Shiloh's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Shiloh's Story...
Meet Shiloh! This pretty, doe-eyed 4 year old BC is a shy girl. She came to WBCR with her older sister Lily after being surrendered to a shelter due to a terrible incident with the family feline. We were able to take them into the rescue in the nick of time, and are delighted to be able give these two nice dogs a chance.

Shiloh is definitely the less confident, more reserved, and mellower of the two, and it took her a little while to open up in her foster home. She started by sleeping in corners or behind furniture, she’s now out in the open with the other dogs. Shiloh has come to enjoy attention and affection from her foster family, but she is not demanding about it – she is just a quiet, loving girl with her familiar humans. She is good with other dogs and enjoys playtime with other canines. She really enjoys the company of her sister Lily and we are on the fence whether or not need to be placed together since there are advantages and disadvantages to them as a pair. Shiloh also does like her squeaky toys and will play with them too. She is fairly quiet, but does make all kinds of talking sounds when excited! She is more Border Collie than Lily, and she shows some herdyness and nippyness typical of the breed. Shiloh will not be placed in a home with cats. She is a moderate energy girl, and after a good dose of exercise she enjoys lying in the sun and soaking up some rays.

Although it doesn’t seem like Shiloh has had much in the way of training, she is one of those kind of naturally well-mannered dogs. She would surely benefit from training using positive, gentle methods, as it would boost her confidence and engage her mind. She is housetrained.

All in all, Shiloh is a lovely, agreeable girl who will thrive in a home dedicated to building her confidence and enjoying her company! If you are looking for a milder Border Collie to be your sweet little shadow, Shiloh may be the girl for you.

Shiloh is spayed, up to date on shots, and living in a loving foster home near Denver, CO.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shiloh, a Denver 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 Denver, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Denver.

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