I Want To Adopt/Rescue An Australian Shepherd—Any Tips? Advice?
Hi there! I'm a 31 year old female, and I'm just about to move into a new condo. I want to get situated for the first couple of months, and then really want to adopt/rescue an Australian Shepherd. I've loved these dogs for a while, and I want to give one a great home!
This would be my first pet, so I wanted to ask if you guys can give me advice? Where do I begin? Would the dog be okay living in an condo setting? I'm currently single, so it would be just me.
Just a few things—I do work in the city, and live in the suburbs, but would definitely wake up early to take the dog out for a morning walk. I have to figure out a way to get a dog-walker for mid-afternoon (I've read that this breed needs a good amount of exercise), and I will take him/her out for an evening run.
I'm happy to hear any/all suggestions!
