Auggie: Shy at first, but will melt your heart

Posted: Updated:

Breed: Pointer/Border Collie mix
Gender: Male
Age: 5 years old
ID #: 190153
Adoption Fee: $95

Auggie, a 5-year-old Pointer/Border Collie mix, is looking for a loving home to call his own. He was transferred to us from another shelter and was shy and shut down. He had multiple medical conditions requiring immediate attention so his caregivers went to work to get him feeling better as soon as possible. Now that he has had time to recover, he is opening up and showing his caregivers what a true gentleman he is. 

Auggie might be a bit timid at first, but that just adds to his heart-melting personality. While most dogs of his breed are high-energy and active, Auggie is the complete opposite. He is mellow, quiet and extremely gentle. He carefully takes treats from his caregiver’s hand, and when he’s ready for petting, he will sweetly approach and place his paw on your lap. He walks loosely on his leash and likes to explore the play yard, but his favorite thing is being with someone he trusts and showing them his true affectionate nature.

His adoption fee includes his neuter, current vaccinations, permanent microchip identification, 30 days of worry-free medical insurance from Trupanion Insurance, a certificate for a free veterinary exam, and a license if residing in Oceanside, Vista, San Marcos, Escondido or Poway.
