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.
He has obedience, agility and herding training. He would also be great at rally and LOVES lure chasing, or chasing anything with a fluffy tail (cats included)! He has a great drive and the perfect “off switch”. He loves long daily walks, playing fetch, tug of war and is great in the car on trips. Outside of working, he loves every opportunity to be a lap dog until he gets too hot! He gives gentle kisses and big hugs. He is crate trained and house broken. ASCA/AKC registered. Current on all vaccines.
He has one problem in that he loves his humans and their affection too much and will guard it from other dogs. We need to to rehome him because despite 18 months of effort with trainers, we cannot prevent him and our other male Aussie from fighting.
He needs to be the center of someone’s world, so we are looking for a single dog home. It breaks our heart to part with him, but we feel that it is best for both dogs. He is available immediately. He needs a yard to play in and loving owner that wants to continue to train with him and do the things he loves. Preferably someone experienced with the breed.

Sophie is approximately 14 years old, female, spayed. She was a family surrender to a shelter in Los Angeles and was housed there for six months prior to adoption by my spouse's mother. Due to my spouse's mother's death, we are now fostering her in search of a new home for her. She is not compatible with cats (we have two). She comes on strong initially with other dogs, but mellows out after time and a few introductions. She loves to go on walks and heals well, plays ball and continues to have moderate to high energy. She is an excellent companion, although she loves to sleep on the couch and cuddles on pillows. If you are interested in this senior gal, please fill out our adopt app: https://www.aussierescuesocal.com/applications/adoption_v2/ and we will forward it on to her caregivers (Torrance/South Bay area) (1-20)
Age: 3 years old
Breed: Australian Shepherd
Weight: 52 lbs
"WALKER" is a snuggly guy once he gets to know you. He will need an experienced Aussie savvy home. Walker has been friendly with his foster family and volunteers but often needs to be introduced to new people carefully. He is not comfortable when people stare at him and he definitely does not want to own people’s insecurities. He will bark or growl to show he is not comfortable. Walker is also noise sensitive to loud noise like fireworks, gun shots and thunder. He has been great with other dogs and is very friendly. Walker will need a family with no children and a home with a secure fenced yard. Another friendly dog would be ideal but not required. He is unknown with cats.

"JEWELL" is an 8 years old; Female; Mix, short wavy hair; 45 lbs Jewell is truly a jewel. She is a mix of several breeds making her a one of a kind
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 eyes. She is still very shy with new people but usually will take food. Jewell has learned to walk on a leash but may need coaxing in new situations. Jewell has been great with her foster dog siblings and is very easy to live with. She is not good with cats! Because she is so shy, we ask for a home with at least a small yard and with no children since they will overwhelm her.
If you would like to adopt Jewell and give her a loving home, please fill out our adoption application http://bit.ly/ARSD-AdoptionApp. Answer every question even if with “n/a” or it will not submit. We will respond to your application within 48 hours. If you do not hear from us, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
"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)
