Riley's Story...
Poor Riley had little chance of making it out of the shelter as he was very timid and “shut down” in his cell. He didn’t cry and beg for attention — he just sat scared and confused in the back of his kennel, tail tucked snuggly between his legs. Well, that didn’t scare us away! We were told by shelter volunteers Riley was a very sweet and lovable pup who just needed to be shown some TLC.

The minute we met Riley he crouched down on the floor, wagged his tail so hard that his whole bottom shook, and he scooted over to our feet and gave us kisses. We took him out of the shelter immediately!

Riley just takes a few minute to come out of his shell and then he is all love and affection. Riley is very happy and super quick to learn. While he has no visible training, after 20 minutes he was walking right along with us on leash and looking up to us for queues.

Riley gets along well with other dogs and we know he will make a fabulous family pet!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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