SHELBY's Story...
Meet Shelby! Shelby is a special girl that deserves only the best! She has had a rough first few years of her life. Shelby is a Collie mix who weighs about 40 lbs (could stand to gain a couple pounds). She is about 2 yrs old. Shelby somehow found herself pregnant and in a rural shelter, but luckily Critter Cavalry stepped forward to help her and her unborn babies. She got to leave the shelter on a Friday morning and the very next day gave birth to 6 beautiful puppies. She was a wonderful mom and raised her babies well, they are all now adopted and she is looking for her forever home. We think Shelby must have spent a lot of time outside alone without much human interaction. It seems she just isn't sure how to be a pet. She is very, very shy at first, but once she warms up and comes to you, she loves to be rubbed and petted. She needs a family willing to be patient with her and show her that people can be trusted. She gets a bit anxious when left home alone, even if in the crate (she does not potty in the crate, but will chew on anything you leave in there with her like a blanket or towel, but also is great about chewing on and playing with a toy if you make sure to put that in). She walks great on a leash and is fantastic with other dogs. Are you someone that could show her love and consistency so that she can flourish and become a wonderful pet? She has it inside her, she just needs some to help her bring it out. Regretfully we are no longer able to adopt to RI and MA applicants. ADOPTION FEE REQUIRED. CONTACT US AT ccrnewengland@gmail.com

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hagerstown 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 Hagerstown 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 Collie breeders who help with Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hagerstown paves the way for another one to be saved.
