Barney's Story...
We first met Barney in August of 2014, when we pulled him from a neglectful situation. He was extremely skinny and had a terrible skin and eye infection. He had slipped a disc in his back because he didn't have enough fat and muscle to support everything. We weren't sure if he was ever going to walk again. Shortly after the Judge sided with us a rescue had pulled him and his sister Bailey from us. Today, Barney, is doing amazing. After gaining weight and some therapy Barney is a new dog. He loves all other dogs from 13 month old puppies to seniors like him. He can not only walk again but he loves to run! When you look at Barney you see the grey on his face but his personality is like he's a puppy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Barney, a Schererville Blue Heeler dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Blue Heeler for sale in Schererville, or seeking a Blue Heeler dog from a breeder in Schererville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Schererville 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 Schererville 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 Blue Heeler breeders who help with Blue Heeler rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Schererville paves the way for another one to be saved.
