Charlotte's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with dogs.

Charlotte's Story...
Charlotte, a shelter favorite, is one sweet girl and has a beautiful, soft and flowing coat to match her personality. She is one of our 'rock stars' in play groups, meaning that she is super social with other dogs and loves to play. She is what we call a 'greeter/helper' dog, meaning she is great at getting dogs to enter the play yard and she play bows to invite them to play with her.

Charlotte is much less playful when it comes to meeting new people. Probably out of fear, when strangers stand at her kennel door she usually growls and barks to scare them away. That works, and of course the strangers move on and adopt another dog! Once she knows someone, like the regular volunteers and staff, she is very happy to see them and just melts into a little love bug. Charlotte has spent a weekend in a foster home and did very well with the foster mom and the resident female dog. She loves the 'good life' and could get used to that very quickly.

Her ideal home would be one without young children as unpredictable movements, noise and activities could frighten her. Peace and predictability would suit her well. What a gem Charlotte is!

Charlotte's adoption fee is $175; she is microchipped, spayed, and up to date on vaccines. Some of our pets are in foster care. If you are interested in a specific pet, please contact the shelter at (618) 939-7389 to arrange a meeting.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Charlotte, a Columbia German Shepherd Dog/Border Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog/Border Collie for sale in Columbia, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog/Border Collie dog from a breeder in Columbia.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Columbia 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 Columbia 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 German Shepherd Dog/Border Collie breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog/Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Columbia paves the way for another one to be saved.
