Willy's Story...
NOTE: This is a courtesy posting for another rescuer. Please do not contact ARRF, as we do not know this dog personally. Be sure to contact the foster or organization directly from the information listed below.

Willy is an approximately 5-yr old neutered, white with black Border Collie-Field Spaniel mix who weighs about 47 lbs. Willy is a happy-go-lucky dog who loves everyone. He likes both adults and kids, and loves to be petted and scratched. He walks well on a leash when wearing a Sensation harness, which he doesn't mind putting on at all.

Willy hasn't had a lot of training in the past, but he is very, very smart and caught on fast when a volunteer recently started training him. He loves being trained, and it gives him more confidence and relaxes him when he is learning new tasks. Willy has energy, but he is also able to calm down really well, and at a recent adoption event, he laid down next to his handler's chair and leaned in to her for affection most of the day, even though they were in a very busy area in front of a store.

Willy loves other dogs, but he can be a little overwhelming for some at first because he wants so badly to play. However, if Willy slowly gets to know another dog and is given a proper introduction, they quickly become friends.

Willy is in good health but could use a teeth cleaning. The ARRF rescue group will help financially for anyone who adopts Willy!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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