Can you guess the theme for this litter? All of the pups are named after cereal! And just like cereal, they are sweet and they will make every morning perfect from the very start.

The Cereal litter is rather unique because they all share a name theme.. .. but they’re actually TWO litters.

Their former owners allowed both of their dogs to get pregnant at the same time.. .. both gave birth at the same time .. .. and unfortunately, that meant their pups were dumped at the pound at the same time.

One half of the litter is shorthaired and slightly heavier and larger. These pups we believe to be Lab/Boxer/Doberman mixes. We’re expecting them to be 40 to 50 pounds as adults.

The other half is medium and longhaired and very petite. These pups are nothing but fluff and personality. We believe they are Border Collie/Cocker Spaniel/Pomeranian mixes. We’re expecting them to be 30 pounds or less as adults.

But no matter which half of the litter you’re looking at, all of the pups are personality plus! They love people more than anything else in the world.. .. except maybe treats. When you call their names, they come rushing over for snuggles and cuddles and petting with their little tails wagging as fast as they can go. They love attention.

They’ve also been very well socialized. All of the pups have met other dogs of many shapes and sizes.. .. from tiny ones like they are, all the way up to full grown 60-pound dogs. They think everyone is a potential friend, big or small, and big dogs don’t phase them in the least. They’re also big fans of cats.

The pups have not yet been housebroken, but they’re very young, so they’ll pick it up without a problem. We recommend crate training as the quickest, easiest way to housebreak, and we’d be happy to give you some tips.

Both halves of the litter are living at the shelter and would love to meet you. You can visit any time during adoption hours, Thursday through Sunday 5 to 8pm, or call 330-397-8270 to schedule a private appt at another time or on another day. They have already been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and flea treated, so they’re ready to join your family!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cheerios, a Struthers Cocker Spaniel/Border Collie puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Cocker Spaniel/Border Collie for sale in Struthers, or seeking a Cocker Spaniel/Border Collie 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 Cocker Spaniel/Border Collie breeders who help with Cocker Spaniel/Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Struthers paves the way for another one to be saved.
