Special to The Examiner
Shepherds are wonderful dogs. They are extremely loyal, highly intelligent, and obedient. Like most dogs they are eager to please their guardians. Animals Best Friends has several shepherd mixes that are looking for good homes. Harley is a shepherd heeler mix who is 4 years young. He is a laid back guy that prefers to hang out with cats. He likes his toys and fenced yard. Harley is kennel trained and might be best as the only dog. Sampson is an Australian shepherd mix and is 1 year old. He loves attention from his caregivers at ABF. He knows "sit," redirects pretty easily and is kennel trained. Sampson loves to play in the water and gets along well with other dogs. He is a real sweetheart! Animals Best Friends also have two new shepherd mixes. They are both babies at 4 months old, which is a great age for training. Oliver is a sweet little boy who already walks well on a leash and is good at keeping his kennel clean. Heidi is a beautiful little girl who loves her toys. Both of these kids have sweet dispositions and would make great family dogs. If you are looking for a great family dog and think that one of these kids might be a good fit please go to our website at www.animalsbestfriends.org and complete an application. ABF does home visits and two-week trials to make sure that the family and animal are a good fit.
