The Cheer(ful) litter lives up to their name. They are social, fun-loving puppies. All of these 9-week-old puppies are playful and curious. They have been exposed & lived happily with other animals, including dogs & cats, but also lots of farm animals. They all eat their meals in their own crates to help them to learn that a crate is a good place; they have ridden in a crate in a vehicle; & they sleep together in their puppy pen. They are all learning to potty on newspaper in their pen & are just starting to follow the big dogs outside to go potty.
CARLA is a girl with focus. She checks things out & then sets herself to the task at hand: pouncing on a toy, following her foster mom & pups around the yard in a game of puppy train, or finding something or someplace new to explore thoroughly & purposefully. Carla especially loves chew toys & treats, so both work well for training rewards, & as smart as she is, training should be a blast with this little girl. Carla is active & adventurous, & has a can do attitude. Yet she has a calm button, too. When we took her photographs for the website, she was hands-down the most poised puppy. She seemed to know what we wanted her to do & held her pose again & again. She has a beautiful black & white smooth coat, which will be easy to care for. Can you tell that this little girl has it all? She would thrive in a home where she would have lots of opportunities to train & learn. (Dog sports anyone?) She loves to show her person what she can do.
CARLA 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 CARLA, 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.
CARLA is being fostered in Live Oak in Sutter County, CA.
