Lily's Story...
Introducing Lilly! Lily is 6-8 months old and weighs about 35 pounds. She has overcome more than any young dog should have to, but done it all with a smile on her face (no really, she smiles!). She is another of our young dogs rescued from a horrible situation in SD. The first day at her foster home, she ran outside and hid under the deck; it took a concerted effort of about 4 people and some coaxing to get her out. Fast forward one week and she has coined the phrase, the “Silly Lilly” dance. Our Silly Lilly will prance her way into your heart with her antics when dancing, her fascination with anything with stuffing and cuddling skills. She likes to keep a piece of everyone with her in her crate, so she has our daughter’s shoe, our son’s sock, mom’s water bottle and last night took off with dad’s shorts; she doesn’t chew up anything, just likes to keep tokens from her people near to her. She’ll need some patience yet as she is a little shy and timid, but the smiles she gives you will be worth it.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lily, a Minneapolis Australian Cattle Dog/Border Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Cattle Dog/Border Collie for sale in Minneapolis, or seeking a Australian Cattle Dog/Border Collie dog from a breeder in Minneapolis.

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