Ginger's Story...
Ginger is a 9 month old heeler mix who was dumped at the shelter by her "family" to make room for a new (two-legged) baby. Ginger spent over a week backed into the corner of her kennel terrified--growling and barking at anyone who came near her. Once out of the shelter and safe in a foster home, Ginger has come out of her shell and wants nothing more than to be by your side getting as much attention as she can. A true redhead, this petite little girl (only 28 lb) has spunk! She clearly had little to no socialization during her critical developmental period. So new things and new people are a bit scary for her. But, with proper introductions (and lots of high value treats), she is learning that new people, places and things are "good" and "fun". Ginger has learned to play well with other dogs (thanks to all her foster brothers and sisters) and does like to chase the resident cat (but it is all in the spirit of fun and play). She is crate-trained, housebroken, spayed and UTD on her vaccinations. Ginger is learning to walk on leash without pulling (but, honestly she would rather run!).

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ginger, a Salt Lake City Australian Cattle Dog/Cattle Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Cattle Dog/Cattle Dog for sale in Salt Lake City, or seeking a Australian Cattle Dog/Cattle Dog dog from a breeder in Salt Lake City.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Salt Lake City 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 Salt Lake City 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 Cattle Dog/Cattle Dog breeders who help with Australian Cattle Dog/Cattle Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Salt Lake City paves the way for another one to be saved.
