Brantley is a young energetic male Aussie! He is fine with adults but not children. He was relinquished because he nipped a child. Previous owners took him to the dog park where he played well with other dogs. He is still settling in at his foster home and has expressed no interest in playing with other dogs yet but he does want to train and work. Once he is focused, he is a very good boy. A quiet and routine oriented home is preferable. He will need someone who is structured, consistent and enjoys training. This boy jumps on people still! He prefers to be moving over still / cuddling. If you are interested in adopting Brantley, please fill out an adoption application http://
Meet Mr Wiggles. He is so happy, he never stops wiggling and he has a TAIL! This sweet pup was up at Upland shelter. Thank you to Lonna and team at Upland Animal Shelter for reaching out to help him. He came in as listed as an Aussie mix but it is becoming clear that he is most likely a great dane mix. Mr Wiggles is completely deaf. He will need a dedicated home who can communicate clearly and keep him safe. Living with a deaf dog is really about being proactive vs reactive. You can't chase them down or holler after them. For more info about training a deaf dog, visit http://www.deafdogs.org/training/. We are not sure how big he will be, best guess is about 60-70 lbs. To adopt Mr Wiggles, please fill out an adoption application http://aussierescuesandiego.org/foster…/adoptionapplication/

He LOVES other dogs big and small, young and old, has never fought with a dog anywhere and plays with everyone! He has been around children 8 and up on a regular basis and has been excellent, has met children younger and seems to be okay in general but not used to living with them. Bowie is energetic and loves to run and play, but is great in the house just laying around to, would be great with someone who runs, walks, bikes ,goes to the dog park, has another dog. He would thrive with an active lifestyle, he has had 6 months of personal trainer so responds to basic commands. If interested in being Bowie's forever home please fill out an adoption application http://aussierescuesandiego.org/foster-and-volunteer/adoptionapplication/
Kaya was homeless and starving until she crawled into a business and laid in the corner. Those caring people called the shelter (probably thought she was a coyote!). Shelter staff picked her up nursed her back from near death. Did you know that if you overfeed a starving dog, they could die? You should feed them small amounts frequently and gradually build up to normal amounts. It is a tricky process! Kaya is great now....no more anemia or heart murmur and bloodwork was perfect! We are so lucky to have her in our rescue. She is a sweet, playful girl who enjoys people, walks and other dogs. Her new favorite game is to fetch and play tug. There may be some training issues like she may not want to share food or chews with another dog but overall, she is a very good girl. If you are interested in adopting Kaya, please fill out an adoption application http://aussierescuesandiego.org/foster…/adoptionapplication/

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 still needs coaxing in new situations. Jewell has been great with her foster dog siblings and is very easy to live with. If you would like to give a shy dog a chance and think you want to adopt Jewell, please fill out an adoption application.Adopt Me

Ozzie is a large, blue merle, neutered, Aussie mix with a happy tail! My son adopted him at 7 weeks. He was told that his father was a "long-legged Australian Shepherd" and his mother was a Border Collie. Well, he appears to have something much bigger than BC, maybe German Shepherd, Catahoula Leopard dog, or even Great Dane? He was 25 inches tall at the shoulder and 70 pounds when measured 2 months ago. He is now 18 months old and too big and rambunctious for the 4 year old and new baby in my son's household. So we are looking for a better situation for Ozzie.
He is housebroken, crate trained, basic obedience trained and well-socialized. Ozzie loves all people, dogs, balls, water, and just about anything else he has ever met. He is untested on cats or livestock, but when he catches small animals in the yard he corners but does not kill. He does not dig, rarely barks and respects my 4 foot privacy fence.
He is in those teen months where he is an angel one minute and pushing the boundaries in the next. Therefore, he will only go to a household with no young children and experience handling large dogs. Please expect to tell me about your dog experience, your living situation, and what you are expecting in your dog. A re-homing fee may apply.Please reply by email through Craigslist. Thank you, Anne. https://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/pet/6157868222.html
Kingston & Rocky
KINGSTON is a 6 yr old neutered red tri male Aussie, possible mix, who clocks in about 80 pounds. He and his buddy, ROCKY, who is a 6 yr old neutered male Golden x Lab mix that is equally as big if not more so, are both in need of a home ASAP as their owners are having to move within 2 weeks. Both boys are housebroken and excellent with other dogs and people, Rocky is more used to kids than Kingston, both are good with cats, travel well and very playful and energetic, yet calm, affectionate and love to be with their family. Kingston is on Bromide for occasional seizures, but both are healthy in general. Wonderful playful companions that love to go! If you are interested in these boys, please contact owner Sarah: firstname.lastname@example.org (San Diego area)
DILLON is a 3 yr old neutered blue merle male Aussie looking for a new home. He is crate trained, used to sleeping in one at night, can play with both sexes of other dogs, but best not to live with another male dog. Dillon is a HIGH energy boy, with a lot of drive, needs a job to do! He is not an overly affectionate boy, too busy, so if that is what you are looking for, he's not the Aussie for you. Best home for him would be one with some Aussie experience and willingness to continue working with him on good manners and getting him enough exercise - he LOVES to swim, loves to carry toys around - he does know some basic obedience, but could use more socialization, he has a hard time with a lot of changes. He would do best in a home where someone is around a good portion of the time, he may bark excessively if left alone for long periods of time. Limited exposure to kids and seems okay but may have too much energy for the younger ones. If you are interested in this big boy, please contact Maria between the hours of 9 am and 4 pm @ 909-856-9795 (Riverside area) If you want to email her your phone number to have her call you back, here is her email addy: email@example.com
STAR is a 7-year-old spayed female Border Collie who is looking for a loving home that she can lavish her affection on and would really like to be able to sleep on your bed (with or without you). She is housebroken, not destructive at all, prefers to be inside, walks well on the leash, knows some basic obedience and a few tricks - very food motivated! She has the normal herding breed reservedness at first meeting strangers, not barky at all, just need to give her a bit of time to warm up. She is fine with other dogs, not interested in playing with them, but fine being around them. Has not been around cats, but she is a pretty low-key girl and may be okay if your cat is used to dogs and is monitored at first. No idea on kids, so we will not be placing her in a home with small children. If you are interested in this lovely girl, please fill out our adoption application: http://www.aussierescuesocal.
Colt needs a new home asap! He is not good with the other dogs he is living with. Per owner:
"Colt is an amazing, athletic, smart, eager to please dog who knows basic commands as well as functional ones like staying out of the kitchen. He needs a home with no other dogs and an owner who can make sure he is safe around other dogs. He loves to cuddle and would be an ideal dog for a VERY active person who likes to hike and run. He runs 3-5 miles a day and gets out to play with ChuckIt 2-3 time a day. He currently has 1/2 acre to run around and is on a raw diet due to skin allergies when I got him. He was neutered a little over a year ago in the hopes that it would minimize the aggression. He is a happy and healthy dog outside of the aggression and I desperately want to find him a home that I feel he will be properly cared for. We have a house cat whom he gets along with, they walk around together and sit near each other, though I never have them together unmonitored. Gets along great with kids, pukes in the car every time with or without food in his tummy"
Please contact Jenelle at 619)997-1439. Text is best.
Manny is a 4 year old neutered male Australian Shepherd. He is a big boned blue merle at about 70 pounds. He is a friendly, bold and outgoing boy. He would do best in a home as the only dog. Although he has dog friends he would be too pushy for a multi dog home. He is all dog. He would like a home with no cats, and because he wasn't raised around children, a child-free home is recommended. Training Manny is fun but requires a relationship with an Aussie savvy handler. The tug and treat method will not work for him without a mutually respectful and rewarding relationship. He is not hyper but does need an active owner who wants to hike, walk, bike and or swim with him, he will not be happy as a bored house pet. Our Behavior Specialist, Farren Mahone at Board N Behave, is offering a free training session, valued at $125.00, upon adoption. If you are interested in Manny, please fill out our adoption application: http://www.aussierescuesocal.com/applications/adoption-application/ - if you have one on file already, please email Karyl: firstname.lastname@example.org (Wildomar area) Check out Manny swimming at the beach! http://youtu.be/MHwUDFA3id8 best.

Bandit is a neutered male, roughly 8 years old, shepherdy-mix breed that was bailed out of a high kill shelter when he’d run out of time. He is a super sweet, easy-going boy, very friendly and wonderful with other dogs of all shapes and sizes. We have had a biopsy done of the skin on his nasal bridge and found out he does have Discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE) which is an autoimmune disease. He is under treatment for it currently, but there is no cure, it is something that will require a lifelong monitoring and possible treatment, so if you are not willing to deal with this, he is not the boy for you. That being said, Bandit is a wonderful boy and well worth the effort if you are willing! His eyes have also healed tremendously since this photo. If you are interested in Bandit, please follow the directions on our adoption application:http://aussierescuesocal.com/adoption_application.html and email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org (Palmdale area)
