Tizzy - ADOPTED's Story...

If you are looking for a young, energetic girl that shows a desire to work or just as an active pet Tizzy is looking for her special human/family.

She is an eighteen month old, high energy kinda girl that would love long romps in the woods or a home with acreage for her to explore. She was pulled from a high kill shelter in VA and had had little in the way of training or even love and companionship so she can be shy at first but bonds quickly. She loves everyone she meets but should probably not go into a home with small children as she could bowl them over with her abundant enthusiasm. She is learning but does jump on people when she is excited. A firm "No, down" as you turn your back gets the point across but she needs to be reminded. Tizzy has appointed herself the job of keeping the cats off the porch and encourages them to stay down in the barn area. She doesn't hurt them but she is persistent in getting them off the porch. She will "Leave it" (cats) but, again, she needs reminders. She has shown no interest in the goats or horse and is respectful of electric livestock fencing.

Tizzy can and will climb a six foot chain link fence so she would need to be supervised if being let out into a fenced area. She currently is being fostered on a 60+ acre farm and is in a large, covered kennel at night. She has never offered to run off and is within calling distance any time I go out to check on her. She crates very well and this is recommended when leaving her inside unattended as she is still very puppyish and will find something entertaining to do/chew. She is not toy motivated but does love a food reward when she has done something you asked of her.

Although there are other dogs where Tizzy is being fostered she shows no desire to play with them but will lay in the sun with them and nap. She is not aggressive with other dogs but she has tried to be a little bossy with the older resident Border Collie. No teeth, no fights. True to the breed she can be very stubborn at times and has selective hearing when she is focused. She has great potential for someone that is willing to invest some time and love.

Tizzy has been spayed, had all shots, is heartworm neg and currently on Revolution monthly.

She is fostered in the southwest Virginia area. Her adoption fee is $150. Contact In His Hands Small Animal Rescue at, for more information on Tizzy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tizzy - ADOPTED, a Richmond 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 Richmond, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Richmond.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Richmond 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 Richmond 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 Richmond paves the way for another one to be saved.
