Jimmy is a happy, healthy, playful young Australian Shepherd who is available for adoption. He is about 18 months old, he weighs 33 pounds, and he has a very handsome deep red tri-colored coat. Jimmy is housebroken, crate-trained, and he knows a few basic obedience commands. His leash-walking skills are a work in progress, and he is a great passenger in the car.
Jimmy loves people! He has that classic “Aussie Reserve” when he meets someone new, but he warms up quickly and is comfortable with men and women. He is a medium-to-high Velcro boy who loves to be close to his foster family but he does not need constant attention – he will entertain himself or play with a dog pal as long as he can keep an eye on his people! Jimmy loves other dogs, and he has the best time playing with his dog pals. He is very respectful of the play styles of his pals and he is very good at reading their cues. Jimmy is a medium-to-high energy dog with a nice off switch. He loves to romp with his dog pals, chase balls, play with toys, splash around in the water, explore the yard and go for walks, and when all the play is done he loves to quietly hang out with his foster family. Jimmy has not been exposed to cats.
The ideal family for Jimmy is ready to laugh, to play, to teach, and to love this wonderful young Aussie! A fenced yard is required, another playful young dog would be fabulous, and because he is still learning his doggie manners (such as no jumping!) any children in the home should be at least 10 years old. Jimmy is such a people lover, and he wants so much to find his special, forever family.
