Andy's Info...

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

Andy's Story...
Andy is a darling little sheltie mix who was rescued from a crowded rural shelter just before he was to be euthanized due to space. He is 10-12 months old and weighs just 20 pounds. Andy is a very very sweet, friendly little boy who just loves everyone he meets. He gets along with respectful kids, other well behaved dogs and hasn't been checked out with cats. Andy does tend to run off so a fenced yard is required. Also, he will not be happy being home alone all day as he is still young and playful. Andy is house trained when taken outside on a schedule. He can be crated for up to 5 hours, and he walks pretty well on a leash though he would benefit from obedience training like most young dogs. Andy is with a 501c3 non profit rescue. His $275 adoption fee almost covers his pull fee (the amount to get him sprung from the pound), his boarding bill, and his full vetting including neuter, heartworm test and pill, shots, worming, flea/tick prevention, grooming and HomeAgain microchip.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Andy, a Osseo 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 Osseo, or seeking a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog from a breeder in Osseo.

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