At just under 4-months-old (born 1/27/2022), WREN is a fun, energetic, and unflappable girl of about 20 pounds. WREN loves to explore on her own, and mostly stays close by her humans when outside. While she likes spending time with her people, she also enjoys her foster siblings, chasing and romping around the yard together.
WREN is quite the jumper and climber; she can climb any wire crate or pen. It’s normal to find her sitting atop our double-stacked crates in her pen area. She is not above using her siblings as a springboard to accomplish her “lofty” goals. She is both agile and athletic but still displays the clumsiness of the puppy she is, especially when she’s tired. Activities like agility or nosework may be something to look into for the mental and physical activities she will need to be the best she can be.
WREN desires a family who will spend time with her. She is learning to fetch, and her recall is 95% solid. However, she is a puppy, and during training sessions, she can become distracted or bored. She does best with short training sessions several times a day with positive reinforcement. WREN is always willing to try new things and is very curious.
WREN is doing well with her crate and potty training. She sleeps soundly through the night. When let out in the morning, she will relieve herself on command with positive reinforcement. Wren has not been left to run free in the house. She is content in her crate for down time, to eat, and sleep.
We can only guess how large WREN will be as an adult or what breed she may be. We don’t really know what her breed mix is, but she does have a border collie heart and intelligence. WREN is looking for an active family who will include her in ALL their activities. It would be a plus if the family has herding dog experience, experience with puppies, and / or a well-balanced four-legged friend at home to continue teaching her the ropes.
WREN 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 WREN, 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.
WREN is being fostered north of Sacramento, CA.
