#698 Cassie, Female, 1.5 Years Old

Cassie is a beautiful chocolate Merle Australian Shepherd looking for her forever loving home.  She is approximately 1 1/2 years old with a moderate amount of puppy energy.  Cassie weighs 47 pounds, so because of her size and energy level,  she would do best in a home with a large yard.  She loves running in the yard, chasing her foster siblings, and following her foster Mom everywhere!  Cassie has socialized wonderfully with all of her foster siblings, resident kitties included.  Although she is very sweet and loving, she can be timid at first, around new people.  After a couple of minutes and a few treats, she will become a fast friend.  Cassie does well with children, but because of her size and rambunctiousness, would be a better fit for older children.  Cassie knows “sit” and “stay”, and is housebroken and crate trained.  She rides well in the car and is getting better at walking on leash.  She does tend to get excited at the start of a walk, but calms down after a couple of minutes.  Cassie loves to cuddle and basks in her foster Mom’s attention.  She is a loving, loyal companion and will make a wonderful member of the family.
