Summer is a one year old female black lab. She is a high energy dog looking for a jogging person to be with. She needs at least 2 to 3 mile run per day and she needs a balanced person who can talk without a lot of extra excitement. She knows how to jog by herself on treadmill.
Lady is a friendly 4 year old purebred aussie that spent her entire life on a chain the the Red Lake Indian Reservation. Despite that she likes people, especially women, and she enjoys it very much when you work with her.
Charlie is a 7 year old male (40 pounds) who comes from a very loving family. He is great with kids and also lived with a golden retriever and a cat. He has lots of energy and loves to run and play but does not play fetch unless it is on his terms. He also likes to swim but does not retrieve anything in the water. He is very sweet but can be overbearing at the greeting and gets super excited. After he is acquainted he settles down and just wants to be close. Charlie is used to sleeping indoors and loves his kennel. He reacts the best to verbal reprimands when he has misbehaved and a timeout in his kennel. He is fine with cats but sometimes chases them a little here and there.
Charlie will make a wonderful addition to any family.
Ezzy is an 18 month old male mini aussie. He weighs 20-25 pounds. He is a very active and smart dog that will do best in a home without a lot of kids coming and going. He is very athletic and will benefit from having an experienced owner. He is very nicely put together, has a lot of drive and would do very well in dog sports.
Newton is a year old, male, Aussie mix. He's a friendly, happy, very puppyish dog that is good with kids, dogs, and cats. He's housebroken, non-destructive, crate trained, and very mild mannered. This is a dog that has enough energy for any sort of exercise you can give him, but is able to settle right down in the house. He is the perfect family dog.
Foster Home Needed!
Doogie is a 10 month old male Aussie/Golden Retriever mix. He is very sweet and loveable however he does not do well with cats or chickens.
Doogie has a big heart and gets along with other dogs. He loves to play. He is clean in the house, is quiet at night, and loves everyone he meets. He is full of big puppy exuberance and energy.
Meet Jax! Jax has a sad story, he was left at a rest stop near Valley City, ND. He was found by a lady who thought he was ugly and named him Reuben. He was turned over to a rescue near Valley City, who in turn realized he was a lethal white Australian Shepherd. They then contacted us and Jax resides here in NW Minnesota until his furever home is found. Jax is deaf, but has some vision and can see his people. He is very vocal when he is excited to see you and loves attention. Jax is between 1-3 years old and will require a fenced yard for his safety. Jax gets along with other dogs, but is safest by your side due to his being deaf. Jax is a sweet dog who wasn’t given much of a chance and is now looking for his furever home that will be understanding of his disability. Most lethal whites will bond very tight to their owners as they will look to them for direction. Jax is available for adoption, and please see if you have spot in your heart for this beautiful boy.

Update: Shep is adapting to life in a house with ease. He has not had a single
accident and is quiet and well behaved in his crate. He loves people and
likes to stand up, put his feet on your shoulders and give you a gentle hug.
He looks and feels like a big teddy bear. He walks beautifully on a leash
without pulling and is great off leash, coming when called. He is good with
kids and other dogs, but he does chase cats and seems a bit too interested
in the ducks and other things that run. We don't know yet how much of that
chasing is herding instinct or if there is more to it.
Shep is a gorgeous 3 year old male aussie that has never known the warmth of a house or much attention. He has spent his entire life outside with an automatic feeder and waterer. Despite that, he is anxious for human attention and we think he will make someone a great family member.

From her wiggly nub of a tail (common to Aussies) to her freckled muzzle, Hannah is a beauty. This 3-year-old Aussie mix is a calm, sweet, well-mannered girl at home. Although she plays in short bursts, she’s very fond of just "vegging out." She's soft and fluffy – perfect for petting and snuggling. She LOVES riding in the car.
Hannah likes being outside – on walks or runs – but responds reactively to other dogs. She’s in training to be less reactive, and is highly motivated by training treats. Hannah’s affectionate with her foster family and visitors in their home, but shouldn’t be in a home with small kids or in a home or yard where there is kid traffic. She’s loyal to her “pack,” plus already house and crate trained. She weighs about 60 lbs. and is spayed, vaccinated, tested for heartworm disease, de-wormed and microchipped.
Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more info about Hannah.
Moose is a 4 year old female who would do best as an only dog in an active family home with a fenced yard. Moose is good on a leash and listens well. Moose will be protective of her home but warms up fairly quickly. She does best with women but will warm up to men once she trusts them. She has a docked tail so she does the typical Aussie Wigglebutt when she is happy. Moose loves to have her belly scratched and loves to sit and cuddle with you.
Please e-mail email@example.com for more info about Moose.
Mickey is a 1-1/2 year old male aussie mix. He is wonderfully athletic,high energy and has great dog to dog skills. He loves to play with other willing dogs.
He is house broke and quiet and comfortable in a crate. He is ok in the house when he is not looking for something to chew. Hanging around the house with quiet dogs and people is something he really enjoys.
He loves attention from someone he trusts and enjoys stroking, grooming and cuddling with someone with kind hands. He is learning to interact with people with toys. He is learning some coping skills which, hopefully, will help him with his trust issues. He loves training games.
Mickey is a special needs kind of a dog. He startles easily and often. When startled he he can act aggressive and defensive.
At this point he is afraid of strangers, especially men , and does not willingly warm up. He has a big voice and uses it often. He needs a fenced yard and plenty of exercise .
His forever home needs to be with people who are patient, dog savvy, and loving enough to bring out the best in this boy. He has a lot to offer.
Russell is an young-adult male who weighs about 20 pounds. Russell is a tough little guy and has a lot of the characteristics of being a puppy mill dog. He is learning how to not be afraid of the world. Russell came into Northwest MN Aussie Rescue in September and finds his security in a crate or with other small aussies. Russell is learning to trust people and that there is a lot more to the world than a life inside a crate. Russell is crate-trained and house-trained but still needs a schedule. Russell needs a home where they will understand and work with his fears. He will require a fenced yard for his own safety as he is still learning to walk with a leash. Russell has a long way to go but is still young enough to learn that the world isn't always such a scary place.
