One of the best breed of dogs to own, is one that comes from the working class. These dogs are highly intelligent and make very loyal companions. But one dog in particular; the Border collie, is one of the all-time favorites. If you are thinking of owning one of these dogs, then you have made a great choice. But instead of going the traditional route and getting one from a breeder, why not consider a Border Collie Rescue? These groups are located around the United States and can fill your needs. They have dogs of all ages so finding the right dog shouldn’t be a problem.
By utilizing a rescue group, you are helping save a life. Unlike those puppies at the breeders, these dogs are homeless and in need of your help. While they will have a temporary home at the group, many of these dogs have never had a true home to call their own. There is something very special about dogs that come from these groups. They seem to have a special loyalty that other dogs simply don’t have. Many of them are very thankful to find homes and will reward you with a lifetime of joy and love.
While one of these groups might not be in the area you are from, many will work with you. Often times these groups are very willing to help place a dog with you, even if you live hundreds of miles away. There are several canine transport companies that can be utilized, to have your new pet brought either to a local airport or right to your doorstep. The best way to find a group that will accommodate you is to do an online search. You will not only be able to contact groups via their websites, but also be able to view the dogs that they have available. This will give you a good idea of the animal you are getting and you can read about the history of the dog.
So if you are thinking of getting a new pet in the near future, please keep these wonderful groups in mind.
