Sheldon's Story...
NOTE: This is a courtesy posting for another rescuer. Please do not contact ARRF, as we do not know this pet personally. Be sure to contact the foster or organization directly from the information listed below.

This young guy seeks a home that will keep him active and busy with a job to do. One year old, 31lb, SHELDON is a neutered white and tan Australian Shepherd/Clumber Spaniel mix. He has a very soft snow-white coat, with just a hint of tan on his ears. He has alert eyes and a wonderfully pet-able soft coat. He loves exploring and sniffing his surroundings while walking with a sensation-type harness. He likes to chase balls and chew squeaky toys. He loves treats, and with his activity level might do well in agility or obedience training. He gets along well with some dogs, but not others, and isn't good with cats.

Loving, cuddly, happy, playful, and energetic are words volunteers have used to describe Sheldon's personality and demeanor. He loves his toys, and romping in the yard.

Sheldon does need some basic training, and lots of exercise. Australian Shepherds are known for their high level of intelligence, so he should be an eager learner. Because of his energy level, he would probably do best with older children. If you are looking for a medium sized dog, perhaps a loyal jogging partner, with great potential, then you ought to check out Sheldon!

Meet this pet at County of San Diego Department of Animal Services, 2481 Palomar Airport Road, Carlsbad 92011. Open Tuesdays - Saturdays, 9:30 am - 5:30 pm. Closed Sundays, Mondays and holidays.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sheldon, a Vista Australian Shepherd/Clumber Spaniel dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Shepherd/Clumber Spaniel for sale in Vista, or seeking a Australian Shepherd/Clumber Spaniel dog from a breeder in Vista.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Vista 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 Vista 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/Clumber Spaniel breeders who help with Australian Shepherd/Clumber Spaniel rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Vista paves the way for another one to be saved.
