If interested in Flora,  
please contact Ginny at

Flora is a 6 month old high energy, intelligent and motivated young lady. Her usual day is training in the morning, play during day with another BC and a lab, training in the evening and kenneled overnight. She is house trained and crate trained. She is refining walking on leash and knows basic commands including sit, down, kennel, come, watch me, stay, with me/heel, waiting at doors, getting in car and a few others. 

She was originally purchased from a herding breeder by an older couple who did not have the time or energy to deal with her. Thus, she was untrained and unruly when they turned her into the shelter at 4 months of age. My mother had recently lost her dog and I knew of the dog and her history so I adopted her with the hopes she would be a new dog for my mother. She unfortunately has too much energy for my mother. So her training for the last 2 months has prepped her for someone else that is looking for an active Border Collie puppy. 

She would do best in a very active home especially one that might be interested in agility. She may also have some drive for herding so that is another option but she has not been tested so unsure if she has any instinct. She gets along well with my other dogs and my cats. She will need work on controlling her drive and focusing her energy. Due to her history of isolation until she was turned into shelter she has difficultly with introductions with high energy other dogs and may be a bit too rambunctious for a dog with a short temper.

She is microchipped, spayed, current on all vaccinations, getting daily clicker training, getting Heartgard and Nexgard monthly. Please contact Ginny at backwoodsblonde7@yahoo.com
