Facts about Ripley"I'm Adopted"

  • Breed: Border Collie
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Ripley is Looking for a Home. He is a young neutered male Border Collie with lots of energy and toy drive. He is other dog friendly and loves to play. He is high energy and will need a person willing to take on the task of bringing Ripley into the realm of "Good Dogs". Ripley is showing no aggression with toys, food bowls, people or other dogs. He is fixated with cats as well as squirrels and although has not harmed one he uses his herding instincts to annoy them. So he would do better in a home without cats unless properly introduced and managed. He has not had a lot of experience around small children so this too would need to be properly addressed if young children were to be involved. According to his previous owner, Ripley is an escape artist and will need to be leashed and trained...as they all need to be. He will swim and enjoys playing ball in the water. Ripley is a smooth coat Black and White. Just Paws in the Ruff waiting to become the best friend you have ever known. If you are interested in Ripley please email ISBCR at Animaltalker1@juno.com and request a pre-adoption application on this fun loving character in fur.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Choosing a new Family Member takes time and we do not rush our adoption process. Our aim is to make the perfect match for a lifetime of percious memories. Scheduled Adoption Days and Meet and Greets are by appointment either week days or weekends here at Indian Summers Rescue. Please call or email to schedule your appointment to meet one of the Summers BC Gang...they are a Great Group of Rescues each looking for an equally great forever home. While here you can also meet the Summers BC Shelter Gang many of whom are living with cancer. When you say that word to a dog they just smile up at you and wag their tail. We don't tell them they are sick and they live each heartbeat to the fullest.

Our Adoption Process...

Our Adoption Fees vary according to a percentage of the medical expenses paid for that individual. Pre-Adoption applications via email are needed before scheduling your meet and greet. We request a reference letter from your Veternarian on business letterhead displaying address and phone number. All adopted animals are Spayed/Neutered and UTD on shots and treatments. Being a Border Collie Breed Rescue we do require some knowlege of the breed temperament, characteristics and needs. If you are new to the breed we do suggest that you research to make sure that this breed is right for you. For those others that have been blessed with sharing their life with a Border Collie, you already know the uniqueness of this breed.
