Well hello there! I'm Meeko and I'm a young red tri Australian Shepherd with a bonus (tail)! I am currently being fostered just west of the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. I was an owner surrender who was loved very much. I am a typical young Aussie - I'm silly, goofy, impetuous and absolutely adorable. I mean - just look at me!! My foster mom says I'm really smart and a quick learner. At dinner - I already learned that I can't come off the carpet and need to lay down while foster mom and dad eat. But I do need manners!!! I am just under a year of age so needs someone who knows that it will take some time for me to mature and work with me in how to become a respectable young pup. I just love foster moms dogs- she has all sizes and I love them all. I love to play and will need an active family so I can go and do neat things. I have not been around young children - but since I'm young myself - I would probably do better with kids 5 and up since I'm a little silly still and a big boy who is currently around 45 pounds. If you would like to make me part of your family please fill out an application: http://www.australianshepherdsfurever.org/adoption-application My adoption fee is $325 and all fees are used for future rescue efforts.
