Are you looking for a perfect, sweet, obedient little snuggle bug all wrapped up in a perfect mini package? Then DOC just might be the perfect fit! No more than 30 pounds, DOC is just about the sweetest, happiest little boy we've ever met. Along with those stunning blue eyes, DOC has a perfect tri color rough coat that he just loves having us run our fingers through. With that beautiful coat, it's a good thing that he loves being brushed, and when he's all nice and groomed, he looks like he just stepped into the show ring! 

Desperate to please his people, DOC has proven to be an obedient little boy when he must be, but as soon as he's invited onto the couch, it's all wiggly butt wags and a big doggie smile as he rolls over for belly scratches. While DOC would much rather be curled up next to his person on the couch or bed, he's also very obedient when asked to lay down quietly on the floor, although he's never more than a few feet away. When his foster mom gets up to go do something, you can bet that DOC will be right on her heels. He is happiest when he is with his people, and as such, will do best with a family that is home more often than not.  

DOC is housebroken, and crate trained for eating and sleeping, and settles down quietly in his crate when we have to leave for a few hours. While there are kitties in DOC'S foster home, we would recommend a home without, as he is quite keen on them if they dart away quickly. Despite being swatted a few times by the cats, he still is just a little too interested for us to leave him out in the house with the cats unattended.  

Somewhere along the way, DOC has had some basic obedience training, he has a ready sit and lay down, and a good local recall. DOC will be a pleasure to train; he is very treat oriented and praise oriented as well. He just wants to make you happy and hear the words "GOOD BOY!!" DOC loves all people, adults and children alike. He doesn't have a mean bone in his body, and is best friends with everyone he has met. DOC also gets along great with his doggie foster siblings, engaging in play with the ones that will play with him, and would love to have a playful companion in his new home. DOC likes toys, but not to the point that he will chew them, he just likes to pack a stuffed animal around and try to entice someone to play with him.  

DOC 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 DOC 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. DOC is being fostered north of Sacramento,  California.
