Susana's Story...
Name: Susana
Color: Black and White
Breed: Border Collie Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 2 Years 2 Months
Susana is a sweet but shy girl looking for a quiet, active home. Susana will need to go home with someone experienced with herding breeds and she may need to be signed up for positive reward based obedience classes before her adoption can be finalized. This will provide Susana and her new family with the skills needed to build her confidence.

Big fan of: Being a high energy breed, Susana will need owners who will take her on long jogs or runs every day. This is the kind of outlet she needs. Once warmed up to you, Susana loves to crawl into your lap and put her paws up to hug you.
Dream Home: Susana will need to go to an adult only home and would likely not do well with a family who has children over often as she is so timid around loud noises and fast movements. Susana would love to live with a confident male canine who can show her she needn't be afraid and she could possibly adjust to an EXTREMELY confident cat that won't let her chase after it, as herding breeds are wont to do.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Susana, a Bellingham 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 Bellingham, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Bellingham.

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