Animals are adopted on a first come, first serve basis. You may want to call and ask if I am still available prior to visiting the shelter. When you adopt me, I will stay at the shelter and be taken to the veterinarian of your choice where I will be spayed or neutered before going to my new home. If I am already spayed or neutered, I can go home with you upon adoption. My adoption cost is very affordable and includes my adoption fee, spay/neuter, vaccinations, deworming, license (if you live within Huntsville city limits), a collar and personalized ID tag. Please know that a high percentage of animals in the shelter are brought in as strays. It is impossible to know anything about a stray animal and many times we can only make our best educated guess on breeds, age, etc. Every animal you see posted here has passed a general temperament test as performed by shelter staff and it is considered to be non-aggressive. ADOPTION FEES Dogs: $80 - 170 - includes spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, rabies voucher, deworming, *heart worm and flea/tick prevention; purebred dogs and puppies tend to cost more and dogs that have been in the shelter longer will probably cost less.

Rescue Me ID: 14-04-14-00548Wheezy (female)

Shetland Sheepdog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Wise and warm Wheezy is looking for her fur-ever home after being lovingly fostered for 13 months, gaining confidence, getting over some of her fears, and growing her luscious fur back after battling demodex at the time she arrived at Second Chance. Wheezy girl is a spectacularly beautiful all black pup that appears to be a Collie/ Sheltie/ German Shepherd mix to our eyes. Wheezy is between 4 and 5 years old, came to the shelter in February 2013. She has done pretty well with her foster mom's 2 dogs, one small and one big, and she adjusted just fine to the cat in her foster family as well. The only time she gets snappy is if she thinks ... (Read More)someone is stealing her snuggle time with 'her person.' Wheezy will need to go an adult only home, as children's higher energy and activities tend to panic sweet Wheezy. This ebony beauty still gets startled with loud noises when caught off guard, but she is potty trained, and knows a few basic commands such as sit and down. Wheezy is good on a leash, and enjoys and behaves on longer car rides. Wheezy needs a loving and accepting home so we will be looking for the perfect adoptive family to transition this sweetheart from her fantastic foster. She is spayed, UTD on shots, and her adoption fee is $30. (Less)
