Ernie's Story...
E is for Ernie….But I think H is better letter to describe me….H is for handsome, just look at me! Not only am I good looking, but I have handsome personality to match. H is for Happy, because although I am Homeless I’m still friendly, sweet and playful as can be. H is also for Humble…I’m social and outgoing with both people and other dogs but I ain’t conceded or overly confident, a little sensitive in fact. H is for humor…I’m a fun and goofy with a great sense of humor. H is for Hopeful… hopefully you’ll hurry in here and give me a Home. 1 year old-64lbs. My adoption fee is $200 and includes; neuter, microchip, 1 month pet health insurance, free vet exam, reduced cost training class, leash/collar, toy & treat packet, food sample.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ernie, a Portland 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 Portland, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Portland.

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