Sparta was turned in to the shelter by her owner. She is less than 1-1/2 years old and is a very good family dog. Sparta is a pretty, brindle Lab/hound mix with a curious set to her ears, but a happy, lovable disposition. According to her owner, she 'loves to play outside, especially in water - acts just like a kid and wants to be part of the family'. Sparta often found ways to get through the neighbor's fence, though, and would chase his cattle. In order to prevent her from becoming the object of the neighbor's wrath, Sparta's family determined it to be best if she were rehomed and removed from the temptation to chase the cows. Sparta is very sweet and personable and has been raised around small children and has been around cats and other dogs with no problems. This sweetheart is as large as she will get, but still young enough to enjoy her youth with a new family, hopefully one with children.

About Athens-Limestone Animal Shelter

Our Adoption Process...

The fee for adopting a dog is $110.00, no matter the age or gender of the pet. This fee covers the cost of the animal to be spayed/neutered & vaccines: DA2PP, Bordatella, and Rabies. The adoption fee also covers a fecal exam for worms and a heart worm test!

The fee for cats is $110.00 covers spay/neuter, and age appropriate vaccines.

It is very important that you understand that you CANNOT take pets from the shelter and breed them. Most of the animals came in as strays, therefore, we do not have any background or genetic information on them. Breeding these pets would not be in their best interest nor yours. Also, a Law was just passed in Alabama which requires that EVERY animal, adopted from a shelter, MUST be spayed or neutered!!
