MARSHA is a soft and cuddly black and white short to medium coat border collie mix. At 9 weeks and 9 pounds, Marsha wants mostly to be with her people. She is the most reserved of the bunch, choosing to let her sisters go first when checking out something new, but then joining full force once she is confident it looks fun. She enjoys the company of her sisters, but when they are free she seeks out her human companions. Marsha loves to be held and cuddled.
MARSHA’s house and crate training are a work in progress, but she’s getting there. She is fed in her crate and always sits nicely for her food. MARSHA is quiet in her crate during down time and overnight until it’s potty time. It’s usually her sisters that will cry, so we let them all out (1 – 2 times per night). She also learned the advantages of the doggie door (ours goes to our safe and secure deck), so she has a head start if her new home has one.
Marsha has not yet shown a big interest in toys. She will chase a ball (or more accurately chase the dog chasing the ball). We believe MARSHA will be an active pup who will require a good balance of physical and mental stimulation to make her the best family member she can be. She loves her food and treats, while she also loves to hear “Good Girl” so training should be LOADS of fun!
MARSHA will be fine in a single dog home or with a canine friend. If you think you are ready for the challenge of a border collie puppy, we’d love to hear from you. She loves her food and treats, and to hear “Good Girl,” so training should be LOADS of fun!
MARSHA 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 MARSHA, 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.
MARSHA is being fostered north of Corning in Tehama County, CA.
