This guy is doing so well. Showing off his beautiful coat as it grows back - gorgeous deep colors!

Sir Spot is a sweet, happy male Australian Shepherd “of a certain age” who is ready for his new home. Given up by his owner who could no longer keep her dogs, Sir Spot is 11 years old and weighs 65 pounds – a good weight for him. His beautiful red merle coat was so matted that we had no choice but to have him shaved, but you can see it is growing back and looking gorgeous! Sir Spot is housebroken, crate-trained (but not a crate enthusiast!) and rides nicely in the car. He knows his basic obedience commands, walks pretty well on leash and has excellent recall off leash. Sir Spot is in pretty good shape for an 11-year-old, with just a touch of arthritis that is not surprising!

Sir Spot loves people, and although a little shy when he meets someone new he warms up quickly. He has learned to love neck scratches, back rubs and even a butt scratch or two! He is a Velcro guy who enjoys hanging out with people, whether it is playing fetch (his very favorite game), going for walks or just sharing the living room. Sir Spot also gets along fine with other dogs, male and female, but is not really playful with them. He has not been cat tested.

The ideal home for Sir Spot is with a person or family who will make sure that he gets the exercise he needs to keep his muscles and joints in top shape - walks and games of fetch are just what he needs and loves!  Another dog would be fine but he would be very happy as an only dog, and a fenced yard would be nice. If Sir Spot sounds like your next best friend, apply today! Sir Spot is fostered in Birchwood, TN.

Sir Spot's adoption donation is $200.
