Justin's Info...

Justin's Story...

Justin is a handsome tricolor (black, white and tan) medium sized, middle-aged (4 to 6 years old) border collie. When he was first rescued, he was shaved because his coat was in such bad shape. As his fur grows back, it appears that he will have soft wavy hair with a beautiful mostly white tail.

Justin is an exceedingly mellow fellow who enjoys lounging on pillows. He loves human contact and gently uses his paw as if to .shake. or nudges your hand with his head in order to encourage you to pet him. Due to his easy-going temperament, Justin would be fine as a house or apartment dog with a moderate amount of exercise. Justin shows no herding instincts so he may be a fine dog for many different family types, including those with children and other pets. However, he would not do well in a household with one or more dominant dogs as he may be picked upon. He does not appear to be noise sensitive and we have never heard him bark.

Justin has been neutered, vaccinated and is heartworm negative. He knows a few obedience commands, including sit, and enjoys walking on a leash.

If you are looking for an easy going, low maintenance friend, Justin may be the dog for you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Justin, 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.
