Peter's Story...
Hi, my name is Peter (a/k/a Petey). I'm a male Australian Shepard mix born approximately 1/06. I am neutered, up to date on shots and heartworm negative. I was originally found on the side of the road with a broke leg and a bad case of mange. My leg healed and my mange is gone. I also had surgery on both of my back knees for luxating patellas previously. This doesn’t slow me down, just kind of limits my jumping. I’m somewhat housebroken, love all people and am very smart. If you have never owned an Aussie before please do some research on the breed. Aussies are working dogs and are very smart, but also get bored very easily and they need a fenced in yard to run in. I will need to be an only pet since I have proven to be a bit of an alpha with other dogs and cats. I just want all the attention and think I deserve such. So, if you are looking for a handsome Aussie and are pet free right now, come on down to CAAWS and fill out an application to adopt me.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Peter, a Baton Rouge 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 Baton Rouge, or seeking a Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Baton Rouge.

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