Dooley's Story...
Hi everyone, this is Dooley. He came from the MCDC as a stray. Dooley was very fearful and reactive at the shelter so he is now in a rescue. We will be working on his fears, both crate and leash training, and getting him the necessary surgery. Since being here he has been a quiet little lamb, getting to know neighbor John, and tolerating a lot of heavy-duty brushing. He will be here for awhile until I get to know his personality better in order to make a good match for him. PDC right? 3 years old, 29 pounds.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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