Penny's Story...
"PENNY" -- is a 2-y.o. purebred smooth-coated Border Collie, given up for exhibiting fear-aggression and herding the children in her old home, where she lived peacefully with a cat and bunny. She has shown a little interest in the kitty at her foster home but will take a game of ball over the kitty any day. She gets along beautifully with other dogs. She loves to play, especially with tennis balls. Penny is beginning some basic agility in her foster home and works willingly for treats. She would be an awesome agility or flyball dog for an experienced dog owner who can help her through her fears. She LOVES MEN! Penny is crate-trained, spayed, UTD on shots, heartworm neg. an on and prevent. She is being fostered in NY State.

You MUST first fill out an adoption application AND have a home visit BEFORE being considered for any NEBCR dog. As this process can take time, we recommend that you complete these first 2 steps BEFORE inquiring about a specific dog.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Penny, a Stephentown 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 Stephentown, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Stephentown.

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