Q: What’s up, Doc?

A: I’m available for adoption, that’s what’s up!

Meet Doc – a handsome and energetic 2-year-old blue merle weighing in around 55 pounds. Prior to coming into the Rescue, Doc lived with a human with limited mobility so he missed out on many socialization opportunities in his younger days. The upside of all that time at home means he’s both house-trained and crate-trained.

Doc’s a super-snuggler as well as a Ninja. He’s super quiet as he moves around, especially when trying to sneak into bed with you. When he’s feeling Velcro, he’s content to lay at your feet and keep you company. He likes to chew on bones and loves to toss his squeaky tennis ball around for fun (did you check out his video?). He’s a good walking buddy and will also go on an occasional run, if you like.

Doc knows several commands (sit, come, kennel) and is eager to learn more with you. He loves wrestling and running around the back yard with his full-size Aussie foster brother, as well as playing fetch with a tennis ball. Doc prefers slow introductions. Once acquainted, he’s great with both adults and kids. He absolutely adores puppies and is also good around cats.

Doc is current on age-appropriate vaccinations and has been fecal tested (negative), micro-chipped and neutered. His adoption fee is $350. He’s being fostered in the St. Louis area.

  1. He’s beautiful and I wish I could adopt him! I also wish his fee wasn’t so high. His name Doc is interesting—my uncle flew Air Force jets in Vietnam and the name on his flight helmet was Doc. He and my aunt live in Phoenix now and everyone calls him Doc to this day!
    My dog passed away suddenly on Sept. 18 and I just got her ashes back yesterday from my vet. They are in. Cherry wood box with a brass name plate and will go in the bookcase with the other two dogs and cat.
