DEWEY is a happy go lucky and loving boy with a beautiful red, black and white coat. At 10 months and about 30 lbs, he is happiest when he can hang out and be close to his persons. He’ll park himself at my feet when I am sitting at my desk or cuddle on the couch when I am watching TV. He is smart and eager to please but also loves his treats. This should make for a nice combination for training purposes. DEWEY knows sit and learned “crate” very quickly. He loves water. Get the hose out and he is all yours. Keeping the outside water bowl full has been a challenge because of his playful nature. Fortunately he learned the inside water bowls are off limits except for drinking.


DEWEY gets along well with all of our dogs (male and female). He is respectful of our senior gal’s space and loves to run and play with the others. DEWEY cannot contain his excitement when we head for the door. He will go it alone when he wants to go out but you can see the disappointment in his face when no one else wants to join him. While he enjoys the other dogs he’d also be fine as a one and only as long as the family is going to spend lots of time with him playing and cuddling. He would love to lead an active lifestyle to burn off some energy throughout the day, but is not over the top active as some Border collies can be. He shows a little bit of interest in the cat but it seems fleeting.


DEWEY is still young so have plenty of bones and toys around. We do crate him at night where he sleeps quietly all night long (unless he has to potty). He is also crated when we are away from the house. He is crate trained and potty trained. He will make a fine addition to any family.


DEWEY 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 DEWEY 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. DEWEY is being fostered near Corning in Tehama County, California.
