Jordan is a sweet and friendly wigglebutt who has not experienced much outside his home. He was with a commercial breeder who had too many dogs. The dogs were taken care of and handled but have not had much if any previous training and they have not been exposed to neighborhood / city noises. Jordan does well with meeting new people but may need a moment or two to figure it all out. He has been friendly with the other dogs he has met at his foster home. We recommend that he live with another female dog who is well balanced, tolerant and friendly. We recommend that he live with another female dog who is well balanced, tolerant and friendly.

** COURTESY POST ** (Tustin area)
Isabella “Bella” is a 9 year old spayed female Aussie-Border Collie mix (?) who is in need of a loving home with no children and ideally no other dogs. Bella was adopted from a high kill shelter when she was a puppy. Bella has been around other dogs most her life in the home, but within the last year has shown elevated aggression and herding towards the other household female dog that has resulted in breaking skin on numerous occasions and a home dynamic change. Unfortunately she is also not good with kids and her owners are going to be taking next steps as a family – as such they are heartbreakingly seeking a permanent loving home that can provide her with what they can’t any longer. She is a sweet girl with a love of playing ball, belly rubs, and following you around. She’s happy to sit by your side and keep you company wherever you go. Bella weighs 39 lbs and enjoys walks with little distraction but would need a yard to fetch and play with toys so no condo/apartments. She sleeps inside at the foot of the bed and spends her entire day inside in AC which helps with her sensitive skin. During peak allergy season, she is known to rub her fur until raw and would do best in a home that can give baths and brush often – she is wonderful in the bath and with the hair dryer, but has sensitive feet. She also does not mind shirts/sweaters which helps when her skin is very sensitive. She also does perfectly fine at the groomers. Bella is not destructive (except tearing up toys), she waits for her food when told to sit and can walk on a loose lead when there are no major distractions. She does not get carsick, does not like the vacuum, and will warn you if someone is at the door. She is very smart and would do well with owners who can be very structured, routine, and patient with a passion for training and an understanding of the herding breed needs. She has a heart warming smile and will love you with all she has. If you are interested in Bella, please fill out our adoption application and we will forward it over to her owners: https://www.aussierescuesocal.com/applications/adoption_v2/ (Tustin area)

Coal is approximately 5 months old, and was bailed out of a high kill shelter with his siblings. He and his siblings were ” rescue only” as they were very frightened and did not do well in the shelter environment. He is now neutered and ready for his new home! We think Coal is maybe Lab and Border Collie mix…? maybe some German Shepherd in there….? He will be a big boy as you can see from his pictures. He now weighs about 35 pounds!Coal is a very active boy with lots of energy and loves to play with his foster siblings. He can “chill” when needed and is not too destructive in the house, but like any puppy, he can and will get into mischief and is in the chewing stage at 5 months old. Very typical for a growing puppy. Coal Loves the water and likes to play in his kiddie pool, he needs a yard to play in so no apartments or condos etc. – a fenced yard is a must! He is crate trained and sleeps well in his crate all night without accidents. He is also paper trained and if left alone with no one to let him out he will use the paper or potty pads, but if you have a doggy door, he knows how to use it. Coal can be reserved and very afraid of strangers initially, and may take him a while to warm up to you, but once he knows you, is a very affectionate pup and loves attention. Because of this, we are looking for a quieter home with no small children please, and only people who have had herding dogs in the past and are dog savvy about socializing in a positive manner and not pushing him into meeting people. Coal is learning to walk on a leash but also will require more training in that area, being a puppy it is going to take time for him to be consistent with what he learns but he loves to please you, so enjoys the learning! Coal does require someone who is home a lot and not be an outside backyard dog. He would also do well with another dog to play with, we don’t know how he is with cats or other animals tho.
If you feel you might be a good match for Coal, please fill out our adoption application: https://www.aussierescuesocal.com/applications/adoption_v2/ – if we have your adopt app on file, just drop us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you are interested. (Norco area)
Millie is a beautiful 5 yr old spayed female Aussie mix, about 55 pounds, that needs a home where there are no other pets. She is housebroken and well behaved in the house, She is initially reserved, even shy, of meeting strangers, but once she knows you, she is very sweet and loves attention – loves to follow you around. She also loves long walks and does well on leash, has a medium energy level and enjoys car rides. She knows basic commands like sit, down, shake, roll over, come, no and stay. Millie is NOT appropriate for dogs parks though – she was originally adopted out of a shelter and at first was okay with the other dogs in the household, but as time has gone by, she is getting aggressive with them – she also will go after other dogs when out on walks/dog park situations. She does respond well to verbal correction but she just does not relax and enjoy that type of situation. She can be around other dogs that are submissive after properly introducing them with a leash on, but should not live with any other dogs or cats. If you are interested in Millie, please fill out our adoption application and we will forward it to her owner: https://www.aussierescuesocal.com/applications/adoption_v2/ – drop us an email if we already have your adopt app and we will forward it on: email@example.com (Pinon Hills area)

Please read information and if you are a good fit for Loki’s needs, fill out our adoption application. We will forward to his owner.
Age: 8 years old
Weight: 51 lbs
Gender: Neutered male
– quiet home
– no young children
– secure yard where he can play ball
Per owner: Loki has at times become hyper-excited from stimuli such as things running past him or sudden moves. His tries to stop the action by nipping at what or whoever is moving. He’s never attacked anyone, but it’s very aggressive looking. There was an incident with our two year old daughter, which scared us. We’re worried that she’ll get hurt one day since she is now opening doors on her own. So, as otherwise awesome and loved as he is, we just can’t take any more chances. He’s very playful, loves to play chase with tennis balls. Although he loves to play with our female Aussie, we believe that he would like to be an only dog, with mature owners. Loki rides great in the car. Will sit, lay down, and come. Also responds to three claps to come.Perfect house manners, but won’t clean up his own hair. The dog park can be a bit too stimulating for him. He barks at other dogs when on leash, but not off. Off leash he runs over to introduce and play. If you think you might be a good fit, please fill out our adoption application: https://aussierescuesandiego.org/foster-and-volunteer/adoptionapplication/
COURTESY POST ** (Murrieta area)
From her owner: “This is so hard to do but I’m needing to rehome my spayed Australian Shepherd x Queensland Heeler Mix. Bailey is about 6 years old, I found her as a stray when she was around 2. Bailey is unable to stay at my moms house and due to my work/school schedule im unable to care for her the way she deserves. She’s currently at a babysitters house and I see her when I can but not the way she deserves and needs. Bailey is an active dog, needing daily walks she’s high energy! But also she’s the dog that will nap for 4 hours because she’s so lazy! She’s the best dog out there in need of a LOVING home. Bailey is great with kids, great with cats, and good with most dogs as long as they can meet and sniff at first! Located near Murrieta, CA Please let me know if you’re interested in possibly adopting this sweet girl – 951-467-9877”
Trip is a 12 yr old neutered male red tri male mini Aussie – he is overweight at 37 pounds, but considering he was up to 50 pounds at one point, he’s doing much better now! He is currently being boarded, his owner is in hospice care and no one in the family wants him. He is housebroken, used to being primarily indoors, and walks on a loose leash, does well with other dogs (as long as it isn’t a puppy jumping in his face!), good with strangers, men, women, and although he has not lived with any children, the few times he’s been around kids he’s been okay, no idea on cats. The best situation for Trip would be a home where someone is home most of the time and can take him on some slow walks a couple times a day to help him continued to loose the weight and move his joints. He is a super sweet boy that would love to hang out with his person as much as he can

“CLEO” is an adorable 1 yr old spayed female Cattle Dog mix, weighing in at 25 pounds. Cleo is on Keppra (roughly every 8 hours – she takes it eagerly with peanut butter ) for seizures, and in the 8 months she has been in our rescue she has had one when some of her doses of keppra were missed. We’ve had a complete work-up done at the veterinarian when we first got her, then another pre-op panel done just before she was spayed – all looks good! She is a very happy energetic girl, friendly towards people and other dogs, even sometimes being very submissive and rolling on her back. She can be okay with cats that are not afraid of dogs and stand their ground, but if they hiss and run, she’s after them! She has been fine with kids but with her previous history of seizures, we do not want to place her in a home that has a high traffic/chaotic pattern to it, she gets wound up easy enough as it is – if it runs, CHASE IT is her motto! She is housebroken and rides well in the car, enjoys walks/hikes. She does have the Cattle Dog sharp shrill bark for attention and when she is really wound up – because of that, absolutely NO apartments, townhomes, or condos – house with plenty of room and a large fenced yard is a must. Cleo definitely needs a home where someone is home most of the day, and we recommend having a second playful dog in the house to keep her occupied and tired – she is a high energy girl and does much better when she gets PLENTY of exercise both physically and mentally – continued training is a must with Cleo, she is still an adolescent and has a bit to go before can be consider an adult. She enjoys learning tricks and playing games, she is a busy girl and needs a home that can understand that and will work with her. So far, she does not resource guard anything here, is quick to back off if another dogs claims something, but she does play like a Cattle Dog – run, chase and slam is her classic style, may try to nip at another dog in a ‘drive by’ style of play, but has not nipped at people at all – however if she followed any closer she would be wearing my shoes.

Duke is a 6 yr old red tri neutered male Aussie mix, weighing about 70 pounds. He is a very friendly boy, with strangers, men, women, kids, other dogs too. He is housebroken, uses a dog door, is well behaved in the house and walks well on the leash. His owner has this to say about him:
“I am unable to meet his needs due to changes in life circumstances. He has a lot of anxiety and can’t be left alone for too long. I am looking for someone who can walk him regularly and is home often. A fenced yard is a must. He is a runner. Needs to always be on a leash. He wears a thunder vest when anxious. He’s very mellow and hangs out inside and outside on his own terms. Gets a walk or a hike 5ish times a week. But now is left home alone and unattended lately, my daughter moved for school, so he is home alone and barks, whines and is stressed a lot. He barks and can dig if he hears and sees wildlife.
He would love a home with his human chilling out. Cuddling. Walks. Dog parks. Likes playing with dog buddies. Car rides as long as he can be in the front seat. Duke is a great dog. He needs a human who is home regularly. He is a sweetheart and a lover. Easy going and calm if someone is with him. He loves walks and hikes. He is very anxious when left alone and unattended for more than 2-4 hours. He will bark and dig if left alone for long periods of time. He really is a great dog in so many ways. Just needs stability and a schedule. When home with his human he lays around and naps on his dog bed or couch. Likes to sleep next to the bed. He absolutely hates crates/ kennels. He will always run away if off leash or a door is left open. A good fence is a must!” If you feel you are the right match for Duke, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org (Lake Elsinore area)
Bolt is a one year old Australian Cattle Dog/Border Collie mix. He was picked up as a stray in Long Beach and given the name “Bolt” at the shelter because he looks just like the Disney character. He has been in foster care about 4 months, and gets along well with his foster sisters, two border collies and a collie mix. He is sweet, energetic, fast and smart. He loves to play tug, hike and has started agility training. He loves to go to the park and will go say hello to nearly every human there, After a half hour or so of running, he crashes for the rest of the afternoon until it’s time for his evening park visit. Needless to say, Bolt needs physical AND mental stimulation and would do well in a working home with someone who has experience with herding breeds.
Although Bolt is deaf, he knows hand signals for sit, stay, come, good dog, bad dog, spin right and spin left. He was quite nippy in the beginning, but that has substantially subsided. He is crate trained and house trained, likes most other dogs, but can become a bit overwhelmed by dogs that are very large or play too rough. He would do well in a household with other dogs of similar size and temperament. Like many herding dogs, he might not do well with small children. Bolt likes to cuddle and lay next to his human.
He is chipped and neutered. He had FHO surgery in April, but has recovered to the point that no one would ever guess he had been injured. Now he is ready for his forever home. If you feel you are a good match for this handsome fella, please fill out our adoption application: https://www.aussierescuesocal.com/applications/adoption_v2/ – if we have yours on file already, just drop us an email: email@example.com (Long Beach area)
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.
If you are interested in Eddie, please fill out our adoption application and we will forward it on to his owner: https://www.aussierescuesocal.com/applications/adoption_v2/ – if we have your adopt app already, drop us an email of your interest: firstname.lastname@example.org (Alta Loma area)
Cali is a 4 yr old spayed blue female Aussie with two blue eyes and about 50 pounds. She is housebroken and well behaved in the house, loves to run and go on walks, thrives with attention and wants a job to do. Cali loves to snuggle and loves kids, but she is very anxious at times and this makes her impulsive, she can and has bitten if she feels threatened or if you try to take something from her/out of her mouth – she will get very focused/fixated on something and may bite if you try and distract her or get between it and her. However she is not aggressive with food and even lets other animals eat out of her bowl before she does. She is good with other dogs, no idea on cats, is friendly and high energy. She loves playing in the water and the snow. If you are interested in adopting Cali please fill out our adoption application: https://www.aussierescuesocal.com/applications/adoption_v2/ (Laguna Niguel area)
Duke & Duchess
With ARSC –
Duke and Duchess are a pair of possible Aussie mixes – no idea with what, sorry. Duke is a black tri neutered male with 2 blue eyes and a bobbed tail, Duchess is a spayed female, white with red patches, one blue eye and the other looks like it may not have developed fully. They are about 18 months to 2 years old, they were relinquished to a rescue because they kept digging out (we got them from the other rescue, so have never talked to the original owners), so a secure fenced yard is a must. They are very bonded, so please do not ask if we will separate; they are social, both with humans and other dogs, and seem to be kid friendly – but no young kids, they may get knocked over! They are active, alert and playful, have a good start on being housebroken, just really nice fur-kids! If you are interested in this delightful pair, please fill out our adoption application: https://www.aussierescuesocal.com/applications/adoption_v2/ (Palmdale area)
COURTESY POST—Kulture is with her owner, not with rescue
Kulture is a 2 year old Aussie Mix. She would thrive in a home where she is the only pet as she is an Alpha female. She is a sweet dog full of energy, her favorite thing to do is play ball. She is very smart and likes to show off all the tricks she knows: sit, lay, stay, play dead, roll over, paw, high five, spin. She also loves to do agility training and loves challenge and puzzle toys. She is very nervous and anxious around new people but once she knows you she is very loving and affectionate. She is an amazing dog but in need of rehoming due to us having another Alpha female and they recently got into a dog fight so we believe it is best to rehome Kulture since she would do best in a home by herself. She loves taking trips to the beach and playing fetch in the water. She is crate trained, potty trained, and has completed basic obedience courses. She could use some more strict training with heel and when walking on leash. She is very reactive to other dogs. but this comes from fear and anxiousness. She is great with my sister’s baby but that may be because they grew up together. She is spayed, and up to date on all her vaccines, she is also microchipped. She is definitely an indoor house dog but loves to play outside with you during the day. Kulture is a bigger dog weighing 77lbs. The family that wishes to rehome her will receive her crate, bed, toys, food, favorite treats, balls to play fetch, collar, leash vaccination records, and microchip info.
I hope to find her the perfect home so a phone interview and home check will be required. And questions or if you would like more info and pictures or videos please feel free to contact me: (209) 672-5207. (San Jose area)
Please contact owner, Lindsey, directly if you can help Lola by giving her a furever home.
Age: 6 years
Weight: 70 lbs
Lola needs a new home with no kids (or older kids that can understand boundaries with dogs). She would do best in a home where she is the only dog or there are other calm, non dominant dogs. She great with our 4 cats. The reason we are rehoming her is because we have a six month old baby who is starting to move and although Lola loves kids, she likes them on her own terms. She does not like being approached by when she is sleeping and will growl/snap if scared.
Lola is a quirky girl who takes time to warm up with new people. She does great with all women but it takes a little longer for her to relax with men. Once she is comfortable with someone, she is a snuggler! She loves to be pet and will sit right next to you. Lola enjoys walks, fiesta island and is very food motivated. She likes the dog park but does best when she can approach other dogs on her own terms. We have worked with a trainer to help calm her anxiety and can show you the things we have learned that have made her a happy girl. She is potty trained, spayed and up to date on her vaccinations/vet check ups.
We love her so much and want to make sure the home she goes to is the right place for her. Please text or call me if you think you might be a good fit for her! Lindsey 619-201-4473
Peace of Mind Dog Rescue in Monterey, CA reached out for help in finding homes for a couple of senior boys looking for that special home – Anyone out there that has room in their hearts and home for a sweet sweet senior boy?
Remmy: Australian Shepherd Mix, 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.
If you’d like to see more pictures of Remmy or are interested in adopting this gentleman, please click here and follow their instructions: https://www.peaceofminddogrescue.org/dog.php?id=2578
Age: 16 years
Breed: Border Collie Mix
This is Cookie, at 16 years young an old lady with a lot of spring in her step! Our best guess is that she is a border collie mix. She certainly has the intelligence and energy level of the breed although she’s also capable of a lot of mellow sleeping since she is a senior.
Cookie is easy to have around the house. She gets along fine with other dogs and cats in the home. She will bark at strangers but is friendly once she knows everyone is safe. I would not trust her around young children because she can be a little reactive to certain kinds of physical contact.
Cookie loves to go for walks. Truly loves it! The one challenge is that when she sees other dogs while she is out she gets very stimulated and will sort of fling herself at their faces. So she needs a strong hand on walks. She’s also pretty nearly deaf so she needs to be on leash.
This is a girl with a lot of life in her even at her age for someone willing to meet her needs.”
