Darci's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Darci's Story...
Darci is a black beauty. Though her pictures may not show it, she is rather small. Only about knee height and around 30 pounds, she is a small wonder. Darci is a very quiet girl on the timid side, and may take just a touch of time to open up. Once she knows new people are trustworthy, she is loving and affectionate.

It is hard to tell if Darci was ever allowed in a house in her pre-shelter days. She is slow to enter our house but if she can find a comfy chair to curl up in, she is a very happy girl.

Darci is very good with other dogs but doesn't have a lot of patience with puppies. For that reason we stress she should go to a home where the family knows about herding dogs and any children that would be around her be at least eight years old or older. Darci is good around our cat but our cat is very dog savvy and all introductions to new dogs and cats should be done properly.

Darci is good in a crate in the car and through the night. She is good on a leash but needs to build confidence on walks.

If you are interested in giving this girl the life she needs and deserves, please read on here and/or read through the Adoption Process page of our website -

All potential adopters are expected to complete an application and provide pictures of their yard, patio, and/or balcony making sure we can see the fence line and/or railing. The application can be completed and submitted from our website - - and is found under Resources. Applications will be reviewed for approval before setting an appointment to come meet and possibly adopt the dog of interest. In addition, those who live in a rental property are expected to provide proof that they are allowed to have a dog where they live.

Each of our rescued dogs has been de-wormed if necessary, de-flea'd (with topical treatment if old enough, and by medicated bath if too young), spayed/neutered, microchipped, is up to date on shots, and has been fully examined by a veterinarian. In addition, each adopted dog comes with a starter baggie of the food it has been eating, a few treats for training purposes, a rawhide chew, a lead and collar, and a folder containing pertinent records.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Darci, a Oakley 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 Oakley, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Oakley.

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