  Autumn, 8 months Female Husky, Shepherd, Collie  Mix

Autumn Autumn

Autumn is ADOPTED!!! Much thanks to her foster family, the Macleods of Bedford, MA. She came to us as a frightened Collie, Husky mix. Her dad was Duke who was an Australian Shepherd, Collie mix and we placed the mom, a Shepherd, husky mix. She was born in TN and was shy so was working with a trainer and made tremendous progress. She is in a foster home now that she is here and she is doing great. She is shy at first but she does come around and when you are slow, patient and gentle with her. Once she comes around she likes to be pet and will even give you kisses. She likes to throw her toys around and play fetch with herself. Autumn also likes to lay around and relax once she has run around. She loves other dogs and will stay outside for hours chasing or being chased. She is getting better on leash then when she first came, but she has not mastered it yet and still needs some training with that. She rides wonderfully in the car. Autumn is house trained and crate trained; in fact she loves her crate and uses it as her “safe spot”. Autumn is being fostered with other dogs and we think she would be better in a home with a dog to play with. She loves her foster brother, Bernie. Autumn does need a fenced in yard because although she is coming around she is still fearful and feels safer in a fence. Autumn is not at all aggressive with people or dogs but may do better in a home with teens and older because small children might scare her. Experience with shy dogs would be best so that the transition into your home goes smoothly. All in all Autumn is a fabulous dog and she deserves a great home. Autumn can be seen in her foster home once we receive your application.
