Dylan's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Dylan's Story...
Dylan is a 7 month old male purebred Aussie. He is what is called a "Lethal Aussie" which is a genetic defect when two merle Australian Shepherds are bred together resulting in offspring that are deaf and/or blind. Dylan is DEAF. He can see perfectly, and responds well to hand signals. He is still a puppy and is learning quickly. He was turned into a shelter due to his owners living on a busy street, and him being deaf. (Apparently he wasn't aware when he purchased him.) Poor Dylan is now looking for a forever home to call his own. We'd love an experienced Aussie owner, and/or someone who has researched lethal aussies. He is a very good boy who just wants to please his owner. He is great with other dogs, cats, and kids--- with just the most loving and gentle personality.

Crate trained and housebroken, working on his hand signals.

Adoption donation required. This covers altering, 6 in 1 series vaccinations to date of adoption, Bordetella Vaccination, Rabies vaccination (if over four months), Microchip, Deworming, Heartworm test (if over 6 months of age) Parasite testing, frontline, heartguard preventative, grooming, full veterinary examination, and temperament evaluation. Please e-mail for more information or go to our website for an application. Thank you very much!

All SOAR dogs go through a two week quarantine period to insure they are healthy, before being put up for adoption. If for any reason the dog does not work out in your family we will take the dog back into our care at any time during the lifetime of the dog. (We require that the said do be returned to us, as per contract. Please read further details on our main page on the last section of our adoption procedure.)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in O'fallon 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 O'fallon 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 O'fallon paves the way for another one to be saved.
