Spring is coming. No, it really is, at least sometime in the near future! Spring is a good time to think about adding a new member to your family. If you have been thinking about adopting a new dog, Animals Best Friends has many wonderful dogs looking for good homes.

Sampson is a beautiful Australian shepherd mix who will be 2 years old in April. He is an intelligent boy with a loving disposition and easy manner. Sampson knows “sit” and is eager to learn new things. He is kennel trained and gets along well with other dogs. Sampson also loves to play in the kiddie pool on hot summer days. This sweet boy would make a great family pet. ABF caregivers recommend that Sampson be placed in a home without cats.

Abby is a precious little girl who had a rough start in life. This little Australian shepherd mix and her Mom and siblings were struggling to survive in a local park when rescuers brought them in from the frigid cold. Abby is about 4 months old, sweet, and true to her breed, she is smart. She is a quiet little girl and would make a great addition to a loving family. Abby has also done well with house training. ABF caregivers recommend that Abby be placed in a home with a fenced yard.

If you are looking for a wonderful dog to join your family and think that either Sampson or Abby might be a good fit, please go to our website at www.animalsbestfriends.org and complete an application. Animals Best Friends does vet references, home visits, and two week trials to make sure that the animal and family are a good fit.
