Needs: • Active Adult Home • Solo Dog • Fenced Yard.
Awesome Augie is an extremely intelligent, active and loyal 2 year old, 40 lb Australian Cattle Dog mix who thrives on learning. With the classic smarts and high trainability of this great herding breed, he needs focused accomplishments to occupy his mind. Augie is on a great path in his dog savvy foster home where he is learning agility skills, getting consistent mental and physical stimulation and lots of time with his people. He is seeking a forever home who will continue that journey.
Once Augie has connected with his person, he is deeply affectionate, and enjoys major snuggles at the end of a busy day. Augie loves to explore, and is happy to hop in the car and go on adventures; he makes a great sidekick!
Our trainer feels this clever boy is a great agility or rally dog prospect. He enjoys walks and hikes, but most of all he likes to use his brain to learn new things. Because of his herding dog heritage, he would do best in a home without children. Augie can be selective with his dog friends so needs to be a solo dog in his forever home, and he finds dog parks too stressful so needs other forms of exercise.
Augie is house trained, crate trained, excellent on leash, and ready to find an experienced forever home who will enjoy going on Augie doggie adventures with him!
