SLOOPY is a smooth coat female tri color Border collie mix who weighs in at about 35 lbs. She is a gentle soul who loves people and other dogs. She is on the submissive side, earning the nicknames “Flip-Flop” and “Roll Over Beethoven” due to her penchant for rolling on her back at every opportunity. Building her confidence is something we are working on. She has been an awesome guest.
SLOOP loves the freedom to run around the backyard, preferably with another dog to chase and she loves to play ball. She’ll chase, retrieve and run back enthusiastically and ready for the next throw…on her terms. She started well with “drop” but of late enjoys being rather coy in playing keep away from dad. He lets SLOOPY have her fun. When she’s ready the cycle starts all over again. We have also taken note that SLOOPY is quite agile and quick thinking. She was chasing our girl Sissy around when Sissy stopped short. Instead of crashing into her, SLOOP took to the air and flew right over her and continued on her way without missing a beat.
SLOOPY would do well in just about any home, but caution should be used around small children due to her jumping. She wants to be the cat’s buddy, but the cats are not trusting of her. If you do have cats they should be dog savvy.
The SLOOPSTER is house trained (no accidents in 6 weeks at her foster home) and took to crate training very quickly. She is comfortable going to her crate on her own. SLOOPY lives to please so training should be a lot of fun. As an added bonus in the training department she loves food and treats. We are working on not letting her jump on people but she does so gently. She’ll take getting as close to her people as she can in any way she can. SLOOPY enjoys couch cuddle time and often can be found at foster dad’s or mom’s side looking for pets or just hanging out in dad’s office in hopes of getting his attention – at which she succeeds constantly.
