JACK's Info...

JACK's Story...
Jack is an approximately 3 year old border collie mix. After spending 8 months in a rural Oregon shelter, he was rescued by a kind person who saw that he was shutting down there. After many months of rehab, needed medical care and good food, Jack is now ready for adoption.

This is a good natured, happy dog who will make a fine companion for some lucky family. He is good with children, but may be too rambunctious for the little ones and might knock them over...then lick them! Jack is a moderate energy dog and is happy to follow you around while you do chores, help run errands, or just go for walk.

Jack is okay with most other dogs and is even pretty good with the cat in his foster home. He would probably be fine with a dog savy cat that doesn't run from him. He has been around horses, too!

Jack is housetrained and is very good about using the dog door when he needs to go outside. His foster mom feels he has not been treated kindly in the past so responds best to positive training methods. He likes to ride in the car and is very well behaved when his foster family takes him places.

Jack will use a crate if asked, but it's not one of his favorite places. Nevertheless, he accepts it. Regarding baths, he is not a fan, so right now it's a two man job.

When Jack was rescued from the rural shelter where he had spent almost one year he was severely emaciated. He had a tapeworm. A big tapeworm. His foster family took care of that right away, but unfortunately Jack is now a little chubby. Jack also appeared to be having some issues with his skin when coming into foster care, but now he is being fed a grain free food from Costco and doing well on it. It would be best if he stays on the grain free food.

Jack's adoption fee is $150 and includes neuter, vaccinations and microchip.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

JACK, a Nampa 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 Nampa, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Nampa.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Nampa 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 Nampa 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 Nampa paves the way for another one to be saved.
