Augie

Australian Shepherd x Golden Retriever

Available for adoption!

3/4/17 Augie is ​an​ 11 ​week​ old 16​ ​lb. Aussie/Golden Mix. He is mainly white with some tan spots and a lovely little tail.

He has a little vision and can hear.

Augie is a happy active pup who loves walks and outside play.

He walks well on a leash and is making progress on housebreaking.

Augie sleeps well in the Expen and no complaining.

He loves to be held and loves to play with toys.

Augie is up to date on​ vacciness and is maintained on Sentinel for Heartworm and Flea preventative.

Augie does have some herding instinct ​and he does nip on legs a little​,​ so a ​family with older children would be best Augie.

Since Augie is very active and loves to run​,​ a fenced in yard for his health and safety would be required.
