Roscoe's Story...
PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE AD PRIOR TO CONTACTING US. THANK YOU

ADOPTION FEE $300

This adorable 12 month old puppy is a Duck Tolling Retriever - Aussie mix. He came to us via owner surrender when the owner was no longer able to provide the amount of time needed for this adorable, highly intelligent so bores easily, puppy. He is very social with dogs, prefers older dog savvy, respectful children to play with, and a home with no cats. He is the perfect TV buddy, walking buddy, or just bum around and do whatever you would like to do all day, buddy. Roscoe would really love a home for the holidays where he can be part of the family that has the love and devotion he so very much deserves.

If a dog is listed, the dog is available. We respond to all emails within two hours between 8am and 8pm CST. If between 8pm and 8am we will respond the following morning. We are by appointment only and only after verification. We are closed Mon-Wed for adoptions. We do not hold any dog if an approved homes comes for them and they are the perfect fit after meeting them.

Please tell us about yourself, family, lifestyle, other pets, children, and guardian breed or bully breed experience when contacting us. We do not ship our dogs, you must come to our location in Sylacauga AL 35151 to meet them and for us to meet you. At that time we will go over all training of your new dog so, please plan on being here a minimum of one hour.

Our screening process must be completed prior to meeting any dog. If you do not pass initial screening there is no reason to meet our dogs as it is a waste of both of our time:

1) We require a letter of reference from your veterinarian or their information for us to contact them for a reference. If providing the reference from them we are looking for: Current pets are altered, on HW prevention, flea prevention, received Rabies vaccination, and all medical they may have needed as advised by your vet. It must be on company letterhead as we will contact them to confirm.

2) A video tour of your yard and home to make sure suitable for the dog you are inquiring about. Please email to us at info@soldiersforstrays.org

3) A copy of your DL, Passport, Visa

Our screening process is not negotiable, it is set in place to protect our dogs, you the general public, and your current pets and children. If not willing to provide all of the information to ensure the safety of the dog you are inquiring about then please do not waste our time contacting us. If it states the dog cannot be placed with other dogs, then no other dogs, your dog is not the exception just because your dog is friendly and loves everything. While we do not place aggressive dogs back in the general public, we give them sanctuary, not all dogs can peacefully live in a home with another dog. All dogs over six-months-old have been with us for a minimum of 30 days prior to being considered for adoption. All puppies have been with us a minimum of 14 days to insure free of contagious disease.

Our adoption fee's are nonnegotiable. The adoption fee does not come close to covering the care of the dog while with us however, the fee goes towards helping the next dog in need. If you cannot afford or are unwilling to pay the fee listed for a fully vetted, fully trained dog then you are not the home we are looking for, for one of our dogs.

We do not foster out our dogs, thank you but please do not ask to foster. We do not feel it is in the best interest in our dogs to be moved around from one home to the next. When they leave us they are going to their forever home.

All of our dogs come crate trained, leash trained, basic obedience trained, and are house broken. We back our dogs for life and will provide free training for them at our location if a behavior issue occurs, even 10 years from date of adoption. They are UTD on vaccinations, spayed or neutered, double microchipped. They are HW- and on prevention for HW's as well as flea & tick medication. In the event they are HW+ (the ad will state if so) we provide all medication to treat plus cover all medical related to until such time they receive two negative test results. HW treatment is noninvasive and simply giving oral medication cures the disease, it is nothing like it use to be.

Appearances can be deceiving. When in doubt about a breed or breeds of a dog, we do a DNA test. It will come with the dogs medical records at the time of adoption.

All of our dogs are on a raw diet, we do not use commercial dog food and we cannot recommend it. It is all bad for dogs, all of it, no matter what it cost it is killing dogs. Just Google the rendering process from which dog food is made. We strongly encourage our former dogs to remain on raw. It is very easy, cheaper than a high end grain free, and will keep your dog healthy and he/she will live years longer.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Roscoe, a Sylacauga Australian Shepherd/Retriever (Unknown Type) puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Shepherd/Retriever (Unknown Type) for sale in Sylacauga, or seeking a Australian Shepherd/Retriever (Unknown Type) puppy from a breeder in Sylacauga.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Sylacauga 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 Sylacauga 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/Retriever (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Australian Shepherd/Retriever (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Sylacauga paves the way for another one to be saved.
