WALNUT ——male–(AKA Wally) says: “I like to tell everything that I am the BIGGEST puppy, but really I’m only a little bit bigger than the others. I love toys a lot, but I love my foster mom even more. I am happy to lay around on the couch with her for a long time—well, a long time in border collie puppy minutes! She tells me that I am Mr. Personality, even though I don’t show it in the first five minutes of meeting someone. I think a puppy should check people out before giving lots of kisses & adorable wiggles. Toys, tunnels, treats are my three faves, but pleasing my people will be right up there at the top of my list, once we get close, & I’ll make you proud of me.”
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.
WALNUT is started on his puppy vaccines, wormed, and microchipped. He is also on flea & tick and heartworm prevention. 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 WALNUT, 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.
