Craig • Male • 1 year

Meet CRAIG, a 1-year old 60-pound ‘puppy’ who loves to play with just about everyone. CRAIG has a medium coat, stunning markings, and piercing blue eyes. He loves to be right in the action, socializing and playing games, and will easily roll over for a good belly rub and affection from his human.  Watch Craig’s YouTube video.


Like any young dog, CRAIG is learning his manners in his foster home, such as no jumping, walking on a leash and recall, and will benefit from a basic obedience class with his new family. CRAIG is housetrained and sleeps in his crate at night, loves to chew on his antler or any other toy, and has a happy personality. As a big dog, CRAIG has a big bark, but is easily corrected so that noise doesn’t become an issue. Families with young children (or grandchildren) may find CRAIG’s size a bit exuberant for their lifestyle – he is a fit and active dog that loves to be where the party is!


CRAIG is micro-chipped, neutered, heart worm negative and on preventative, and up to date on vaccinations. If you have an approved Northern California Border Collie Rescue & Adoptions Application and wish to enquire about CRAIG please email us at Adoptions@norcalbcrescue.org. If you have an approved adoption application with Border Collie Rescue of Northern California let us know and we will request it be forwarded to us for consideration. CRAIG is being fostered in Granite Bay in Placer County, California.
