DescriptionBorder Collie / Husky / Mixed "long coat"
Border Collie mix, n/m, 6 yrs. young. Very quiet & has low to moderate energy.
Charlie was an owner surrender to a county animal control by his elderly owners. Apparently they traveled a lot, & somehow could not manage it with him. They said that he was also too much for them to handle. Charlie was then adopted into a family w/a very young toddler, that lasted about a week & he was returned again.
Charlie is now in our care & is virtually almost always found with a ball or toy in his mouth. He ignores his fosters cats and gets along with her dog. He loves to play fetch, knows some basic obedience (He needs a refresher on leash manners.), is housebroken & is a great companion on any road trip!
Charlie is very quiet & has low to moderate energy. He is a bit over weight so we have him on a diet. He needs a dedicated human to work with him on his leash work and keep him on a diet, Someone strong enough not to get knocked over by him would be best.
This lovable goof ball will make anyone smile. He has the Border Collie “eye/stare”, and thinks he’s the best herder of the bunch, that in itself to watch will make you smile too.
Adoption Fee Details
Adoption fee $150.00 We require an adoption application, a home check and have an adoption contract if the adoption is approved.
The adoption fees you pay help us defray costs we incur when pulling dogs from shelters. We are charged by the shelters the same as you would be charged. The others costs we incur include spay & neuter fees and other miscellaneous medical expenses. We must also pay for the cost of advertising the dogs in order to find new homes, transporting animals, phone bills in responding to potential adopters (many of which are long distance calls), and food and supplements for the dogs.
All of the money you donate is used toward dog rescue. Our volunteers receive no pay. Usually, the amount requested for a particular dog does not even cover the cost of having rescued that dog.
