AMY is a darling 13 pound, 14-week-old Border collie/McNab mix girlie, with the slick, easy-care McNab coat, & the smarts & keen attention common to both breeds. She is a delightful, enthusiastic, social girl. Amy thinks it’s all fun & would like someone to share fun with her. She loves tug toys, chew toys, & balls, & she loves any & all treats. So, she will work & learn for toys & treats. She loves playing tug & chasing the other dogs in her foster home as fast as she can possibly run!
AMY learns quickly & is making great strides in potty training (using a doggy door reliably). She offers a “sit” & comes when she is called—not so much to her name as to a double-click sound. While she is not truly crate-trained, she has eaten her meals in a crate or her pen & has traveled well in her crate. She knows to “go to crate/pen” for meals & to sit & wait to get her food.
While AMY is a very active, go-go-go, fun-loving girl that will need more stimulation & engaged activity than a walk around the block, she can settle & be soft & affectionate. She is also easy to handle. She would thrive in a home with a family that likes to train–maybe even dog sports like agility, flyball, nosework– & where she gets to be a part of things (hiking?) with her people & with another dog pal. (She would really like to live in a home with another dog, & we want that for her.) She has lived with cats; if the cats run, she is likely to chase them. If you are looking for a dog that is a blast to train & play with, who loves people & other dogs & wants to be with her people, & who is adventurous, sweet, & adorable, Amy might be your puppy.
AMY is started on her puppy vaccines, wormed, and microchipped. She is also on flea & tick and heartworm prevention. As a condition of puppy adoption, she will need to be altered when she reaches approximately 6 months (specific time to be determined by your vet). In addition to the adoption fee, puppy adoption requires a $75 spay/neuter deposit. Upon our receiving the spay/neuter certificate from you, the deposit is refunded. If you have an approved Northern California Border Collie Rescue & Adoptions Adoption Application and wish to inquire about AMY, please email us at Adoptions@norcalbcrescue.org. 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.
AMY is being fostered in Live Oak in Sutter County, CA.
