Monk's Story...
Monk is a neutered 3 year old Aussie. He is full of energy and loves to follow you around. He loves to play Frisbee and will fetch a ball. He would do best with a family/person that is very active, as he needs lots and lots of exercise. A home out in the country or a home that has a big yard with a fence would be ideal. He has been with other dogs and gets along fine with the proper introduction. He will chase squirrels, cats, and birds if allowed or is unsupervised. He does play pretty rough, so the recommended age for children would be 8 years and up. He will need work on his manners and obedience, as he can get out of hand when excited or nervous. He loves to stay active and busy. He has shown interest in starting agility training and would do well with the right instruction. If you would like a running partner, he would be an excellent choice as he loves to be on the go. He does not like thunderstorms and will hide under the bed or any small space he can find. Monk is also a great lover. He loves attention any time that he can get it. He snuggles in bed and loves to be a lap dog. If you are interested in adopting Monk, I would remind you that an Aussie definitely needs exercise! Monks fee is $175

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Monk, a La Crosse 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 La Crosse, or seeking a Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in La Crosse.

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