Pope's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Pope's Story...
Pope is a sweet, happy and affectionate puppy who loves to pay outside and is always ready for a tummy rub! He’s great with children and other dogs but may be a little shy at first. He doesn’t have much experience with cats but doesn’t get overly excited when he sees them, however he is curious.

He is crate trained and likes to eat his meals there. You’ll get no complaints when putting him in and he sleeps through the night there. Potty training is going well. He does best when reminded to go out periodically and watched to make sure he goes before being distracted by birds and butterflies! He’s highly motived in all training with treats.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pope, a Smithfield Australian Shepherd/Border Collie puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Shepherd/Border Collie for sale in Smithfield, or seeking a Australian Shepherd/Border Collie puppy from a breeder in Smithfield.

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