Meet Wilson! Wilson is 2 years old and 62 pounds. He is a standard tri color Purebred Aussie. He is UTD on everything. Heartworm/tick disease negative and current on prevention. Wilson came into rescue with some high value resource guarding behaviors and because of his guarding behaviors Wilson is NOT for a first time dog owner and his adopter will be required to continue his training and be comfortable with his current training methodology, as other methodologies have not been successful. His perfect person will need to be 100% familiar with dog behavior and body language. He is Potty/house trained. Sleeps well at night in the bedroom. He loves to be in the bed, on the sofa or in a dog bed. Does well in 6 foot fenced yard. Doesn't try to jump or dig under fence to escape. Goes into kennel when you say 'in'. He stays in the kennel while no one is home and does okay. He does bark a lot while in the kennel because he isn't a fan of being in it and being alone. He does have separation anxiety. He hates being alone. He's very velcro and always craves attention. He loves attention, scratches and cuddles. Does great with happy, social, friendly dogs. Plays with dogs well. He's fine with and respects small senior dogs. He is iffy with dominant/alpha dogs. Sometimes shows teeth and growls at dogs who are dominant/alpha. I'd say he needs a home with another friendly/social dog, not a dog that's dominant/alpha. Not cat or child tested but with past issues no children or cats! Wilson knows a ton of commands and needs to be kept active and mentally stimulated. Wilson has done some beginner agility and loves it, also he would do great at Rally, obedience, and more! Wilson has never met a stranger! He is fostered in Auburn GA and will need to be adopted local to continue with his training.
