Angel - in Maine's Story...
Sweet Angel is a local surrender. She is 10 months old and 48 lbs. She originally came from a backyard breeder and was recently turned into a northern Maine shelter because she was nipping at heels and being a typical herding dog (can you imagine?). She appears to be a Border Collie/Australian Shepherd mix. She had a SAFER test and she passed with flying colors. The only thing she was hesitant on was when many people came in the room all at once. She tucked her tail, hid for a few moments and was wary but Angel did relax and the tail came up. She had no problems with people touching her, no issues over food or toys, and met other dogs nicely.

When she was at the shelter, a staff member took her home to give her a break from the shelter. She played well with the other dogs in the home but could be a little pushy about stealing toys. With attention, exercise, consistency and training for basic manners Angel will be an awesome family member.

Angel has not been exposed to cats but also didn’t show overly active prey drive when she was at the farm of the shelter volunteer; she hasn’t been exposed to children yet since being turned over to the shelter.

Angel is in foster care with us and though she was originally showing some possessive behavior over toys and food, (not at all with people but with other dogs), she is doing better every day learning to share and be a member of the pack. Continued training with Angel will be important.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Angel - in Maine, a kennebunkport Border Collie/Australian Shepherd dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie/Australian Shepherd for sale in kennebunkport, or seeking a Border Collie/Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in kennebunkport.

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