Frances's Info...

I am already spayed, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and not good with kids.

Frances's Story...
Frances (formerly Spring) is about 3 years old and was surrendered to the shelter because she escaped and her owner couldn't catch her. She's playful, friendly, and active, and she's good on a leash. She seems nervous in confinement (crates, cars) so probably hasn't spent a lot of time inside, but she's eager to please. She seems fine with women and most men, as well as calmer teenagers from 10 up. But she barks frantically at toddlers and should not be placed in a home with small children.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Frances, a Sylva 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 Sylva, or seeking a Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Sylva.

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