Walter's Info...

Walter's Story...
Walter is a sweet gentleman of a dog, named by our assistant after Walther Matthau. He was a sheriff department impound, found at the entrance gate to a mine. He had several chronic injuries - looks like someone shot him at some point in the past, leaving him with a front leg that doesn't hold his weight. He is also blind, so it's a mystery how he found his way to the mine, unless someone just dumped him there.

Despite his medical issues, he is friendly and easy to handle, tolerates new people well, and rode quietly in the car with the deputy. Walter doesn't seem very interested in other dogs, but is always ready for cuddling with anybody who needs a hug. Walter will need a home with a fenced yard, and preferably with no stairs to navigate.

Walter has been neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. Blood work prior to surgery was all normal. We did not amputate his bad leg, as while he doesn't use it, it doesn't seem to bother or impede him.

2-5-16: Walter was adopted by a lovely family, who also adopted a dog from us almost exactly 5 years ago. Here's to Bailey and Wally and hoping the get along well for many and long!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Walter, a Chewelah Australian Cattle Dog/Australian Shepherd dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Cattle Dog/Australian Shepherd for sale in Chewelah, or seeking a Australian Cattle Dog/Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Chewelah.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chewelah 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 Chewelah 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 Cattle Dog/Australian Shepherd breeders who help with Australian Cattle Dog/Australian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chewelah paves the way for another one to be saved.
