Rusty's Story...
3-4 years old - Male - Lab/Heeler mix - 55 lbs
Rusty is very comfortable being a family dog. He is familiar with dog doors and how to act around people and inside a home. He loves riding in the truck and has become very attached to his person - Mike at this moment. Rusty is scared to death of thunderstorms. He hides and shakes so hard he vibrates. Unhappily he's a little fence climber, so he'll need a good fenced in back yard. He is very good with other dogs. He's calm and quiet. We still can't believe someone didn't move heaven and earth to find him. We do not know his attitude about cats. But with people - wonderful. He is already microchipped. And he has had all vaccines including leptospirosis and canine flu. He'll get neutered in a couple days.
Rusty is an absolute joy. One of those sweet, sweet dogs that you just can't believe was Code Red Critical in an Animal Shelter.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rusty, a Austin Labrador Retriever/Blue Heeler dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Blue Heeler for sale in Austin, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Blue Heeler dog from a breeder in Austin.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Austin 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 Austin 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 Labrador Retriever/Blue Heeler breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Blue Heeler rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Austin paves the way for another one to be saved.
