DOB 2008

Meet Preston! He's a 4 yr old Aussie Shepherd mix that's extremely loveable and sweet. He's been neutered and his vaccinations are up to date. He's been a 1 owner pet since he was 6 weeks old but because of an unplanned family circumstance, they need to find a new home for him.

He's extremely smart and inquisitive. He loves to entertain and play hide and seek with treats and loves to entice you to play tug of war with him and a tennis ball! He understands and follows basic commands and is 100% housebroken. He's very alert to his surroundings and is in tune with car doors closing, alarm chimes on a home signaling that someone is coming or going, as well as will alert you if there's an unfamiliar face or object on the property.

Preston has been crate trained and is not opposed to spending time in a crate, but has not spent time in a crate for over 2 years. He loves to snuggle under beds, tables, chairs, anything that will cover him. He's good with other pets and older children, but would be great as an only pet. He is not recommended to a family with toddlers. He can be a bit shy at times, but usually warms up to most people fairly quickly.

Preston is of a herder breed and tries to lead a lot, which can sometimes be a challenge. He also has tons of energy and would do well with a job or task like agility training. He's used to being walked on a leash and loves to be outdoors, although he is an indoor dog. He travels very well and loves going for car rides and being able to stick his head out of the window to feel the breeze in his hair!

Preston is really is a great dog and would make a good companion to the right family or individual. Preston is not at the shelter but still at home.
