BAILEY's Story...
Bailey is exquisite! The elderly woman who had Bailey and her brother, Dandy, since they were pups, was unable or unwilling to spend time with them. Recently, she protested that she was unhappy with the "expense" of feeding them. A kind neighbor who had met the dogs and understood the situation was heartbroken at their isolation and was able to convince the woman that they would be much happier in another home. Thank goodness she did, because they are vibrant, intelligent fur kids with lots of energy and joy for life!

Bailey is smart, EXTREMELY eager to please, and is a quick learner. She is very responsive to any sort of correction, a short "TUT!" is all that's needed to redirect her. She is quick on her feet, even with a couple extra pounds due to the inactivity. She walks well on a leash, especially considering she has had little experience. She is good, even off leash, with smaller dogs. She very sweetly allowed an entire group of small dogs approach her, and they all touched noses etc. She loves to run around briskly, and has no problem standing on hind legs to peek in a window or find out what's on the patio table. Again, a tiny rebuke is all it takes to redirect her. She loves to be petted, and enjoys running around exploring. Independent enough not to be a wallflower, and open to and enjoys companionship of another dog. Her brother is significantly larger and stronger, and she has no trouble keeping up - even when he rushes in too close to her and biffs her around. HA.

At the dog park, she was happy to explore and meet people but we were there a long while and she did get a drink of water and sit down to rest, as did many dogs. Bailey has a playful, youthful spirit and I would never, ever guess her young age of eight years old from observing her! Any initial shyness is quickly overcome by her desire to connect and explore. She's engaging and easy going, and has plenty of verve.

Please enjoy her video with her sibling:

PLEASE NOTE: Bailey and Dandy do not have to be adopted out together.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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