Shelby's Story...
Introducing Shelby.

Shelby is a 6 month old girl who, through no fault of her own, finds herself in need of a home. A friend of the rescue called us and explained Shelby's situation to us. Here's what happened, and it happns way too often...

Boy meets puppy, boy falls in love with the irresistible cuteness of puppy. Boy goes to bank and gets money and buys puppy from a breeder. Boy promises to love her forever and ever. Six months later, boy realizes that he didn't reseach the kind of dog he purchased. Boy does not have time for a high energy puppy, puppy begins to outsmart boy. Boy remembers that he has a distant Aunt Ethel who had a farm. Puppy would be happier on the farm, right? Boy drops off un vetted, unspayed, puppy at his sweet Aunt Ethel's home. Aunt Ethel loves this puppy but she does not have a fenced in yard, or the income to properly vet puppy. Aunt Ethel's good friend, Betty, catches wind of the situation and is mad. Poor Ethel, with her golden heart has not gotten herself into a pickle. Betty calls rescue, rescue picks up puppy, promises to vet and find a home where puppy will actually be loved forever.

So that's Shelby's first 6 months in a nutshell. Shelby has no been fully vetted and is living in a foster home. Her adoption fee is $500 and includes all her vaccinations, heart worm, flea and tick preventative, spay surgery, microchip, health certificate and transportation from Memphis to your area upon adoption.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shelby, a Hagerstown Australian Cattle Dog puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Cattle Dog for sale in Hagerstown, or seeking a Australian Cattle Dog puppy from a breeder in Hagerstown.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hagerstown 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 Hagerstown 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 Cattle Dog breeders who help with Australian Cattle Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hagerstown paves the way for another one to be saved.
