NORA is our blue-eyed, smooth-coated beauty. At 14 pounds, she exudes confidence. This girl is also curious, adventurous, & is as happy to play on her own as she is to be involved in everyone else’s play. She is always the first one to go on adventures, but when called, she turns on a dime & runs back to her foster mom, well, most of the time. Nora figures out quickly what it takes to get what she wants. You do something with her & she says “I’ve got it” & tries to do it again to get rewarded. Her favorite games are tug & tug & tug & then go chase one of her siblings. Even though Nora is adventurous, she is also tuned in to her foster mom. NORA loves people, gets along great with other puppies and adult dogs, but will need a cat-free environment. She is too interested and overexcited when she sees felines.
Arriving to our rescue on March 17th, the St. Paddy’s Day puppies range from 13 to 17 lbs. With their bat ears, slim bodies, and cat-like feet we believe them to be McNab / border collie mixes. These puppies are coming PARTIALLY SPONSORED. Their adoption fees will be $125 (plus the $75 spay / neuter deposit (that’s a $300 sponsored reduction). The six puppies were split into two foster homes, with Patrick, Quinn, and Kelly in one home while Owen, Nora, and Erin are in another.
NORA is one of the smallest in the litter & has finer bones. She is fast & athletic, & has lots of energy. Activities like agility, flyball, nosework, etc will expose her to the physical activity she will need as well as the mental stimulation to make her the best girl she could be. Nora likes every person she’s met, even the staff at the vet’s office. They were amazed with how nicely she, Erin, and Owen sat while waiting for their exams. She is making progress on her potty habits, and will get it with the individual attention of her forever home. Her crate training is helping, and she sits for her meals and treats. NORA travels quietly in her crate.
If you’re looking for a fun, “can-do’ training partner, who is equally motivated by toys & treats, NORA might be your girl.
NORA 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 NORA , 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.
NORA is being fostered north of Sacramento, CA.
