Luke is a wonderful purebred Australian Shepherd who is ready for his forever home. He is 2 years old, he a great weight at 48 pounds, and he has a handsome black tri coat. Luke is housebroken, crate-trained and he knows some of his obedience commands. Luke walks pretty well on leash but he can become too interested in passing dogs, cars or joggers. A quick redirection and he is fine! Luke absolutely loves to ride in the car, and if left in a parked car he will bark at everyone who walks by – no one will steal the car on his watch!
Luke loves his people and their guests in the home. Outside, he is not a fan of strangers who approach him until he understands that they are friendly. This high Velcro guy is truly high Velcro – he will share the shower if you let him! If you close a door, he will wait there until you open it again. Luke is very much a pack dog who adores his pack of people and other dogs. Luke loves to play with other dogs and is their friend for life AFTER he has had a chance to slowly and carefully check them out, and just like people, make sure that they are friendly. He is a high energy guy who loves his daily walks, loves to play in the water, loves to wrestle with his dog pals and loves to play with his toys. He is obsessed with chasing the spray hose. Luke does chase cats.
The ideal family for Luke is experienced with high energy herding dogs, and appreciates their need for exercise, socialization and ongoing training. A family who is home much of the day would be ideal, a fenced yard is required, and a friendly, energetic dog pal would be fine with him. Children should be over the age of 12, and a home without cats is best. Luke has made so much progress and we know that his perfect family is out there waiting for him – maybe you? Apply today! Luke is fostered in Kingsport, TN.
Luke's adoption donation is $300.
