BESS, aka Mona, delivered a litter of 6 beautiful puppies on Labor Day. She was a great mother and now with her pups of age and all adopted, it’s time for Bess to shine, and shine she does! She is a 6-year-old, 40 pound, rough-coated Border collie, black and white with beautiful traditional markings. She has been spayed and is ready to get on with her life. Her foster mom says, “Bess is one of the most fun mom dogs I’ve had the pleasure of fostering. She was great with her pups as newborns, and when they were old enough she loved playing and rough-housing with them and teaching them about the world.
Now with the pups adopted we have gotten to know the real Bess. She loves to play and interact with her foster mom and the other critters in her foster home. Her favorite toy is an empty cardboard box! BESS loves to go for runs in the orchard and watch the sheep go the other way. After a bout of play, she easily settles and does not have a hyper personality but instead a pleasant interactive personality. At night she will easily sleep in a crate, but (if there were room) she would love to sleep on the bed. She knows all the very basic commands and has a great recall!
Being a rescue girl little is known about Bess’s upbringing; however, we know she lived with several other dogs, and it seems didn’t receive all the individual attention and training she deserved. Although Bess is making up for lost time with experiences at her foster home, she still has work/training to do. She can be cautious of strangers, needs to work a bit on housebreaking, and needs more experience on leash. BESS is sound sensitive when it comes to loud booms, and she will probably need extra care when it comes to fireworks! With that being said, she will make a wonderful companion. She certainly will be a dog to remember for her foster mom!
BESS is micro-chipped, spayed, heart worm negative and on preventative, and up to date on vaccinations.
