WILLIE's Story...
Meet Willie.  Willie is a 2 yr old black tri-color Australian Shepherd.  Willie was shelter bound and came so close when one of our volunteers intervened.  There are so many nice things to say about Willie.  He is sweet with a mellow temperament. 

Willie is well socialized and is great with other dogs.   He has been evaluated around children and is really with kids.  Willie is a fast learner and he is currently learning the basic obedience, as he came to us with no manners. He is now walking on a leash and knows his sit and wait commands.  He has not been evaluated with cats, so we are not sure how he does with them.
 
Willie loves the water and is such a water baby!  He also loves to run and play with other dogs. Willie is such a ham for attention!  He is happiest just being with you while you stroke his head.  He is probably housebroken but his foster home is working on that and he is coming along nicely.  Most likely Willie was kept outside most of his life before coming to us ,so he is getting the hang of how to behave inside.  Willie will make a great companion dog

If you are interested in meeting our dogs, please fill out an adoption application.  We require a pre-approved application to be on file before any meet and greets are scheduled.  The electronic application can be found on our website at http://www.bordercolliesinneed.org/border_collie_rescue_and_adoptions/adoption_application.html

Why Adoption is a Great Option

WILLIE, a San Pedro Australian Shepherd dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Shepherd for sale in San Pedro, or seeking a Australian Shepherd 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 Australian Shepherd breeders who help with Australian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Pedro paves the way for another one to be saved.
