Fred's Info...

I am a special needs pet, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Fred's Story...
Fred and another dog got their rescuer’s attention when she saw them caged in a
small enclosure in the freezing cold, lacking food and water, standing in their own
waste--and with precious little shelter from the elements. They were not in good
condition, and when they were fed, the food was dropped from a window into the
gateless enclosure. After a period of Herculean effort, the dogs were rescued.
Things are looking up!

Fred is a sweet, friendly dog, but is raw material at this point. Fred is getting
adjusted to the world outside his enclosure so he’s a bit shy and timid but warming
up quickly. Considering his background, that is perfectly understandable.
What Fred does have is great potential! Although Fred has had a miserable life, with a little love, affection and understanding, he will buff up to be a fantastic companion dog!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Fred, a Houston Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie for sale in Houston, or seeking a Collie dog from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston 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 Houston 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 Collie breeders who help with Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
