Katara's Story...
Meet Katara, a pretty 3 year old Border Collie mix looking for an active home that appreciates the smarts that come with the breed. Katara is a loyal girl and develops a definite bond with her person or family. She loves to learn and loves to please. As is usual for the breed, she will watch for cues from her person and is ready for adventure. Katara already knows a lot. She knows sit, down, up, and some. She also knows how to shake hands. She is also an active girl who enjoys going places. She is polite in the car and can’t wait to go. She loves a good walk, would love to jog or hike, but does pull a bit on the leash.
Katara is polite in the house. She is house trained and knows to go outside to do her business. She puts up with a bath without a fuss. She likes to be brushed. She is slightly growly, meaning that she will tell you when she isn’t happy, but doesn’t show any interest in biting. She is just vocal like others of her breed. Katara is a good girl with other dogs who aren’t bossy. She does like to nip while playing, so another dog would need to be okay with that. Also, due to that standard Border Collie tendency, she isn’t appropriate for young kids.When she first came to rescue, she had a minor seizure. After a doctor’s visit showed nothing wrong, and since she has had no other seizures, we think it was low blood sugar. However, we continue to monitor her and her new home should do the same. Katara is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on shots. She is ready for a new home in Southern CA.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Katara, a Hawthorne 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 Hawthorne, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Hawthorne.

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