River's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

River's Story...
River is a young, active Sheltie X Pomeranian blend (from our best guess) whom we took in to our rescue after she was being given away "free" on Craigslist by her former Owners. This girl would make a good Rally or Agility potential as she is super smart and active! She would be fine with gentle children from the age of 8+ years, with prior dog experience. River would not be suitable for a condo or similar type living arrangement.

River has been introduced to cats, of which she showed curiosity and a healthy dose of caution! She will benefit by continued training and an active lifestyle - she would make an excellent running / jogging partner!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

River, a Orange Pomeranian/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pomeranian/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog for sale in Orange, or seeking a Pomeranian/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog from a breeder in Orange.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Orange 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 Orange 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 Pomeranian/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog breeders who help with Pomeranian/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Orange paves the way for another one to be saved.
