Austin is an outgoing, energetic border collie mix who loves to snuggle at the end of the day. He's about 3 years old. This handsome guy gets along great with people and dogs but doesn't care for cats or small animals. Austin gets very attached to his people and would love to live with someone who is home most of the day or will take him along to work or on errands. He absolutely needs exercise and mental stimulation every day. Austin is house-trained and has good manners. He would be happiest with an experienced dog owner as he is high energy and very smart but has some insecurities about being abandoned.
To help pay for vet bills and care (transportation, food, toys, etc..) a $100 donation is requested at the time of adoption. All of our adoptions are contingent upon an approved application, home visit, reference check, obedience training agreement, and signing of adoption contract. All our dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped before adoption. Our dogs are companion animals that live indoors as part of your family. Please do not apply if your plan is to have them as outside dogs, garage dogs, porch dogs or outside kennel dogs.
All of our dogs are in private foster homes. We are not a shelter with hours. A visit can be arranaged after an adoption questionnaire has been filled out and sent in. Please try email first. We are all volunteers that work so we can not easily take or make phone calls.
