Boots loves to be with people and she is also good with other dogs and children. Cats are an unknown. She isn't fond of car rides and tends to get carsick.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Boots, a Belleville Norwegian Elkhound/Border Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Norwegian Elkhound/Border Collie for sale in Belleville, or seeking a Norwegian Elkhound/Border Collie dog from a breeder in Belleville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Belleville 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 Belleville 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 Norwegian Elkhound/Border Collie breeders who help with Norwegian Elkhound/Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Belleville paves the way for another one to be saved.
