Bella's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Bella's Story...
This is Bella, aptly named, as she is a most striking looking young purebred border collie. She has a short bobbed tail, but is definitely a b.c. and not an Australian Shepherd. She is very young, barely more than a puppy, and our vet estimates that she is about a year old. She has been vaccinated, heartworm tested and on preventative, and microchipped. She appears
to have been spayed before she was brought into rescue and our vet is certain that that is the case.

Bella is a very affectionate young dog who wants badly to be your friend and is fine with other dogs. She has a great deal of puppy playfulness about her, and loves to play with the 4 month old puppy in her foster home. She is not destructive and sleeps quietly in her pen at night.
She is very athletic and jumps up and down as if she was on springs, and we are working on stopping her for jumping up at people and grabbing their hands. This is not at all aggressive behavior, but rather puppy bad manners that have never been corrected.

She would do best in a border collie savvy home and is not suited for a family with young children. She needs to have plenty of activity, such as running with her new owner, agility, flyball, frisbee (she is just learning to play with balls and toys) and with a family who is prepared to continue with her socialization and training. Bella has a lot of potential and would love to have another dog as a companion.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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