JAX (Courtesy List)'s Story...
Jax is a handsome, red and white, rough coat, male Border Collie. He just turned 8
years old, but looks and acts younger than his age. At most times, Jax has a more
laid back personality compared to most Border Collies and rather lay around the
house to rest and would ask for belly rubs; but, when he’s in the mood, he’ll play fetch with his squeaky ball or with his stuff toys. He would be a perfect companion for a family who wants a quiet, loving pet with good house manner.  We found Jax at a Los Angeles animal shelter. He was a little shy at first, but it became obvious to us that he loves people. He’s great with new people and loves everyone he meets, however, he finds small children a bit intimidating, so he would be a better fit for older families. I would recommend homes with no children under 12 years of age.
 
Jax also loves to take walks, but initially pulled on the leash, although he’s getting
better with training. It seems that he has not been socialized with other dogs, so he
needs someone who understands that for most of his life, he was the only dog in the family, so he finds it hard to share his space. When he sees another dog or hears another dog bark, he becomes anxious and will be excitable. A home with a secure yard with high fences would work best for Jax, although he prefers being indoors. Overall, Jax is a lovable and loyal dog. We’ve been working with him with different commands such as “come”, “sit”, “down”, “go” and most importantly, “no” to keep his mind stimulated. Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks!
Jax is house trained, neutered, current on his vaccination, and has a micro-chip.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

JAX (Courtesy List), a San Pedro 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 San Pedro, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in San Pedro.

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