Lea's Story...
Lea is a lovely 9 year old female Aussie/Border Collie Mix. Lea still has lots of energy and bounce in her step. She definately needs to lose some weight, and her foster home will be working on that. So far Lea gets along great with every person and dog she has met. She has been in her foster home for a few days, and we will have more updates on Lea soon!

Here's an update from Lea's foster home!

Lea is a nice, "little", Aussie/Border Collie mix. She isn't really little, short (knee high), but definately over-weight. We've been doing our part to get her into tip top shape and looking good. She's a good sport and will go along with anything, even getting her nails trimmed if I don't give up during her constant pulling her paw away. She's settled right in, proving to be a social and happy dog with people. She had a bit of an issue with her foster sisters for the first three days, and let's not mention the cat, but now all dogs seem to have forgiven each other. Lea will play fetch a bit when the weather isn't hot, and likes to carry around a tennis ball just for fun. Sometimes she tosses it in the air and chases it a time or two on her own as well. I'm sure as she loses some of her excess weight, her energy will increase so that she can play longer. She has been trained, and stops on a dime at a serious "No!" (The cat is thankful for that). She barks once when she sees the Great Dane next door come outside, or sees a larger dog walking along the street. She usually limits it to just the one bark. She doesn't seem to care about people walking by themselves or small dogs. She's greeted all people who've come up to her with a wiggle butt howdy. We have not seen her with small children.

She is housetrained. I don't know if she was crate trained before, she gave us some struggles the first few days when we insisted she use one at our house. But now I point, and she walks in without a fuss. Yesterday, she even went in just on her own. She knows "sit, down, stay or wait, no, shake, bed,..." probably more, but with her weight we haven't tried much or needed to worry much either. Though we had some worries the first few days with her and the other dogs, they seem to have settled down. She is currently turning her head and pretending not to see our cat, but.... Otherwise, she doesn't have any obvious issues. She's a nice dog that needs to go on some regular walks.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lea, a Bellevue 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 Bellevue, or seeking a Australian Shepherd/Border Collie dog from a breeder in Bellevue.

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