Hero's Info...

Hero's Story...
Meet Hero, he's approx 5 ys old and around 50 lbs. Hero is a sweetheart of a dog, very loving and loyal. When picked up, he immediately rolled on his back for a tummy rub. While watching a girl in his foster home swimming laps, he tried to rescue her, seemingly concerned that she might need him to do so. He gently took her wrist and guided her to safety, she called him, “My Hero.”

Hero is house and crate trained, seems good with other dogs and ok with cats! He loves attention and just wants to be petted and loved on. Nice gentle boy who would fit into any household! Good with kids!

Hero’s nose area and eye lids appear sunburned; his condition could be related to benign Lupus Discoid requiring supplements such as Omega 3 and Vitamin E plus topical sunscreen and limited sun exposure. I've placed several dogs with this condition and all are doing wonderfully! He'll just need to be limited to sun exposure. He recently had a complete work up, blood and urine and all checks out good.

Hero is currently fostered in Palm Harbor.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hero, 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.
