Buddy's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Buddy's Story... -- Hi! My name is Buddy. I showed up on my foster family’s doorstep a few weeks ago scared and shaking. They pet me and took care of me and now I am just a mellow dog who loves to be petted, walked and loved. I wish I could stay with my foster family, but they have 2 other dogs, a cat, hamsters, fish, a human boy and a human baby on the way.

My foster family took me to the Vet for shots (ouch!) and we learned that I weigh 45 pounds and am approximately 1 year old. I am a little thin for my frame and I like to have my food left out all day to eat at my leisure. This can be tough with 2 other dogs in the house but we are doing our best! My foster mom thinks I am a Border Collie mix based on pictures she has seen. Whatever I am, I am super sweet and not at all aggressive, even when the other dogs are taunting me. I do have a deceptively deep bark though to scare off any bad guys if you are looking for a watch dog. I also do well with the cat.

My foster family thinks I am just great because I don’t chew up things, I am house broken (they also taught me to use a doggie door), I get along well with children and other dogs, walk great on a leash and am overall just loveable. I don’t jump up on furniture, but don’t mind joining you on the couch by invitation! Although I have never tried to attack the foster family cat, I do tend to chase her around for fun when she is around, so keep that in mind if you have cats.

Please complete an adoption interest form and email it to if you are interested in meeting me.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Buddy, a Gilbert 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 Gilbert, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Gilbert.

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