Junior's Info...

I am a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Junior's Story...
Junior's owners drove to a restaurant parking lot, opened the door and dumped him and another dog (see Buford's listing too) out and sped away. That is just wrong folks! The restaurant's owner took the dogs to a shelter.

Junior is a really good boy. He knows sit and is calm and well-behaved. Junior was born around August 2015 so is just a youngster. He weighs in at 46 lbs.

Junior is healthy but has a case of heartworms which we'll see him through. Heartworms aren't contagious, you and other animals will not contract heartworms from him. They're curable when caught early and show no outward symptoms except in advanced cases (coughing). Heartworms are caused by mosquitoes and are all too common here in the south but are completely preventable with an inexpensive monthly pill. Junior is taking a monthly pill (which we will pay for) until a blood test (which we'll also pay for) shows he's rid of them. This could take 6 months to over a year. We've had many happy adopters who've rescued a heartworm-positive dog. Speak to your vet if you need more feedback.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Junior, a Marietta 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 Marietta, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Marietta.

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