Little Ms. Betsy Boo is extremely cute! Slowly but surely, she is coming out of her shell. She is still guarded but with the help of her brother Indy and the rest of her foster siblings, she is coming around. She actually starts running around the yard chasing after our other dogs. This is a BIG step for her. She is realizing that it is pretty cool being outside and hanging with everyone else. She still needs work on housetraining but it is getting better and better. It's so nice to see her be able to lay down in the living room with everyone else instead of hiding in another room.

Betsy will definitely need another dog in the family that she can rely on while she gets used to a new environment or a family that has someone home all of the time. She will also need a family that will allow her to come out of her shell at her own pace. So if she needs a couple of days of hiding, that's what she needs. She will let you know when she is ready to interact. We know that she will probably regress somewhat, that's why she will need a loving, patient home who won't yell at her if she has an accident in the house or push her to do things she isn't ready for. She has found her voice and when she gets really excited with it, we just call her name and she stops.

We are very partial to this tiny little girl and want to make sure she gets the best possible forever home she deserves.

Betsy ("Betsy Boo") has been with us for a week now. She is an extremely shy 8 month old TINY border collie. She came with her brother Indy ("Indy Jones") which has helped her come out of her shell. I have to say she is the sweetest little pup. Due to her shyness, we have had her on a leash when not in her crate so that we can lead her outside to go potty. She is taking her time getting used to our crowd and we are giving her the time she needs. The first two days she stayed in the shower, slowly ventured out to the back of the kitchen and now has been spending her time with us in the living room. She does need coaxing to go outside but she does eventually makes it out and has been venturing out either playing with her brother or exploring the yard. The last two days, she has even come up to solicit pets but then runs back to her safe spot. We are working on her submissive peeing (which is expected due to her shyness) and getting her to potty outside. She came from a breeder who didn't want the three littermates so I suspect she may have spent a lot of time in a crate or kennel and thinks that's where she is supposed to go potty.

I have to say she is the prettiest little girl and she will make someone very happy as a companion. I'll have more to update next week on Betsy Boo's progress.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Betsy, a WAterford 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 WAterford, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in WAterford.

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