Meet HAP! A sweet, cuddly, sassy 3-month-old puppy, HAP is 16 pounds with a classic black and white marked coat, medium, stand-up ears and a halo of a shawl! HAP is a beautiful puppy and will be one handsome boy! He is highly socialized and loves being with his humans, receiving hugs and kisses, cuddling and receiving belly rubs, and settling in at your feet for a nap. HAP demands time and attention by his humans, and will thrive with training and activities such as agility, fly ball, nose work, etc.
HAP is curious, playful, inquisitive and happy. He is an adventuresome puppy and can be quite rambunctious, seeking to run with the big dogs, finding anything to play with, and being quite vocal. HAP is partially potty-trained and sleeps through the night in his crate. HAP loves toys, especially when he can play tug-of-war and keep-away. Plushies (under supervision as he will seek and find squeakers!), Kongs, and balls are popular, but he also finds lots of other things to play with (like socks, boots, paper) so you’ll need to keep non-toy items up out of reach for now. He loves to wrestle with his foster-mate, and give kisses to the senior BC in the house. Favorite treats include Costco dog bones (broken into pieces), and any dog cookie. HAP’s not yet crazy about traveling in the car, but your support and experience will help him as he grows.
HAP 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 HAP, 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.
HAP is being fostered in Granite Bay in Placer County, CA.
