LENA's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

LENA's Story...
Lena is one smart cookie. She has quickly settled into her foster, learning the rules of the house and how to get along with the other dogs. Her initial resource guarding has completely disappeared now that she knows there is always plenty of food for everyone, and she will happily enjoy her chew bone in the company of her canine companions. She is also learning a number of commands including “come,” “off” and “enough,” and her foster mom describes her house training as 100%. She has even learned to control her tongue that was previously described as a "weapon of mass destruction" by her foster mom.

Lena loves to go for walks and now that her foster mom is using a gentle leader, the experience is an enjoyable one for everyone. She also enjoys playing ball with either humans or other dogs. Her recall is good, but she definitely needs a fenced yard in which to run and burn off energy.

Lena loves attention and she knows how to get it. When there is some lovin' to be had, she is always the first dog in line, even if that means pushing a few of her fellow doggies out of the way. Her foster mom has even taught her the “no kisses” command to stop her from lavishing everyone she meets with a little too much love.

Lena is ready for her forever home and can't wait to find a family that is looking for a super smart, super loving, best friend. She would be a great candidate for obedience training, fly ball, agility or even a “scent” class (since she also knows how to use her nose). Lena is up for any challenge!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

LENA, a Minnetonka Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie for sale in Minnetonka, or seeking a Collie dog from a breeder in Minnetonka.

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