Riley's Story...
Hello Riley! Riley is a 5 yr old neutered male Australian Shepherd. Riley is a super smart boy. He is easily trained, LOVES to play and catch and frisbee and to run and play in his yard. Riley went through training at the canine coach where he learned to walk on a leash, sit, stay and wait. Riley does well at the groomers, loves to be pampered and his favorite is to have belly rubbed. Riley is looking for an adult family or can live with kids 12+. He wants a fenced yard in which to run and safely play. Riley is most comfortable being an only dog. We don't know how Riley is with cats.

Riley's adoption fee is $300 plus MN sales tax.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Riley, a Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis, or seeking a Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Minneapolis.

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