Pet Allies in Show Low AZ

Shawn is two years old and spent this past weekend with "Howie" our favorite trainer. Howie reports Shawn is a loveable goof, intelligent, house-trained, good riding in a vehicle and walks well on a leash.  He is intelligent, knows "no, down, sit & come" and is progressing with "stay".  Shawn loves hugs, pets and rubs and is very trainable, being highly motivated with treats.  He is not aggressive with people or with other dogs.  He can still be startled from behind or with fast movement and loud sounds but calms when you say, "it's ok".  Shawn is a handsome guy, athletic and playful, mostly white with black markings. He has medium length beautiful fur that looks like it has hints of rhinestones in it. 
Shawn has a great nose and enjoys treeing and playing with squirrels.  He does very well with hiking 6 - 8 miles and with 3 - 4 mile runs - start early as he is not a huge fan of heat.  He is a very loyal dog, who really wants a person, typical of a Border Collie/Australian Shepherd. He is about 45#. He's best with other dogs his size or larger, as he plays rough.  Shawn is neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped.  Please call 928 537-8009 to arrange a meeting as Shawn is living with one of our great Foster Families.  Adoption fee $75.00.

A home visit may be part of the adoption process. To start the adoption process, an online adoption application is available at    

Pet Allies, also known as the home of the Barkin Basement Thrift Store at the corner of White Mountain Road and Fawnbrook in Show Low, finds non-lethal solutions to pet overpopulation by offering low-cost spay/neuter services and placing homeless pets in caring homes.  Pet Allies, a non-profit organization, is funded by donations from the community, sales at the Barkin Basement Thrift Store, grants and adoptions.  In October 2012 Pet Allies also entered into a contract with the City of Show Low to operate the City’s animal control shelter where animals may be seen and adopted.
