About Sharkey

Adoption Fee: $300
Catahoula / Australian Kelpie
Age: Puppy
Sex: Male

Sharkey is currently fostered in Fellsmere, FL (Indian River County). We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families! Transport is available to a new foster home. Sharkey is a 1-2 year old unknown mixed breed - vet records indicate some cur and kelpie in there, and we see Carolina dog and maybe some retriever or shepherd. Regardless, if you are looking for an ideally medium-sized (35-40 lbs), on-the-go, athletic and loving dog, Sharkey is your guy! This handsome young lad is a Hurricane Harvey rescue. He came in from Louisiana knowing nothing about manners (but with not a mean bone in his body). We sent him to a trainer where he has lived for a few months and has learned valuable skills like walking on lead, being appropriate in his interactions with other dogs, impulse control, basic commands, and how to relax and be calm. His foster will need to commit to continuing to reinforce calm energy with him. He does need a home that will give him an outlet, be it some kind of work, running, bikejoring, etc. He requires a home with a secure, fenced yard. Sharkey is light heartworm positive and will likely be treated with doxycycline and Heartgard with no activity restrictions (TBD). If he only needs slow-kill, he can be adopted outright. The rescue will pay for heartworm treatment at one of the veterinarians we work with. Sharkey gets along with dogs when introduced properly. He would be fine with kids 12+, but is a bit too exuberant for young ones. He is housebroken and crate trained. Sharkey is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, and microchipped. Can you help him on his journey to a forever home? Foster applications can be found at
