Tootsie's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, and not good with cats.

Tootsie's Story...
Tootsie is a 5 1/2 yr old mini (possible toy) Aussie, she stands about 14" tall. She is a black tri (docked tail) and just as cute as a button. Tootsie weighs about 19.5lbs, she's a little girl. She is a little on the shy side at first but warms up quickly. She follows me all around the house and then settles at my feet.

She was a little growly with my dogs at first and if they got in her face she'd snap but they all knew to keep their distance and she was fine with that! She plays with them now but also can be a little snarky at times. She would prefer a home with no other dogs or a dog that is playful and submissive. I was told by her former owner she does not like cats. Tootsie rides very well in the car and seems to enjoy it, she'll jump right in! She walks fairly well on a leash. I think small children would be a bit overwhelming.

You should see Tootsie rip around the yard! She then runs to the water bowl and starts digging in it, water everywhere...it's a mess but it's so cute! I decided to get out the wading pool, she will go in it and start digging in it and then just lay there like AHHHHH. She loves it!

Tootsie is also a great sleeping buddy. She lays in one place, doesn't move around and is very content to sleep with you (and she doesn't take up much room!). She would make a nice traveling companion, nice and portable.

Tootsie is fostered in Deltona.

Our adoption fee is $250.00 (over 10 yrs $125.00), this helps cover some of the dogs expenses. All dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date with vaccinations, heartworm tested and on preventative. You must be willing to travel to the dog to meet/adopt .

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tootsie, a Orlando 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 Orlando, or seeking a Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Orlando.

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