Sparky's Story...
We think Sparky has had a difficult life so we are glad to try and help him. His one ear is missing and we think he may have lost it in a fight. He also gets excited around food like he needs to grab it quick because either he has experienced hunger or others took his food from him. So he should be feed in a quiet place by himself and should not be around people when they are eating as he tries to grab any food he sees. We think with some training and TLC Sparky can lead a nice life. He is around three years old. The person that found him reports he is okay with children and friendly to other dogs but not if they would try and take his food. Is there a person out there that is willing to help Sparky?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sparky, a Somerset 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 Somerset, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Somerset.

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