Sherlock's Story...
Sherlock is a 2 year old male who weighs about 30 pounds. He has medium high energy and loves to romp and play. He knows basic commands like sit, wait, lay down, come, off (from jumping), roll over and "bang bang" (play dead). He is very smart and a fast learner. Sherlock has lived with cats. He can be pretty exuberant so he would be better suited for a home with older kids. He is a loving and fun dog.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sherlock, a Elk River 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 Elk River, or seeking a Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Elk River.

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