A warm welcome to lovely SKYE. This three year old, rough coat, female BC is a true gem. She has the most beautiful markings with her tri-color face and hind legs and distinctive freckles on her chest and forelegs. SKYE is medium energy BC who weighs about 50 lbs. She is a calm, highly affectionate girl who gets along with the entire pack at her foster home; from the young and spry to the older, more sedate dogs, whom she will readily share floor space when it’s time to settle in. She is always keen to check in with mom and dad for some petting and love. She settles into dad’s office during work hours and is quick to accompany us on our activities around the house and in the garden.

SKYE rarely barks, has shown no disagreeable behaviors such as chewing or digging and settles nicely at mom's feet for an evening movie. She crates quietly overnight, walks nicely on leash and is housebroken. SKYE met PuckleCat, gave her a curious sniff and walked away. PuckleCat appreciates the  respect. 🐱 SKYE appears to have been a family dog as she has adapted easily to her foster home and loved her bath and grooming time. SKYE loves riding in the car and jumps in readily when the car door is open.

We believe SKYE will make an outstanding companion dog for some lucky person or family. Her essentials bag is packed as she awaits her new family to come meet her. We will truly miss our SKYE when she is adopted, but she is ready to find her forever home and start a new life adventure.

SKYE 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 SKYE 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. SKYE is being fostered in Auburn in Placer County, California.
