Billy's Story...
Meet Billy! Billy is a fun loving 2.5 year old Australian shepherd/cattle dog mix. Billy is a beautiful, highly intelligent 45 pound boy. He is energetic and playful. He loves his squeaky toys and is always up for a game of fetch. Billy has great energy and loves to go for runs. He behaves well in the house, is potty trained and knows all of his basic commands. Billy is crate trained and using his crate helps him deal with some separation anxiety issues he has. Billy learns fast and is eager to please. He walks well on a leash but is mistrustful of strangers and does not react well to people approaching him while he is leashed. Billy has a lot of great qualities and has a ton of potential. He will make an excellent companion for the right family. Billy would do best in a home with older children and with no cats. Billy gets along well with most dogs, but will not respond well to an alpha dog. . Billy, being highly intelligent and a shepherd/cattle dog mix, needs an alpha human to live with. He would also do well with having a job. Ideally, I would love to see him adopted to an active family, as he would make a great running companion. Billy is currently receiving training and the family that adopts him will need to sign him up for training classes (or continue the classes he is in) before the adoption is complete. Billy is a special dog and you will fall in love with him, but placing him with the right family is very important. If you believe that you are the right family, please fill out a statement of interest online at www.alternativehumanesociety.com (under the ADOPT menu).

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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