Mandella's Story...
N/M, 1.5 years, Border collie/newfoundland mix, 50 lbs

Hi! I am an outgoing, 1.5-year-old Border collie/Newfoundland mix. As
you can tell from my photo I am Border collie in size. I was found
chained up and abandoned in a dark, empty house when it was being
checked out before being sold. Fortunately a couple of kind people
brought me to MaxFund to look for a forever home.

I am very friendly and I like women and teenage girls very much. Men
are OK as casual acquaintances and I have made several friends among
the male volunteers here. However, I would probably live most happily
in a household that is all-women most of the time. I have little
experience with young kids but I tend to want to herd them (it’s my
Border collie heritage!) and so older kids or teenagers would be
better as permanent members of my family. Generally, I am OK with
other dogs as long as they give me my space but I don’t appreciate it
when they want to be too familiar. I have no experience with cats.

I love going for walks and enjoy all types of playtime. Toys are fun,
especially soft ones. I think car rides are OK now and I am sure I
will get to like them – looking out and seeing new things is really
interesting. My family will have to be patient with me as I get used
to new situations. For example, dark places and water spray (like from
water bottles) are scary. However, I am proud to report that once I
get introduced to new experiences I am a real trooper. I was a
male-dog model at the recent “Unleashed Fashion Show” and I was told I
did very well and looked very smart in my chic shirt and tie. I
exhibited great patience as I was primped, brushed, and outfits were
taken on and off. However, please don’t think that means that I have
any intention of following a modeling career – I am a dog-of-action
Border Collie!

I love meeting people so please stop by the shelter to say “hello” and
take me for a walk. Remember to ask for Mandella!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mandella, a Denver Border Collie/Newfoundland dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie/Newfoundland for sale in Denver, or seeking a Border Collie/Newfoundland dog from a breeder in Denver.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Denver 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 Denver 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/Newfoundland breeders who help with Border Collie/Newfoundland rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Denver paves the way for another one to be saved.
