Nelly's Story...
Nelly is a 4-year old Border Collie mix whose favorite activities include chasing tennis balls, affectionately licking, cuddling, and following commands. She is so incredibly smart and has a large repertoire of tricks that she enthusiastically performs for a treat or a pat on the head.

Nelly bonds very well with older children, adults, and even cats. Nelly is happiest in a setting with no small children under 7 years old and she would also prefer to be the only dog in the pack. She bonds so well with humans and needs some of that affection back; she can easily win over anyone's heart.

Nelly is housebroken, spayed, and up to date on all of her shots.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nelly, a Raritan 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 Raritan, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Raritan.

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