Cubby's Story...
Here's Cubby! This senior gentleman is looking for a special home that will love him. He is an odd and very lovable dog! He's 13 years old and came to us after his owner fell ill and could no longer care for him. At first glance, he is an older gentleman but then he gets into these brief and sudden moves where he jumps up like a senior kangaroo.

Cubby is under 20 lbs. and the perfect dog for an older person or couple looking for an easy companion. He is so easy and gentle, and after a full mouth dental we hope to see his real personality come out once his mouth feels cleaner. He is blind in one eye, does not navigate flights of stairs very well, has reasonable hearing and is a shedding type dog. He will be perfect for someone looking for a low key companion.

Check out his Facebook page for additional photos and video of Cubby!

Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

We expect that all adopted dogs will enroll in a formal dog training class with their new owners. Obedience and training classes are an excellent way to learn more about your newly adopted dog, gain handling and training experience, and improve your relationship with your pet.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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