Hi there!
I am new to the forum, I have been a LONG time aussie lover and I am so excited to be adopting one next week.
Shadow is a 10 month old Red merle who is gorgeous. I haven't met him (5 hours away) but have heard all about him. He is a miniature Aussie but is on the bigger side (40lbs). Shadow's parents are registered but his litter was not and now the breeder is retired.
We are very excited to have him join our family (just my boyfriend and I). We are an active couple and we are dying to share it with Shadow (thinking of changing that, he doesn't look like a Shadow).
I was wondering if anyone can give me pointers on bringing in a teenage aussie. Apparently he loves dogs but takes a little while to warm up to humans. His other flaw is that he growls at people when they first come into the home.
We don't have a lot of friends so that isn't really a problem.
We haven't met his personality yet but we would love to get him into agility and doing a job.
I was a dog trainer and am now a dog groomer, so depending on him he will be able to come to work with me which will be great for our bonding relationship.
I would love to attach a picture but I have no idea how to do that. He is gorgeous though.
Thanks, I hope that I become part of the aussie group next Thursday!
