Sheldon's Story...
Birthdate: 10/3/12

Gender: Male

Breed: American Eskimo/Rat Terrier/Blue Heeler mix

The Big Bang Theory litter’s mom, Lady, had the perfect name because she made her own little Lady and the Tramp movie, but instead of slurping pasta while Italian music played in the background, there were lots and lots of puppies everywhere.

Lady’s owner had several female dogs, all unspayed, which wasn’t much of a problem until she happened to find a stray male one day and brought him home. Over the next few months, he proceeded to fill the house with litter after litter of puppies until his new owner finally became too overwhelmed and cried out for help.

Thankfully, that call reached New Lease on Life, and we quickly rescued four litters of puppies, including Lady and the Big Bangs and got the mommy dogs spayed. Now these little ones, who were only two weeks old when they first arrived, are almost ready to move on to amazing new homes of their own.

Thanks to their foster mom, they’ve been very well socialized with kids, dogs and cats. They love to play, and they adore attention. After all, they grew up with kids of all sizes carrying them around almost nonstop. It’s a wonder they ever learned to walk!

The pups’ mom is a 20-pound American Eskimo/Rat Terrier mix. We believe their father was a Blue Heeler (Australian Cattle Dog). We’re expecting the pups to be 20 to 30 pounds as adults, so potential adopters should plan on a small-sized dog once they’re all grown up.

The Big Bang pups are currently in foster care, but they can’t wait to meet you. Please call 330-397-8270 to schedule an appt to meet them at the shelter. They have not yet been spayed/neutered, but this will be done BEFORE they go home with you. In order to reserve your favorite pup, call for an appt. Once you meet them, you can fill out an application. If approved, you must leave a 50% deposit ($100) to reserve your pup. They can then go home with you the day after their spay/neuter at 8 weeks old.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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