Blackjack's Info...

Blackjack's Story...
Blackjack is an older guy with some stiffness at times in his bones. He is currently on a joint supplement which is helping him move easier. Blackjack is a SUPER easy dog! EASY EASY EASY! Not one single accident in the house, even when the foster was really late home from work one day. Well housebroken, crate trained, and excellent house manners. Very polite when taking treats and food. Never jumps. Blackjack LOVES his ball. He is always up for a good game of fetch and he's not possessive or aggressive about it either. Blackjack will stop and go lie down when he is told enough. He is good with the other dogs, cats, and creatures although he's not too crazy about when they get right up in his personal space and may snap at them. Blackjack would not be a good match for a super busy home with tons of people and especially not kids. Blackjack is ready to settle down in his forever home. Who is ready for this sweet and easy guy?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Blackjack, a Tempe 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 Tempe, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Tempe.

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