Lad's Story...
Name: Lad
Breed: Border Collie/Australian Shepherd mix
Age: Young Adult
Gender: Male

Lad is a young adult male Border Collie/Australian Shepherd who was surrendered to a high kill animal shelter and was absolutely terrified--- he froze in the middle of his concrete run, eyes huge, and shook like a leaf for 4 days until his time was up. Last day save by a volunteer, and this guy is now grinning from ear to ear to be out of the pound. That's an experience he never wants to repeat. Lad is people and dog friendly, cats unknown, and seeking an active home with a yard for him to play in. He likes walks, likes to be petted, does well meeting new people, and thrives on security after his experience... so we need to make sure his next home is a forever one. House training is unknown right now, he crates for the workday, and we will learn more as he settles into a temp foster. Please consider Lad, and giving him a forever home.

Requirements: Home with outside space for him

You can email with questions and for a preadopt application. This dog has been spayed/neutered, vaccinated as age appropriate, tested for heartworm disease if age appropriate, and dewormed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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