Radar- adoption pending's Story...
Radar is a special needs border collie mix. He is around 7 years old and weighs 50 lbs. He has a gorgeous medium length coat. Radar is very sweet and affectionate and will melt into you for pets. He would LOVE to be able to sleep in bed with you. He does very well with cats and his best buddy is Frank, his feline foster brother, who is very affectionate with Radar. He has done well with other non-reactive dogs after a couple of days of transition. He is very leash reactive when he sees other dogs out on walks. Although he really enjoys walks he would do best with the option of a backyard while he works more on his leash manners. Radar loves to play tug of war and chase toys. He is pretty vocal when he plays and can be nippy, though he is pretty easily re-directed by giving him a toy to keep his mouth occupied. Radar has never shown any aggression with people but the nipping during playtime would be a hazard for small children. Although we do not recommend Radar live with kids, he may do just fine with well supervised visits with young relatives etc.

Radar cannot be crated because he has had seizures in the past. They are well controlled with medication currently. He has done just fine being gated in a mud room. After taking a couple of weeks to figure out a potty routine he does seem to be well potty trained now. He is a medium energy dog and does just fine with a couple of short walks a day, he is perfectly content to sleep with his cat friend for most of the day. He is extremely routine oriented and very food motivated and will do anything for a treat once he understands what you'd like him to do. Radar is missing one eye. He has a couple of other medical issues that are not significant problems for him right now but may end up needing to be addressed down the road. Radar is a very good boy looking for a big hearted family to call his own.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Radar- adoption pending, a Manhattan Border Collie/German Shepherd Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie/German Shepherd Dog for sale in Manhattan, or seeking a Border Collie/German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Manhattan.

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