***ADOPTED!!*** DALLAS – Red Merle Australian Shepherd – Male – 3 Y



Dallas came into our program as his owner was moving and he could not bring this handsome boy with him. Dallas spent a day or two at a local vet clinic until we could pick him up and we found out that he was super stressed, nervous and fearful in that kennel environment. We sent our wonderful trainer in and Dallas has spent 4 weeks with her and we now know what type of home will be best for this boy. šŸ™‚

Covering the basics, Dallas is wonderfully house broke and crate trained. He gets along with other dogs but he has not been around cats in the foster home or in his original home so probably a NO on cats. Because he tends to get stressed easily and is a bit fearful, we feel no toddlers or young children in his new home … teenagers on up will be fine.

Dallas warms up to strangers very slowly – he is very nervous and fearful of new people and new situations. We believe that Dallas was probably not well socialized as a puppy and it is our hope that his new owner will have the patience to understand what this boy is all about. When he is comfortable in his environment, Dallas is a very happy easy go lucky dog. He is incredibly sweet to his hoomans and loves, loves, loves to play ball. If you roll him the ball, he will push it with his nose and roll it back to you. He would rather have his tennis ball over a treat any day! Super smart and really wants to please … he will be so much fun to train with his owner once they build that strong bond & trust. Walks super great on leash as well!

Our trainer feels the perfect home for Dallas would be a family who knows and understands this breed. Preferably a quiet, country home as that is where he seems to be most comfortable. City life will overwhelm and over stimulate him and he will not be happy there. šŸ™

Neutered, up to date on shots and microchipped …. this handsome blue eyed wonder is going to make someone an amazing companion and we would love to see him learning new and wonderful things! Experienced owners only please – this boy is not for the first time owner!
