Nora's Story...
"NORA" -- a 2 year old smooth coated, spayed female, UTD on all her shots. Nora has had little formal training, but is responding well to basic training in her foster home. She thrives on routine. She is somewhat timid in new experiences but with reassurance, she accepts them quickly. She loves people, car rides, and lying in your lap for a nap. This girl is extremely ball obsessed! She lives and breathes her tennis balls, playing fetch for hours. Nora bonds quickly and loves to hug her people with her front paws. She is a dominant female, but has learned to get along with other dogs, but prefers her two-legged playmates. Nora will only be placed in an experienced dog home, preferably one experienced with Border Collies; and without children under the age of 12. Nora is being fostered in CT.

You MUST first fill out an adoption application AND have a home visit BEFORE being considered for any NEBCR dog. As this process can take time, we recommend that you complete these first 2 steps BEFORE inquiring about a specific dog.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nora, a Stephentown 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 Stephentown, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Stephentown.

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