LEMON is a darling 6-7 month old Border Collie mix weighing in at roughly 40lbs and gaining! She has a long-haired, rough gold coat with minimal white and perfect collie ears.
LEMON knows her name and has a decent recall, especially when a treat follows. She is very food-motivated and also responds well to “no.” She is a bit of a chewer, so must be watched closely or crated while alone. LEMON does not prefer, nor particularly enjoy her crate, but goes into her crate well with a small nudge and subsequently sleeps without complaints. She is potty trained, but she does not signal when she needs to go out, so needs frequent offerings.
LEMON is a very playful, curious girl. She barks upon initially meeting new dogs, but quickly falls into puppy play. LEMON loves to run around with her fosters’ dogs and plays fetch reasonably well. She shows interest in others animals—chickens, cats, goats, and horses,—but appears to be easily distractible.
More than anything else, LEMON loves to be pet. She thinks anybody and anything that walks in the door must be coming to visit her. She jumps on new people as puppies do, but has learned not to jump on her fosters. With that being said, LEMON is proving to be very smart and trainable. She knows “sit” and does not bolt out of a door when it is opened, although yes, she would much rather be joining in on the adventure.
LEMON thinks she is a lap dog. If she isn’t in your lap, she is probably under your feet…or maybe chasing her own tail. LEMON follows her foster family absolutely everywhere inside the house. If you pick up a foot, she does, too. LEMON has been appropriate with children, has a strong desire to please and quite simply wants to spend her days with her people!
