Crosby's Story...
*****Adoption Pending*****

Here’s Crosby, a 4 year old neutered red merle male who weighs about 55 pounds. He is housetrained, loves people and is great with cats and other dogs. Crosby is calm in the house and good with kids. He is med/high energy and needs to learn manners on a leash (he pulls very badly and often grabs the leash to play tug) but behaves fairly decent on a flexi. He can be really mouthy with people's hands and arms and throws in a nose punch to your face once in a while out of exuberance. He just doesn't seem to know how to express his excitement and happiness appropriately. Crosby was turned over to rescue due to being picked up by animal control multiple times, so while he seems to have a good recall we have not spent a lot of time with him off leash. If you are up for some training, this guy has a very stable personality and will be a ton of fun. He is a clown with an extra fast butt wiggle.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Crosby, a Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis, or seeking a Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Minneapolis.

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