Shadow's Story...
Please read entire description if you are interested in Shadow - it's important.

(Our adoption app is here: http://pawsitivetailsrescue.org/our-adoptable-pets/pawsitive-tails-rescue-dog-adoption-application-form/)

Shadow is a 25 lb female red heeler/kelpie mix (born 5/15/15) that is absolutely the best dog with small children I've ever seen. She bonds quickly with kids and loves to be with them. She's great with HER adults and is affectionate and playful.

She is a heeler and, typical of her breed, she is protective of her 'territory' and will nip the ankles of people she doesn't know or trust. She is not a fan of cats and will chase them, and is picky about what dogs she likes (again, a typical heeler).

She gets along well with several small dogs we have here - absolutely NO problems, but larger (25+ lbs), intact females she does have a problem with.

She needs responsible owners and a fenced yard for this girl is a must. She will make someone the sweetest, most loyal companion ever if given the chance.

Her adoption fee is 150 and includes age-appropriate shots, worming, microchip and spay. An approved application is required (which can be found here: http://pawsitivetailsrescue.org/our-adoptable-pets/pawsitive-tails-rescue-dog-adoption-application-form/), as is an adoption contract.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shadow, a Torrington Australian Kelpie/Australian Cattle Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Kelpie/Australian Cattle Dog for sale in Torrington, or seeking a Australian Kelpie/Australian Cattle Dog dog from a breeder in Torrington.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Torrington 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 Torrington 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 Kelpie/Australian Cattle Dog breeders who help with Australian Kelpie/Australian Cattle Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Torrington paves the way for another one to be saved.
