Oreo's Story...
OREO- Male, Border Collie mix, 3 yrs, 37 lbs.

Update from Oreo's foster mom: "What can I say about Oreo? Well, he's as sweet as the cookie he's named after and he's smart like one too! Oreo still has a little bit of puppy in him and needs someone patient who will take the time to help him brush up on his manners, but he's catching on very quickly that human toes are not for nibbling and that you get more belly rubs when you're polite than you do when you jump up. For that reason, a home without children would be best. Luckily, Oreo comes equipped with a few basic commands under his belt, like "sit", he's very food motivated (which makes him super trainable), and he already knows how to walk like a gentleman on a leash. He is housetrained and crate trained and an absolute joy to be around. He gets along wonderfully with his smaller, but very bossy, foster sister and hasn't shown any signs of resource guarding. Touch his food or take his toys away? Oreo doesn't mind - nothing can wipe the smile off this happy boy's face now that he's made it to Canada! Oreo would make any family very lucky, but he'd especially love a furever home with someone who shares his two main interests: long evenings spent cuddling on the couch and wet sloppy kisses (either giving or receiving... Oreo's pretty easygoing that way)!"

Meet Oreo!! He appears to be a border collie mix. Oreo was originally named Zero but we thought that was kind of sad, and he has the colours of an Oreo cookie, so we changed it! Oreo had a family but the child was a bit too rough with him and he ended up at the shelter after he nipped at the child. For that reason, we suggest no children for Oreo. He lived with another dog and many cats. Oreo would love nothing more than to find a new family to call his own!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Oreo, a St. Catharines Border Collie/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie/Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in St. Catharines, or seeking a Border Collie/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in St. Catharines.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in St. Catharines 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 St. Catharines 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/Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Border Collie/Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in St. Catharines paves the way for another one to be saved.
