Boone's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Boone's Story...
This is Boone! He is about 3 years old and he is a Lab/ Border Collie Mix. He acts more like a Border Collie than a Lab as he carries many of the known traits....Herding anything and everything! Boone also loves to play with other dogs and would enjoy doggie daycare.

Boone does better with children 12 and older- he LOVES kids- just doesn't know his own strength and might bump into smaller children. He has never really been around cats that we know of. He is a huge lover and wants to be at your side at all times. Boone is very VERY smart. He had 12 one on one sessions with a dog trainer Anna Greenald and knows most commands: Sit, Stay, Touch, Give, Off, Get Back, Go Potty.

The is handsome guy is neutered and up to date on Rabies and distemper vaccines. We have past history records from puppy up, which will accompany Boone to his new home.

I think he can be a little anxiety ridden with new situations but eases into them once comforted. He is crated when we are not home. He loves to swim and go for walks and runs. Boone loves trips to dog park to burn energy and we use the "touch" command to keep him close. He is used to treat and praise reward-type (positive reinforcement) training.

Boone has no medical issues, maybe could shed about 10lb, but couldn't we all?

If you are interested in adopting Boone, please contact us. Boone is living in foster care Cottage Grove.

An adoption application is required to adopt and that can be found on our website at

Boone's adoption fee is $125.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Boone, a Madison Border Collie/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie/Labrador Retriever for sale in Madison, or seeking a Border Collie/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Madison.

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