Say hello to BEAR! This adorable little guy, approximately 3 1/2 months old and about 20 lbs, is a bundle of energy and fun! His demeanor is mostly laid back and easy going but he does get excited when playing. BEAR is a smooth coated male (easy care and cooler in summer!) Border collie / lab mix. His coloring is a typical BC marking of white and a sort of chocolaty red/brown. He coat shines beautifully in the sunlight, and those eyes are soulful beyond his years.
BEAR plays very well with the 4 border collies at his foster home. The youngest, a one year old female, and BEAR play tug, chase and wrestle nonstop until they flop down for a much needed time out. He was the same with a 1 year old male at this first stop. It is lots of fun to watch. BEAR is very affectionate wanting to be petted, held and loved on by his people. He is a bit yappy at new dogs coming onto “his” place but 10 minutes later he’s off running with them and he has a new best friend! BEAR loves his toys, has left alone the things he shouldn’t chew and cuddles up at mom’s feet at the end of the day.
BEAR is crate trained, always running to HIS crate when it’s dinner or treat time. He’s largely house broken and is quiet in his crate overnight. What a GOOD BOY! He is curious but not threatening towards the resident cat, Pucklechurch, but our Puckle is very dog savvy and no pup troubles her!
BEAR will need some devoted training to be the best boy he can be but already he gets high marks for not digging, chewing or barking excessively and all he needs now is a home to call his own. His puppy rucksack is packed (let’s see, 2 tennis balls and a deer antler); yup, he’s ready to be adopted! Could it be you?
BEAR 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 BEAR, 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.
BEAR is being fostered in Auburn in Placer County, California.
