Hope's Story...
Hope is a gorgeous six year old red merle border collie. She was found in someone's yard in Oklahoma. A kind hearted soul took her in and discovered that she was not only heart worm positive, but also had a large benign tumor. Hope is a sweetheart who gets along well with others (dogs, humans, cats, children). Although she seems to love everyone, she can be initially shy and may have been abused in the past. If you move quickly near her or raise your voice, she sometimes ducks her head. Hope would do well in a home where she gets to be a companion for a human. Although she does like the companionship of a dog, she isn't much on active play. She is a very calm, low energy and affectionate girl. Hope enjoys sleeping mostly, and will follow her foster mom around the house to rest at her feet. Hope also enjoys giving kisses. Hope is house trained and currently uses a doggy door to let herself in and out as needed. She will not get on furniture, likely due to some arthritis. She is a bright, food motivated girl, and could easily learn other things in her new home. Hope is a great eater, even eats pills without any effort. Hope is listed as Coming Soon. She is undergoing a slow kill Heartworm treatment, and is still recovering from having the large tumor removed. Once she settles, and is fully recovered, she will be made Available for Adoption. If you would like to make a donation to help with Hope's medical expenses, please visit our Website at Donations may also be mailed to PO Box 682, Allen, TX 75013.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hope, a Allen 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 Allen, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Allen.

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