Dexter's Story...
Looking for a low-maintenance dog that is friendly and gets along with almost everyone he meets? Dexter's your boy! This 5-year old Aussie/Lab mix we rescued from Shasta County would be a great dog for first time dog owners or families with young children. •Super sweet and mellow •Love bug who enjoys snuggling •Walks pretty well on a leash. He will pull a little bit when he sees other dogs, but greets them calmly just sniffing. •Done well with the toddler in his foster home and is incredibly gentle and calm in meeting several neighbor kids of all sizes. •Food motivated and takes treats very gently. •Loves to be with people so will cry a little if crated and left alone •Loves to play in the water Dexter enjoys sunning himself in the yard and would be happy with a short walk around the neighborhood once a day.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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