Meet Chief

Chief is a 3.5 year old male Border Collie mix who weighs in at 40 pounds.  His adoption fee is $375.  If you are still interested, read more below.

Hi, my name is Chief. I’m looking for a special forever family. I LOVE being near ‘my people’. I warm up very quickly to my caregivers and I don’t want to leave your side. I am playful - I love toys, balls, chewing bones, and going on walks. I also like to cuddle and take naps. Did I mention how soft my fur is? I have been taking daily medicine for separation anxiety and it has helped a ton! I am getting better at being on my own when my parents go to work. I love meeting people of all ages and I am gentle on the leash. I’m looking for my forever family!

Chief is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, housetrained and neutered.  This pup's new family will be required to complete a basic obedience course of their choosing.  A meeting will not be scheduled until you have an approved application, so if you're interested in adopting this pup fill out an Online Application today!

Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will contact you to arrange a meeting.

Chief is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. Learn more about our pet adoption process.

All pets adopted from A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation include the following as part of their adoption fee:

  • Spay/neuter or a certificate for a low-cost spay/neuter when medically recommended
  • Microchip and registration, a permanent identification to reunite lost pets with their owners
  • Initial de-worming and flea and tick treatment
  • Age-appropriate testing for heartworm/FIV-FELV
  • Age-appropriate vaccines
  • Pre-adoption medical exam
  • A certificate for a free healthy pet exam at one of A.R.F.’s participating veterinarians within 7 days of adoption
  • Offer for a no-risk 30 day free trial with Trupanion pet medical insurance

If a cat or dog is on our website, it is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. If you find yourself interested in one of our animals, submit a no-commitment application immediately. Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but does get you a head start with the adoption approval process. Due to a high volume of applications, we are often unable to respond to questions until your application has been approved in approximately 3-5 business days.

We do not schedule meetings until you have an approved application.

A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation does not have a facility where applicants can visit our animals.  The majority of our dogs and cats are brought to adoption events by our volunteers. We invite everyone to come to our events, but we give priority to pre-approved applicants.

If you’re invited to meet an animal:

  • Plan to arrive on time (or early), as we cannot hold animals for any reason.
  • All human household members and dogs (if adopting another dog), must be present in order to be considered as a potential adopter.

Thank you for your interest and cooperation!
