Emmylou's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Emmylou's Story...
Sweet and gentle Emmylou came to us from the rural Avenal shelter. She is a very sweet, meek little girl who looks like a miniature border collie. She's very cute with lots of white on her chest, feet and tail. We think she may have been an indoor girl at some time, because dog beds and inside versus outside appear to be concepts she understands.
Emmylou is good with other dogs and is ok with cats, too.
We think she is about 12 years old and she's 24 lbs.
Now that she's finally receiving some TLC, Emmylou has perked up a bit. She's starting to gain weight and is getting more stable on her back legs. She's house trained and enjoys sunning herself.
Kind and gentle Emmylou waits ever so patiently for her forever family.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Emmylou, a Clayton 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 Clayton, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Clayton.

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