Cowboy's Story...
*****Adoption Pending*****

Update 12/6/14: "So far, Cowboy seems to be 100% in all respects. He is the most non-reactive Aussie I have ever met. He has plenty of pep for playing chase with other dogs and plenty of love for snuggling with humans!! It is a bit overwhelming to have all 76 pounds in your lap but he is working on that. He demonstrates a lot of herding moves and will need an active life style .Of course, he needs plenty of laying around the house, as well. Did I mention that he is great in the house(he is an expert counter surfer) and in a crate. He is quite comfortable on the deck outside by the door."

Here's Cowboy, a sturdy, handsome, standard-sized blue merle boy. He is 5 years old and neutered. He was relinquished by his owner because he wouldn't stay home. He spent most of his time locked up in a cold barn which kept him from getting shot by hunters in the wilds of rural Wisconsin. In spite of this he is house broke, crate broke and craves a home where he can soak up the attention he deserves. He loves everyone, especially men. He sits on command and has almost a one hundred percent recall to his name!!
Cowboy will need a fenced yard in his new home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cowboy, a Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis, or seeking a Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Minneapolis.

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