Romero's Story...
ASRM 0066. This sweet Aussie’s name is Romero. He is a black-tri and on the smaller side only 47 lbs. He has a playful demeanor with a sweetness that he just wants to kiss you with. He is a true Aussie that is a total Velcro dog and he will follow you everywhere you go. He is 4 years old. He wants to play ALL the time! He is neutered and up to date on all his shots. He is micro-chipped. He is house broken, listens to his name, sits, gives paw and listens better to a whistle than to the “come” command. He is working on his “come” command with his foster mom. He is great in the car. He does not really play fetch, he just likes to get the ball and then chew it up or throw it to himself and play with it. He does not eat all of his food at once, he likes to eat at his leisure. He has been getting vegetables like carrots, cauliflower and broccoli as treats and is learning to enjoy them. He is fair on a leash, some extra training would be good.

He is great with all dogs and people of all ages and sizes. He is curious about everything. He is also protective and will alert you when there is someone at the door, in the yard or driveway. He wants you to know that there is someone that is coming that does not live there. He will bark at new people for about 5 seconds so he can tell them that they need to come play with him. He will not jump on the bed unless invited, but he will hop up on you on the couch.

He will be an amazing companion and a boy that you will fall in love with quickly! Wait until you meet this cutie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Romero is being fostered in Northern IL. Romero is neutered, micro chipped and up to date on vaccinations. If you are interested in adopting Romero and please complete an ADOPTION APPLICATION today and reference Romero, ASRM 0066!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Washington 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 Washington 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 Shepherd breeders who help with Australian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Washington paves the way for another one to be saved.
