Astro's Info...

Astro's Story...
Astro – Male, 11-12 weeks old. Australian Shepherd. Astro is the sweet, quiet observer of the litter. He is a little smaller than his brothers. He loves exploring in the yard, being held, playing with his brothers, napping and playing with toys. He listens well when called for such a young puppy. He is mostly white with brown / blue eyes. He would make an excellent dog for an active family – not a couch potato dog!
Medical: Mild multiple ocular anomaly – can see from both eyes with mildly impaired vision – no issues expected

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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