Dakota's Story...
Sweet little Dakota is an ten month old fun-loving, wicked smart pup. She is 46 pounds and full grown. She is potty trained and doggie door trained. She knows sit, touch, and gives a high five. We're still working on stay and come, and she kinda thinks the leash means lay down and give you the belly. She has her moments of running around acting crazy, might bowl you over a little, but also isn't opposed to being a lounge lizard. She showed no interest in cats, but was not tested around one running loose. Dakota still has some puppy traits and does like to chew so best to make sure she has appropriate toys. She likes everyone including children, but might knock little ones over. She shares food, water and toys with joy, loves to lie on the bed, and snuggles with her people. Dakota lets me bathe her, clean her ears and teeth, and doesn't mind being brushed either. She is a very patient girl. Sometimes she is almost overly submissive which may be the result of abuse, but has shown tremendous progress. Dakota is valley fever positive and will require fluconizole (medication) twice a day for at least a year, per the vet. She will also need to have blood work done to check this periodically. Other than that she is super excited to meet and become a part of her forever loving home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dakota, 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.
