CEDAR ——male—says: “My real name is Cedar, but my foster mom calls me Cubby. I don’t know why except maybe I remind her of a baby bear. I am almost as tall as I am long, & I have something called ‘baby breath.’ I’ve been told that it really wins people over. Like my brother Wally, I am very sweet & love to give kisses. I like toys lots, especially the kind I can chew & chew & chew on; sometimes I forget that my brothers & sisters aren’t chew toys, but I’m quickly on to other adventures like playing with the other critters at my foster home or playing in the water. Maybe you would like to teach me to swim? I’m super smart & would learn quickly because I love toys & treats & being told what a good boy I am.”
Arriving in June, the six Cottonwood kids joined the pack in their foster family after a typical puppy quarantine. Soon they were running, playing, and within minutes figuring out the dog door and exploring the great outdoors. The garden, the big fountain, the cats, the tortoises, the chickens, and the other border collies all provide great adventures. Their foster mom and other visitors quickly won these puppies’ hearts & trust. At about 10-weeks-old, these Border collie/Aussie/McNab mix pups sure show all the characteristics typical of these breeds: smarts, speed, need to have things to do, & lots of energy (can we say “drive”?) They all have easy-care coats. The pups sleep together in an x-pen & eat all their meals in individual crates. They are learning to use newspapers in their pen (as well as the yard when they’re all outside) so should housebreak easily when consistently taken outside. They love treats & toys, which will make training fun.
CEDAR is started on his puppy vaccines, wormed, and microchipped. He is also on flea & tick and heartworm prevention. 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 CEDAR, 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.
CEDAR is being fostered in Live Oak in Sutter County, CA.
