7/1/17 - Adoption Pending!!!

​Twister is a beautiful, purebred, 6 year old Australian shepherd.  He is an extremely loving dog, loves all people.  He’s good with children 6 years and older.  He needs an active home. Someone who likes to walk, hike, or run would be ideal. Twister is housetrained and crate trained. He is up to date on shots and has recently been neutered.
When it comes to walks, Twister will initially be strong on the leash and then mellows. He has a solid sit. Given enough exercise and play time, he settles right down in any situation.
Twister will do best in a home with Aussie experience and with people who are willing to give him a good amount of exercise and firm but loving boundaries. He could benefit from a formal training class which uses only positive reinforcement—with treat and clicks.
He cannot go to any home with livestock, chickens, ducks, cats, or other male dogs as he does not get along with them. Female dogs are fine with him.  

A fenced yard is required to adopt Twister.
