Name: Augustus
Age: 2 years
Breed: Australian Shepherd
Gender: Male
Weight: 60 pounds

Augustus (or Gus) is a 2 year old, red tri Aussie boy who was taken in by a Good Samaritan and surrendered to Carolina Hearts when no one came to claim him. He is an absolute sweet heart who LOVES to rough house with his foster brothers but is oh so gentle with the toddler in his foster home. He’s interested in playing with the kitties in the home – but does correct easily as long as his buddies aren’t there to egg him on.

If you’re looking for a big Aussie, Gus is your guy! He is tall (easily 23″ at the shoulder) and while a bit underweight right now, we expect him to be over 60 pounds once he’s filled out. Gus is crate and house trained and working on his manners (he’s already learned sit!). Thus far he’s been a good moderate energy and is pretty goofy once riled up (he does have the potential to herd a bit – so, as always, he would need supervision with children while playing).

Augustus is up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and neutered. He is currently fostered in Pittsboro, NC.
