Brewtus's Story...

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

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Brewtus, a Indianapolis 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 Indianapolis, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Indianapolis.

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