Sherman's Story...
Say hey to Sherman! Sherman is a year old, fourteen pound Sheltie/Dachshund mix who was rescued from Grant County, after being found as a stray. Although Sherman takes a minute or two to warm up to new people, especially men, he's the biggest lover and cuddle bug his foster has ever met. If you're not careful, his tongue will quickly find it's way into your mouth, up your nose, and in your ears. He's sneaky like that!!!

Sherman does well with other dogs, although initially, he'll growl while wagging his tail. After a few minutes, he's good to go and wanting to run and play. He has shown no interest in the cats at his foster home. Sherman has not yet been tested with kids but given his demeanor would do fine with those that are older and respectful of his small stature.

This precious pooch also has demodex mange (non-contagious) and is currently on medication for it. He's also on medication for worms, and all of his medication will go with his adopter. Additionally, so long as the adopter continues going to one of HART's vets, any continued treatment, and check ups for the demodex will be covered, until he is clear. Hurry and get your applications in as this guy won't last long!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sherman, a Cincinnati Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Dachshund dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Dachshund for sale in Cincinnati, or seeking a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Dachshund dog from a breeder in Cincinnati.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cincinnati 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 Cincinnati 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 Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Dachshund breeders who help with Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Dachshund rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cincinnati paves the way for another one to be saved.
