Nikki's Story...
Nikki is a sweet and beautiful Border Collie mix that's about 2.5 years old. She loves kids and people, especially females. She is leash trained, occasional pulling but not annoyingly so. She plays catch with a Frisbee, she like the soft, fabric kind. She loves the water and is an excellent swimmer. She is good off leash and on trails so long as she is being monitored. She won't run off, but will stop to examine something sometimes and may need to be encouraged to move along. She gets along well with other dogs but will correct a dog if they are too rough. We have not seen Nikki with cats.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nikki, a Bellingham 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 Bellingham, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Bellingham.

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