Baxter's Story...
Hey all! I'm Baxter! Nice to meet you!

I'm about 2 years old and they tell me that I'm one handsome dude!! I am an Australian Shepherd blend and I am full grown at 37 lbs, so I'm the perfect size. My perfect family would have other dogs, I LOVE to run and play with other dogs, fur brothers and sisters are awesome!! I'm afraid I might try to "herd" smaller, highly active children and sometimes get I spooked by them if they try to jump on me, so only older children for me please, if there are children in the home. I also seem to be partial to women and female children. Boys have been cruel to me in the past, so I'm trying really hard to trust them again.

I just want to let my new family know I'm here, I'm waiting for you. All you need to do is apply online www.RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org/adopt-foster

*Baxter's adoption fee is $200.00 and he is UTD on vaccinations, heart worm negative, on preventatives, neutered and micro-chipped.

**An application and home visit are required. Transport can potentially be arranged to approved homes. Please ask us for more information if you are not in Tennessee**

Our adoption fees not only help the animal being adopted, but they also help to cover heart-worm treatments and other treatable ailments that many animals, that would otherwise be euthanized, need to be made available for adoption.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Baxter, a Franklin 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 Franklin, or seeking a Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Franklin.

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