Meet Mowgli, an adult Australian Shepherd male available for adoption locally.
Here is what his friends at Australian Shepherds Furever have to say about him:
Mr. Mowgli is ready for his furever family! This boy is so sweet. Mowgli is a typical velcro pup.
He wants to be where you are. He loves to snuggle and at times he thinks he is a lapdog. He loves to lay on his back and have his belly rubbed, and frequently makes us laugh by just plopping over.
He doesn’t like thunder or loud noises like the vacuum, but his fear just makes him snuggly. He was very scared of the groomer when we took him, so he might need to ease into that. He does very well in his crate and is obsessed with treats.
He knows basic commands and with a little consistency could be well trained. He has a quirk where he barks at new men he meets for about 3 minutes — then plops over for a belly rub?
