Willow's Story...
Willow is a somewhat shy Border Collie (or mix) who is probably not more than a 1 ½ years. She was a stray…apparently deserted by someone. She’s cautious with new people, but loves them once she gets to know them. She is a big schmoozer…she loves cuddle.
She’s a pretty calm for a young dog and seems not to require vigorous exercise to relax...but she needs exercise since she is a young and agile dog. Willow seems not to be a barker in the house or yard, but did alert bark to a new dog at the fence…then befriended that dog. While she doesn’t seem to have learned any training commands she is attentive and willing…and she’s good on leash and travels well in the car. We think she needs to be an only dog since she’s not good at sharing attention with another dog. But outside of the home she seems fine with other dogs…plays with them.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Willow, a Gig Harbor 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 Gig Harbor, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Gig Harbor.

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