GRACIE is a sweet, tri-colored border collie mix who is approximately five years old. GRACIE has a super soft, medium coat with gorgeous “feathers”.  At 32 lbs., GRACIE is a lot of love and happiness in a smaller package. She’s a “Velcro” dog who loves to be close to her person and is always happy to snuggle. GRACIE is very eager to please and both treat and toy-motivated. At her foster home, she absolutely adores her on-leash morning runs. She has learned the command “ignore” and will now run by less well-mannered dogs, paying no attention to them. GRACIE also really enjoys chasing a ball or toy.

GRACIE is always ready to jump into the car to go traveling with her person. She is house broken, crate trained and settles and sleeps quietly in her crate at night. All in all, GRACIE is a super sweet and fun dog ready for her forever family. GRACIE would very much love to meet you to discuss your future together!
