Lupine's Story...
Lupine is a beautiful, sweet girl whose Border Collie traits are significantly pronounced. Consequently, she will need a home with guardians who are familiar with the breed and who are able to offer her the exercise and mental stimulation necessary to keep a Border Collie mentally and physically healthy. Long hikes on trails and agility training are two options that many successful Border Collie guardians provide for their dogs. Lupine is a classic herder, and as a result will chase runners, bikers, skateboarders, and cars-- basically anything moving fast. She should not be placed in a home with children, as they are likely to engage in activities that may provoke a herding response. Many people covet Border Collies for their keen intelligence and classic good looks; however, a prospective adopter should have a lifestyle that would enable him or her to provide Lupine with what she needs to succeed as a good canine citizen and as an integrated, active member of the household.

Act quickly to adopt Lupine. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lupine, a Berkeley 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 Berkeley, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Berkeley.

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