Pansy's Story...
Pansy is a rare border collie/snow leopard/english setter mix- in cooler regions known as a English Borderpard- and an extremely hard to find species in our warmer Georgia clime! Pansy is more than just a pretty face, tho. This bright, inquisitive girl has a lot to offer the right home— she enjoys car rides, playing with other dogs, investigating the back yard, or just hanging out with you in the house. Pansy does have a touch of shyness at first meeting, especially with other, larger dogs, but does great after getting to know them, and she enjoys dogs her own size very much. She has really blossomed and enjoys meeting people of all ages. What Pansy does not like, however, is to be left alone during the day, in a crate (as a semi-wild Borderpard, she has a natural disinclination to cages). Pansy gets very anxious when crated while you are gone to work, and ends up injuring herself as she tries to get out of the crate. Her ideal home would include a stay at home parent. Despite her dislike of being crated during the day, Pansy is just about fully house-trained, and sleeps in a crate in your bedroom without problems- but prefers your bed! Short fences are no challenge to Miz Pansy (remember her snow cat heritage)- she jumps them with ease, so a 5-6 ft fence is a must, although she perhaps may enjoy learning to put her jumping skills to good use in an agility arena. Pansy is now about a year old, and weighs in at a petite 35 pounds. Pansy is being fostered with her smaller cat cousins, but she does like to chase them on occasion (just to, you know, keep them on their toes). Pansy is being fostered in Athens, Georgia.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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