Maxwell's Story...
DECEMBER 22, 2013: Maxwell is a 6-8 month old black lab/border collie mix with ONE BLUE EYE and ONE BROWN EYE. MAXWELL was a stray in Bayard, NM, and was taken to Puppy Dog Ranch Rescue and Sanctuary by Bayard's NO KILL Animal Control Officer. MAXWELL was a wild child, probably having been kept in a yard, unattended, before being cared for by the ACO. He is approximately 6-8 months old, is very vocal; by talking to you, but is not a barker, is playful, feisty, very affectionate, is now quickly learning his house training and appropriate manners, loves children, is not a jumper, is now current on shots and is being neutered tomorrow, (12/23). He loves playing with our other 15 dogs, both large and small, but also loves running and playing in the snow and the puppy pool.

FEBRUARY 17, 2014 UPDATE: Maxwell is coming along nicely, and is a medium energy boy. Still very vocal when wanting to talk to you, which is very sweet. He plays well with all other dogs, large and small and is not a jumper or barker. He loves to walk around with a rubber bone or tennis ball in his mouth. He is a sweet, sweet boy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Maxwell, a Arenas Valley Australian Kelpie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Kelpie for sale in Arenas Valley, or seeking a Australian Kelpie dog from a breeder in Arenas Valley.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Arenas Valley already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Arenas Valley breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Australian Kelpie breeders who help with Australian Kelpie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Arenas Valley paves the way for another one to be saved.
