Chelsea's Info...

Chelsea's Story...
Someone knew where one of our volunteers lived and her reputation for helping dogs. Two young boys were working in her yard when a car stopped and pushed 2 young dogs out in front of her house. "You can take them, if you want!" he called. This was the best thing that could have happened to them, we welcomed Brody and Chelsea into our rescue that day.

Chelsea is Shepherd mix approximately 8 months old. She is small weighing in at 30 pounds. She's slim and petite. Her collar was so tight she had a fungal infection on her neck.

Chelsea is bright and playful like a puppy. She loves to play tug with her toys. She dances around, over and under the bigger dogs. She hides under the deck and races around the yard. We know she wasn’t treated very well wherever she came from. Poor little Chelsea is quick to cower and crawl in submission. We are working on her self confidence. She is learning to walk on a leash, it appears she had never been walked on one before. She goes limp like a sack of potatoes. She's terrified of a crate. Who knows what this sweet dog went through before she was dumped.

But that's changing! Finally safe in a household of happy dogs, Chelsea is opening up. She's running around, exploring. She's staked out a dog bed for herself. She's learning to come when she's called--her head up and her eyes bright. Groveling and crawling and turning into a sack of potatoes isn't necessary any more.

Chelsea would love her own family and would do best in a home with another dog to continue bringing her forward and make her feel safe. She needs reassurance that she'll never be hurt again. Once she gets that...all things are possible!

To help Chelsea get acclimated to her new home, the adoption fee includes 1 complimentary training session with the rescue’s trainer.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chelsea, a Rochester Hills Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Rochester Hills, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Rochester Hills.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Rochester Hills 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 Rochester Hills 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 Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Rochester Hills paves the way for another one to be saved.
