Sparky's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Sparky's Story...
Sparky, was a working farm dog who had an amputation after breaking a hind leg. He is 5 years old, UTD on shot's, nuetered and microchipped. He has not let being a tripod slow him down. He is a high energy guy who LOVES his tennis ball, and riding in the car. Sparky has a tendency to chew so having many options will be important. Breed experience and a home that can provide both physical And mental stimulation will be required for adoption.

He walks (and runs) easily on sidewalk, grass and carpet. He is still working on being able to walk on smooth surfaces like tile and garage floors.

He has lived easily with my dog without problems, however he really doesn't seem to need her companionship. He LOVES his person though. He loves attention, giving kisses and playing fetch. Did I mention that he LOVES his tennis ball.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sparky, a Salem 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 Salem, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Salem.

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