Meet Fred!

Fred is a five year old Red Merle Australian Shepherd, he is neutered, up to date wtih vaccines and currently undergoing heartworm treatment. He is a medium sized male with a zest for life, he can be pushy with other males dogs at times but loves the ladies. Fred is well mannered in the house but does not like to be confined to a crate.

He came to rescue from a shelter and had never been exposed to much in his previous life, his first car ride was a frightening experience for him, since coming into foster care he has learned new things and loves to ride. Fred loves people and enjoys being with them and getting lots of attention. He is a stunning dog, his coat is thick and full and he enjoys brushing. He does have a previous eye injury that does not impair his vision.

Fred will require a home with Aussie experience and one that will help Fred to overcome some of his previous fears. Since he has not been exposed to small children we recommend a home wtih other dog savvy children for him.

We found Fred currently being cared for through a foster home with Georgia Aussie Rescue Placement Helpline in Hinesville, Georgia.

Note: Yes, we know that the Australian Shepherd was developed in the US, but how could we not include this handsome fellow in our Aussie Week rescues?
