Puppy Adoption – Australian Shepherd Mix

This post may contain affiliate links. We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.

If you are considering puppy adoption, I highly recommend visiting one of your local puppy/dog rescues. In past articles I’ve talked to you about the puppy/dog rescue, Cuddly Canines. I want to do my best to help place these puppies by profiling each puppy, litter of puppies, and dogs on this blog.

***Note this dog may already be adopted as I will keep this information in my archive. Please check the Cuddly Canines website for the most recent puppies up for adoption.

Bella The Australian Shepherd Mix Puppy


Bella the Aussie Mix

Adorable Bella is a 3 month old Australian Shepherd mixed with ??? She is a happy playful girl who has lots of energy & a fun disposition.

She would do great in an active family who could take her on walks, camping trips, etc. Bella is very smart & would excel in agility training. Bella currently weighs about 15 pounds.

What is an Australian Shepherd Mix?

Bella is said to be an Australian Shepherd mix puppy. Because we know she might be mostly Australian Shepherd she may exhibit the temperament and traits of an Australian Shepherd.

From Wikipedia on Australian Shepherd temperament:

Generally the breed is an energetic dog that requires exercise and enjoys working, whether it is learning and practicing tricks, competing in dog agility, or any other physically and mentally involving activity. Other Aussies would rather be with their humans and enjoying being couch potatoes. It is usually a sweet and affectionate dog who is faithful to its owners and should be good with children. Most Australian Shepherds make wonderful family dogs, provided there is at least one shepherd-figure to act as a leader and mentor to the dog.

My shelter dog, Linus is an Australian Shepherd mix and displays the “rather be with their humans and enjoys being a couch potato” temperament. Linus is very easy going, smart, protective, and on the timid side.
