Betsy's Story...
Meet Betsy. She is a sweet tempered, fun, affectionate, gentle, smart and eager to please Border Collie/Lab mix. Like most unaltered dogs in the south, she fell victim to being a young mom to a litter of puppies, all of which were adopted from the shelter. Betsy was rescued from the shelter in hopes that we could find her a FORever home to call her own. She is housetrained and crate-trained. She would do best in a home without cats or extremely small dogs because her collie instinct is to chase and herd them. She gets along beautifully with her foster dog siblings who range in weight from 35 lbs to over 100 lbs. Betsy is a great size (about 35 lbs) and at about 1 years old, she is most likely done growing. She is happy, healthy and ready to find her FORever home. If you are interested in adopting this sweet girl then please email us at forrescueal@gmail.com for an application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Betsy, a Foster 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 Foster, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Foster.

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