|Rescue Me ID: 14-07-17-00373Clarabelle (female)|
It takes a long time to get this sweet! Meet Clarabelle! She is a super gentle, intelligent, mature soul looking for her retirement home! We don't know much about her history as she was found as a stray - but those pretty eyes must have quite the story to tell! Our vet estimates that she is 10 years old, and is 35 pounds and appears to be in good health! The best word for Clara is GENTLE. She is extremely calm and doesn't bark much. She likes to be outside, going for walks (though the days of long hikes are behind her) and gazing out the French doors in her foster home. She is completely fine with the dog and cat in her foster home, and would be very trustworthy around children. The best home for sweet Clara would be one without a lot of stairs - she is completely fine with a few stairs up and down from the porch/deck, but big flights of stairs may be difficult for her. Also, while she is good with children, small toddlers might be too much for her to handle. ----------------------------------- What are some advantages of adopting a senior dog? 1. What you see is what you get with a senior dog. You already know its size, its grooming needs, its personality, and its temperament. With a puppy, these are all unknowns, but with an older dog, you can be sure you're getting exactly the kind of dog that will fit best into your lifestyle. 2. Many senior dogs are already housebroken and know basic commands. Generally, they don't need the extensive training that a puppy requires. And by the way, it's not true that you can't teach an old dog new tricks. You most certainly can! 3. Senior pets are typically much less destructive than puppies. They've already gone through the 'chewing stage', so you won't have to worry about your shoes, furniture, and newspaper. Your senior dog most likely won't be interested! 4. If you lead an 'low impact' life, a senior dog will fit right in. They don't usually require a lot of exercise, and they're happy to cuddle on the couch. 5. Senior dogs are often overlooked in shelters. They're the last to be adopted and the first to be euthanized. You truly are saving a life when you adopt a senior dog. (Less)

|PIease Read Before Adopting a Border Collie in Massachusetts|
Border Collie Dogs can make good pets in Massachusetts 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.
