Duncan ARPH #13586
 
Duncan is located in Bedford, TX and it is required that you travel there to meet him in person to adopt, no exceptions. We do need the entire party to be involved when meeting available dogs, including every family member and dog(s) that currently live in your home.

Duncan is still a youngster in a big, handsome body! This approximately 15-18 month old black tri male is an easy-going house companion --- totally house-broken, fully vetted, and crate-trained. He is still working on his leash-breaking skills, however.

Duncan does well with other dogs of similar size that like to play and run. He enjoys a good game of fetch but is still learning the benefits of bringing it back every time. He does not have any tolerance for the feline persuasion, so a home without cats is required. However, he does do very well with older children that cannot accidentally be knocked over.

While he has a lower energy level for a young Aussie, he can still be a little naughty at times... stealing a shoe here or there, and trying his hand at counter-surfing. A family that understands he is still learning will be necessary for Duncan to thrive.

This sweetheart is just waiting for the perfect family! Please submit an application for consideration!

Duncan's Rep is Laura Kempf, aussie330@aol.com

 
         
 
          
 





   
 Jingles ARPH #13539

Jingles is currently located in Groesbeck, TX and it is required that you travel there to meet her in person to adopt, no exceptions. We do need the entire party to be involved when meeting available dogs, including every family member and dog(s) that currently live in your home.

Jingles is an approximately 4-year-old purebred Australian Shepherd that came to our organization with her 3 puppies when a breeder could no longer care for them.

She is still relatively new to our organization, but is making wonderful progress.

She is currently being treated for heartworms and will be available closer to the end of July.

Please check back for additional details!

Scotch ARPH #13590


Scotch is currently located in North Richland Hills, TX and it is required that you travel there to meet him in person to adopt, no exceptions. We do need the entire party to be involved when meeting available dogs, including every family member and dog(s) that currently live in your home.

Scotch is a handsome blue merle boy at approximately 18-months-old. He is fully vetted and is already 100% house-broken, crate-trained, and does quite well on a leash.

Scotch is super smart.... almost "scary" smart! He catches onto everything only after 1 or 2 tries, and learns the household routine VERY quickly. The one who adopts Scotch should enjoy training, as he thrives off being able to think and problem-solve, and enjoys both treat and toy rewards.

After given a short opportunity to bond, Scotch becomes very loyal very quickly. He loves "his person" and will not shy away from sounding the alarm when someone knocks on the door or approaches the home. At times, however, the visual stimulus of a stranger approaching can cause him to bark over-dramatically, especially when on a leash. Due to this, Scotch will need continued training and guidance with someone that knows how to lower the reactive-threshold for leash frustration and help him resort to a less dramatic alternative when greeting strangers. He does MUCH better greeting strangers inside the home, off-leash.

He enjoys playing and rough-housing with other dogs, but doesn't appreciate other dogs that are bully or pushy in nature, so a fun female is likely the best recipe for success with him.

Scotch does have a bit of prey drive (particularly hunting for squirrels), so a home without cats and small pocket pets is required. Due to his herding and mouthy tendencies (he is a young herding pup after all!), a home without children is also required.

Scotch does a fantastic job with listening and focusing, and all he wants to do is please you. While he may talk back here and there, he is a very affectionate and cuddly boy that has shown respect of all house-hold items. At first, he did not show any toy drive, but as he has grown comfortable here, his interest in toys is beginning to show and he's even bringing the toy back nearly every time! He is obsessed with nylabones and becomes very "prancy" and animated when given one!

Right now, Scotch knows how to "sit" and "shake" as well as "release" his toy. We are working on "stay" and are continually working on how to approach strangers and welcome new people around the home. This will be something his future family will need to understand and continue to address, as well.

Please check back for more details!
