Balto's Story...
Balto has a lot to smile about. It wasn't long ago that he was orphaned in a field, just a babe, alone, filled with parasites, skin lesions and no food. He found himself in a neighborhood of hate, among people, humans that would rather hurt him than help him. Within the crowd there was one family, two true people that felt his pain, saw his plea and worked to coax him to safety. They gave him food, showed him love and soon this young pup felt safe. Balto was vetted, neutered, chipped, he is housebroken , playful, loveable, hopeful and beautiful. But this isn't the end to his fairy tale story. Balto's fosters have continued to deal with the neighbors that have threatened Balto, showing so much hate towards a puppy, why you ask? Because this is what some people do, they don't have happiness in their lives, they don't have love in their hearts.

Balto is safe in his foster home, they watch over him carefully, but it is time that he ventures on to a new chapter in his life and find his forever home to adopt.

Balto is 9 months old, 22 pounds of pure love. His eyes say it all and how can you look and not say "awww". Balto is a cattle dog cross with some corgi, short and squatty, making this handsome and stunning boy quite the catch. He is great with people, kids and other dogs. He is looking for an active family, one to play with, go on walks with, maybe even teach them and trick or two.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Balto, a Houston Australian Cattle Dog puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Cattle Dog for sale in Houston, or seeking a Australian Cattle Dog puppy from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston 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 Houston 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 Cattle Dog breeders who help with Australian Cattle Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
