AMAZING PRECIOUS's Story...
I have this amazing foster dog. Her name is Precious. I had 24 hours to decide if I would foster her or she would go to the animal shelter. I was hesitant. Not only that, I was afraid. You see, Precious is 12 years old and she is blind.

I asked myself what are the chances of someone adopting a 12 year old blind dog? Will she be with me until she dies? Will she be able to adapt to a new situation at this stage of her life?

I worried about her quality of life being old and blind and all. Well, she has enhanced mine and also that of my family and my own dogs.

This little dog has completely changed my way of thinking in only a few weeks.

Precious is an approximately 12 year old border collie mix. She is listed as "special needs" because she is blind due to cataracts.

This sweet girl has lost her home because her owner moved to assisted living and was no long able to care for her. We were told we had 24 hours to take her or she would end up at the shelter, so we cleared the deck for Precious!

Precious is a pretty determined and independent dog. She has learned to rely on her other senses and gets around quite well in her foster home. It only took her a few days to learn the layout of her new house. She is fine with the other dogs and is housetrained.

This is a spirited little dog that weighs about 28 pounds. Precious loves going for leash walks and is quite adventurous. An observer recently referred to her as "Dora the Explorer" because she is not at all hesitant to discover whatever environment she is in.

Precious is a quiet dog who rarely barks. She rides well in the car and enjoys exploring outside. Three times a week she needs to have eye drops administered. The cost of the eye drops is approximately $15 a month.

You must have a fenced yard to adopt Precious and it's helpful if you do not have a lot of stairs. There are just a few stairs in her foster home and Precious navigates them without any problem. She does not like to be grabbed, so we have her marked 'no small children'.

Precious' adoption fee is $100. She is spayed and up to date on vaccinations, comes with a collar, ID tag, her medications and a bag of food.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

AMAZING PRECIOUS, a Nampa Border Collie/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog for sale in Nampa, or seeking a Border Collie/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog from a breeder in Nampa.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Nampa 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 Nampa 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/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog breeders who help with Border Collie/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Nampa paves the way for another one to be saved.
