Allow me to introduce “Red” Baron. BARON has big paws, a fluffy coat, lots of spunk and energy, and, oh, and did I say BIG paws. At thirty two pounds and four months of age we expect Baron will tip the scales at 60+ pounds when he is all grown up and filled out. He is loaded with vim, vigor and spunk. BARON loves people and gets along well with, and wants to play with, the other dogs all day long. His best bud is 3 month old Rob (the black and white also pictured and posting today). They wrestle, they chase each other, they chase balls, and they scamper around the yard like they own the place.
BARON is house and crate trained and sleeps quietly in his crate all night. It can take him a few minutes to settle in when he goes into his crate, but once settled will be quiet until it’s time to eat, go outside, or there is activity in view. He will get very vocal when he has to go potty. BARON is learning to sit quietly before we open the crate door to feed him or let him out. He knows sit and is getting better with “crate.” When going outside he is always accompanied by another dog, and much prefers one of the humans go out too. Cats do not seem to be a problem but we don’t know what he would do if put in a position to “chase.” His is very smart and recall is good so if accompanied by his person we think he’ll be ok. We are looking for a home where he will have a big brother or sister from whom to learn the ropes and be a friendly and playful companion.
BARON is started on his puppy vaccines, wormed, and microchipped. As a condition of puppy adoption, he will need to be altered when he 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 BARON, 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.
BARON is being fostered in Corning in Tehama County, California.
