Adopt Dustin Henderson a Australian Shepherd / Airedale Terrier / Mixed dog in
Hi, I'm Dustin Henderson but all my friends call me Dusty! I'm a one-year-old, 55- pound, Spaniel & Border Collie mix (I think!). I have some wonderful qualities and I'm a very handsome doggo, but I also have some behavioral challenges that I am working on and I require an experienced adopter. Please look beyond my handsome pics and read on to learn more about me. Here are all the ways I'm an awesome dog: - I'm house trained and crate trained. I'm working on my leash training and making great progress! - I love to get outside for walking, hiking, and playing fetch. I also enjoy napping afterward just as much. - I'm very smart, treat-motivated, and eager to please so I pick up on training quickly. - Once I know & trust you, I'm a sweet and lovable boy. I give kisses and love to be pet. - I like playing with other dogs around my size whose energy & demeanor are a complement to my own. Here are the areas where my behavior is a work in progress and why I need an adopter with dog behavior experience: - I have "stranger danger". New people are scary to me so I try to be even scarier by barking and lunging. Once I know and trust you, I am a lovable, sweet boy but it will take me several meetings to get to that point with a new person. - I have some anxiety. It doesn't bother me too much when things are quiet & peaceful. But sometimes when things around me are busy or too active, I get a little overwhelmed. - Because of my behavior, I need a quiet home with adults only. I may not be a perfect dog, but I'm still a very good boy. I love the people in my life who I know & trust and they love me too. I'm sure there is someone out there for me who will teach me that life is not so scary and will help me to build my confidence, trust humans, and be the bestest doggo I can be!
