Fostered in Spokane Valley, WA

Why hello! My name is Leo and I am a young, sweet, affectionate Border Collie mix who came to Power of the Paw from a kill shelter in Southern Idaho. I have the sweetest face, and it definitely matches my personality. My foster mom says I am so loyal and cuddly that she can hardly stand it. I also know "sit" and "shake" and can't wait for you to teach me more. Training is important for young puppies like me. I'm a pretty big puppy too, so manners will be important as I grow and become an adult.

Speaking of puppies, I do have a puppy habit. I love to chew on things. By providing me with things that are proper chew toys, I will learn what is and isn't okay to chew on. I haven't had any accidents in my foster home, and I do really well in the crate. I don't make a peep while my foster mom is at work.

Foster mom has a son that I like to play with. I'd love to have a fenced yard so I can burn off energy. Walks will be important too, so that I can learn to respect you as my pack leader. I'm really looking for guidance, as POTP says that I have loads of potential. My breed mix means that I am very intellegent, so I will need you to keep my mind busy as I learn and grow. If I get bored, I may get into things I shouldn't. So far, I haven't shown fear of loud noises, so expose me to as many new things as possible so that I am well socialized and ready for anything life throws at me.

I just want a home where I can relax and enjoy my family with long cuddles and attention. If you're that home, please go to and start the process so we can set up a meet n greet! I'm so ready to go home!

ADOPTION FEE: $200 includes neuter, DAPP, Rabies, Bordetella, microchip, deworm and vet check.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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