Sun's Story...
A note from Suns current family:

"Sun is a one year old mixed mutt. Her birthday is April 26th! She's got the basics of potty training and simple commands down, but she is still a puppy who may need a little more training depending on what her new family wants to teach her. She is a dog who needs to go to an owner(s) who are active and love to get outside. She loves to hike and climb rocks and she can be off leash in the outdoors! She may roam a bit but she will always come back to you especially once that love and trust is established! She's a very loyal dog. She was well socialized as a puppy, She is ridiculously smart, I think it's possible she has some border collie or something in her because she learns so fast and also is still in the phase of seeing what she can get away with sometimes but ultimately she has so much unlimited potential. She's amazing. Everyone who knows her or who has known her in my circle of friends, family, etc LOVES her. There is something very special about Sun that you will not find in another dog. I wish I was in a more stable position in my life or had the help of a partner to help me care for her because if I wasn't moving around and still in school, etc, I would definitely keep her. As much as she is a ball of energy and can be rowdy, on the opposite side of the spectrum she can also spend much of her day napping and cuddling along side you. On another note, she loves to play with other dogs and I have taken her to the dog park quite a bit in my time of having her along with her making friends with dogs in the neighborhood. She can get rowdy while playing sometimes but she has boundaries and is not an aggressive dog that seeks to cause trouble in any way. I don't see anything wrong with placing her in a home with another dog as long as they can play well together - Sun still has a lot of that puppy energy. She can be possessive of food so if she was placed in a home with another dog, I wouldn't feed them at the same time or in the same area. It's possible she could have been the runt of her litter and still feels the need to protect her resources. She is also still young so it's possible she could be conditioned to no longer have that issue. Overall, she's amazing and I know a few of my friends who would take her if they were at a time in their lives where they would be able to care for a dog but Sun deserves a stable home environment with a yard to run around in and owners who like to get her out of the house and take her on plenty of walks and hikes! She's the perfect Colorado dog. One thing I can promise you is that everyone who gets the chance to meet her will say, "I've never seen a dog like that before! What is she?! She's so beautiful/adorable/cute/different looking!" My answer is usually, "She's a total mystery!"

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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