Sweetie's Story...
Hi, I'm Sweetie - a 2 year-old, fun loving, always happy, haven't met a kid, other dog or cat I haven't liked, Australian Kelpie. I was adopted by my Dad after being returned a couple of times. My name was "Alice," but I am such a sweetie -- the name just fit! I thought I'd found my forever home, but my Dad recently passed away and my other family members made the difficult decision to help me find an environment where I can expend some of my youthful energy and get the exercise I need. My perfect home would be with someone who is home much of the time and can spend quality time with me at the dog park (MY FAV!), on long walks/hikes, and out for other fun activities! They say I can be a bit of an "escape artist" – I’m not sure what that means, but in my defense, I love my neighbors, their kids and my doggie friends so I try to visit often! I know many commands and will astound you with my bag of tricks and quick wit, but I must admit, I am not a fan of doggie crates, too short of fences (wait till you see how high I can jump!), and tall men over 6’ (including the tall wooden statue at my current home – pretty scary!). Please contact Safe Place to meet me so our adventures together can begin!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sweetie, a Colorado Springs Australian Kelpie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Kelpie for sale in Colorado Springs, or seeking a Australian Kelpie dog from a breeder in Colorado Springs.

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