Charlie's Story...
Charlie is a 7 year old male (40 pounds) who comes from a very loving family. He is great with kids and also lived with a golden retriever and a cat. He has lots of energy and loves to run and play but does not play fetch unless it is on his terms. He also likes to swim but does not retrieve anything in the water. He is very sweet but can be overbearing at the greeting and gets super excited. After he is acquainted he settles down and just wants to be close. Charlie is used to sleeping indoors and loves his kennel. He reacts the best to verbal reprimands when he has misbehaved and a timeout in his kennel. He is fine with cats but sometimes chases them a little here and there.
Charlie will make a wonderful addition to any family.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Charlie, 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.
