Oliver's Story...
Oliver is a male aussie mix who is about 5 years old. He is a little guy, about 16 inches tall and he weighs 25 pounds or so. He was obtained 4 years ago for a 4H project, the kid quickly lost interest so Oliver has been living in an outdoor kennel for the past 3 years. You wouldn't guess it by his good nature though! He is an absolute doll. Oliver is well-behaved indoors, completely housebroken and gets along with everyone he meets. He also has great leash manners. This little guy is looking for a new home where he can be a real part of the family.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Oliver, a Elk River Australian Shepherd/Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Shepherd/Shih Tzu for sale in Elk River, or seeking a Australian Shepherd/Shih Tzu 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/Shih Tzu breeders who help with Australian Shepherd/Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Elk River paves the way for another one to be saved.
