Dash is a 10 month old mini austrailain shepherd (I was told he was purebred, but do not have papers). He weighed 26lbs at his vet visit in September and is not expected to get any larger. We have had him for aproximately 6 months. The person we acquired him from had been keeping him crated for most of the day in a small apartment. She purchased him from a breeder and could not keep him. He is up to date on shots, microchipped, crate trained, and mostly house broken. He is outside in a fenced yard during the day and crated inside at night. He is a very hyper but smart puppy and needs someone that has the time to work with him and has a place for him to run. Dash is a very sweet dog, unfortunately we do not have the time that he needs and deserves. He would enjoy another doggy friend. He chases our cat, but does not harm her, and does fine with the neighbors' dogs. He is okay around children. He likes to jump, so he will scratch and knock them over if not supervised.
