Nellie's Story...
My name is Nellie. I am about 7 years old and my friends think that I may be a Catahoula Leopard Dog-Australian Shepherd mix. I was really sad because my family moved and took me to a shelter—not sure why they didn’t take me with them. Then I was even sadder because, while everyone at the shelter told me what a good girl I was, and patted and played with me, they kept walking adopting smaller or younger dogs. I really don’t know why, nor does my foster mom, who says I’m the perfect dog. I was SO happy to move in with her. She tells everyone I’m a perfect dog, and, at about 45 pounds, the perfect size. She also says I am just the sweetest, most easy-going girl you will ever meet. I am perfect on leash and I just refuse to use the bathroom in the house—that would not be ladylike. I was so happy the day I moved into a foster home. I love everyone, and will happily give all of my love to you if you want me to join your family. I am current on all vaccines, am spayed, and am HW/Lyme negative. If you would like for me to join your family, write pals@psknet.com to request an application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nellie, a Radford Catahoula Leopard Dog/Australian Shepherd dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Catahoula Leopard Dog/Australian Shepherd for sale in Radford, or seeking a Catahoula Leopard Dog/Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Radford.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Radford 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 Radford 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 Catahoula Leopard Dog/Australian Shepherd breeders who help with Catahoula Leopard Dog/Australian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Radford paves the way for another one to be saved.
