Baker is a beautiful dog with sweet temperament, friendly with human and animals. He is very well behaved, no barking or chewing issues. He's doing well in foster home, under training with good house manners and socializing with people and other pets. He gets along with any dog, and is good with cats too. He is friendly with strangers and children, not shy in stranger’s home. He is affectionate and cuddly with his foster mom. He is smart, learns everything quickly, he is obedient too. He already mastered basic commands, like 'sit, shake hands, down, stay, etc.' You will fall in love with him once you owned him. Please watch Bakers videos to know how sweet he is.

Rescue Story
Baker once had a home of his own, but when his owner moved to somewhere else, Baker was left behind alone in the house. The neighbor called animal shelter for help so he was caught into local shelter on Nov. 2nd 2015. Baker did not get adopted over a long period of time just because he was described as too shy.
We spent some time with this beautiful young pup while visiting the shelter and surprisingly found out that he is so loving and cuddly by nature. We decided to take him out of the shelter, because we knew he just need time to adapt to new environment. Baker did not disappoint us, he became sweet, cuddly, obedient and stable after only 3 days he arrived at the foster home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Baker, a San Mateo Collie/Keeshond dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie/Keeshond for sale in San Mateo, or seeking a Collie/Keeshond dog from a breeder in San Mateo.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in San Mateo 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 San Mateo 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 Collie/Keeshond breeders who help with Collie/Keeshond rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Mateo paves the way for another one to be saved.
