Shea's Story...
**ADOPTION PENDING**
"SHEA" -- is a young spayed female that was given up due to resource guarding against the two year old child in the family, who the evaluator described as a "devil on wheels"--he was stealing her toys and kicking her. She is a shy girl that will need time and a lot of patience to bring out, but is doing wonderfully in her foster home, playing, eating, running. Now she displays the normal border collie caution around strangers, but after a few sniffs and woofs, she is fine. Gets along with other dogs well. She is a real sweetheart, and her foster mom's niece has taught her to sit and shake. She is a happy little girl and very affectionate if she is left to come to you first, and she is very clever. We will not place her with children due to her previous bad experiences with them. Shea has had all her shots.

You MUST first fill out an adoption application AND have a home visit BEFORE being considered for any NEBCR dog. As this process can take time, we recommend that you complete these first 2 steps BEFORE inquiring about a specific dog.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shea, a Stephentown 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 Stephentown, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Stephentown.

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