General information

Baron is smart and brave, and loves to explore new things. He pees and poos at outside. He can easily adapt to any new environment or people. He loves to eat, and everything is OK when food is present. Because of his love of food, he has a tendency to gobble up his meal, and then eyeing others' food. Therefore if you have other dogs in the family, it is best to separate their feeding place. Baron is also very loyal, and would protect his owner and family with all he got. He would be a wonderful addition to your life.

Baron's Rescue Story

One day, one of our volunteer walked her dog after work along the beach. Since it was a really nice day, the walk lasted longer than usual, and she went to a seldom visited gazebo to take a brief rest. There she met Stacy with a plastic bag hanging around her neck, wanting to play with her dog. While the volunteer was patting Stacy, Baron appeared from the gazebo and the two started playing happily with her. Because of something she needed to take care of, our volunteer had to leave with her dog, thinking that since this was a very secluded place, the dogs should be safe here. Several hours later when she was finished with her business, and still thinking about the dogs, she brought some food with her and went back to the gazebo. Upon arriving, she saw a bunch of people starting a bonfire, and Stacy and Baron were being held by them. Fearing that they might hurt the dogs, she claimed that they were her dogs, and brought them back home with her, intending to find them a permanent home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Baron, a San Mateo Collie/Bernese Mountain Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie/Bernese Mountain Dog for sale in San Mateo, or seeking a Collie/Bernese Mountain Dog dog from a breeder in San Mateo.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in San Mateo 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 San Mateo 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/Bernese Mountain Dog breeders who help with Collie/Bernese Mountain Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Mateo paves the way for another one to be saved.
