Bella's Story...
Bella is a small black-tri female who is 5 years old. She is a slightly timid girl, especially with men, but once she gets to know you she is a huge love bug. She is very interested in and attached to her people and wants to be near you all of the time. She is okay with other dogs, but doesn’t really like them in her space. She might do best in a home with no other dogs or a home with a very calm and non-dominant dog. She does just fine with cats, she mostly ignores them. Bella loves older kids a lot and adores adults, but may not do well with toddlers or very small children. Bella is active and energetic and loves to play. She loves to play with a rope or ball and can jump very high in the air to catch them if you throw them. She could be a really good Frisbee or flyball dog with the right training. She does know her basic commands such as sit and lie down and she will sit and wait for her food when it’s time to eat. She is house broken and crate trained. She is a typical Aussie and loves to be touched and to roll over on her back for a belly rub. She is a very sweet girl with a very loving nature.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bella, a Elk River 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 Elk River, or seeking a Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Elk River.

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