Ready for the perfect family dog? Then you've come to the right place. Today, it's time to meet Dale. A super-friendly Australian Shepherd / Smooth Collie mix who's looking for his forever home.

Dale is 10 months old and is an Australian Shepherd & Smooth Collie Mix. He's very athletic and is always ready for a new task or adventure! Chasing tennis balls for hours would be top on this guy's 'to do' list. He will need some basic obedience and leash work, which is an awesome bonding experience!

Dale had a nice home, but his owner died, and Dale found himself in a high kill shelter down south. He was rescued by the Animal Welfare Society in New Milford, and that's why he's now our featured Pet of the Week. If you are looking for a young and fun dog, Dale is your dude.

Let's Meet Dale:
