down, roll over, “bang!”(play dead) and she will howl with you. Her favorite things are fetch, swimming (pool and beach), chewing on toys/bones, sitting in the front window watching people walk by, and barking at the dogs that do also. She is good with other dogs (for the most part) when she is not on a leash or behind a fence/separated from other dogs, she’s only had issues with their other dog and dogs that snap/go after her first. She has a ton of energy but gets worn out quickly, after the beach or park or walk, she gets home and sleeps for hours. Unfortunately Emma has had food aggression problems since they got her as a puppy. They have worked with her and a trainer to try to correct the behaviors and she has not improved. Now she is getting aggressive with their other dog over food and toys. They have a 9 month old baby and are afraid of him (and their other dog) getting seriously injured. Emma’s aggression is usually apparent when there is food and/or treats in her possession. She has bitten the husband multiple times (drawn blood but not needed medical attention), the wife once, and she continues to get aggressive with their 20 lb pug mix (pins her to the ground by her neck and rustles her around, while growling). She has only broken skin on her one time, but more serious injury could happen. If you are able to give Emma a loving home with no other dogs or children, and are experienced with dealing with food aggression, please contact Jeannie @ 760-525-1576 or email: email@example.com If you'd like to fill out our adoption application, we will forward it to her owners: https://www.aussierescuesocal.com/applications/adoption-application/ (Costa Mesa) (10-18)
"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)

"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. She was very sick with pyometra, scabies, skin infection and more. They took excellent care of her and we rescued her as soon as we had an open spot.
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. Jewell has learned to walk on a leash but still needs coaxing in new situations. Jewell has been great with her foster dog siblings and is very easy to live with.
