As some of you know ive been trying to find an Australian Shepherd dog for my dad to adopt. We had 2 growing up on our farm and they are the only dog my dad will own. Our 2 lived to be 14 yrs old. Long happy spoiled lives.
Well I havent had much luck. It seems they are a rare breed in our area.
I finally found one. A yr old girl aussie. The owners want to adopt her out because she has started to pick on their older dog. @ least its better than getting rid of their old dog =(.
So ne ways I wanted to show her how much of an animal lover my family is, So I sent her some pictures of puppy. I think by looking at her pictures you can tell she is well taken care of and LOVED!
Well the lady writes me back "will you be bringing your dog to visit your dad?, I dont want our dog to get hurt"
So pretty much just because my dog looks like a 'pit' she is going to hurt another dog??? What is wrong with people? Puppy wuldnt hurt a fly!
Almost made me cry, why dont people give dogs a chance? Why do they judge by looks?
I will let you know what ends up happening.
Thanks all.... :-/

Just wondered if you ever found some Aussies to adopt. If you didn't you can try contacting the Aussie Rescue & Placement Helpline, Inc. at arphinc@aol.com We got ours through them. First time I ever got a dog that way. Believe me it is the best way. They handle to whole thing all over the USA .
