Brodie's Story...
Brodie is a 3 year old Aussie with a tail. He is a very affectionate boy who always wants to be with his people. He does well with the dogs in his foster home. He plays well outside and settles nicely upon arriving indoors. He is on the larger size, approximately 60 lbs. Brodie walks nicely on a leash and travels well in the car. He is food motivated which makes training easy. As with all ARC dogs it is recommended that his adoptive family take a basic obedience class. He is a happy boy and likes to smile a lot....Literally and upon smiling he starts sneezing.
He goes in his crate well, and with regular monitoring has no accidents in the house.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Brodie, a Richmond 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 Richmond, or seeking a Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Richmond.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Richmond 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 Richmond 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 Richmond paves the way for another one to be saved.
