JOSH's Info...

JOSH's Story...
Josh is a very nice 5-year old pure bred border collie with one blue eye and one brown eye. He is a black & white smooth coat, although his hair is actually quite long for a smooth coat. He is a very sweet boy who is well socialized with other dogs. And Josh loves to play with toys and is ball obsessed. He also walks great on leash. Doesn’t appear to be a barker - and if he does it’s very minimal.
In Josh’s former life he must have enjoyed rocks as some of his teeth are ground down. Doesn’t bother him a bit though. Sadly Josh was picked up as a stray after he was hit by a car on July 5th (escaped yard from fear of fireworks perhaps????). Josh was a very lucky boy as he was taken to a shelter wherein the shelter's vet was able to place him under anesthesia and manipulate his hip back into place, therefore avoiding expensive hip surgery and a long recovery period. Today he shows no sign of being hurt, other than missing a small patch of hair on his back and a thin strip on his tail as the result of road rash.
All in all a very nice dog with medium energy and has lots of love to give for many years - Josh makes a great nap companion as he likes to rest his head on your stomach.
He has not been evaluated with cats.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

JOSH, a San Pedro Border Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie for sale in San Pedro, or seeking a Border Collie 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 Border Collie breeders who help with Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Pedro paves the way for another one to be saved.
