Duke's Story...
This is Duke, a very handsome and sweet 6-year-old Australian Shepherd mix. He comes from a family of working dogs. Aussies are natural herders so probably wouldn’t be the best for small children as they like to nip at the heels to herd. He is a little bashful but warms up pretty quickly.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Duke, a Salem 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 Salem, or seeking a Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Salem.

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