Gypsy's Story...
Gypsy is a sweet, 5-year-old border collie mix with a beautiful brindle coat. She appears to have been loved at some point in her life but was found living outside with several other dogs. Even after this hardship, she is a great house-dog and loves to snuggle. However, she is a bit insecure about her next meal and tends to guard her food a little. Thus if her new owner has other dogs, she should initially be fed separately or in a crate. In general, she is fine with other dogs but prefers smaller to larger dogs and ignores cats.
Gypsy is house-trained and crate trained. She knows basic commands, such as sit and down, and is working on leash walking. Although Gypsy is a middle-aged dog, she stills to play and run around so a fenced in yard is preferable. She cannot be kept as an outside pet nor be allowed to roam freely.
Gypsy is spayed, up to date on her vaccination, heartworm negative and on heartworm and flea preventative medicine. As with all dogs in this area, she will need to be kept on heartworm preventative year-round to ensure that she never has to go through heartworm treatment.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gypsy, a Oliver Springs 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 Oliver Springs, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Oliver Springs.

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