Desmond's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Desmond's Story...
Desmond is a gorgeous smooth collie from champion lines who was recently relinquised to SCR by an owner who could no longer keep him. He is a sweet, loving and loyal boy. He gets along well with other dogs and is generally outgoing and friendly. However, he can be protective of home and property with unfamiliar people (deliverymen, gardners etc...) and has a strong herding instinct, so will be evaluated soon by our trainer to address these concerns. He will need to find a home with an experienced and knowledgable collie family who can continue reinforcement of training he will receive prior to placement.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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