Say hello to DOTTIE! This beautiful 3-year old, smooth coat blue merle border collie is very affectionate and loves her people. She likes to be with you, hanging out, walking or running, curling up for a nap or bedding down for the night. While initially doing a bit of pulling on the leash, DOTTIE quickly figured it out and became a good walking companion. DOTTIE is housebroken and crate trained, sleeping quietly all night. She likes to play with toys and balls in the yard, wrestle and run with her foster pack mates, or settle down for a respite ‘chew’ on a deer antler.  DOTTIE  is a very smart girl! She knows basic commands, will retrieve the ball and bring it back to you, knows how to drop the ball with a little force and spin and have it roll right to your feet! She’s tenacious with a tug toy, but if you tell her to let go she will release it and let the game begin anew. Just to show off, she knows "sit" and "shake"! 

DOTTIE has been an excellent house guest at her foster home. She hasn’t chewed any inappropriate items nor done any digging in the yard. At three years, she falls into that young and playful, but more mature category. She is somewhat dominate, so a home with less dominate dog personalities would be a good fit or she would love to have her humans to herself as well! DOTTIE alarm barks a bit if a stranger shows up, but is readily called off. All in all DOTTIE has her rucksack packed and is looking for her new forever family to join her in a life of fun and adventure.

DOTTIE is micro-chipped, spayed, heart worm negative and on preventative, and up to date on vaccinations.

DOTTIE is being fostered in Granite Bay in Placer County, California.
