Carina's Story...
Carina - A perfect name for a beauty like me. I have so many things to tell - I was a stray that was picked up and placed in a shelter. I'm 19 mos. at 5-1-2014 and about 32lbs. I was taken to a high-kill shelter and I just knew my days were numbered, if you know what I mean. Thankfully, my angel appeared and took me out of that
horrible and scary place. THANK YOU to ‘Shaggy Dog Rescue’. I am a beautiful sweet loving girl (my beautiful eyes will make you melt). I live with my human foster parents and my foster siblings (dogs, cats and a cockatoo). I do show interest in the cats (I bark at them for a second or two) but my foster mom doesn't think I would ever harm them. I haven’t been around small children since I was rescued so my foster mom isn't sure how I would act around them. When I first came to my foster home I was so frightened . I wouldn't get close to my foster family. After a couple of days I started to let my foster mom pet me, but if she made any quick movements it really scared me. I didn't eat much when I first came here, but that has sure changed. Oh, how these humans can make the best meals! When I came in the house I would run straight to my crate. I just felt so safe there. Well, that was last week and now that I’m going on week two I have really changed, for the better of course. I am crate trained and sleep in my crate all night long. When my foster parents are gone during the day we all stay in our crates. My foster mom works part-time so we’re never crated very long during the day which is a good thing. Us furkids need plenty of outside/inside/playtime during the day. I love to lay in the den and watch TV with everyone and I’m such a lady. I’m quiet and I love to sit next to my foster Dad’s chair and let him pet me. If he’s not available, there’s always my foster mom. I’m excellent on a leash and do enjoy walks. I have
beautiful soft reddish brown fur. Oh, I forgot to mention, I’m potty trained as well and
when it’s time for a car ride I jump right in.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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