Merlin's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, and up to date with shots.

Merlin's Story...
He is 12 to 18 months of age and looks to be purebred Aussie. Merlin apparently suffered terribly injuries in his puppy days. X-rays show his pelvis and hips were crushed (maybe from being run-over by something). The injuries were not treated. His hips and pelvis are fused so he has very limited mobility of his back legs. This amazing, precious dog has somehow recovered from his horrendous injuries (enduring terrible pain) and has learned to walk (and run) in spite of his disabilities. He obviously is not going to let a little thing like crushed hips and pelvis slow him down. When I met him, I walked in his kennel as a perfect stranger. He greeted me by wiggling his little back end and showering me with doggie kisses. PLEASE help Merlin find a special home! This boy deserves ALOT better than he's received so far. He is neutered, vaccinated and ready for a forever loving home!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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