Australian Shepherd pup with 1/4 Border Collie, 8 months old (born Dec 7, 2022). My pup has a great personality, loves to snuggle, have her belly rubbed, give hugs, pretty much she’s a great dog. Her name is Persie and she is up to date on her vaccinations, she’s spayed and microchipped. Her vet is Dr Goodlet at the Kamloops Veterinary Clinic 250-374-1485.

I thought I was doing the right thing, bringing a pup home as a companion for my Aussie, she’s 13. As it turns out it was a mistake, and they have a love hate relationship. As Persie grows up she is maturing into a beautiful female Alpha dog. Due to her alpha attitude Persie doesn’t want to share me with my other dog and she goes into Resource Guarding mode when my other dog starts to move in my direction. Unfortunately, I’m the resource she’s guarding.

I don’t want either dog to get hurt, mentally or physically, and both deserve a better quality of life. That’s why I’ve made the difficult decision to rehome her. She needs to be with another person/family in a 1 dog home or a home that already has an Alpha to which she will become submissive. Both of my dogs can play together but it usually turns into sibling rivalry. They’re like kids in a sandbox duking it out. Persie just wants to have fun, be loved and be a puppy and this situation isn’t fair to either dog. She has shown how much she wants and craves your love but needs an active person/family. She’s a great companion but, she’s also a toddler herself, that means the house and yard have to be puppy proofed. Both of my dogs are outside during the day and, when I’m home they are allowed in and out of the house. Most times I leave my door open, so they can come and go on their own. Persie is 99% house-trained and she has started to ask to go out so that’s a good sign. Before bed I always take her out but she doesn’t always go. This means she may wake you up during the night but not likely. Persie is still kenneled at night but I’m starting to leave her out with the bedroom door closed (just in case). In my home, dogs are not allowed on the livingroom or bedroom furniture but, she has worked her way up onto my bed for an occasional 5 minuet morning snuggle. I’m working on her manners, but she tests your patience. When there’s a treat involved, she’s quick to learn.

If you’d like to meet Persie you can reply to my ad, text or call 250-851-1782. I have a short video of her, and if you’d like to see it send me your email address or send me one We live in Kamloops. She comes with her leash, food & dish, toys, blanket, frisbee and a kiddie pool. I Look forward to meeting you. Asking $750 rehoming fee

** We have never met Persie we are just helping find a home.

Broken Promises Rescue is a volunteer run, not-for-profit, animal rescue organization located in the lower Vancouver Island. We are a group of long time rescuers that have come together to focus on improving the lives of unwanted, neglected and orphaned animals on Vancouver Island (as well as remote communities and other areas of B.C. if our resources allow us to.) Currently we are seeing many pets overlooked in the shelter system because they have less than desirable qualities. They may have medical or behavioral issues or they may simply be the wrong color, age or breed. At Broken Promise Rescue we believe all animals deserve to experience a life without pain, loneliness or hunger and want them to know what it feels like to be loved and cherished, despite appearance, age or medical condition. We are also dedicated to public education and raising awareness to help end the ongoing abuse, neglect and suffering. Educating children and adults about the responsibilities of animal ownership will go a long way in influencing public opinion on proper animal care, and help mold a more compassionate future. No animal should suffer at the hands of ignorance.
