HELPER is a very interactive pup. He loves being with me and exploring things I’m trying to work on, and is the big boy of the group at 10 pounds. His siblings can lay on him, pull his tail, bite his ears and tease him and he is ok with everything and enjoys the attention. Although he interacts great with all the other dogs (adults included) his choice would to be with me. HELPER is very food-motivated, which will be great for training. His favorite activities are to run & play & chew toys (or anything else left where he can get it).
Mama Mercy’s pups were born around 10/1/21, & they are excited about finding their forever homes. Mama weighs about 36 pounds. We don’t know who the dad or dads are, so we are offering an educated guess on the pups’ adult sizes. Mama Mercy (Last Photo) will be available for Adoption after her spay. We are not taking applications for her at this time.
These pups have two speeds: crazy-playing (tugging, chewing, tossing, wrestling, running, etc.) or sleeping. Their new families will have lots of laughs watching their antics. They love people, dogs, & cats that will play with them. They love all toys, especially tug toys & boxes they can play on & in. When they finally tire of playing, they can be snuggly & affectionate, but their go-to preference is to play, & they like people best who will play with them.
These puppies are ruff-&-tumble, playing hard. So, they will thrive best in homes that are ready for fun & adventure & who know how to direct the puppies in appropriate play, homes who are ready to train & manage the puppies’ environment. The pups might also do well in a home with an adult dog that is even-tempered & will help to show a new puppy in the family the ropes. They know how to go in-&-out of a doggy door, but they don’t yet know the purpose of a doggy door. They eat their meals each in their own crate, but they are all sleeping together in a puppy pen.
HELPER is started on his puppy vaccines, wormed, and microchipped. 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 HELPER, 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.
HELPER is being fostered in Live Oak in Sutter County, CA.
