Elsa's Story...
Elsa was found wandering around a school in Saginaw, TX. She was wanting to play with the children at recess. One of our volunteers, who works at the school, was able to bring her home. She appears to do great with older children, and will be introduced to younger ones as well. We don't foresee there being any issues with her loving on children.

For Elsa, everything about being in the house was new. She was overwhelmed and scared, but she quickly learned that she liked other dogs and cats. She also loves cuddling with her foster mom, the other dogs, and her foster dad. She will try to play with the dogs a little, but she mostly enjoys cuddling and pacing the room or fenceline. As she has settled in more, she has opened up a bit on the energy scale, and could be considered medium energy. She would be a great companion to her humans, and would be fine as an only dog or in a multi-pet house.

She is extremely bright and learned to use the dog door within the first 24 hours in addition to learning to walk on a leash. She does well in her crate and the car. She appears to be completely potty trained since she takes herself outside through the dog door in order to take care of business.
She has chased the cat a little but only when the cat is running. She has been very gentle and sweet with the kitten even when the kitten attacks/claws her.

For Elsa, life was like a series of doors in her face until suddenly she ran into one of our volunteers. Can your love be the open door she's been searching for?
Elsa is estimated to be about a year and a half old. She weighs 45 lbs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Elsa, a Allen 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 Allen, or seeking a Border Collie 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 breeders who help with Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Allen paves the way for another one to be saved.
