Lady(courtesy post)'s Story...
Lady is a beautiful, sweet and loyal dog. She is 3 years old, spayed, current on all vax, and is heartworm negative. She is housebroken. She has always been an inside dog and is living with 4 cats. She is very protective of her turf and barks at visitors until she knows they are welcome in to our home. After someone has been in the house for a few minutes, she is very happy to greet them and loves all attention. She would be best suited in a home without children under 5, as she doesn't like being cornered. Lady needs to be an inside dog but also needs to have a secured fenced-in area where she can run, as she has herding instincts. She likes to play with the cats and has had some contact with other dogs. Lady is in foster care in Burlington, NC. For more information please, contact Lady's foster mom at: phylliscountryman@gmail.com or call #336-226-2653 Lady's adoption fee is $125. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- *******Howlin4Spirit Companion Animal Rescue******* ********Adoption Application******** Thank you, for considering adopting a rescued companion animal.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lady(courtesy post), a Rutherfordton Australian Shepherd/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Shepherd/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog for sale in Rutherfordton, or seeking a Australian Shepherd/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog from a breeder in Rutherfordton.

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