Adoption donation includes transport and all vaccinations, except for the Lyme—therefore, the dogs will not need to get any vaccinations for the first year. Our vet has recommended that all dogs under 6 months not to spay or neuter the pups because they are too young and their bodies are not fully developed.
ADOPTED ON 10-07-17 – This beautiful boy is bubbling over with so much personality that it’s hard to believe he has had such a rough road so far in his short, little life. Part of an unwanted litter, which is so common in many Southern states, Augy and his siblings were surrendered to a rescue group to help prevent them from becoming statistics in the ever-growing problem of homeless animals. These dogs are often neglected, abused, or just dumped by careless, heartless people. Luckily, there are also many kind and caring people who are willing to step up and fight this epidemic.
Augy greets his foster mom every day with a hug. He has a special way of shaking his head as he runs to her that is adorable, and snuggles her shoulder for as long as she will let him. At 6 months, he has discovered water, and will try to get into his water bowl if the baby pool is not filled up for him. He is smart and curious, yet never complains when asked to do something, including posing for photos. He loves all dogs, yet he enjoys the company of humans. Augy would do great with children over four and people who might work from home or be retired. He is not a high-energy dog so he would easily adapt to most homes.
Augy came to us with a burn on his back. It is unclear what happened, but might have been from the undercarriage of a car or some type of chemical burn. Regardless of his mishap, his scar healed and his long silky coat is growing over it nicely. As Augy grows, it is clear that he is a Miniature Australian Shepherd mix; his markings are gorgeous and his little brown feet are adorable. He is about 23 pounds right now, so he will grow into a very nice sized dog.
Augy is learning quickly. He does well in a crate and car. He needs leash work, as all puppies do, and does very well with children. He ignores the cat in the foster home, however, that is not does not mean that he does well with cats; but shows no aggression or fear. Augy would be a wonderful addition to any family. Consider opening your hearts to this special guy. He will bring years of happiness and lots of love to any home.
