Ders's Story...
Name: Ders
Breed: Sheltie/Shepherd
Age: Puppy
Gender: Male

Ders, named for a TV character known to be 'not the sharpest knife in the drawer', is a very sensitive, gentle, extremely mild natured puppy seeking a home. We know mom was a Sheltie/Shepherd, and we think dad was an Akita or Malamute or something huge and fuzzy. At 9 weeks old, they are 20 pounds already! Raised in a daycare home, he is very well handled and used to attention. Ders is a little nervous nellie around new things, the quietest of the litter but also makes the best use of his energy... he plays hard, walks well on the leash, and uses his energy appropriately. Someone who wants a dog they can train will appreciate him, as he likes to learn and train. House training and crate training has begun, but at 9 weeks, you have a long ways to go still. Please email with questions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ders, a Minneapolis Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog for sale in Minneapolis, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog puppy from a breeder in Minneapolis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis 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!

In fact, there are even Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog rescue.
