River's Story...
River is a 3 year old blue merle male that has had a rough start in life. He's a sweet, soft dog that is learning how to be a normal dog again. He needs a patient owner, a quiet home, and someone that likes to run or walk on a regular basis. It's not that he's a high energy dog, but that he needs to get out and about on a regular basis to help with his recovery. The good thing is that he's super on a leash. His leash can be attached to your belt and you can run or walk hands-free as he doesn't pull and hangs out nicely at your side. He's good in the house, non-destructive, and likes belly rubs. This is a project dog, but in a fairly short period of time, with some more work, will be an amazing companion dog and well worth the effort.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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