Sizzle's Info...

Sizzle's Story...
Meet Sizzle, a lovely little border collie cross who lives up to her name! She is 8 years old going on about 3, and she is full of beans. Sizzle loves to play ball - not fetch, exactly - by her own rules, run, wrestle and play. She takes a little while to warm up to new people, although she is pleasant to everyone, but she is your new best friend once she gets to know you. She is good with other dogs and cats, but she will try to be a cop dog if the playing gets too rowdy or someone steals her ball.

Sizzle has a little work to do on resource guarding and her instinct to herd everything, including the cats. She has occasionally gotten into stand-stand- offs with her foster sister; usually over attention from their foster mom. Sizzle would be fine with other pets with some work, and would do very well as an only dog. She is house trained but not crate trained, walks well on a leash, knows basic commands, and is very smart. She travels well in the car. She has had chronic ear infections throughout her life, and will need to have her ears cleaned weekly and watched closely. She is on a grain-free fish based diet right now, that we are trying to see if it helps with her ear problems. She will probably always need a special diet to keep the infections under control. She is spayed and her vaccinations are up to date.

Sizzle is a little spitfire of a dog who will make anyone a fantastic new family member. She can be very cuddly and loving, playful and energetic, and watchful and aware. Be that special person for this very special girl!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sizzle, a Saskatoon 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 Saskatoon, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Saskatoon.

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