Please read Lassie’s requirements in a forever home below and only inquire/apply if you fit that criteria.
Lassie is a precious 1 year old, 47 lb. Collie/Australian Shepherd mix. With her fluffy coat and always wagging tail, this girl is a true delight! She loves dancing around with her toys and is all about having fun. Lassie loves playing with the other dogs in her foster home, though true to breed, can also be seen trying to herd them. She is intelligent and adventurous and would love a home that will both mentally and physically stimulate her. She enjoys swimming in her foster family’s pool and can often be found stealing tennis balls from her canine friends who play fetch in the water. When Lassie crashes for a short nap, she likes to curl up on the couch or a lounge chair on the deck and simply melts into a scrumptious cuddle buddy. She also sleeps in bed with her foster parents every night. Lassie is house trained, walks well on leash, and knows sit and come.
With the energy level and mouthiness of an Australian Shepherd, Lassie is not suitable for a home with cats or young children. She needs a dog savvy home, with a large fenced yard and another active dog to play with.
Please note that Lassie has hip dysplasia and is currently on a medical management plan. She will only be adopted to a home that is committed to continuing this care.
