Sweetheart looking for a new beginning. This gorgeous blue merle Australian shepherd mix is looking for a fresh start in a new home. Hope is a tender soul. Shy to start, she warms up quickly once she gets to know you. You'll find yourself smitten with her sweet and playful nature. She has the most beautiful swirly coat of blues, grays and browns that just calls out for rubs and snuggles and friendly scratches behind the ears! Hope relishes every moment of affection and will reward you back tenfold. Hope is not a candidate for leash-training; she needs a hands-on family willing to carry her to those annual vet appointments. Who couldn't use an extra helping hand sometimes! Hope also needs a fenced-in yard with direct access from the house. On rare occasions, Hope may forget her manners and nip at dangling fingers when excited. Hope will thrive in a steady and calm home environment. She dearly wants to please and deserves a special someone to love her in a truly forever home. Do you have the steady arms to welcome sweet Hope into your family? Hope is between 3-5 years of age. Housebroken, spayed and up-to-date on all vaccinations.
