Meet our adorable freckled friend, DASH! He’s not a goofy dog at all, he just kind looks the part sometimes! This one year old smooth coat border collie boy is very sweet. He has been a bit shy with people at the outset. He’s not frightened, but just takes his time to warm up to you. But once he's there, he puts his paws on your lap and leans into you for a cuddle. Our sweet boy with his soulful eyes will just melt your heart.

DASH gets along with all of the other dogs at his foster home, the young and old, the playful and sedentary. The three younger dogs, DASH, Flash and Skye, each morning have a round-robin of tag to get going. He had an initial chase of PuckleCat, but has found her of no particular play value and pays her little attention now. DASH has very good house manners in being housebroken for pottying outside, crate trained for sleeping quietly at night, and walks nicely on leash. DASH is a great companion dog. He's smart, has learned his name already and comes when called. Now our dear DASH has his rucksack packed and is ready to find his forever home. Come and meet me says our boy!

DASH 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 DASH please email us at 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. DASH is being fostered in Auburn in Placer County, California.
