Jamie's Story...
My name is Jamie and I am not sure about my back ground. My mom was a lost blue heeler (australian cattle dog) that had been living on a farm when she gave birth to the seven of us. The owner of the farm took care of us until we were big enough to find homes. The winter has been so cold that the owner thought best to send us to Bedford County Animal Shelter for safety. Bedford Humane Society took me and my siblings and put us in a wonderful foster home. I am learning to walk on a leash and some basic commands. My foster home has some adult dogs I have been playing with when my foster mom is not working with me. I now am ready for my own home where I can show my new owner how much I have learned. I am very smart and eager to please. I am up to date medically and ready to meet my new owners. I would love to have some children to run and play with. I will probably be around 40 pounds and that is a perfect size for indoors. I love to run so if you need someone to be your running partner, I am the one for you.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jamie, a Bedford Australian Shepherd/Australian Cattle Dog puppy 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 Bedford, or seeking a Australian Shepherd/Australian Cattle Dog puppy from a breeder in Bedford.

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