Lionel's Story...
Hi! I'm Lionel! I am a laid back, easy going, tiny lion of a pup. I'm extremely gentle with every thing I encounter whether it be a person, child, dog or cat. I do like to play but I'm very relaxed and prefer lounging. I'm house trained and crate trained and I walk fabulous on a leash. I'm waiting for my forever home and someone to show me the world during the day and cuddle at night!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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