Kepler, Australian shepherd mix
Kepler is a male Australian shepherd mix in the care of All Breed Rescue & Training.
No other pets please: Kepler is looking for home without other dogs or cats. All Breed Rescue & Training also thinks Kepler will do best in a home without small children. He is already neutered, has had all his shots, and he is house-trained.
Notes on Kepler:
I'm a shy boy who is easily frightened but am working on building my confidence. I love to bask in the sun on a warm day or a snowy one. I love to be in the know and will follow you around if you let me. I howl at sirens, so please don't be alarmed when I show off my singing voice.

More about Lucy:
I am a bit afraid of being alone for long periods of time, but once I know you will come home to me, I will be by your side for whatever you want to do. I do get super excited when meeting people, so I will need some work to learn not to jump up and how to walk nicely on a leash.
