Rosebud's Info...

Rosebud's Story...
You are NEVER going to believe this--The Giles County Humane Association has their hands on yet another Designer Pooch, and this little brown-eyed, redhead, is just what the doctor ordered to brighten up your holidays!

Meet Rosebud, a five month old, Borderpaloosa. For those unfamiliar with the rare breed—that’s a Border Collie/Catahoula mix, but we like to keep her description rockin’ and edgy…so Borderpaloosa, she is!

Rosebud is quite the charmer, full of puppy mischievousness and antics, she will entertain you for hours tackling imaginary objects or just chasing a leaf. She enjoys cats. Has been around farm animals, but has not had the desire to mingle…I mean, she is technically still a puppy. She still has a hint of that wonderful puppy breath. While it is difficult to determine the size that a Borderpaloosa dog will become, we estimate Rosebud will grow to about 35-40 lbs—if she lays off ice cream and bon-bons. She has adapted quickly to leash walking, and is extremely observant of her handler, even for such a young age! This is one smart snickerdoodle, and for the right owner, she is going to make someone, one heckuva partner!

Recently spayed, Rosebud is current on all shots and is heartworm negative. She does have a touch of demodex around her left eye which is currently being treated and is not contagious at all. It just leaves her with a temporary small patch of hair loss, however, it is growing back quickly! We like to say the bald spot is where all the angels are always kissing her little face, because she is that stinking sweet and cute!

Now…for the person out there reading this that is interested in giving Rosebud the family she so wants and deserves—this little girl has working breed blood coursing through her veins, so she is going to need a job to do; a ball to catch; kids to play with; trails to explore; cars to ride in—anything. She is going to need an active family that will understand and appreciate her beautiful genetics and make the most of them. She is not one that will be confined to a kennel, nor will she be allowed to roam without borders. Take her hiking, enroll her in agility--She needs structure and activity to make her shine, and in turn, you are going to get one amazingly loyal and intelligent dog!

Rosebud is available for meet and greets with a little planning, so if a beautiful redhead is just what you need, please contact the Giles County Humane Association at 931-363-5455, or find us on Facebook! We look forward to hearing from you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rosebud, a Pulaski Border Collie puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie for sale in Pulaski, or seeking a Border Collie puppy from a breeder in Pulaski.

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