Coming Attraction: Rookie!

Updated: Jun 25

Age: 5 years old

Breed: mini Australian Shepherd


Gets along with: people, dogs

Location: Cordele, GA

Rookie is ready!  He is ready for his forever home!  This fun-loving, 5-year-old mini-Aussie is getting closer to his ideal weight of ~27 pounds (he was too thin), and he loves to have his gorgeous red-bi coat brushed.  He has no tail.  Rookie is housebroken, crate-trained, and knows some basic obedience commands.  He walks very nicely on leash and rides fine in the car.

Rookie is a VERY Velcro guy who adores people, although he is a bit reserved when he first meets someone new.  He can’t get close enough!  He loves to play with people, hang out with people, walk with people; he is a real people-lover.  He also enjoys playing with other dogs and he has a preference for the “ladies”.  And when there are no people or dogs to play with, he is happy to quietly play with his toys.  He has not been cat-tested.

The ideal home for this little Rookie is a home with people who are looking for a true best friend.  His adopter should be dog-savvy, as he will periodically “test” his foster family just to see how much he can get away with!  A fenced yard is important as he does like to go on patrol, another playful dog would be great (especially a female!), and because he still is a bit of a jumper, children should be over the age of 12.  We think that Rookie’s focus on people would make him an “A” student in an obedience class.  If you are looking for a smart, affectionate little Rookie, apply today!  Rookie is fostered in Cordele, GA.

Rookie's adoption donation is $275.
