Sampson's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with kids.

Sampson's Story...
Sampson is a handsome young red heeler of the red speckled coloring. He is about 8 months old. He has a long tale, as some heelers have, and is a bit big for a heeler (around 50 lbs). Sampson is a sweet friendly boy but is a bit intimidated by some other dogs, especially large males, and needs some time to get used to them. This excellent boy would be a great pet and working dog.

Scroll to bottom for contact information or call ARF at (877) ARF-JCNC. For the $70 adoption fee, this animal has received rabies shot and heartworm test if old enough. It has also received puppy shot, worming, and spay/ neuter--and sometimes a considerable investment of services and treatments.

Because of this animal's uncertain history, we assume he or she is not housebroken unless we have stated otherwise. However, most dogs are trainable and eager to please. ARF will happily advise prospective owners about crate training and the latest housebreaking tools.

We set up at our adoption location on 50 Railroad Ave., Sylva, NC every Saturday from 1-3 PM (sometimes earlier or later if the weather is nice). You can also view animals by making an appointment with the foster parent. Get approximate directions from your location.

If you can't adopt right now, consider donating the adoption fee of this pet. ARF spends an average of $125 housing and caring for pets; some cost us much more.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sampson, a Sylva Australian Cattle Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Cattle Dog for sale in Sylva, or seeking a Australian Cattle Dog 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 Cattle Dog breeders who help with Australian Cattle Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Sylva paves the way for another one to be saved.
