Murphy's Info...

Murphy's Story...
Murphy is a 4 year old male who weighs 15 pounds. He is very food motivated and rides well in the car. He gets along well with other dogs and has lived with cats. At this time we feel that Murphy is not well suited for a household with children. Murphy has a great work ethic and is very alert which would make him a good candidate for dog sports. He needs a strong companion human who will spend time with him daily.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Murphy, a Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis, or seeking a Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Minneapolis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis paves the way for another one to be saved.
