Ralphie "Icelandic Spitz"'s Story...
*Icelandic Spitz (a.k.a. Icelandic Sheepdog)
Hi! I'm Ralphie! My owner can no longer take care of me so I'm now looking for my forever home! Yes, I'm one handsome boy and quite the character! I'm approx. 2 years old and approx. 50 pounds(3/25). I'm extremely sweet, loving, friendly and playful. I'm well socialized and have never met a stranger. You'll see how wonderful I am in my video. I'm great with OLDER kids. I need to have a home where I'm the only pet. I like to have all of the attention! I'm not good with cats. I like to be with my person. I bond the best with men. I like to greet new people with a hug and jump up gently to give it. I'm highly intelligent and mind well inside. I'm very calm inside. I'm house and crate trained. I know many commands like, sit, shake, etc. I need some leash work. I get very excited to go for a walk and I tend to pull. I also like to chase squirrels and other small animals when I'm on a walk. With a little patience and training I can kick those habits. I come when called and I'm not a barker. I do not have food aggression but a little protective over my chew treats. They're so yummy! I like to lie by my foster's feet when she is watching television or working. I also like to lie on the couch while being petted and loved on. I love to play fetch. I have a happy go lucky temperament and my tail is always wagging. I'd love to have a forever home with a big fenced in yard so I can stretch my legs and put my ears in the wind. If you're looking for a fun, loving, smart and beautiful furry companion, then look no further! I'm ready to learn new things and finally live the good life I so richly deserve! I'd love to be an exciting addition to your wonderful life! I'll provide the unconditional love and you can provide the safe and loving home! Belly rubs are a must!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ralphie "Icelandic Spitz", a SUSSEX Spitz (Unknown Type, Medium)/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Spitz (Unknown Type, Medium)/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog for sale in SUSSEX, or seeking a Spitz (Unknown Type, Medium)/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog from a breeder in SUSSEX.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in SUSSEX 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 SUSSEX 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!

In fact, there are even Spitz (Unknown Type, Medium)/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog breeders who help with Spitz (Unknown Type, Medium)/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog rescue.
