Dillon's Story...
Dillon is a male blue-eyed sable merle collie that weighs about 70 pounds. When he was found as a stray, his fur was very matted and his neck had badly infected large sores so that he had to be shaved. He is now neutered, vaccinated, and heart worm negative. Dillon loves everyone he meets and is very sure that each and every person wants to pet him. He is a sweet and gentle dog that even allows a pushy kitten to share his food while he eats. Dillon has a hearing deficit but is able to hear clapping. This seems to be the most effective way to get his attention rather than using a loud voice. He can also hear the bells on the groomer's door. Dillon's fur is growing in on his body but he will always wear some scars on his nose. He has been enjoying going to the groomer twice a week for a moisturizing shampoo and his fur is getting downright fluffy. Dillon doesn't play with toys or chew them up but he does seem to enjoy chewing on a bone now and then. Dillon is approximately six to eight years old and is an absolute joy. He loves to go for walks, seems to like riding in cars, and has a healthy respect for the two cats in his foster family. This friendly, lovely dog can't wait to meet his forever family.
Dillon is being fostered in Ohio

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dillon, a Powell Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie for sale in Powell, or seeking a Collie dog from a breeder in Powell.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Powell 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 Powell 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 Collie breeders who help with Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Powell paves the way for another one to be saved.
