One of the trendiest new breeds on the scene is a cross between a Border Collie and a Poodle. Although this breed is sometimes called by other names such as Borpoo and Borderdoodle, its most popular moniker is Bordoodle.
These dogs are some of the most sought-after out there, and not only because they are incredibly cute – although they are. Their temperament is perfectly suited to be a well-loved family pet, with breed organizations describing them as sociable and friendly, loving and loyal, and – perhaps most importantly for a dog being brought into a home – protective.
Although many people do acquire these awesome animals from breeders, others feel that adoption is the way to go. So, if you are in the process of searching for a Bordoodle to adopt, here are some of the places you can start the process.
1) Breed-Specific Rescue Organizations
One of the fortunate things about searching for a dog that is a distinct mix between two popular breeds is that rescue organizations for each of the breeds will generally accept those dogs. Therefore, in this specific example, you could contact rescue organizations for both Border Collies and Poodles, and conceivably have good luck in either place.
2) Local Animal Shelters
Of course, one of the first and best places to look for an animal to adopt is at the local pound, or animal shelter. Although it can sometimes be difficult to find very specific breeds that happen to be brought into a shelter near your home, often those shelters are connected to a network of other shelters, and they can conduct a network-wide search for the type of animal that you are looking for.
One advantage of utilizing the local shelter staff to assist in your hunt is that they will often be privy to information that you would not be able to glean from the public-facing website, such as the results of temperament tests or medical examinations.
3) Rescue Adoption Websites
Lastly, there are a plethora of websites available that let you conduct a search for adoptable pets, either from rescues or shelters. The advantage of using these websites is that you can set any search parameters you like, such as breed, age, gender, or distance from your home, and then look at the results �” which will include such information as the pet’s personality and past history.
By utilizing these tools, there is no doubt that you and your family will be at home cuddling with your new rescue puppy in no time!
