We always have animals looking for new homes, many of which have “special needs”. Never under-estimate the love an adopted animal has to give.
Take part in this rewarding and memorable experience!
Thank you for your interest in adopting!
Before completing our online application please read the following:
Our adoption process involves multiple steps and it typically takes up to 2 weeks from the time we receive your application to the time your adoption is finalized. This process can take longer when puppies are involved since no puppy adoptions are finalized until they are spayed/neutered. We reserve the right to deny any application without explanation.
1.We do not normally adopt to adults under 25 years of age, however, exceptions will be made based on the organization’s assessment of the individual maturity of the adopter.
2.All of our dogs and/or puppies are in foster homes. We do not schedule private “Meet and Greets” without a processed application. Our Adoption Fee starts at $250.
3.We can adopt an animal ‘out of state’, but you must be willing to travel to where the pet is being fostered, and transport the animal yourself after the adoption.
4.We cannot place a hold on a dog for you. If you are not ready to adopt, please do not complete an application until you are ready to do so.
5.If you have other animals (dogs/cats) in your home, they must be up-to-date on vaccinations, heartworm testing (dogs), and on monthly heartworm preventative (dogs). We will verify this with your veterinarian.
6.If you do not own the property you live in, you must provide the owner/landlord’s name and phone number. We will contact them to verify that you are permitted to have the pet you are applying for.
7.If you are getting ready to move or are in the process of moving, please do not complete an application until after you are settled in your new home. Please be advised that we reserve the right to conduct a Home Visit if we feel it is necessary before placing an animal with you.
8.Please make sure to fully complete your application; leaving questions blank or not including phone numbers will delay your application (this especially true when we post puppies, incomplete applications are not processed until last).
9.Once your online application is completed, it can take our volunteers 5 days to process it (longer if we have a litter of puppies posted). If we have questions about your application, we will call or email you. You must respond in order to get your application fully processed.
10.Adoption application approval means you are approved to adopt an animal from us, it does not mean you are necessarily approved for the animal you applied for. There may be specific circumstances in your home that do not make it a good fit for one animal, but it may be a fine fit for another.
11.Once your application is approved by the processers it is sent to the person fostering the dog you have applied for. They will make the decision on whether the animal that you applied for is the right fit for you and your home. They may also choose to initially contact you via email or phone. If you do not respond promptly to their email or phone call, they will move on to the next applicant.
12.Once you have met the dog and the adoption is approved, we have a minimum 24-hour waiting period before the adoption is finalized.
13.Once your new pet is home with you, we recommend taking then to a veterinarian of your choice within 10-14 days of adoption for a general check-up, especially for dogs or puppies that have been recently spayed or neutered.

Want a handsome Border Collie? Check out Tuff! Tuff is a beautiful Double Merle, born as a result of two Merle dogs being bred together. He is completely blind; has some hearing loss, but he will inspire you with his enjoyment of life! Tuff does not want a home that is going to feel sorry for him, nor one that will lock him away thinking they are keeping him safe. He simply does not know he is different. He loves car rides, companionship, walks, hiking and exploring.... just like any other dog! Tuff will have your house and yard mapped out in a couple of days, just don't rearrange your furniture too often. Watching him, you will soon forget that Tuff is special needs dog. Tuff is housebroken, walks well on a leash, and rides great in the car. An ideal home would take him to training to strengthen the bond, learn to communicate effectively, and help him with his social skills. He is an absolute love and will jump on anyone in his excitement. Although Tuff lives with several foster dogs, he would do much better in a quieter home with no children and perhaps only one other (preferably female) doggie sibling. Tuff does require a fenced yard. Tuff is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, micro-chipped, current on flea and heartworm preventative. He is being fostered in the St. Louis area. If you are interested in providing Tuff a forever home with lots of love, please fill out an application at http://www.speakstlouis.com/forms/adoption-application/
Hey everyone! Tryston here, or as mom likes to call me Sir Grumps-A-Lot! I am a stunning four-year-old Australian Shepherd who came to Speak! St. Louis in April 2017. I was in horrible condition! My fur was matted, I smelled awful, had intestinal worms, had trachea damage and was heartworm positive. If that isn't enough, I am also blind. I was not born blind, but instead, I am blind as a result of a systemic infection such as distemper. My blindness was totally preventable had I been given my yearly vaccinations. My previous owner failed me on almost every possible level. As a result of such abuse, I have minimal trust in humans, especially women. I do not bite, but will growl and act very scary, so people will leave me alone. The good news about me: Living with my foster family has given me much more confidence. I am always comfortable with my foster dad, but for some reason, ladies make me a bit nervous. Every time my mom would pet me or talk to me I would growl. Nothing serious, just a little "hey leave me alone." Thankfully, my mom didn't leave me alone and she would continue to baby me and sing to me until one day I realized she wasn't so bad. It took a very long time but now every time I hear her voice I do little tap dances and wiggle my butt. I get so excited to "see" her! She now calls me Fred Astaire because she loves my dancing! That better than Sir Grumps-A-Lot, I think! Dad, on the other hand, can pet me as much as he wants! I would love to stay with my foster family, but mom and dad think I would do better in a quieter home. I actually live with seven other dogs, and let me tell you, they are crazy. Six of them are Border Collies! (What were mom and dad thinking?) Don't they know that Aussies are better than Border Collies. Hrmph! So what would I like in my new home you ask? Well, for starters, I would just like a parent(s) who simply love me for me. Maybe a steak dinner, on occassion, but nothing too extravagant. I would do best as either being an only dog or maybe with one calm, confident dog. I do live with cats, but I get excited and bark at them. Since I get nervous easily, I would also do better without children. Mom thinks I would do best with a very dog-savvy person that could deal with my anxiety and reactivity. I guess this is a lot to ask, but what I give in return is the best buddy in the world who will totally adore you. I am also pretty gorgeous, so I will make great eye candy! What do you say, will you give me a chance? Please fill out an application at http://www.speakstlouis.com/forms/adoption-application/
Bennett is a wonderful 8 year old boy who has had a rough life and knew very little of the world around him; until recently. Last year, he was rescued by Speak and he now knows people are kind, he always gets his meals and things are good. Because Bennett is still learning the world around him, he is hesitant with new people but he warms up nicely. He is deaf (but hears some sounds) and possibly vision impaired in his right eye but he doesnt let anything stop him. He is good on a leash once that trust is there. He knows some touch and hand signals for come, and sit and no. He loves getting pets â all over especially under his chin and a nice massage on his sides is lovely when heâs sleepy. He is not food aggressive but enjoys a good meal. He would ideally do best in a home as the only dog or with another very mellow non dominant dog; as he will make a âmean faceâ on occassion. This is not him being aggressive, just simply saying âI donât see so well, and this is my spaceâ. Bennett is a furry shadow and enjoys being with his people! Little kids are not his cup of tea, as he gets pretty frightened of all that movement from tiny people so a home without a lot of commotion is certainly ideal. Bennett would make a lovely companion for an older couple whoâs kids are out of the house, or for someone in a quieter household. He enjoys long naps during the day, but isnât too fond of being left alone a lot. He does not need a crate being the lounge lizard he isâ¦ he is fine with his over-sized memory foam bed that is so comfy. He is potty trained and will do his business on command as soon as heâs outside. Bennett is a truly wonderful, amazing, and handsome man who is looking for a place he can relax, unwind and enjoy the little things in life which he so deserves. If you are interested in this loyal, loving guy who simply wants to be your best friend, please apply here: https://www.speakstlouis.com/forms/adoption-application/
Introducing Little Miss Personality! Darling little Carly is a young double merle Australian Shepherd / Border Collie mix who is the result of merle to merle (color pattern) breeding which causes some hearing and vision impairments. Her disabilities were totally preventable! Carly is a total lovebug and has a vibrant personality but will settle down and enjoys taking a snooze in her foster momma's lap. Carly is deaf and has limited eyesight but makes up for it in personality. She is working on sign language commands which is something her furever family will want to continue through training. Carly's new family should have a 6 ft visible fence, herding dog breed experience (helpful), and a home with no children under 10. She is potty trained, crate-trained and is able to sleep all night long in her crate. Carly is a typical herding breed girl with lots of energy and she enjoys playing with others dogs. Carly is spayed, up-to-date vaccinations and microchipped. She is taking monthly preventatives for flea/tick and heartworms.

Hi all! Seraphina, The Queen of Fluff here. Just thought I'd share what Speak St. Louis has learned about me. I could've told everyone this had they just asked. I'm only about 5 years old. I am not fat, I am fluffy! (Yes, you can use this one.) Seriously, I am 44 lbs and that is an average weight for an Aussie. Five of those pounds are probably from my irresistible white coat. Petting this soft fluff is guaranteed to lower anyone's blood pressure! I not only have the most fluff ever, but my ears had the most yeast ever. I saw the doctor for my ears. She was amazing and made them feel better.....and even gives tummy rubs! Everyone who meets me can't keep their paws off me. Did I mention I'm blind? Doesn't matter to me, I was born this way and I do just fine, so hopefully it doesn't matter to the person who is going to adopt me. I can even take steps when you tell me "step". I may have a little bit of hearing issues, but my foster Dad thinks that's selective hearing. I have no trouble finding the way up on the couch or in the car, because those are two of my favorite places! I am happy to join you for a movie or just a couple errands around town. I am crate trained and I am really good on a leash. You can just about take me anywhere, really. Some of us blind dogs are particular about who is in our space. After all, we cannot see you. It makes sense, right? So, I would really like to meet my interested persons and their pets so I can sniff them out....I mean check them out. I also do not care to be in the company of kitties! Nope, no thank you! No kitties for me! I am also heartworm negative, spayed and up-to-date on vaccines. I am microchipped and taking preventatives for those nasty fleas and ticks and heartworm too. Have your people get in touch with my people here and maybe we can meet: https://www.speakstlouis.com/forms/adoption-application/ What are you waiting for? NOTE: Seraphina is being fostered in Minnesota. She can come to the greater St. Louis area for meet-and-greets.
Hi guys. I'm Aggie. I am a petite young girl, just under a year old. I am part chihuahua and part australian shepherd, so I will remain a fairly little girl. I am completing my bio here in hopes of meeting some special - a new furever family. I do require a special family that understands I am deaf and I do have limited vision. But, don't let that scare you. I am the perfect sweetheart weighing in about 8-9 pounds. While I have not had to be crated, I do happily sleep in my exercise pen or with my foster parents. I am potty trained and I can even find the doggie door to take myself outside when I need to. My foster parents also leave me to roam free when they go places. I love, love, love to follow my foster mama around. She calls me a "velcro dog" and when she sits down, I want to cuddle her or sleep on her feet. Believe it or not, I also really love children... the ones that don't scare me and are in their teenage years. I prefer to be the only pampered dog in the house. I get a tad cranky if the other dogs try to steal my food. I happen to have a fondness for toys and bones as well. I also don't mind when I'm being groomed. A girl's gotta be look good, doesn't she??? I know how to sit and I walk well on a leash. I REALLY love going in the car and I have even went to see a few soccer games. I'm pretty chill and you can take me just about anywhere. Lastly, my new family is required to provide a multitude of cuddles, snuggles, and petting. When we meet, I will have a test to see how good you are at cuddling. I just cannot imagine life without a lot of snuggling. I will need a visible fence and some special needs experience is desired. I have got all my puppy vaccines. I am microchipped and I am spayed. If you're a good cuddler, then please apply here: https://www.speakstlouis.com/adoption-application-2/
Hi I'm Peanut....aka Sweet Pea! I am approximately a year old male Australian Shepherd Mix. When Speak! first received me, my poor body was covered in sores, scabs and scars; all reminders of my previous life. They tell me that I deserve so much more in life! I totally agree. I am in search of my new fur-ever home. I have great vision, but I am deaf. Not being able to hear is certainly not a problem for me. I happen to know a lot of commands already: sit, come, down, wait, stay, walk, left, right, good dog and bad dog. My foster mom says I am the perfect boy. I am a HUGE snugglebug... movie night on the couch is my thing. I love to go on car rides and leash walks. I used to jump over fences, on counters and other high places. I no longer jump on counters but my new family should probably have a 6 foot fence. I have been known to jump the fence and go say hi to the neighbors! My foster momma says I am the best behaved boy there is. I like to play with balls and I am never destructive. While I am okay being the only dog, I do enjoy playing with other doggies. I even go to doggie daycare! I am super quiet in my crate at night. I am potty trained and I have wonderful manners. I am up-to-date....whatever that means. Foster momma made sure I had all my vaccinations, a heartworm test (negative) and a microchip. I do require monthly preventatives for fleas and ticks as well as heartworms. If you wanna meet me, you can have your people get in touch with my people: https://www.speakstlouis.com/forms/adoption-application/
Meet Nash! This wonderful young boy is a ball of luxurious white fur. Nash came to Speak! St. Louis rescue when his former owners did not have the time for him. We quickly realized that Nash is quite the dynamic boy. Nash is a beautiful, 1 year old, deaf Australian Shepherd (with a tail). He certainly doesn't let his hearing deficiency slow him down one bit. Nash is an lively boy who already knows several basic hand signals. He LOVES to play with other dogs and would love to have a playmate with a similar energy level. He would do best in an active family, potentially someone who would like a jogging companion, has an interest in agility, flyball or possibly a friendly Frisbee competition. Nash is potty trained; crate trained and overall well behaved in the home. His ideal family should have a visible fence, herding breed experience and no children under 10 years of age. Nash is neutered, up-to-date on all vaccinations, and will require monthly preventatives for fleas, ticks and heartworms. If you are interested in this beautiful white burst of dynamism, you may submit your adoption application: https://www.speakstlouis.com/forms/adoption-application/
Hi my name is Zeppo! I'm a 6-month old Australian Shepherd male. I am considered to be a Double Merle, which means my mother and father both carried the Merle gene (color pattern). When two Merle dogs breed, this can cause vision or hearing issues. As a result, I am deaf. I'm a really sweet and very smart young guy. I just want to be loved. I like being wherever r my foster Mom is. I don't care much about balls or Frisbees. Instead, I would rather cuddle with you on the couch. I do like the occasional stuffed toys that I can destroy.....I am still a puppy, ya know. I enjoy playing with my foster sisters. The red one likes to wrestle and the blue merle likes to play chase in our yard. I am deaf so my foster Mom is teaching me hand signals, which is something my forever home will want to continue so they can "talk" to me. I know what "good boy" and "watch me" mean. I am working on: sit, lay down and come here. Whenever she wants me to go somewhere, she points to me. I guess pointing is ok for some things. I personally like to see the sign for "eat" the most! Since I'm still a puppy, I am learning the whole house training and crate thing. My new family will want to continue this training with me. I get a treats when I go in my crate and prefer to eat my dinner in my crate. I am very curious about cats. I just don't know what to do with them. They look at me weird and they smell funny. I'm good with other dogs and I ride well in a vehicle. My forever home should have a visible fence and no children under age 10. I am up-to-date on all my vaccinations, microchipped and I am neutered. I will require monthly preventatives for heartworms, fleas and ticks. If you'd like to meet me, you can submit an application here: https://www.speakstlouis.com/forms/adoption-application/
Hi there! I'm Aura! I am an 1-year old female Australian shepherd. My foster parents say that I am a little girl with a BIG funny personality. Speaking of personality, I sometimes do things a tad differently than my foster siblings. For example, when my foster siblings go outside to play they run around in all different directions. I, on the other hand, have a certain path I like to follow.....but I still play with my foster siblings. If I get overly excited inside, I may run in circles. My foster mom is a trainer so she helps redirect me so I don't run in circles. She gets out a special mat when I'm overly excited and I go lie down on it and receive treats! The mat helps me relax when there is a lot going on around me. I also take some medicine to help me focus. Foster mom puts 1 pill in with my meals and I gobble it up. (She thinks she's sneaky!) She wants you to know that my medicine doesn't cost much and they get it from a nearby pharmacy. I should also inform you that I am deaf due to merle-to-merle (color pattern) breeding. I have learned a lot of commands including: sit, lie down, wait before going outside, and wait before eating my food. I am potty trained but my foster parents think I have an odd way of notifying them when I need to do my business. I guess most dogs go to the door and whine.... not me, I run around the house barking. There's one more thing that makes me unique. I really not fond of being cuddled. I am, afterall, an independent girl. I prefer to sniff new people to say hello and then walk away. Once in a while, I like to walk up and get a good butt scratchin', but it doesn't take long before I'm off doing my own thing again. My foster parents love this about me because I don't jump on their guests. I tolerate baths and getting brushed but they aren't my favorite thing to do. I know I may seem like a handful, but I want to be open and honest to my future family. I would like my forever home to have a fenced yard and no children under the age of 12 (since they may try to cuddle me). I'm pretty interested in cat so if my forever home has some, they should probably be able to go to a safe place out of my reach. I also wouldn't mind another doggy friend to play with and follow. I am spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on all my shots. I also need monthly preventatives for fleas, ticks and heartworms. My foster parents say that my forever home should be willing to stick to my training program and appreciate me - my quirkiness and all! If you'd like to meet me, you can apply here: https://www.speakstlouis.com/forms/adoption-application/
Need a young, handsome guy in your life? Meet Zorro! This stunningly beautiful Border Collie has recently joined Speak. He is a young boy born on 12/6/2017. He gets along well with other dogs his size but due to his intense herding drive will nip them. Zorro is deaf, but very much a typical border collie with a great deal of energy and herding drive. Zorro would make an ideal candidate for someone who is interested in agility or herding trials. He is crate-trained, potty trained and currently working on sign language commands. Zorro is up-to-date on all vaccinations, is neutered, and taking monthly preventatives for heartworm, fleas, and ticks. His ideal family must be active and have herding breed experience (strongly recommended). His ideal family should have no children under 10 years of age and a visible fence. Zorro also does best with other dogs his own size (no small dogs, please). His foster family adores him and states he is a fun guy to have around. If you feel like you are an active family that could handle the energy of this sweet boy, please complete an adoption application: https://www.speakstlouis.com/forms/adoption-application/
Jax is a beautiful blue-eyed Border Collie - blind in one eye, and vision impaired in the other. He is a young boy, born on 3/7/2018. A good citizen was working in west Texas and ran across a large group of pups being transported to Colorado. He felt sorry for him and decided to try to help him out. Up to that point (4 - 5 months old), Jax had been kept in a kennel almost all the time. His rescuer had him transported to Texas to a trainer who kept him about 10 weeks. The trainer took him to a dog eye specialist in Houston and he is totally blind in the left eye. He does have some sight in the right eye and is able to follow the other dogs. He was kept with other dogs and did great, he even swam in the creek. After his training the rescuer took him to his home in Louisiana, thinking he would fit in with his crew of female dogs. Unfortunately, the rescuers home and yard was much too small. He felt he was doing a disservice to Jax as he needed the room that a typical Border Collie needs. Jax is quick to learn and used the doggy door right away. He is good with the other dogs and not aggressive at all! He is very, very lovable and smart but he just needed another environment. Now that Jax is in rescue, he is doing great in a crate and still working on potty training. As long as he isn't given too much water in the evening, he is fine until the morning. He loves to run and play with his foster parent's dogs. He is also a total snuggle bug and just wants love and affection. Jax would be best with an active family and no children under 10 years of age. We would suggest a visible fence. He is up-to-date on all vaccinations, neutered and microchipped. He will require monthly medications for fleas, ticks and heartworms. So, what are you waiting for? If you'd like to meet the handsome guy, Jax, you may apply here: https://www.speakstlouis.com/forms/adoption-application/
Meet Cricket, a beauty queen with a shimmering white coat! She is a two-year-old double merle Australian Shepherd. She is blind in one eye, but fortunate to have hearing. Cricket is a typical high-energy Aussie and likes to herd the other dogs, therefore we feel as if she would be better as an only dog. Her strong herding drive is displayed in gentle nip at other dogs. Cricket is also a total cuddle bug and would love to crawl into the laps of her forever family for hugs and kisses. She will sleep quietly through the night in her crate but would be happier snuggled up with her humans in their beds. Cricket is completely housetrained and knows how to use a dog door. She also knows sit and stay, although she could benefit from some basic obedience (recommended). Cricket is past the problematic puppy stage and doesnât chew on anything inappropriate. Cricket was turned into animal control by her former owner for doing what dogs do â chasing chickens. Prior to coming to Speak! St Louis, she had unfortunately never lived indoors. She is now very happy being inside with her foster mom and would love nothing more than to land a forever home with people who will treat her like the amazing beauty that she is! Cricket is up-to-date on her vaccinations, spayed and microchipped. It is recommended that her family have a visible fence and no children under 10 years of age. She requires monthly preventatives for heartworms, fleas and ticks. If you'd like to apply for this beauty queen, you may do so at: https://www.speakstlouis.com/forms/adoption-application/
Just in time for Thanksgiving.......Sage arrived. This adorable, petite little girl is as cute as they come. Sage is an Australian Shepherd puppy that was born deaf as a result of merle to merle (color pattern) breeding. A good Samaritan saw to it that she made her way to Speak! St. Louis rescue so she could find her fur-ever home. Sage is a very well behaved puppy! She is so smart and has already learned so many things at such a young age: potty training, crate training, sleeping throughout the night and a few basic commands (hand signals). This little girl also has a huge amount of herding drive, so we strongly encourage her adopter consider training. Sage is great with other dogs and love to play, as most puppies do. Her ideal home will require a visible fence, herding breed experience (suggested) and no children under 10 years of age. If you would like to meet this petite Princess, you may apply here: https://www.speakstlouis.com/forms/adoption-application/
This is a courtesy listing for Western Tennessee Border Collie Rescue. Meet Jarvis! He is a 6 month old, purebred Border Collie puppy. Jarvis is deaf but this does not slow him down one bit! He is a very affectionate boy with everyone he meets. He is not fearful of men and is truly gentle with children. Jarvis is undergoing some training for his tendency to push other dogs aside for more attention. He is living with a dog now, but it took a few weeks to warm up and play together. They are good together most of the time but Jarvis would be just as content to be an only dog. We have not tested him with cats. Jarvis settles down easily in his crate at night shortly after lights are out. During waking hours, he prefer not to be alone. If someone is home he wants to have his eyes on them. At night, he is hesitant to go out unless there is a light on outside or someone goes with him. Some of that fear will probably go away once heâs settled in a home. Jarvis, perhaps like many deaf pups, is apprehensive with new things but heâs learning and building confidence every day. He is crate trained, housebroken and is progressing well on leash training. Jarvis is up to date on vaccinations, neutered, microchipped and on monthly heartworm preventive. He will make a wonderful companion to someone that understands his needs and has the patience and heart to work with him. His adoption fee is $275.00. If you are interested in this beautiful boy please contact Georgia at firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a courtesy post for Aussie Rescue & Placement Helpline. Meet Harley. Harley is looking for his forever home! Harley is a 1 year old double merle Australian Shepherd. He quite possibly has limited vision in his right eye. Harley does appear to have full range hearing. Harly has the biggest smile and is an all-around goofy, playful puppy. He gets along will with most dogs. He enjoys water and even swimming. Harley will chase a tennis ball, a Frisbee and loves a good game of fetch. He is content just hanging out in the house with his people. Harly is potty trained, but his home will need to continue monitoring this. He is great in his kennel although he can be vocal at times. Harley will need a home willing to let him warm up a bit, as he can be unsure of strangers. With Harley's vision impairment he can become spooked by sudden movement. We recommend a home without young children. Harly is being fostered with a trainer, so he knows several basic commands. He is up-to-date on vaccinations, neutered and microchipped. He requires monthly preventatives for heartworms, fleas and ticks. You may apply to adopt at www.aussierescue.org.
Stormy, Yeti and Blaze were three diamonds in the rough. We could tell that by the videos and pictures sent from the shelter. They were dumped at a rural shelter with no heat and no space and we couldn't bear to let them stay there. Blaze was the most social of this trio. He is doing very well with his new accommodations. Blaze is a 3 year old standard-size australian shepherd male. He is a big boy weighing about 55 lbs. Blaze is your typical velcro aussie and wants to be with his people. He is house trained and crate trained, but his ideal family would consider continue doing some basic obedience classes with him. He is good on a leash, a quick learner and a stunning red-head. Blaze is neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations and is microchipped. He will require monthly preventatives for fleas, ticks and heartworms. If you'd like to meet this beauty, you may submit your application here: https://www.speakstlouis.com/forms/adoption-application/
Stormy, Yeti and Blaze were three diamonds in the rough. We could tell that by the videos and pictures sent from the shelter. They were dumped at a rural shelter with no heat and no space and we couldn't bear to let them stay there. Stormy is a stunning blue merle female. She has a permanent wink as she is missing an eye. That doesn't make her any less beautiful in our eyes. She definitely has aussie behaviors and likes to be the boss. She has adjusted well and become comfortable with indoor life, but enjoys getting her energy out playing with Yeti and running around. She woud likely do best with a submissive dog, or a family that would devote all their attention to her. She is approximately a year old. She is on the smaller side for an aussie. She has a stunningly beautiful blue merle coat and has typical aussie behaviors. She is house trained, crate trained, but could brush up on some basic manners. She is spayed, up-to-date on all vaccinations. She is microchipped and will require monthly preventatives for fleas, ticks and heartworms. Her ideal home would have no children under the age of 10.
