ROB is an active, fun loving puppy of three months. He is mostly black with white on his chest and feet and a short to medium soft coat. Rob weighs in at 25 lbs. ROB’s mom and dad both were border collies and it shows. The boy is full of energy and loves to run and play. He doesn’t care if he is the chaser or the chasee. ROB really enjoys playing with other dogs and will need a home with a big brother or sister from whom to learn the ropes and be a friendly and playful companion.
ROB understands some basic commands. He knows sit and crate. He also has decent recall for a three month old puppy, which is a good thing because he is a roamer and covers the entire yard when he is out (over an acre). ROB is house and crate trained, sleeping quietly through the night. He willingly goes in his crate, settles nicely, and sits before coming out. He will also let you know when he has to go potty. He will get antsy and cry in his crate, and during free time he will go to the door and alert us by scratching at the door. ROB does travel well.
ROB loves people and gets along well with, and wants to play with the other dogs all day long. Cats do not seem to be a problem but we don’t know what he would do if put in a position to “chase.” His best bud is 4 month old Baron (the red in the pictures also posting today). They wrestle, they chase each other, they chase balls, and they scamper around the yard like they own the place. We are looking for a family with no small children and with border collie / herding dog experience due to his lineage. ROB will also need lots of activity to stimulate mind and body, perhaps agility, Treibball, or nose work to keep him sharp and engaged.
ROB 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 ROB, 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.
ROB is being fostered in Corning in Tehama County, California.
