JOCK's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

JOCK's Story...
Jock is a wonderful 5-year old purebred traditionally marked Border Collie (male). He came to us all tattered, matted and feeling lousy (upper respiratory infection - which took weeks for him to recover from) and a broken molar.
Six weeks later Mr. Jock is has completely recovered from his URI, has had dental surgery to remove his broken tooth, and has been beautified by the wonderful groomers at Petsmart (and was a crowd favorite with them and our volunteers last Sat.). Such a nice easy boy to have in the house. Lovely house manners, stays off furniture (will go where you ask him to, but doesn’t really like to be totally alone (will bark a little sometimes to rejoin you). He spends his current days outside with Mac at his foster home where they both are very good boys, staying out of trouble and only barking when they hear their foster momma’s car drive in the driveway at the end of the work day. When he rides in the car, he heads for the floor board and stays put the entire drive, often dozing off for a few zzzzs. He is wonderful with all humans, including children. Great with other dogs. Probably fine with cats. Sometimes he’ll “whine talk” a little, which is pretty cute. He likes to lay on the cool floor, but thinks blankets are kinda nice too. Walks perfectly on leash. LOVES treats (watch out for your fingers!). Great for the first time Border Collie owner, a home with children, or older folks. Jock is currently being fostered in Torrance, California and is ready for immediate adoption.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

JOCK, a San Pedro 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 San Pedro, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in San Pedro.

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