Dixie • Female • 5 months •  Adopted!  Please return to
 the Home page to start your search for available dogs!  Thank you!

This bundle of energy is a 5 month old Border Collie who would love to wiggle her way into your heart! DIXIE is 30 lbs. of cuddles and a happy go lucky attitude. Of course, since she is a Border Collie puppy she has tons of energy and she is still learning about her great big world. Her short tri-colored coat is easy to groom and her soulful brown eyes can’t help but melt your heart!

Being a typical BC pup, DIXIE can be a handful at times as she tests her limits and gains confidence. However, with proper DAILY exercise, patience, and guidance, she will be an awesome companion for the right person. While in her foster home DIXIE has been working hard to learn what is expected of her. She has learned some basic obedience but will still require someone who has the time to continue her training.

DIXIE loves to play with toys and if you are looking for a running partner to join you, DIXIE is your girl. We also think she might enjoy agility, if given the training. She loves to play fetch and Frisbee and will bring the ball or Frisbee back to you 100% of the time, unless, of course she is exhausted…then she lays down with it as if to say, “give me 2 minutes then I’ll be ready to go, again”! And so it goes with Border Collies!

DIXIE has been well socialized and loves to play with other dogs, and she has been friendly with strangers she meets on her daily outings. She loves to ride in the car, is a great traveler and will eagerly jump in.  She is not, yet, totally housebroken but will sometimes give us a signal that she wants to go outside to do her business. At bedtime, DIXIE sleeps quietly through the night in her crate. She is not aggressive or alpha, in any way, but neither is she a wallflower. All in all DIXIE is well worth the time and effort needed to make her the best she can be!

We are looking for someone who has experience with this energetic breed. We would also prefer to place DIXIE in a home with older children.  She can be an only dog but she would love a doggie buddy that can keep up with her energy level. If you think you can offer DIXIE her furever home she is ready to meet you.

DIXIE is micro-chipped, spayed, 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 DIXIE 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. DIXIE is being fostered in Nevada City in Nevada County, California.
