Chama's Info...

I am a special needs pet.

Chama's Story...
Chama is a special pup for a special adopter. She is sweet, playful, vivacious, has a brilliant mind and a lion's spirit.

Chama's litter had a medical crisis early in their lives, at age three weeks, that affected two puppies - we lost one, with Chama being the other. With test results having come back negative for two different theories, what it was remains a mystery. All we know is that it was neurological.

Chama has made amazing strides in the past few weeks, going from a puppy who could barely stand to really motoring around, although she does have neurological deficit in all four legs, and perhaps impaired vision. She has been seeing a physical therapist who has good hope for her, feeling she will continue to make strides but likely will always have some level of impairment.

If you have been hoping to nurture a new pet in your life, Chama could be the one for you. She is personality plus, very pretty, and impossible not to love and root for. Her physical therapist has kindly extended the offer to work with her adopter without cost. For that reason, we would need for you to be within one hour of Charlestown, RI.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chama, a West Warwick 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 West Warwick, or seeking a Australian Shepherd puppy from a breeder in West Warwick.

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