Hershey's Story...
Birthdate: 12/3/10

Gender: Female

Breed: Australian Shepherd/German Shepherd mix

Siblings: Oreo, Hershey, Godiva

It’s amazing what a little change of environment can do. When we first saw these pups, they were at the Carroll County Pound, turned in by their owners without their mother. They had no idea how they had gone from their home to that place, surrounded by loud barking dogs and standing on a hard cold concrete floor. The three of them piled onto the single bed in the kennel and peered out through the fence.

Skip forward a couple of hours after a long car ride away from the pound and to the safety of New Lease on Life where they’re surrounded by people happy to pet them, lots of chew toys and mountains of soft, warm bedding to snuggle into. They’ve turned into completely different pups. Gone are the scared confused faces, replaced by happily wagging tails and little pink tongues darting out to lick your hand.

Hershey is simply stunning, and her photos don’t nearly do her justice. You have to come see her at the shelter to truly appreciate her markings which are a beautiful blend of Australian Shepherd and German Shepherd in muted, red hues.

Hershey is believed to be an Australian Shepherd/German Shepherd mix. We expect her to reach around 40 – 50 pounds as an adult.

Hershey has not yet been spayed, but this will be done BEFORE you take her home. If you’re interested in adopting, please visit the shelter any time during adoption hours, Thursday through Sunday 5–8pm, to meet her. You can also call 330–397–8270 if you would like to schedule a private appointment outside of regular adoption hours. If the two of you hit it off, (and how could you not?) you can fill out an adoption application. If approved, you will then leave a 50% deposit ($100) to reserve him for your family. She can go home as early as the day after her spay, which we can usually get scheduled within a couple of days.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hershey, a Struthers Australian Shepherd/German Shepherd Dog puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Shepherd/German Shepherd Dog for sale in Struthers, or seeking a Australian Shepherd/German Shepherd Dog puppy from a breeder in Struthers.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Struthers 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 Struthers 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/German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with Australian Shepherd/German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Struthers paves the way for another one to be saved.
