To be right next to his Mommy
Play with our other Dogs, but is most happy with his Human Family
Ropes, Balls, Frisbee, AND any stuffed, fuzzy toys with squeekers in it
Walk? You mean Run? Running after a Ball being hit by a Baseball Bat
I retrieve everything my Mom tells me to "pick up gently and give nice"
One of my clients had this beautiful red merled Aussie baby girl. I was in love with her and ask where she got her. I got the phone number of a breeder here in AZ and I contacted the lady. I found out that she had taking in a rescue Aussie, which was aggressive, and the former owner wanted it dead. She asked me if I could come and evaluate the dog, possible work with it. I did, the dog did fine, ended up snuggling with me. She then showed me her pups....... and gave me Wyatt, because I did not want to get paid evaluating/working with the rescued dog. I also showed her how to not make an Aussie jump up and chip her teeth anymore...........
I really liked the Lady and not only did I get a Red Merled Pup, but we maintained a Friendship, the Breeder and I.
Wyatt was the last litter she had. His entire line is Australian Shepherd Club of America, Akc and the breeder worked all her dogs in competition, but now she's retired.
Aussies can make great pets, but if not worked and challenged, nor obedience trained early, they can become over powering, and oh so many of this breed end up at the pound.
This is a working breed, created to herd aggressivly, to not give up and to be stubborn.
If from a strong working line, not confirmation line, many owners face a dog, once cute, now with severe aggressions and high liability.
Sadly, I train many Aussies which would not hesitate attacking someone for no reason at all...
Choose wise, train early, put Rules down, and exercise your Aussie.
And most important: Socialize, socialize, socialize!!
