Marilyn's Story...
Marilyn was found as a stray running in Carlisle. When nobody claimed her she was lucky that ALI had room for her! However, when they did her initial exam they felt her tummy and thought she was pregnant! Via ultrasound they found out that she was pregnant!!

On 8/13/16 she gave birth to 12 beautiful puppies! The puppies have since been weaned from Marilyn as they are almost 8 weeks old as of 10/04/16.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Marilyn, a Des Moines Australian Shepherd/Catahoula Leopard Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Shepherd/Catahoula Leopard Dog for sale in Des Moines, or seeking a Australian Shepherd/Catahoula Leopard Dog dog from a breeder in Des Moines.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Des Moines 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 Des Moines 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/Catahoula Leopard Dog breeders who help with Australian Shepherd/Catahoula Leopard Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Des Moines paves the way for another one to be saved.
