Pimento has led a full life when AZBCR got him. His loving disposition makes him quiet and gentle. During his stay with our pack and family, he has always sought out loving attention from everyone. He’s gone out with us on our trips to Starbucks, sitting or laying quietly as we enjoy our coffee, and greeting everyone who passed by with affection. He knows sit, kennel and just call his name, ask him to come and he happily hops up to trot over to you. Pimento is a low drive fellow and is very happy simply relaxing on the rug or his bed. He is looking for a nice quiet family with or without other dogs to take him on short walks and let him sniff the neighborhood. Completely house trained, he will let you know when it’s time to go out (we don’t have a doggie door). He may not be good with cats, since his first owners noted it on the relinquish paperwork. AZBCR has x-rays of his spine showing some fused vertebrae and cupping, which may be due to a past trauma. He is a bit wobbly at times and can be knocked over easily if bumped. He gets along great and even tries to jump into the vehicles on his own, but we pick him up to help. He is currently on Adequan for his arthritis, which has helped him A LOT and he will most likely need to stay on that. Recovered from his hernia surgery, Pimento is ready to find his furever home!
The purpose and main function of Arizona Border Collie Rescue (ABCR) is to promote humane treatment through rescue, rehabilitation, education and the re-homing of neglected, abandoned and unwanted border collies.
Our Adoption Process...
We have a 4-step adoption process to make sure you find the right dog for your family. First you fill out an application, and then you will have a phone interview to find out just what type of dog you are looking for and if you are familiar with the breed. Next you will be scheduled for a home visit to better assess your needs and the appropriate activity level and age of a potential dog adoption. Last but most important you will be scheduled to meet the Border Collies that would suit you and your family the best for a long happy life together.
