Shasta's Info...

I am already spayed, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, and up to date with shots.

Shasta's Story...
Shasta, pulled from a high kill shelter in rural Alabama and currently being fostered regionally in RI, is approximately a purebred American Eski. She is smaller than she appears in her pics....smallest range of medium. She is a very sweet girl with a delicate soul who has had a hard time of things and is looking for someone with a nurturing heart; she was very scared when we collected her. She absolutely loves being held, be it curled in your lap or being carried around. Shasta appears to be well housebroken, and lets you know when she needs to go. She does not appear to have leash experience, so our best advice is to either have an attached fenced yard or have some experience in teaching a softer adult dog to walk on leash, as that will take patience and time. Dog tolerant, she seems good with all people and will make a marvelous pet! Due to her being a little scared and having some things to learn (leashing walking, etc.) we do not recommend her as a first time dog, but she will be very rewarding for someone with a rescuer's heart to adopt.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shasta, a West Warwick American Eskimo Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Eskimo Dog for sale in West Warwick, or seeking a American Eskimo Dog dog from a breeder in West Warwick.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in West Warwick 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 West Warwick 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 American Eskimo Dog breeders who help with American Eskimo Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in West Warwick paves the way for another one to be saved.
