Ivy's Story...
Meet Ivy!
Hello, my name is Ivy. I was born January 15th, 2015; I am 9 months old. My original family was told I am a Border Collie, Blue Heeler, Australian Shepherd Mix. As you can imagine I am a high energy dog and need an environment that allows me lots of room to run and explore. Due to the Border Collie in me, I tend to want to play catch all the time… but can also easily entertain myself for hours with a bone. I love people, but am very protective of my owners. If I am off leash, I feel more confident when I meet people and usually just want a belly rub. However, when I am on leash, I am a little more guarded and it may take me a little longer to become comfortable with new people. My current parents take me to play with other dogs all the time, and for the most part, I get along with all of them. I am not familiar with cats, and the few children I have been around, I have seemed to get along with.
While at home alone, I am in my crate, but my parents make sure that it is never longer than 4 hours (unless its bedtime, then I usually out sleep my parents). They realize that I need time to stretch and socialize. Unfortunately, I tend to guard my food and my parents are now making me eat out of their hands with the hopes that I will become less protective. The only other time that I might get a little growly is when I am tired. Near the end of the night, I often put myself to bed. If I am forced to stay up, I may simply get grouchy.
Over all I am a happy, attentive puppy. I was in basic puppy training from 3-6 months and know all the basic commands; Sit, Stay, Roll over, Wait, Leave it, In your crate, No, Find your Frisbee/bone/ball. I am very smart and ready to learn more.
Please understand I am being adopted out through a rescue and as such there is an adoption application that must be completed and return to Just N Time Rescue before any meet and greets will be set up. I am spayed, up to date with my vaccines, micro-chipped, crate trained and house trained. My adoption fee $350.00. For more information my me, or to obtain an adoption application please email justntimerescue@hotmail.com ; please allow 48 hours for a response before re-emailing. The rescue is run 100% by very busy volunteers; they will get back to you as quickly as they can. Thank you in advance for thinking of rescuing! Sincerely, Ivy

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ivy, a Barrie Border Collie/Blue Heeler dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie/Blue Heeler for sale in Barrie, or seeking a Border Collie/Blue Heeler dog from a breeder in Barrie.

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