Australian Shepherds are such loyal dogs. Rescue like I did. Mine was a neurotic wreck, but by applying the the calming influence of discipline inspired by the walk as introduced by Cesar Millan, he became the the most noble, calm dog ever. Everyone marvels at the nervous dog I brought home when I rescued him and the assured, wonderful companion we all enjoy. Rescue a dog of any breed. You won't be sorry. Not all dogs are as bad off as Jack. He was considered "unadoptable".
