Pimiento's Story...
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!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pimiento, 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.
