REDBUD ——female—(AKA Buddy) says: “I would love to be your best friend! That’s a good thing to know about me right away. I love everything: people, other animals, treats! Toys are super-dooper, & even though I’m a bit fluffy so seem like I might not be tuff, don’t be fooled: I love to play tug! It’s my favorite game right now. Our foster mom gave us some tunnels to play in, & wow, am I fast running through them. I hear there is a sport called agility that has tunnels & that you can tug when you do something really smart & good. I might like to do that someday. Like all of my brothers & sisters, I am so adorable, but I have a very special, upside-down, white V on my nose. If you take me home, you can figure out all of the things that letter might stand for.”
Arriving in June, the six Cottonwood kids joined the pack in their foster family after a typical puppy quarantine. Soon they were running, playing, and within minutes figuring out the dog door and exploring the great outdoors. The garden, the big fountain, the cats, the tortoises, the chickens, and the other border collies all provide great adventures. Their foster mom and other visitors quickly won these puppies’ hearts & trust. At about 10-weeks-old, these Border collie/Aussie/McNab mix pups sure show all the characteristics typical of these breeds: smarts, speed, need to have things to do, & lots of energy (can we say “drive”?) They all have easy-care coats. The pups sleep together in an x-pen & eat all their meals in individual crates. They are learning to use newspapers in their pen (as well as the yard when they’re all outside) so should housebreak easily when consistently taken outside. They love treats & toys, which will make training fun.
REDBUD 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 REDBUD, 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.
