Say “hello” to PANCAKE, a 2-year-old former mama dog, whose beautiful puppies have all found their forever homes. Now it’s Pancake’s turn to find her forever home. Pancake’s favorite part of being a mom to her pups was the stage in which she could play with them. It was as if she turned back into a puppy herself. And we’ve seen that playful enthusiasm in her interactions with the other adult dogs & puppies in her foster home. She is also very kind. When another dog or puppy in her foster home seems unsure or in need of support & comfort, Pancake is right there to help. When she was in the vet clinic for her spay, she checked in on the other dogs in the kennel, quietly “talking” with them & leaning toward them. The whole hospital staff loved her.
PANCAKE has nice house manners. She is quiet; in fact, we’ve never heard a peep out of her. She is crate-trained, both for sleeping & for riding in the car, & she has never had an accident in her foster home. When she came into rescue, she had obviously never been on a leash, & “pancaked” on the ground. While she is not brilliantly leash-trained, she walks nicely on a leash & is utterly comfortable with one now. Pancake lives in a quiet, semi-rural neighborhood in her current foster home, so she doesn’t have experience with a more city-like atmosphere with its noises & lots of people. She might have to get used to that kind of environment slowly. She is an active dog, but not crazily energetic like most young border collies & border collie mixes. She enjoys walks, & playing in the backyard, & seems content with that. Pancake is treat-motivated, but she hasn’t had a chance to learn about toys. Treats will help make training easier. While Pancake is lovely with other dogs & pups, she is too keen about cats & chickens, so we want to place her in a cat & chicken-free home.
PANCAKE weighs about 50#.
