Louis's Story...
Meet Louis!
Louis is just under 2 years old. This 30 lb Sheltie Aussie/bc mix is looking for a special home. Louis loves his people! He is house trained and crate trained but also not destructive when left loose in the house. Louis LOVES his ball and tug toys and squeaky toys and just about any new toy you give him. Playing ball is a great way for Louis to get exercise. It took a little bit of time, but Louis is doing great with canine foster siblings and can now play with them in the yard. Louis loves to spend the end of the day playing with his toys and hanging out with his people.
Louis spent his early days in a hoarding home with 150 other dogs. During that time, he learned he had to fight for everything he got. Louis needs a patient person to help him acclimate to his new surroundings Louis requires a fenced yard. would do great in a home where his people can throw his ball or run with him. Though Louis has successfully lived with children, we feel he would do best in an adult home. Louis's new family will need to continue to build his confidence in new situations, while providing a safe stable home for him. Lou is a snuggley, playful, active happy boy once he settles in so any effort on his behalf is well worth it.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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