Lonnie's Info...

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

Lonnie's Story...
Lonnie came into SCR from a family who could no longer keep her due to a divorce and move to an apartment with no yard. She is a very active, loving, and pretty sable collie. She came in with a lion cut and did need some plastic surgery with a specialist. She loves playing with her foster brother sheltie and follows her people all around the house. Living with a cat is also new to her--she's curious and inquisitive and does tend to chase. But she loves the house rabbit so should adapt to cats. 5/11 UPDATE - Surgery completed and one happy, painfree (surgery was necessary 2 years ago) collie girl jumped into the car and headed home. Now Lonnie is just anxiously waiting for her perfect adoptive family to call.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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