Tux is 5yrs young and the most wonderful dog you can meet. He has the calmest demeanor and is very well behaved. He gets along beautifully with everyone---be they two- or 4-legged! He loves to play with other dogs, but is also happy just to hang out with you. He is a dog that just goes with the flow of things. He loves his people and once he bonds to you, he is bonded for life. This was painfully illustrated when his family abandoned him in the country side--he kept going back to the exact spot where his family had left him. : ( He was brought to a shelter in eastern WA and is now in a wonderful foster home. Tux is a big time cuddler, quiet, mellow and a lover boy. Feel free to inquire for an application for this sweetie. By the way the photos are before he was groomed, he is a drop dead gorgeous boy and just beautiful!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tux, a Seattle Border Collie/Australian Shepherd dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie/Australian Shepherd for sale in Seattle, or seeking a Border Collie/Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Seattle.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Seattle 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 Seattle 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/Australian Shepherd breeders who help with Border Collie/Australian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Seattle paves the way for another one to be saved.
