Hello!!  My name is Chandler and I am an Australian Shepherd /Lab Mix, 40 lbs & growing!  I am just 10 months old.  Last year I was living with my mom and my siblings in filthy conditions in an old house in Morgan County, KY.  Thank goodness we were rescued by Powell PAWS.  I don’t remember much about those times.  I just remember it was bad.  As a result of all that, I am afraid of many things that are unfamiliar to me.  I love routine and I love quiet time.  It makes me feel safe and happy.  Because I am a herding dog, I will do great in a home with no kids or older kids.  I am okay with other dogs, once I get to know them and I have no experience with cats.  I love to run and play, but I am most comfortable snuggling.  I am currently being fostered by a lady and her two dogs – a 7-year-old Black Lab and a 12-year-old Shepherd mix.  I am learning socialization and basic obedience and I love learning new things.  I have been told that I am very smart and I am definitely motivated by food.  I love to eat and I love impressing my foster mommy.  I already know how to sit and shake hands.  I am working on stay, lay down and heeling.  I am housebroken and crate trained.  My foster mommy works from home now, so most days I lay in her office with my foster brothers and soak up the sun.  I do remain as quiet as I can when she is working.  I am also working on my manners – which is new for me.  As I improve my social skills, you will see me at upcoming PAWS events.  I look forward to meeting you!!
