Benefits of Rescuing a Border Collie
Adopting a Border Collie can often help you save money in upfront costs as Border Collie puppies can be more expensive than adoption fees.
When you adopt an older dog, you are also potentially adopting a dog that is already trained, however, that is not always the case. You will need to speak to your rescue to see what level of training the dog you are adopting currently has!

About the Author:
Dana owns a Sheepadoodle and a rescue merle Labradoodle. Her first dog growing up was a white Toy Poodle and she’s loved dogs ever since. She has years of experience fostering dogs and has helped find homes for a variety of different breeds, both large and small! After seeing so many dogs end up unwanted and in shelters, she began blogging about different dog breeds (specifically Doodle dogs, since that’s what she knows best) to help people make informed choices when adding a new member to their family.
When Dana’s not brushing her Doodles’ hair (it takes a lot of time for two!) you can find her playing nose work games and fetch with her two amazing pups.
