DEWEY is a happy go lucky and loving boy with a beautiful red, black and white coat. At 10 months and about 30 lbs, he is happiest when he can hang out and be close to his persons. He’ll park himself at my feet when I am sitting at my desk or cuddle on the couch when I am watching TV. He is smart and eager to please but also loves his treats. This should make for a nice combination for training purposes. DEWEY knows sit and learned “crate” very quickly. He loves water. Get the hose out and he is all yours. Keeping the outside water bowl full has been a challenge because of his playful nature. Fortunately he learned the inside water bowls are off limits except for drinking.

NELLIE is a sweet red and white Border Collie young female.  Not much is known about her background but her foster reports she is crate trained, in fact she’s apt to hang out in her crate on her own accord if there is nothing else happening and has never had an accident in the house. NELLIE has a beautiful silky coat and is enjoys frequent brushing (even a bath sometimes!) which keeps her looking her best. She has gorgeous red markings mixed in her mostly white coat; and an adoring gaze from deep and soulful eyes. Tap/click here to read more and see more photos of Nelllie.
