Ness's Story...
"NESS" -- Something has traumatized this baby, but she does not shown any aggression when approached, even though she is very scared. She is slowly blossoming into a charming little character to those few people she trusts. Sweetness, sensitivity, intelligence and a great power of observation are all hers. She loves kisses, body massages, and especially ear rubs. Nessie shows interest in learning to swim. Her house breaking is going very well. She is really good with cats and children. She loves other friendly dogs, but we think she would be quicker to trust a new owner without other dogs in her household to depend on. Ness needs a patient, firm and loving person in a reasonably quiet, consistent home where she can continue to grow and be appreciated for the treasure she is developing into. Basic obedience will be a requirement for her adoption. She is not a high energy dog. Ness will be spayed before placement. She is being fostered in Connecticut.

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

Ness, 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.
