Plato's Story...
Age (estimate): 2 years
Breed: Likely border collie - heeler mix
Weight: 26 pounds
Heartworm test: Negative
Meet Plato, a seriously cute dog. Plato has a heeler body with a slightly fluffy collie-ish coat – making him look like a perpetual puppy. Plato is very thoughtful and often serious in his expressions, hence, his name. However, he can get silly when playing with his people friends – we call him Playdough when that happens. Plato is good with other dogs and people and often wants to engage and play with them.. He is curious about cats, but is fairly respectful of them. He walks very nicely on a leash, knows sit, down, shake, turn and is learning to stay. He’s also learning to play fetch and loves playing tug of war with his foster dad. He is a great companion for walks and jogs. Plato is crate trained and knows how to use a dog door. He is doing well with house training and he’s about to graduate on that department (still supervised when loose in the house).

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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