Adopted our new puppy
Posted 19 January 2014 - 02:54 PM
Picture is from the shelter, doesn't really do him justice of course.
Breed all we know is some sort of terrier/sheepdog + other things so he's kind of mystery mutt.
I was a bit concerned about the size 'cause he's smaller than our ideal weight range probably - will be around 15lbs they estimate - but we made the obvious mistake of meeting him at the shelter and that was pretty much game over and we couldn't leave him there.
We met his foster, who was apparently a fairly experienced volunteer foster person and fostering his mom when she had him in a litter and she told us how great he was and the most mellow and sweet of the litter.
It's kind of amazing how dramatic the mood change in our house is atm, last month was pretty bad since our dog died and then my grandpa died. This guy is extremely therapeutic and is making it pretty impossible to stay gloomy.
Anyway this is a terrible corny post but I had to share.
Edit: A couple quick photos from our digital camera(bad quality but w.e) -

Will do. Australian Shepherds can be pretty diverse in their appearance so even a purebred one can look kind of odd. He's got a pretty much completely red/tan coat and his eyes are both the same color though so he won't be as funky looking as say:
(Though I think that's a cool looking dog)
I'm guessing he ends up something like this:
Hard to say though since right now he's kind of a puffball mutt.

We had a Parson Russell(taller JackRT basically) purebred before this. This new dog is amazingly easy compared to that. I loved our parson but that dog could be a major PITA - sometimes in a charming impish mischief way but other times it was like someone stuffed a hurricane into a little white dog.
He is mellow most of the time, just needs an hour or two of exercise a day and some time outside in the yard. He gets feisty when he doesn't get that, but still pretty good for a puppy.
Mostly he's just playful and cuddly, no behavior problems other than being kinda nippy when he gets riled up, but part of that is he's still teething and we just give him something other than our hands to chew on.
I'm also not sure there's any actual terrier in him. He doesn't look like one and his fur is much more like a golden retriever or something in spite of his size.

A pic of a goose in my garden, most of them are drama queens but also very good guardians, when people come close to our house they instantly honk :
