Tobie's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Tobie's Story...

Tobie unexpectedly found himself at a local shelter when his original people moved and could not take him with them.  He is about 4 years old and around 50 lbs.  He is a sweet, gentle boy with people and loves all animals that are bigger than 20 lbs.

Tobie is not a big barker and would be a very easy dog for someone looking for their first dog or for just an easygoing companion.  He is housebroken and is a gentleman who is never destructive.  His manners are excellent. 

He will walk on a leash, but requires an Easy Walk harness to reduce pulling and he is getting better.  Tobie s reluctant to get into a car but, with persuasion, will go and is a good passenger once in the vehicle. 

Tobie is somewhat skittish and would likely do best in a home with older children.  He also is not a fan of cats or dogs smaller than 20 lbs, but he'd love a medium to large sized playmate.  He could just as easily be an only dog as well.

Tobie's adoption fee is $175 and includes vaccinations, veterinary well visit, neuter and microchip.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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