Troy's Story...
Love me tender, Love me sweet, Never let me go. You have made my life complete, And I love you so. Love me tender, Love me true, All my dreams fulfilled. For my darlin' I love you, And I always will. Love me tender, Love me long, Take me to your heart. For it's there that I belong, And we'll never part Love me tender, Love me dear,Tell me you are mine.I'll be yours through all the years, Till the end of time. - Elvis Presley 'Love Me Tender'
When asked to describe Troy, his foster mom gave all of the basic information and then she said..Love Me Tender by Elvis Presley, that's Troy. Apparently Troy has made quite an impression in just a few short weeks. Needless to say, this sweet boy, is pretty special. Troy is a 10 month old tan and black Australian Shepherd mix weighing 35 lbs. He is of a small stature and will likely not get bigger other than to fill out with a few extra needed pounds. Troy was out of time and in desperate need of a miracle. This little guy was meant to be here. He was pulled into rescue with little time to spare and his loving nature and spirit have been a testament to how 'undamaged' shelter dogs are. Troy loves with all his heart and wants nothing more than to be with his people. He is a smart little guy too. He has already mastered sit, roll over and down. He is a very calm boy, great on leash and loves going on walks. Sure he plays with toys and all but his favorite thing to do is just snuggle and be nuzzled. Troy is house trained and his potty manners are spot on with frequent reminders to avoid any accidents. In keeping with his loving tender demeanor, Troy also loves being with others. He isn't picky. He loves you, dog, cat, kid or adult, it just doesn't matter to him, he's going to love you....period. Troy is completely vetted and ready for his forever family. He is, of course, already neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, and current on all preventatives. All Troy needs now are the ones who will love him tender, true, and till the end of time because he's going to love you.....always.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Troy, a SOUTHINGTON 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 SOUTHINGTON, or seeking a Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in SOUTHINGTON.

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