Gwennie's Story...
Hi from Texas! My name is Gwennie and I am looking for a home where it is cooler than Texas! I have lived here my whole life, about 2 years, and I am ready to go somewhere that I can hike all day and run and have fun. I am a survivor of some pretty bad stuff and had a surgery about 9 months ago, but I healed very well and now I am looking for a place that is safe and where I will be loved forever. I LOVE having my belly rubbed and will flip over at the first sign that you might be in the mood. I am pretty smart and I have learned to sit, lie down and shake hands. I am really pretty good on a leash and great with a harness. I love other dogs and went to my first dog park recently and had a blast. SOOO many new friends to make. I am okay with cats, especially "dog savvy" ones that give me a nose swipe when I get too close. I am crate and house trained. I look so slim because I must have some Whippet or other skinny dog in me, becasue I can eat and eat and still keep my figure (don't hate me!). I would love to have a home with an active couple. I am ready to pack my bags and head north, just say the word!! Love Gwennie

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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