Lucy's Story...
Lucy is a two year old female we pulled from a shelter in Big Spring Tx back in March. She's with her foster mom who is considering her for adoption at this time. If she decides she is not the right fit for her home, Lucy will become available for adoption.

Here's some details about Lucy's progress from her foster momma:
Lucy is slowly coming out of her shell. She is seriously damaged. Hides in her crate, didn't know her name, has no training. She now comes to me, greets me at the door and sleeps part of the night next to my bed. Has bonded with my border collie pup and is getting along most of the time with my corgi. She is extremely fearful of men. I have her in an agility class. Still walking with head and tail down..but compliant. Can't tell if she will enjoy it yet. Probably a 2 or 3 month time period before it's clear. She still throws up every time she is in car. Hates leaving the house. . .take her on a Nature Trail 3 or 4 times a week...still scared I will leave her. Very sweet and protective of the property. We have calves behind our house and she definitely watches them closely.

Keep following Lucy's story as we get updates from her foster momma!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lucy, a Allen 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 Allen, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Allen.

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