Shiner (Courtesy Post)'s Story...
Courtesy Post!

Shiner has lived all of his life outside on a farm, but he has been on heartworm preventive, etc. and slept in a heated pen at night. Around Memorial Day, his owner noticed he was very sick and carried him to the vet because Shiner could not walk on his own. He had lost at least 20 lbs. and after much testing, it was determined that he is diabetic. He had previously been groomed but the groomer had shaved him even though the owner had asked her not to. Shiner has been in the vet’s clinic until today. The owner said that with their lifestyle, they cannot be at home to give him his 2 insulin shots per day. She had emailed and called around to find rescue; her husband wanted to just go ahead and kill him. A vet tech called me and asked if I could possibly help and then the woman called and asked for help. I told her we would do our best to find him a place and that if she would bring him to the shelter, we would make sure he gets his shots and asked for some insulin to get us started. So she brought him and all of his paperwork to the shelter today (I have never seen so much paperwork on a dog at the shelter before, including his registration papers). He is neutered; he will be 8 in August (I think she said). He is very sweet, but you can imagine that he is scared. He has never been around other dogs or cats, and I was envisioning how a new prisoner might feel upon arrival with the other inmates throwing out their comments.

Shiner has been tested with a couple of dogs and did fine; he doesn’t fence fight while in the field. In the cat room he ate the canned cat food while the cats gathered around him. He has also visited the nursing home and has good manners.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shiner (Courtesy Post), a Avon 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 Avon, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Avon.

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