Dexter's Story...
My name is Dexter and I am a tiny, 8 pound sheltie whose mom and dad had to move and couldn’t take me. I had a border collie friend so I would do well with another dog. I am neutered, healthy, and a little shy at first. I will need a little time to adjust to new surroundings but my foster mom says I am doing very well for an 8 year old who just lost his family. I am very affectionate with my people so if you think I would fit into your family, contract Sheltie Rescue and ask for Dexter.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dexter, a La Habra Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog for sale in La Habra, or seeking a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog from a breeder in La Habra.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in La Habra 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 La Habra 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 Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog breeders who help with Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in La Habra paves the way for another one to be saved.
