Ivan-Fostered near Minneapolis's Story...
This 8 month old boy is friendly, outgoing, happy, house trained and crate trained! He wants an active home where his people are not gone long hours. Ivan wants a fenced yard and someone to throw the ball for him. He loves having a canine buddy, but he is an exuberant player and would need a sister/brother that will keep him respectful. Ivan spent a few days with a dog savvy cat and did fine. Ivan came to us a few months ago with chemical burns. His foster family has helped him heal, body and spirit, and is now ready for his forever family.
This is what Ivan’s foster family says about him: His "leave it" is amazing. He is extremely smart, and is curious about everything! He plays fetch with a ball and likes to bring it back He is a spunky fellow, but will sit in our laps and gives kisses. He really likes to cuddle and be with his people. His eye contact is amazing. He knows to look at us before he can go with a command of OK. He is working on “wait”, and “down” to perfect it. He sits for his food to be placed. With his amazing eye contact, he will continue to learn quickly. An active family, that wants to continue his training, and wants a loyal loving dog, who loves to play...would be a great fit. We've been around a lot of dogs......he is remarkable. Ivan is looking for an active family who likes to play/walk/run/hike, he wants a fenced yard, kids 10+ could handle his puppy exuberance and he would benefit from obedience training. Ivan's vet said the skin on his back where he was burned looks great! He will need a covering on his back when he is out in the weather elements for long periods..so no sunburn, cold etc.
Iva is about 33 lbs and is about 20 inches at the shoulder.

Ivan’s adoption fee is $300 plus MN tax

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ivan-Fostered near Minneapolis, a Ada Collie/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie/Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Ada, or seeking a Collie/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Ada.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Ada 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 Ada 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 Collie/Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Collie/Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Ada paves the way for another one to be saved.
