Nellie. 5 year old McNabb/Border Collie X. Spayed, current on vax. Previously lived with older couple with no other "siblings". Came to me last August after the fires as a temporary foster. She is now looking for her forever people. She is FABULOUS one on one. Adores any toy you throw. She might not bring it to you, but it'll be close! Check the flower pots, the wheelbarrow, or any water bucket if it's a tennis ball!! She's adorable! Great with dog savvy kids, and currently lives with 7 kids, ages 4 and up! Appreciates other dogs, and occasionally plays, but in a pack of 6, she's definitely stressed, and she does tend to herd other less dominant dogs. I think she would prefer to be an only dog, or live with just one other that may need company, but not so much  a playmate. She needs more one on one attention to thrive (don't we all!) Nellie should be in a home without little pets (cats, bunnies, etc). I don't have chickens, but I'm not sure I would trust her with them. She does ok on trail rides with the horses, but any other time she will chase, herd, and nip, so ideally she could go back to a more city lifestyle and thrive with a couple walks daily or some simple play time. She settles inside when there is no other distractions (cats, cats, cats!), and is COMPLETELY house trained. She will kennel, but would prefer to be by her human. Very loveable once she knows you, but she does take time to warm up. Walks 'ok' on leash, but I'm typically walking 6, so she would likely do better solo. Travels like a dream. She will bolt if allowed, but it's out of boredom more than anything, so she's easy to lure back in with a toy :) 

Overall a fabulous dog!! If we didn't have 6 indoor cats, horses that we cannot block access to, and 5 other attention craving pups, she might stay forever! But she deserves to be loved completely, and spoiled!! 

Located in Visalia, CA. I am happy to transport!
