Australian Shepherd



I am Oshi, I was born completely blind, but that triviality doesn’t stop me. I use my eyes to captivate you into allowing me to have more food, an unhealthy snack, or just to get my way! I use my other senses to move around, and let me tell you that I do it very well #Smart 😉

I am VERY playful and VERY energetic. I can play for hours and never get tired #highstamina 🙂   I enjoy the company of a fellow canine that can keep up my energy rhythm and my playful games, as well as cuddle with me on nap time. I am also OBSESSED with people: I will jump, wave my tail, and get over excited by just hearing a new human voice. For that reason, I am NOT a good fit for small kids; I will get so excited that I might jump on them and hurt them without having the intention to.

Did I mention that I am also brainy? Oh yeah! I loved to get stimulated mentally and physically. I get BORED with toys and raw bones. I am not a couch potato, nor I will be a good fit for just sitting on your lap. I rather be outdoors, playing -rough- with a mate, or learning new tricks. By now, I know several commands: “Sit” “Drop it” “Give me the paw” and Mommy is teaching me some more.

Mommy tells me all the time that she is so proud of me because I can sleep all night by myself in my little house (my crate). Also, I do not have “accidents” inside the house! If I need to go potty, I will let Mommy know by sitting at the door. That makes me feel like a grown-up pup! #proud.

I am also very obedient, and will barely bark. I love to swim, and I work stairs like a champ!. I haven’t been able to be around cats, so I am not sure if I will like them or not. I have been around other dogs, and I need to be supervised at feeding time, because -since I am not shy- I can get into other dogs’ bowl of food without caring and that could get me into some trouble #oops.


Because I am considered a working breed, my needs are double special:

*I NEED TONS of DAILY exercise! Therefore, I will be a perfect addition to a family that performs high levels of physical activities: like running, cycling, skateboarding, hiking, paddling, among others, so that I can tag along with them and have fun! A farming family also works! 🙂

*I  REALLY need to live in a house with a fenced backyard since I REALLY enjoy being outdoors! By having one, I can run, and play without tearing the house apart! Sadly I do not do well in apartments 🙁

*I MUST have a PLAYFUL, TOLERANT, HIGH ENERGY buddy to play, cuddle, and teach me the ropes. Besides my daily outdoor activities, I enjoy playing rough with my sibling several times a day. Many times my brother is tired of playing with me, so Mommy has to step in, and play with me, to allow my brother have a rest. Also, since I am a blind puppy, I rely on the wisdom of my brother to show me his tricks in what is to be a dog: how to move around the backyard, eating etiquette, whom to bark to, and of course how to score chicks 😉

*Although I love to be with my brother, I also ADORE humans! I become crazy when I heard them, running towards them to give them kisses and give them love! I get sad when I spend a substantial amount of time without my humans -what can I tell you? I am a love bug! :). Thus, the less amount of time I spend alone with my brother the happier I will be! 🙂
