Charlie's Story...
Hi! My name is Charlie and I have had a really rough start in my first five years of life. My previous family thought that training me with a heavy hand was the way to train me, but it just scared me terribly. I am now about six years old and the last seven months in my foster home have been much better, but I would prefer a home with fewer pets so that I can have my person's full attention. I would also enjoy a larger yard in a rural area because my foster mom lives near a grade school and all the kids walking by makes me nervous. I like quiet and tranquil environments with no children and visitors that understand me and my need for calm assertiveness. My foster mom tells me I am special! I need to have a grain free diet so that my tummy doesn't get upset. I really, really like my food but my foster mom says I will get too chubby if I eat all that I want to eat so she has to limit my feeding. I love to kiss my person and snuggle on the couch. My foster mom thinks I look like a chocolate and caramal latte because of my pretty colors. She is silly, but she loves me and wants my forever family to be the perfect fit for me. Are you that perfect family?

Thank you Catherine Onorato for sponsoring Charlie.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Charlie, a Salem Australian Shepherd/Pomeranian dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Shepherd/Pomeranian for sale in Salem, or seeking a Australian Shepherd/Pomeranian 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/Pomeranian breeders who help with Australian Shepherd/Pomeranian rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Salem paves the way for another one to be saved.
