Meet Brewtus!  Brewtus originally came from the city shelter when he was just 6 months old.  We placed him into a home shortly after but they realized they were not cut out for the "border collie breed" and had to return him 6 months later.  He is now 1 year and ready for his forever home with someone who understands his breed and needs.

The Border Collie is very intelligent and aware of its surroundings. It is able to be trained to a high degree. This is one of the hardest working dogs thriving on praise. Border Collies are represented among the leaders in competitive levels in various sports, excelling in agility skills, obedience, sheepdog trials and Frisbee™. They are highly energetic with great stamina.  To be truly happy, they need a lot of consistent leadership, extensive daily exercise, and a job to occupy their minds. Border Collies will often challenge their owners’ authority when they are adolescents. If you allow him to take over, without enough socialization and mental and physical exercise, he can be highly reactive and sound sensitive, making him a poor choice for families with young children.  It is not an ideal pet for people who do not plan to spend a lot of time with it. These dogs are too intelligent to lie around the house all day with nothing to do. If you are not willing to put many hours a day into keeping these dogs well exercised in both mind and body, then it is recommended you do not adopt a Border Collie.

Brewtus IS a typical border collie.  He gets bored easily and needs lots of socialization and exercise.  Once he is tired he is very affectionate and a loyal companion.  A fenced in yard is required.  He does great at doggy daycare so if someone works long hours this would be a good solution.  He would do great in a home with another dog his size.  A home without cats and without kids is recommended.

Brewtus's adoption fee is $75 and he is neutered, vaccinated, heartworm negative and current on flea/heartworm preventative.  If interested, feel free to email Adoptions@facespayneuter.org

About FACE/IndyFeral

About Our Rescue Group...

FACE and IndyFeral are two like minded organizations who have recently merged to help more cats and dogs in Indianapolis. We are committed to ending pet overpopulation by providing affordable and accessible spaying/neutering as well as wellness services. We also promote adoption, rather than buying or breeding. FACE focuses on owned cats and dogs while IndyFeral seeks to reduce the stray and feral cat overpopulation in Indianapolis through the non-lethal method of Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR), not trap and kill.

Our Adoption Process...

All of our cats and dogs available for adoption have been spay/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and tested for feline leukemia/FIV or heartworm. A simple application for adoption is required and is designed to increase the likelihood that any cat or dog we adopt will have a secure home environment for the remainder of his/her life. The adoption fee is only $100 for dogs and between $50-$75 for cats and includes all of the above. A great deal.
