Becoming an Australian Shepherd's New Person

by Sue
(Tennessee)


After nearly two years of my Australian Shepherd passing, I am finally seeking another. But this time I am interested in a 2-year-old rather than a puppy. He is very happy on a farm with a family of children and many kinds of animals. His "person" is a young girl who has taught him tricks and plays with him. How do you think he will adjust to me, his new "person"?

He will be on a new farm without children or other people. I will be his only caretaker. I am single and active but will have to spend several hours away from home a few days a week. My other Aussie learned to stay at the farm and wait patiently till I got home.

I appreciate any feedback about taking on a new best friend who has had a previous owner.

Not good

Sorry but I have to be honest. He’s an Aussie. He’ll be devastated. He might adjust fairly soon or may never. That said, if they need to get rid of him, yours sounds like the best home he could hope for.
