Cricket's Info...

Cricket's Story...
Hello I'm "Cricket" I am a Aussie mix female, I am timid and exhibits some owner seeking behavior while here at the shelter. She does exhibit door-bolting in an attempt to escape my kennel and the shelter. This behavior will need to be managed in my new home to prevent escape until I feel comfortable. I am hand-shy and fearful of toys. I would prefer a home with respectful children that understand my timid nature and boundaries. Crate training is essential to establishing good manners. I would blossom in a home with another confident dog.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cricket, a Twin Falls 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 Twin Falls, or seeking a Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Twin Falls.

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