PATRIOT's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

PATRIOT's Story...
pants and collar. His tail is docked as is the favor of the cattle ranchers. He has one blue eye and the other amber, hence his name...red, white, and blue.

Pat is so typical of the teenage males. He is silly and will fall over himself to please. BCs at this age are like clay, ready and willing to be molded to just about anything their handlers ask of them. We really adore this age, seeing the wonderful potential in each of these lovely souls. Along with this goes lack of confidence. Such an easy thing to build, yet it does take a loving and patient hand. Short obedience drills a couple of times a day can work magic. All these youngsters need is to know they are right and their confidence will start to soar. The bond formed during this time can be beyond description. They are so incredibly appreciative and can become an extension of you if you allow them to.

Pat is just clearing quarantine, so our information is limited. So far he is low to medium in energy level, getting along very well with his foster siblings. A bit cautious to warm up but once he does, he is a cuddler and wiggles with happiness. He doesn't like to crate but rode well loose in the cab of the truck. Check back for updates if this handsome fellow is around long enough for us to do so.

Fair warning; reds are very coveted and rarely last in rescue more than a minute. Especially those as nice a this young male!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

PATRIOT, a San Pedro 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 San Pedro, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in San Pedro.

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