Return to Available Dogs


6 years old, Red Merle Australian Shepherd Tex is a handsome six-year-old red-merle Australian Shepherd who is making his return to Perfect Pet Rescue after five years of living with a beautiful family. They are sad to be seeking a new home for their sweet boy, but it is now necessary. Tex is a well-trained dog, but his herding instinct is more robust than his training. His natural instinct has him herding the toddler around the house. Tex herds children at his eye level who move or run, but he can live happily with older/taller children and adults. He is very affectionate and loves to be petted and close to people. He is truly a wonderful dog who will fill any home with his exuberance and happiness. Unfortunately, he is not suited for a dog park but enjoys walks and hikes where he does not have to be confronted by other dogs. Sweet Tex loves taller folk, but after being attacked by two large breed dogs, he’s had a difficult time with dogs ever since. It’d be best for him to be in a home as the only dog. Tex is a Perfect Pet in every way but needs a home with a family experienced with Aussies and herding breeds. Tex is a beautiful dog, eager to trade his love with an equally loving family. To be considered as a possible adoptee for excellent Tex, please get in touch with Perfect Pet Rescue:
