Trey's Story...
Looking for loveable?? Well here he is -- meet Trey! This kind and gentle soul is sure to melt your heart…and if you are looking for a very sweet, very mellow, and cute as the dickens canine companion, Trey may be just up your alley.

Trey is one of those great rescue mysteries – what could his past have been? – if only he could tell us! Alas, we have no idea. All we know is that we have one unbelievably sweet and well-meaning Border Collie who, somewhere along his way, suffered some sort of trauma which resulted in amputation of his front left leg and the loss of some teeth in his left lower jaw. He landed in a northern CO shelter as a stray in December, came down with a severe case of kennel cough at the shelter, and was losing interest in life after several weeks at the shelter. WBCR was called in to help, and soon Trey was on his way to rescue. After only a couple weeks in his foster home, Trey is feeling much better and beginning to shine! He is a gorgeous rough coat classically marked purebred, and we think he’s about 3 years old.

This adorable, easy to please boy enjoys the company of familiar people and loves to just hang out with his humans. He is quick to attach - after just a few weeks in his foster home, he gives a little happy howl when he sees his foster mom! He’s a little reserved when meeting new people, but once he gets to know them, he loves any attention that comes his way from them. Trey is great with other dogs and good with cats, too. At this time, Trey shows no interest in toys or much herding instinct at all. He shows no interest in fetching or movement, even when other dogs are playing fetch. Instead, Trey just finds a place in the sun to rest and watch the activity. Will Trey ever run a marathon or go for a long hike? Probably not! He’s a lower energy fella who is content with a stroll around the block, tooling around the yard, and soaking up the sun on the deck. With each passing day he gets stronger and stronger but we don’t think he’ll ever be more than a mellow fellow. He is a low maintenance boy who demands nothing more than a warm place to lie down, and he makes for wonderfully agreeable, quiet company.

While we are still getting to know Trey, it doesn’t seem like he lived inside in his former life – but he is adjusting quickly and enjoys being indoors. He’s now cratetrained and housetrained and although he doesn’t seem to know many of the basics, he’s so easygoing this is hardly a problem! Trey is uncomfortable being leashed, but is improving on this front. Like any dog, learning some of the basics will surely help boost Trey’s confidence – he’s a bit of a tentative fellow – and an adopter willing to devote a little time and energy to teaching him a few skills would be great for Trey.

All is all, Trey is a gem! This special boy deserves nothing less than a very special family to call his own, who will shower him with the love and attention he deserves. He will be sure to return the affection tenfold!  If you are looking for a quiet and unassuming canine to be your constant companion, you would be hard pressed to find a better candidate than Trey.

Trey is neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped and living in a loving foster home near Fort Collins, CO.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Trey, a Denver 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 Denver, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Denver.

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