Ginny's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Ginny's Story...
One word to describe me? Happy. I would say for the most part I am happy and hopeful for what the future brings. I might have easily said nervous, but I don't think that lends to a good first impression, though it is accurate. I do tend to get a little nervous in new situations or meeting new people. But I don't think it wholly defines me, so, yeah, happy is my one word. I like being happy and I like making people happy. I love to go for walks and just spend time with my people in general. I am doing wonderfully with my crate training and I am pretty well house trained if I get kept on a consistent schedule. I adore children of any age, so long as they are respectful. The more love I get, the happier I get! I’m great with other dogs large or small, and even the cats I have been introduced to. I would say happy is how I like to have the world around me and want to get out there and contribute to it. If that sounds right up your alley then I would sure like to make your acquaintance! 5 years old-30lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes: microchip, spay, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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