Shelby's Info...

Shelby's Story...
The don't get much cuter than this!! These babies will be available to be transported to their new homes on January 7th. They were born on September 19th. At the time of adoption, they will have received 3 sets of distemper/parvo vaccines, bordetella,  rabies, and be microchipped. Their adoption fee is $300 with a transport fee of $145. Their breed mix is unknown,  but we do know that the mother weighs approximately 35 pounds and the dad was around 65 pounds, so we suspect thay they will be around 40-50 pounds when full grown. As of the middle of November,  they each weigh about 5 pounds. These puppies have a great temperament and energy level. They have all been well socialized with dogs of all sizes and cats as well. They are all doing excellent on their crate, potty pad, and house training. We will be seeking homes where they will be a part of their families daily lives and be treated as a valuable part of the family. They are all currently being fostered in Tennessee,  but we have tranport stops for adopters to meet us at in VA, MD, PA, NJ, and CT. Our adoption process includes an application,  phone interview,  home visit, as well as personal and vet reference checks. If you are interest in applying to adopt on of these little nuggets, please email us at We normally try to get with applicants within 72 hours of applying,  however we do ask for a bit longer on these guys as we sometimes get overwhelmed with applications on young puppies. We want to make sure and find the best homes for them and also make sure that you get the puppy that best suits you.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shelby, a Washington DC Brittany/Border Collie puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Brittany/Border Collie for sale in Washington DC, or seeking a Brittany/Border Collie puppy from a breeder in Washington DC.

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