Greta's Story...
Greta is a 2 year old, female, 35 lb black and white Australian shepherd/Border Collie mix. She’s shy with people at first, but once you give her some treats she is easily won over. She is housetrained and crate trained and very well behaved inside the house.
Greta plays well with other dogs, loves to take walks, chew on nyla bones, and plays fetch to get out her energy. She also likes to be able to run in a fenced-in area with her dog friends, like the dog park. Until Greta is comfortable in new surroundings she should be kept on lead since she can get spooked when she is nervous. She’s very sweet and likes to spend time with her foster family and enjoy their attention (including plenty of belly rubs and thigh scratches).
A classic velcro dog, she’ll keep you company while you’re together in the house. She has been allowed on the furniture in the past and would love to come up and snuggle, but is very obedient if you ask her not to. She knows how to sit, lie down, paw, other paw, go to bed, wait, and is very quick to pick up on any new obedience tricks you teach her. She’s extremely bright and loving. She is a good mix of relaxed and playful, and will make an easy transition into a new and loving home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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