Collin's Story...
Collin is a 10 year old Retriever mix. When we first rescued Collin, he was suffering from a terrible mouth infection. The infection has been treated, but he did lose several teeth and is now on a soft kibble only diet. Collin has gained weight and his missing teeth don't seem to bother him. Collin also tested positive for heartworm and has been treated for that. This senior boy is extremely sweet and loves attention. He is good with other dogs and very gentle. Collin is a calm boy who loves to lay on his bed. Collin weighs about 50 pounds. Please help this handsome senior find the loving home he deserves.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Collin, a Sparta Labrador Retriever/Border Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Border Collie for sale in Sparta, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Border Collie dog from a breeder in Sparta.

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