Novah is a handsome 3yr old red-bi male neutered Aussie, and as a special added bonus – a tail! Weighing in at a compact 50 lbs, he is not too big to snuggle on your lap (one of his favorite activities).

Novah is very polite and a pleasure to walk on a leash. He is an expert at "sit" and is learning other commands. When on walks he will bark at people and dogs, but he is easily distracted with treats. Novah is an excellent back seat driver and loves to ride in the car. He is crate trained and potty trained. He will chew a toy but nothing else. 

He does some resource guarding with toys and the resident dogs. He gives them a low growl to warn them to back off. This is improving but will need to be monitored and managed. He does not guard his food. 

Novah would do best in an Aussie-savvy home without young children (under 12). He has a tendency to herd. He is a typically super-smart Aussie and needs activities to help him build his confidence. Obedience training, herding, scent work or agility would be great ways to help him to feel good about himself.

He has been cat-tested, and while his interest was not intense, it was enough that we would recommend a cat-free home for Novah.

Novah deeply wants someone to connect with. He is very loving, calm and, on the 1-10 velcro scale, he's scores 11. He does fine with men and women, shy and hesitant at first, but warms up quickly.

Novah is fostered in Rochester, NY.
