Shamus's Info...

I am a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Shamus's Story...
Shamus is a sweet and precious little male. DOB is estimated at 3/4/16. He is full of puppy play, loves to give puppy kisses and will make someone a wonderful addition to their family. He absolutely loves people and loves to play with other dogs.

Shamus is a special needs case because he was rescued with a birth defect. He has double lactating patellas (his knee caps were not where they needed to be). He had reconstructive surgery to fix this on both his back legs. Shamus still walks with a limp because due to the deformity, his back left leg is shorter than his right back leg. This will never resolve itself, so this limp will exist.

Shamus does not know that he has a special need. He is an amazingly happy puppy that loves life. He has been surrounded by love and only wants to give it in return. He deserves a special home, preferably a home with children as he tends to gravitate to them. He loves other dogs. He can go into a home with another dog, but the vet prefer it be with another dog that is either smaller, or one that wont play too rough.

He is up to date with his vaccines, including his booster, rabies and bordatella. He has also been microchipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shamus, a Old Bridge Whippet/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Whippet/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) for sale in Old Bridge, or seeking a Whippet/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) puppy from a breeder in Old Bridge.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Old Bridge 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 Old Bridge 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 Whippet/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) breeders who help with Whippet/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Old Bridge paves the way for another one to be saved.
