Chico's Story...

Hiya! My name is Chico. I am a 6-year-old Lab/Australian Shepherd mix. As my breed suggests I just love chasing after cats, so no cats in my home!!! I am neutered and updated on all my vaccinations :).

This just in!! My foster mom adores me :) She is so proud of me because my little chi foster brother stole some food from me and I didn't even flinch :) I have great manners and know my basic commands. I am also potty trained!! I am great with little dogs so if you have a small dog family and are lookin' to make it a little bigger I am your guy!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chico, 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.
