Nick's Story...
Meet Nick! Nick is a young male, neutered, purebred Border Collie. Nick has the classic Border Collie look and is about 14 months old. He is house trained and crate trained.

Nick enjoys the fenced in yard and enjoys playing with toys and tennis balls. He will do well if he gets regular, consistent activity. He will enjoy whatever activity is presented to him. He will enjoy multiple daily walks and/or romps in the yard. With work, he might be able to participate in canine sports such as agility or Frisbee, but would need training for that. He is affectionate and kind, but will need training for basic commands such as sit, stay, and lie down. Nick is smart and will learn quickly with a daily regimen of instruction.

Nick lives with another dog in his foster home and gets along well with him. He will do well in a home with or without another dog. He has not been tested with cats. He is a rough coated Border Collie, so regular grooming will be important for Nick. He has a double coat, so should never be shaved, as the undercoat helps to keep him cool in the hot summers.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nick, a Oliver Springs 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 Oliver Springs, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Oliver Springs.

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