Cupcake's Story...
Meet Cupcake ! This girl was rescued by ADA after living in a home with 25 other dogs. She came to us with hardly any hair and never socialized. She has been in a foster home for sometime learning how to live with people and not just dogs. She still has to work on housetraining and humans loving on her. BUT with special treats she will stand on her head for you. She will even take her paw and try to take food out of your hand. Cupcake is a border collie/? mix and not very large (25 lbs). Her tail is twisted in a curly Q and still growing hair.
If your looking for a winter project with a lot of reward this girl is for you. Cupcake is looking for a person that will understand her shy ways, learning to go outside to the bathroom instead of on newspapers and that people can be good. It would help if another dog is in the house because she bonds to dogs first.
$175.00 adoption donation ($200 for puppies under 6 months old) helps us take care of all the dogs we rescue. All dogs are spayed/neutered, tested for heartworm and tick borne diseases (if old enough) , microchipped and vaccinated for rabies (if old enough), distemper/parvo and bordetella. They are also treated for internal and external parasites if needed. Many dogs also receive extensive medical care such as surgeries and dentals.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cupcake, a Staunton Border Collie/Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie/Shih Tzu for sale in Staunton, or seeking a Border Collie/Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Staunton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Staunton 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 Staunton 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 Border Collie/Shih Tzu breeders who help with Border Collie/Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Staunton paves the way for another one to be saved.
