Slick's Story...

Hello,  my name's Slick! I was rescued by a good samaritan who saw my owner abusing me, but she cannot keep me because her current dog is dog aggressive. Therefore, I'm living in a separate area of the house in a very large crate until a foster or adopter can be found for me.  Here's a bit bout me: I'm probably about 5-6 months old and probably a pit mix. I'm very friendly and a bit overly so: I will need work on mouthiness, nipping, and 'keeping it under control'. I seem to enjoy attention from adults and children, but I would be too much for little children.  I met a cat once and was curious (wanted to play) and I have shown no aggression towards the few dogs I've met so far. I'm very active, and will need a good bit of exercise. When we go walking on leash I have a habit of grabbing the leash and holding it in my mouth as we walk. I enjoy playing fetch and searching for biscuits in yard. I'm a smart boy who likes to have something to do! I'm scheduled to be fixed and updated on vaccines soon. If you would consider fostering or adopting, please contact HPHH for more information.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Slick, a Tyrone 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 Tyrone, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Tyrone.

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