Sophie's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Sophie's Story...
Sophie is 11.5 years old and such a sweet girl. She did have calcium stones removed from her bladder a year ago so she is on a special diet and supplements to hopefully prevent those from occurring again. She loves the special food so no problem getting her to eat. She gets along with everyone and is very well behaved. She is housebroken but it would be best that she went to a home where she can go out frequently to potty. She walks well on a leash and rides very well in the car. Sophie is being fostered in Kearneysville, WV.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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