Comet is a fun, happy Australian Shepherd mix who is ready for his forever home. He is about a year old, weighs 45 pounds, and has a shorthaired blue merle coat and full tail. This smart guy is housebroken, crate-trained and he knows his basic obedience commands. Comet is very good on leash and absolutely loves to go for rides in the car.
Comet is reserved when he first meets new people, but once he gets to know you he is your high-Velcro best friend. Comet loves to be with people, and he loves playing ball, Frisbee and tug. He also loves other dogs – he is playful and even silly with them! Chase is his favorite game with other dogs. He is an active, fun-loving guy, but he does have a slight hip dysplasia, and if he plays hard you will see a slight limp in his right rear leg. The vets who have examined Comet say that no treatment is required other than some joint supplements, and he even though he will play ball 24/7 if he could, he is a dog who should be limited to normal, backyard ball games – no serious competitive sports for him. Comet is cat-friendly, and he even gives them a play-bow to try and get them to play with him!
The ideal home for Comet is full of fun, topped with a healthy serving of love! He is all about love, play, and being part of the family 24/7. A fenced yard is important and another playful dog or two would be perfect. Children 10 and over, and cats, are welcome! Comet is such a happy guy and he will bring such joy to his new family, maybe yours? Apply today! Comet is fostered in Kingsport, TN.
