Charlie's Story...
Meet Charlie, an adorable 10 month old, 40 pound border collie mix. Charlie loves everyone, young to old, and is a very playful and friendly boy who's always eager to play fetch. He's also very affectionate and loves to snuggle. He knows basic obedience and is housebroken. Charlie is also dog friendly, but will snarl a bit when another dog comes around while he's eating or playing with his toy. Charlie is up to date on vaccinations (as of 4/12), neutered, HW negative and on monthly HW prevention. Charlie's owners are rehoming him because they just don't have the time that Charlie so desperately needs. Being part border collie, he needs an active family to give him love and attention. Charlie is still a pup and part border collie so is very smart and should learn doggie manners very easily. Are you that special person Charlie needs to help him become the awesome boy we know he can be? Rehome Fee: $80.00. Call Positive Alternatives to Shelter Surrender at 225-366-7277 or email us at We are an all volunteer program. We will reply as quickly as possible.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Charlie, a Baton Rouge Border Collie/Australian Shepherd dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie/Australian Shepherd for sale in Baton Rouge, or seeking a Border Collie/Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Baton Rouge.

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