Kal is a big, friendly, handsome Australian Shepherd who is ready for his forever home. He is about 1 ½ years old, he is a little thin at 66 pounds, and he has a very nice red merle coat and blue eyes. Kal is housebroken, crate-trained and he is just starting to learn his basic obedience commands. He is learning to walk on leash and rides pretty well in the car. We think that things like leashes and cars and even homes are all new experiences for him - he is learning that jumping up on people out of sheer happiness and counter surfing with gusto are not what dogs should do!
Kal loves people. He immediately attaches himself to women, and while he is a bit shy when he meets a new man this shyness does not last long. Kal is very affectionate and this high Velcro guy loves to spend time with people, getting pets and giving kisses. He also has a medium energy level and he loves to play with other dogs. Kal is just beginning to discover toys and he has not been exposed to cats.
The ideal home for Kal is active, friendly and ready for a rather large boy who will benefit from basic obedience classes – he acts more like a big puppy than a young adult dog! A fenced yard for running, exploring and playing is critical, another playful young dog would be great, and because Kal still jumps up on people any children in the home should be older than 12. Kal is so ready for a home of his own, maybe yours? Kal is fostered in Birchwood, TN.
