Lily's Story...
Lily is a loving girl with plenty of puppy energy. Due to her rough start, she's a little cautious at first but is quick to warm...especially when given bits of her favorite training treats... hot dogs! Speaking of training, Lily is extremely smart and eager to please. She can be easily trained to do just about anything. She's also familiar with doggie doors and loves the freedom it gives her to chase birds, bugs, and go potty. Her favorite activities include the dog park, fetch, and tug of war. She tries to make friends with all of the humans and dogs at the dog park and does a pretty good job staying above the fray. Hikes are still a little stressful for her at the start so many people, animals, and smells so extra support and calm from her owner is in order. But she warms up to the hike and by the end she's enjoying the adventure. She will match the tempo of what you're doing and has been known to take her bone all around the house, watching while her owner cooks and cleans. Lily sleeps in her crate through the night and retreats to it during the day for comfort (aka when she has to have a dreaded bath). Maybe above all, Lily loves snuggles. She seems to like the comfort of being able to feel you while she chews her bone or dozes off. Smart, spunky, and sweet are the perfect words to sum up this pup.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lily, 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.
