Banjo's Story...
Howdy! My name is Banjo, and I'm new to the Rescue. I think I liven this place up a little. I'm super handsome and super fun. I get to wear this kicky red bandanna around, which is pretty darn cool because none of the other dogs have a bandanna. Guess I'm just special. :) I'm a Border Collie mix and barely a year old. I have all of my shots, but I haven't been neutered yet. Which sounds awful. Can't believe they're making me go to the vet for that. Anyway, I have an interesting story. I was out one day, minding my own business, when I saw a man walking his dog. That sure looked like a lot of fun, so I crashed their walk. We had a blast playing together, but then the man took me into a shelter in Marsing and said I was a stray. I prefer to think of myself as a free spirit. But whatever. I stayed in Marsing for a bit, then headed over here. My foster mom, Lori, is the nicest lady ever. I loved living with her and her dogs. Lori likes me, too. Here's what she has to say: "I have really enjoyed fostering this one year old male Border Collie Banjo. He is a really sweet boy with energy to spare. He loves to play chase and wrestle with my bigger dog. But in true Border Collie fashion loves to herd the smaller ones. He loves to be close to his people. If you want someone who worships the ground you walk on this is the dog for you. He enjoys cuddles and gives kisses freely. He is kennel trained and has learned to use the dog door to go out to potty most of the time. He would do best with an active family or an active bigger dog to keep him entertained and exercised. He loves to play with toys but is still leaning the difference between toys, shoes, sunglasses, etc. He is super smart and will catch on to this quickly. Chewing on a nylon bone is great fun. He is learning the command’s off and sit. With a lot of love, patience and some training Banjo will be a great addition to your family." I agree. I would be a *great* addition to your family. Want to come take me home?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Banjo, a Meridian 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 Meridian, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Meridian.

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