Comet's Story...
Comet is a very sweet boy. The rescue doesn't know much about him but what we do know, paints a very sad picture. He was found as a stray in Yavapai County. Being older and blind was probably the reason he was at the shelter for three weeks. He was so stressed out there, that he was chewing on the end of his tail, which has since healed. Comet is great with other dogs, and actually engages in play. Due to his blindness he is sensitive about anything or anyone in his face suddenly and with out speaking to him. For this reason only we do not recommend small children. Comet is quiet and calm most of the time and noises do not startle or bother him. But he does often react to other noises, especially from another dog with a woof. He may some trouble with loud thunderstorms, nothing a cuddle and some music can't cure. He likes playing with toys by himself and has a mild sense of resource guarding (pretty sure due to his vision deficit). He loves playing with his chew ball, he kicks it all over the place and chases it down. I took him to the ophthalmologist to see if anything could be done for his eyes but unfortunately there is not. The ophthalmologist diagnosed him with Progressive Retinal Atrophy. It is a genetic disease that starts shortly after birth. He adjusts readily to new environments.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Comet, 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.
