Look at this boy!!

We think it’s official – Comet is the CUTEST Aussie, like, ever.

Take a look at this sweet boy! He’s one to two years old, and on the small side for a standard male Aussie at right around 40 pounds. Comet is a dilute red tricolor, which makes him stand out in a crowd for sure. Dilutes do come with caveats, however – Comet will likely always battle skin sensitivity, as most dilute dogs do. Not to worry, though! So long as he is kept on a high quality diet (we suggest grain-free fish based kibble) and fleas are well controlled, he should be just fine.

Comet is a super Velcro snuggle bug! He rides great in a car, and as you can see from his photos, he enjoys outings with his people, too. Comet gets along well with other dogs that respect his space, but he will correct a dog that gets in his face without warning. Therefore, he would probably do best as an only dog or with other adult dogs that won’t pester him.

Comet is fine with dog-savvy cats, but in true Aussie form, he will chase a cat that runs from him. We haven’t tested him with small children yet, but we will soon. He has adored every adult human he has met. He also walks great on a leash and will stay in a kennel without much protest unless he needs to potty.

Comet is available now to the right family. He is being fostered in Hickory, North Carolina.
