I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Dorris is a 10 month old female smooth coated collie/greyhound/lab mix (best guess). Dorris came into a local shelter as a puppy with bite wounds all over her neck. Dorris was treated and put up for adoption and sat for almost 5 months awaiting her forever time. Unfortunately Dorris was passed up by adopters for the younger, cuter, puppies. After a fair amount of time Dorris developed some issues consistant with a puppy growing up in a kennel environment such as mouthing, leash reactivity, and barrier issues and was left with rescue as her only option. Dorris was brought to FIDO's Rescue and Rehabilitation where today people don't even recognize her as the same dog. Dorris is now a well socialized and well behaved girl. She receives consistent exercise and has gotten daily training since entering FIDO's program. Dorris is completely crate trained, and is now housebroken. She knows basic commands and is clicker trained. Dorris is currently working on loose leash walking and commands. Videos coming soon! Dorris is great with other dogs and tested OK with cats, although she does not currently live with any. Dorris will need an active home and is a perfect candidate for someone looking to do agility, obedience, or anything to keep her mind sharp! Dorris is spayed, UTD on shots, HW neg, chipped, and fully vetted.

Why Adoption is a Great Option
Doris, a Lancaster Collie/Greyhound puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie/Greyhound for sale in Lancaster, or seeking a Collie/Greyhound puppy from a breeder in Lancaster.
Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lancaster 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.
On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Lancaster 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
You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home.
In fact, there are even Collie/Greyhound breeders who
help with Collie/Greyhound rescue. One puppy or kitten
adopted in Lancaster paves the way for another one to be saved.
