Harper - MEET HIM's Story...
Harper is an australian shepherd mix of approx 13 months and 30 lbs. He is a very shy and timid boy and will need to learn confidence to walk on a leash. We have committed to help this boy, so on Sept 8. 2016, he is starting a two week board and train program to gain some confidence. He gets on really well with other dogs that are larger or closer or his size and loves to run and play. He play too hard with small dogs or puppies, but he will love to play with dogs his size or larger. He does seem to be quite well house trained and will be a great dog with some patience and training.

The total adoption donation of $475 and includes the required interstate health certificate and transport , spay/neuter, shots including rabies, bordatella, parvo, lepto, distemper and canine influenza, and micro chip with a lifetime pre paid registration. The total amount is payable to Shaggy Dog Rescue which is a 501c3. .

Just as a note, if you are in Massachusetts and are adopting directly from Texas rather than from a local foster, there are new quarantine laws in effect. All rescues must be quarantined 48 hours at a state run facility, and in addition, a second interstate health certificate is required to be issued by a Massachusetts vet. This new law adds an additional cost of $125.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Harper - MEET HIM, a Woonsocket 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 Woonsocket, or seeking a Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Woonsocket.

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