Meet FRASER, an 8-week-old girlie with a beautiful tri-colored smooth coat. And we’re all taking bets on what her ears are going to do (just today we see ears heading in an upward direction). Fraser is spunk & sweet rolled into one. At about 10 pounds, she can run with the big dogs & loves to. She isn’t afraid of anything. She chases after the big dogs in her foster home until she is tired enough to do somersaults across the yard. She doesn’t want to miss out on anything. And when she becomes a pest & they tell her to back off, she listens. One of her favorite things to do is to gather all the toys, even toys that are bigger than her, & take them into her “lair,” creating a big pile. It’s hilarious. She doesn’t guard her toys; she simply collects them. Like all puppies her age, when she gets too tired, she has trouble winding down, so that is the time she needs to return to her pen or crate & take a puppa-nap. She is crate-trained, & is making great progress in potty-training.
FRASER is both treat & toy-motivated; she is confident & adventurous. So, this little girl will be a blast to train. Her middle name is “Can Do.” She can be a little bit independent & insist on her way, but she responds well to redirection & excited encouragement. She is social with people (approaching everyone she meets with enthusiasm) & other dogs. (She does like to grab people’s pant legs, but is easily redirected to something else.) So far she is respectful of adult cats. She’s interested, but doesn’t want to get too close. Fraser is a little girl with smarts, attitude, & tons of energy. She would do best in a home that knows how to channel her gifts & potential, one with training experience & interest in doing things with an adventurous spitfire of a puppy. She is going to need more than walks & retrieving a ball. And what fun you could have with her, if you are a person who enjoys that kind of challenge! And at the end of the adventuring, Fraser will also be a girl who will curl up next to you for a massage or cuddle in your arms for some love.
FRASER 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 FRASER, 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.
FRASER is being fostered north of Sacramento County, CA.
