If interested in Sammy,
please contact Jeff at

Sammy is a loving 1 year/10 month old medium coat Border Collie. He loves to be with his family and will follow them around the house to be where they are—his owners work from home. He likes to come nuzzle up by your legs for a back scratch.  He is really soft!  He is completely housebroken and sleeps quietly in his crate all night inside. He loves to take car rides.  He knows simple commands and can catch a Frisbee in his mouth and play fetch.  He mostly ignores the family cat inside, but will chase her outside. Mostly walks well on a leash. He’s not too sure of other dogs—will sometimes play and sometimes be aggressive. He likes kids, but needs more training on not jumping up in his excitement.  He is happy to see most people, but can be skittish or barking with others. He needs an active family who will give him a job and/or have room to play and run. He comes from a working family and may be a great asset to a ranch or farm with livestock.  A fast and eager learner, he is ready for a job. Sam does not chew shoes or dig up the yard, his only negative habit is pacing around the house due to pent up energy. 

Sammy is neutered, current on all shots, and has always been up-to-date on heartworm and flea/tick meds.  He is approximately 50 lbs. He is micro-chipped. Contact us at jeff@elevatecamps.org for more information or text 530-917-7017.
