Gracie's Story...
Are you looking for a dog who can keep up with you on your run (mountain bike ride or hike) as well as snuggle with you on the couch afterwards? If so, Grace (aka: Gracie Lou) is your girl! Gracie is a beautiful 1-2 yr old female tri-color border collie. She is as smart as she is beautiful. In just over a week she was house-broken, crate-trained and well on her way to mastering basic obedience commands (e.g., sit, stay, come). She walks well on a leash (if you can walk fast!) and can run for miles (she runs 5 miles daily with her foster mom and has even completed an 8 miler, no problem!). She is the proverbial Velcro dog. The only thing Gracie loves more than exercise is hanging with “her person” (the closer the better). She is content to sit at your feet while you work at the computer or sit by your side while you watch your favorite TV show (she’s partial to Glee and Grey’s Anatomy!). When she finally does get tired, she will cuddle up close and snore softly in your ear. While Gracie will sleep in a doggie bed or crate without fuss; she would prefer to be snuggled down at your feet on your bed. Typical of her breed she can be a bit bossy and herdy with other dogs (particularly those that threaten her “authority” or attempt to steal away the “control” she desires). She is also a bit shy with strangers and unsure of strange/new situations as well as strange/new dogs. Her foster mom is working on her “social skills” and trust issues and has already seen some promising progress.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gracie, a Salt Lake City Border Collie puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie for sale in Salt Lake City, or seeking a Border Collie puppy from a breeder in Salt Lake City.

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