LUCY (Courtesy List)'s Story...
Meet Lucy! Lucy is 9 month old Border Collie/Aussie Mix. She is a very sweet and loving dog. She loves everyone including other dogs and children.

The problem is with her sister. They have been together since birth and she has started to show aggression towards her sister whenever she gets overly excited. Most of the time they play and are happy with each other, however, when Lucy gets excited and barking, things change. After speaking to experts, it is more than likely that this aggression will escalate and someone will eventually be injured.

Lucy has never shown any aggression to any other dogs. In hindsight, it was not a good idea to get two puppies that are of the same sex from the same litter – especially females!

A few things about her:

• Lucy LOVES LOVES LOVES to play fetch. She retrieves the tennis ball and brings it and drops it at your feet. She would rather do this than anything else.
• Lucy is not housetrained but she doesn’t mind a crate so it would be fairly easy to train her.
• She gets along with other dogs (except for occasional issues with sis).
• She loves children. I have an 8 year old granddaughter who she loves but will jump on her with excitement.
• Lucy has never been around cats.
• I have taken Lucy to herding classes and she does very well. She has a real instinct for the sport and would probably do well in agility or any other sport.
• Lucy is excellent in the car. I have a seatbelt harness that I put on her and she just lays down during the ride.
• She is very good on a leash and would be a very good hiking partner. She likes to stick close to her person.
• Lucy likes water and will play in a kiddie pool.
• Lucy is very loving and cuddly. She loves to be petted.

Basically, Lucy is a great dog. It is sad that I have to give her up but it’s not fair to her sister to keep them together. My goal is to find a great, active home for her to live in. She is current on shots, spayed, and microchipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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