WILLIE = FUN! Our four month, 18 pound boy puts fun into everything he does. Whether it’s playing, romping, eating or cuddling he enjoys it to the hilt. He was even good at bath time and did crazy zoomies all over the house when set free. He does enjoy water; the dirtier the better! Lest we not forget belly rubs which he L-O-V-E-S!
WILLIE’s DNA results are in, and he is a mix of border collie, Australian cattle dog, Australian shepherd and American eskimo with a dash of toy fox terrier. His fur is long, white and fluffy with a thick undercoat that will require lots of brushing and grooming.
WILLIE is doing great on his potty training. He is now sleeping quietly through the night in his crate but is ready to go out and do his business when you appear. If you are a late sleeper he will summon you that it’s time! He has learned “crate” and goes in willingly (knowing he is going to get a treat and a toy). WILLIE also is learning to sit and his recall is pretty good, though he can get distracted exploring and locating items he can carry around and bring with him when he comes back inside. WILLIE is somewhat vocal but if occupied and engaged does not seem over the top. He gets along well with all the dogs, wants to be best buds with the kitty, but mostly loves people. He gives the best puppy kisses, enjoys being picked up and cuddled, and will climb up on your lap if you let him.
A couple minutes ago he came to my chair for pets, and then promptly sacked out on the floor right next to me. WILLIE is a true delight and will make a great companion for an active family that will make him part of their everyday activities.
WILLIE 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 him, 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.
WILLIE is being fostered in Corning in Tehama County, California.
