Our Australian Shepherd, Kylie, was rescued from a puppy mill that was shut down. She is a beautiful blue eyed, dilute red merle with a full tail, and a sway back from carrying multiple litters.
When we got Kylie five years ago, she was thin, with a very sparse coat. She was scared of everything, and spent her first few weeks hiding behind our houseplants. It was a year before she was brave enough to go downstairs, and even now she spooks easily and is considered a 'flight risk'.
But our red merle girl has come a long way from those early days. She has a sweet, loving disposition, a quick brain and a delightful sense of humor. She indulges and protects our two Chihuahuas like a mother. She has filled out, her coat is full and soft, and she turns heads wherever she goes. We love Miss Kylie to bits, and can't imagine life without her.
I urge all prospective Australian Shepherd owners to consider rescue first. In many cases you will be saving a dog's life, and the rewards are beyond measure.
