Arik's Story...
Anzo and Arik are two 5 week old pups that came to us with their mother who is a 1/2 Papillion 1/2 Sheltie. We are unsure what dad is but these babies are adorable regardless. Anzo is the larger pup and fluffier. Arik is the smaller of the two and has more of a short, soft, glossy coat than his brother. Anzo is more curious and adventurous while Arik is laid back and more calm. Both are darling puppies that will be available for adoption Saturday February 7th, 2015. We are taking applications in the meantime.Adoption fee is $225.00 for this pet. This generally includes age appropriate vaccines, spay/neuter, a wellness exam, dewormer, fecal, hw and flea preventative that is given while in our care, microchip and sometimes registration depending on the company, as well as any other medications or procedures needed while in our care. email raesance@gmail.com for an adoption application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Arik, a Metairie Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Papillon puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Papillon for sale in Metairie, or seeking a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Papillon puppy from a breeder in Metairie.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Metairie 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 Metairie 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 Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Papillon breeders who help with Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Papillon rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Metairie paves the way for another one to be saved.
