We adopted Austin after the death of our 14 year old Aussie. We found him online at The Pet Adoption League in Emmett, Idaho. Austin came to them through the local veterinary clinic, having been dropped off by a woman who claimed she had found him on the road. It turned out he had suffered an injury to his left rear leg which had healed improperly. The shelter gave our sweet boy all the love and care he had been denied. The vet performed surgery to try to fix some of the damage, brought him up to date on shots and neutered him. He still does not have full mobility but gets around very well…he runs like the wind.

While at the shelter, Austin won the hearts of all who took such good care of him. We were vetted and as soon as we passed we drove to Emmett to meet our boy. It was love at first sight. This wonderful boy is the most loving, happy companion. He is amazing at learning new things, is well behaved and responds to any request or command. He is always happy, loves everyone, loves other dogs he has met and loves to go wherever his people go.

We are blessed to have been able to be part of his family. He has stolen our hearts and brings joy to every day.

Rescued is truly the best breed!
