Abbott's Info...

I am already neutered and up to date with shots.

Abbott's Story...
Abbott is a one-year old, 50-pound Labrador Retriever/Border Collie mix neutered male. He is very intelligent and learns new behaviors very fast. He is quiet indoors and playful with his frisky foster siblings outdoors. He likes the beach, PBS NewsHour, and tender green grass. He LOVES squeaky toys and afternoon naps.

Abbott has progressed by leaps and bounds since moving to a foster home on October 5th. He had lived at the Humane Society of Eastern Carolina since he and his brother were rescued as strays when they were 12-week old puppies.

Abbott would rather have attention than treats. He will thrive in a home with one or two mannerly dogs who would appreciate (or be tolerant of) his active puppy play style. He is still a little mouthy (like retrievers and collies), but does not bite or behave aggressively.

If you are looking for a smart, beautiful, low-maintenance pet companion who will gladly listen to your stories, make arrangements to meet Abbott today. He is currently in a foster home, so please contact the Humane Society at 252-413-7247 or via email at hsec@embarqmail.com to schedule a time to meet Abbott.

All dogs at the Humane Society of Eastern Carolina are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, dewormed, and on heartworm and flea prevention. All dogs 6 months or older are tested for heartworms. Adoptions come with a small bag of Hill's Science Diet food and a free one month trial of pet health insurance.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Abbott, a Greenville Retriever (Unknown Type)/Border Collie puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Retriever (Unknown Type)/Border Collie for sale in Greenville, or seeking a Retriever (Unknown Type)/Border Collie puppy from a breeder in Greenville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Greenville 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 Greenville 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 Retriever (Unknown Type)/Border Collie breeders who help with Retriever (Unknown Type)/Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Greenville paves the way for another one to be saved.
