Current Referrals



Callie is a two year (DOB 7/15/17) old spayed pure bred Australian Shepherd weighing approximately 40 pounds.  She is an absolute mush, always wants to be where her people are, and loves kids.  She learns super fast (of course) and is always up for a game of fetch.  She knows sit, stay, down, come, leave it, wait and spin.  She will put the ball right in your hand and has a hand signal to wait patiently for pets.  She has been trained to ignore loose chickens but is too intense for the outdoor cat.

Callie does have some quirks to consider.  She has stranger anxiety, so she needs slow introductions.  She is more comfortable with women than men (although this does improve with time).  She is dominant, so she will need to be the only dog.  She is an active dog with a lot of puppy left in her, so she needs a fenced yard.  Only homes with previous herding dog experience will be considered.   She is currently living with her owners on the east end of Long Island.

Those with an approved application will be referred to the owner.  Please contact ARPH Rep Pat for further information.
