Dixie's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Dixie's Story...
Meet darling Dixie! If you love a happy, friendly, super affectionate pup...Dixie is YOUR kinda gal! This beautiful 3 year old tricolor's tail is almost always wagging. Dixie's #1 favorite thing? People! Dixie soaks up attention like a sponge, and if she thinks she might get some from someone, she scoots closer..and closer...and then even closer...until....flop...she's rolled right over for a tummy rub, Dixie's #2 favorite thing! Yep, she's a people dog for sure! Although it takes Dixie a few minutes to warm up to strangers, once she realizes they might be attention-giving, she loves em! Of course, if they are possible ball-throwers she is also won over instantly. Yes, Dixie is indeed quite a fetchaholic, and to be really happy her life must involve some playing of fetch every day!! She is very good about dropping her toy by your feet, backing up, and looking at you with those 'come on, you know what to do' eyes. Although they don't quite hold the place in her heart humans do, Dixie is certainly good with other dogs
and likes their company, too. She's kinda playful with 1 other dog in her foster home, but she really prefers to herd her canine foster siblings when they play and nip their ankles. Because of her herdy-ness, Dixie will be placed in a home without cats or very small kids. She does really seem to like older kids over 10.

This sweet girl came to WBCR as an owner surrender, and has clearly been taught a few things already! She's housetrained and cratetrained, and has learned a few of the basics. Like most BCs, she's bright and will certainly benefit from adopters who will continue to teach her skills to keep her well-mannered and mentally active.

This fun-loving, glass-half-full kinda girl is going to make an absolutely devoted, loving companion. If you are looking for a super affectionate, people-oriented fetchaholic with a sweet disposition, look no further!! We've got a very cute one sitting right here, and she can't wait to meet you!

Dixie is fully vetted and lives in a loving foster home near Castle Rock, CO.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dixie, a Denver Border Collie/Australian Shepherd dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie/Australian Shepherd for sale in Denver, or seeking a Border Collie/Australian Shepherd 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/Australian Shepherd breeders who help with Border Collie/Australian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Denver paves the way for another one to be saved.
