Jake's Story...
Hi everyone, my name is Jake and I am an 11 year old male border collie with classic black and white markings. I had a rough first 11 years, being left out in the backyard. The only attention I got was when my old owner played ball with me. I love to play ball or fetch, I do not care what it is, if you throw it I will chase after it as fast as I can. I am also really good at jumping to catch toys. My foster dad cannot believe I am 11, he keeps telling me I am 11 going on 2.....I don't know what that means, all I know is I like to play ball. I am a little weary of new situations, but once I trust you I will be your best friend and will not want to ever leave the house. My foster dad is working on leash training with me, but the leash scares me because I do not want to leave my foster dad's house. I guess someday I will learn to like it because my foster dad keeps giving me treats when we go on short walks. I get along really well with his 3 border collies and I love all the visitors he has over to his house, just means more people to throw a ball or toy for me. I do love to cuddle up with my foster dad once it is bed time. Anyways, I cannot wait to have my own forever home......will you be the one to throw the ball for me and let me cuddle with you at night?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jake, a Tempe 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 Tempe, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Tempe.

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