Border Collie    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament

(Crate included with his adoption). Vader loves his person. He bonds strongly and lovingly with his human and gets along with almost every dog he's met; we don't know if he's ever met a cat. When meeting new people outside the home, he gives kisses, offers you his paw and is a complete gentleman. However, inside the home it is a different story entirely. Surprisingly, this boy springs into action as a incredibly aggressive and protective guard dog while in his own ... (Read More)home. It caught everyone off guard including his foster mom, when he started lunging at visitors to his home. Off his own turf, he is an angel.

When no one else is visiting the home, he happily hangs out on his bed or on the couch watching TV with his person, and chewing on his bully sticks and yak chews. Vader is a healthy senior with a little arthritis, neutered, de-wormed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped and he even had a dental. He is heartworm tested and on monthly preventative. To meet and possibly adopt Vader, please fill out and return the adoption application: and follow up by contacting his foster mom Colleen at the Perfect Pooches Adoption Agency, His adoption fee of $100 (including his crate) benefits the rescued pets of Perfect Pooches.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Border Collie in Illinois
    Border Collie Dogs can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. Border Collies are extremely intelligent, faithful dogs who live to please their masters. Border Collies need lots of attention and praise. They respond to high level obedience training and make excellent Frisbee dogs and farm workers. Border Collies do well in large yards or with acreage and they need a job to do. If a Border Collie becomes bored, he will find his own job to do and it may not be the owner's idea of work. Border Collies do well with older children and other dogs, and some Border Collies can coexist with cats. However, it depends on the dog, and generally Border Collies should not be trusted with non-canine pets.
