found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, and up to date with shots.
JEN is a darling two year old female border collie. She is tiny, weighing only 25 lbs. JEN is a smooth coated, classically and beautifully marked, little girl. JEN was an excellent mom to the seven Black and White Ball puppies recently fostered here at NCBCRA. The puppies were all adopted last month and so now it's JEN's turn to find her forever home.
JEN has been an outstanding guest at her foster home. She is housebroken and has not chewed on inappropriate items (though she really likes deer antler chew treats!) She is not a digger and she has rarely barked. She crates very nicely and is quiet in her crate for sleeping in overnight. While she moves rather coyly about the house, JEN is actually very agile. She surprised the dickens out of her foster mom one day when she jumped up onto a table, much like a cat. She is thus small, but springy! Speaking of cats, JEN shows no interest in the cats at her foster home.
JEN is a shy girl with people and needs to find a home where her owner will build her confidence and take time to encourage her participation with people. JEN is attentive to her foster parents and when we are settled in and with no commotion about she will come in close for a nice petting. Generally though, she’s not inclined to seek attention from us and may trot off a bit when we get up and move about. JEN is more quickly at ease with her canine pack mates, doing the regular dog sniffing thing and seemingly relaxed with others dogs about.
All in all, Jen is a sweet little girl who will do best if her new owner will take time to build her trust. It’s evident she wants to relate to her people as she enjoys the love and closeness of being petted and snuggled. We anticipate she will however present an initial challenge to her new owner to establish this bond. Patience by her new owner will pay off handsomely in the form of a loyal and loving companion. (PS - JEN loves to ride in the car so she may be a great traveling companion as well.)
JEN is micro-chipped, spayed, heart worm negative and on preventative, and up to date on vaccinations. If you have an approved Northern California Border Collie Rescue & Adoptions Adoption Application (http://norcalbcrescue.org/adopt_info.html) and wish to enquire about JEN, 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.
JEN is being fostered in Loomis in Placer County, California.
