Simon and Garfunkel (ETAA)'s Story...
We have had Simeon and Garfunkel here on our farm for only 5 days, and they have already made so much progress! We learned quickly that they would do almost anything for a treat (peanut butter seems to be their favorite). It does take a few minutes for them to feel comfortable coming to you but even that has lessened each day. And, after they do come to you, they’re very eager to be petted and rubbed.

Their intelligence is very obvious in a lot of ways. When I got the leashes out for only the third time, they seemed to understand that they would get to go on a walk, and were eager. During walks, they enjoy every new thing they can discover; tracking, smelling, especially getting in the water (they get hot easily, so that probably explains the water enjoyment).

They are calm and quiet when nothing much is going on. They have not barked at night (even on the first night here). However, they will make wonderful watch dogs, as anytime someone pulls into our driveway or walks outside, they are alert and aware, barking to let us know something different is going on. During our walks, though, when encountering the cattle, they never tried to chase them or bark.

Simeon and Garfunkel are definitely happier when together; separating them seems to cause some anxiety, especially for Simeon. There was some expected acclimation time between them and our existing dogs; however, that all seemed to be mostly worked out fairly quickly. Neither dog has shown any aggression tendencies while here (toward animals or people).

While Simeon is somewhat more cautious, Garfunkel seems to want to trust. He shows signs of being very loyal to whoever will treat him well. Simeon is always willing to give kisses whenever you spend time with him. Both are beautiful dogs and will make someone very happy and loving companions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Simon and Garfunkel (ETAA), a Harrisonburg Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Border Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Border Collie for sale in Harrisonburg, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Border Collie dog from a breeder in Harrisonburg.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Harrisonburg 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 Harrisonburg 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!
