Neville McPuffinstuff knows, without a doubt, that he will do anything - ANYTHING - for a Fruit Loop (yes, the cereal). Neville's other passions include giving kisses, playing with the other dogs, and strutting around with his tail held high because he knows without a doubt he is awesome, most of the time, except when he has a little self-doubt and then gets the sneezes (true story, Neville sneezes when he's nervous). 

Neville was a family pet that was surrendered to a shelter in North Carolina. He is about 10 months old, EXTREMELY adorable, and very friendly. I don't know if he's ever met a non-friend. He is polite with other dogs and says, as only he can when rebuffed, "Oh dear, I am SO sorry, please excuse me." And then he trots away to find another friend to play with. 

So far, Neville has done well in the crate and after a couple of corrections, has been minding his manners in the house. He is an active guy and will need a family ready to play with him and give him some basic obedience training. He is a quick learner, and will sometimes "talk" to you when you're not paying attention. He whines to go outside and lets you know he has to "go", and enjoys a good game of tug. He responds well to correction and will give you an "oops! Sorry!" look when he is verbally corrected.

Neville's ideal family will be one that enjoys a high-energy dog and that will also keep him well socialized with lots of doggy friends or maybe a doggy brother or sister to play with. He will not be placed in a home with young children as his exuberence may be too much for small kids. Neville will soon be neutered before his adoption and will be ready to join a new home.

Neville is up to date on vaccinations, HW negative, and will be neutered prior to adoption. Submit your application for Sir Neville McPuffinstuff today!

About Save Our Herders Outreach

About Our Rescue Group...

Save Our Herders Outreach (SOHO) is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to herding breed and herding mixed dogs in need. We concentrate our rescue efforts in Virginia, North Carolina, and West Virginia. Most of our volunteers and fosters live in those states and share their homes with their own Border collies, Australian Shepherds, Australian Cattle Dogs, Working Kelpies, Corgis and/or Shetland Sheepdogs.

Our dogs come from several sources. Many come from high kill shelters where they were either found as strays or abandoned by their owners. Some were turned over to us by owners who could no longer care for them. Regardless of where they came from, our goal for every dog is the same - a forever home where they will be loved and considered a part of the family.

Come Meet Our Pets...

To meet our pets, we do require an application and an appointment as all of our pets are in foster homes.

Our Adoption Process...

The fee to adopt a dog is $250. We do require a vet reference, three personal references, and a home visit prior to adoption, and we require signature on a contract to adopt the dog. Your current pets must be up to date on vaccinations (though we accept titering records as well), and heartworm preventative.
