Frankie's Story...
Frankie oh Frankie, are you my lover boy? Frankie, named in honor of old blue eyes himself (Frank Sinatra) is a stunning 2.5 year old full blood Australian Shepherd. If the eyes don’t have you, his sweet nature will win you over! Frankie is a lover and a typical Velcro Aussie. Frankie must have felt like he won the lottery when he came into ASRM! No longer does Frankie have to roam the streets looking for food, no more dog pound, no more getting tied up outside all alone, no more being sick. You see, no one took proper care of Frankie and he contracted Heart Worms. So, instead of learning the basic skills all dogs should learn to get ready for adoption, Frankie had to go through months of grueling Heart Worm treatment, he was not allowed to run or play, BUT he made it!!! * He has beat Heart Worms butt and will live to enjoy the rest of his long life. Now, he is ready to go. He is housebroken and crate trained, he loves to ride in the car. Frankie plays well with other dogs, he chases the cat but is wiggling his butt as he does. He loves to play ball, knows all of his basis commands, sit, down, stay and come. AND Frankie has earned his Canine Good Citizen!!! What a guy this Frankie is! Now all he needs is Frankie oh Frankie, is he your lover boy? To meet Frankie, fill out an adoption application today.

Frankie is neutered, current on vaccinations and has a micro-chip. He is currently on heartworm preventative and frontline for flea and tick prevention. Frankie is being fostered near St Louis, MO. He is 2.5 years old and weighs 45 pounds. ASRM recommends a fenced yard because Frankie is a social butterfly.

* Frankie came to ASRM heartworm positive, he will need to be checked twice a year for heartworms, or until the veterinarian says it is no longer necessary. Most dogs live a normal, long healthy life after HW treatment.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Frankie, a Washington 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 Washington, or seeking a Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Washington.

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