MONA is a heart thief. At 7 years of age, this 46 lb tri-color rough coat gal loves people! She lives to be petted, loved & adored. MONA will do anything with you from hanging out at your side to going outside to walk around, or play a little ball. She loves to be chased, especially when she has a tennis ball. She is really cute when she runs and hops around, with the ball occasionally flying out of her mouth so she can track it down and start all over again. Mona is house and crate trained. She is comfortable in her crate, willingly going in any time. She is quiet while in the crate. Walk by and she'll sit up and wag her tail to let you know she is ready for fun time! 


MONA's herding instinct is strong, and as a result will likely have to be an only pet. She is attentive and responsive to her people unless kitty or other dog-engaged. MONA knows sit, down and stay. She loves treats and loves being praised and rewarded. Other than the tennis balls she has not shown an interest in toys or bones as yet. She lights up at with the words "Good Girl." The more MONA is included in family activities the happier she will be.

MONA is micro-chipped, spayed, 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 MONA 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. MONA is being fostered outside of Corning in Tehama County, California.
