HUMPERDINK's Story...
Humperdink “Humper” is a 6-7 year old male Aussie X. He was advocated to us by shelter personnel who said he was a BC/Aussie mix. Oh Lordy, what a surprise when we saw him. The first thing he did was jump up and gave the volunteer a big slobbering kiss, and then fell to the ground for a belly rub. We don’t think he has a drop of BC in him. Our best guess is that he is Aussie mixed with Boxer. Nonetheless, Humper is no less deserving of a good home than any of the BCs in our program. Humper is his real name, and one has to wonder why anyone would give such a sweet natured dog a name like this. Humper was an owner surrender to the shelter because he killed some chickens. Even his owner made a statement on his shelter evaluation form that “Humper is a good dog, he just made a mistake.” Because of this, we are not recommending a home with small animals. Humper is a nice looking dog as he is brindled and white with one blue eye.

Humper has all of the wonderful traits one looks for an in all around family dog. He is lower on the energy side and just wants to hang around with people. His temperament is very even keel and affectionate. He attended his first adoption event last weekend and what a trooper. Nothing bothered him and there sure was a lot of stimulus. Kids were hanging on him and he could care less. Mostly he wanted to give licks and have his belly rubbed. Humper will crate right up, but is a little strong on the leash. He appears to know basic obedience. He is socialized with other dogs and gets along with them. Won’t you give this good ‘ole boy the home he deserves?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

HUMPERDINK, a San Pedro 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 San Pedro, or seeking a Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in San Pedro.

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