found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.
See Jenni's video here:
Jenni is a 5 month old tri-colored border collie/Australian shepherd mix, a very special girl with a heart of gold. She’s good in the house, very affectionate, biddable, and just downright cute.
Jenni was found as a stray in a small, rural town where herding dogs are common, so she could have come from working parents. She does
show pretty strong herding instincts with fast-moving dogs and will “bump” the back of your heels sometimes when walking, so we do not recommend her for homes with young children.
She gets along well with all of her foster siblings, loves to play, and rides well in the car. She does well when confined once she learns the routine, in fact Jenni sleeps in the laundry room with just a 3-foot gate and lots of stuff on the counters. She knows she’s supposed to stay there so even if the gate falls down or is just gently propped in the doorway, she rarely makes an attempt to get out.
Jenni finds cats interesting (actually, she finds MOST things interesting) so she’ll need supervision around them at first, but she is living in a house with 3 cats and is doing just fine. She is also doing well on her housetraining and has shown very good house manners for a teething puppy. Her only indoor mischief involves her passion for Kleenex and toilet paper—just her way of reminding us to keep the bathroom door closed when she’s loose. ;-) She
likes toys but doesn’t de-stuff them, and she enjoys playing tug with other dogs or with people.
Jenni is exhibiting a medium-high energy level and an inquisitive mind that is easily bored. If she is left to her own devices outdoors, she is likely to amuse herself by digging and turning plants into toys, so gardeners please keep that in mind. We would like to repeat that this is a pup that needs something to do or she will get into trouble.
We would love to find a home for Jenni with someone who will involve her in challenging mental and physical activities such as agility, fly ball, herding, rally, nose work or something similar. She’s quite agile and graceful for one so young and can easily keep up with the big dogs in the yard. She is toy and food motivated, and likes to tug.
This little girl is an eager and attentive pupil, and works really well for food treats and affection. She already knows "sit" and "wait" or "stay," and she’s quickly figuring out “down,” “shake hands” and “roll over.” She will is a quick study and very fun to train!
Jenni currently weighs 30 pounds (5/28/15). When we first received her she was urinating submissively when people approached her, but that has diminished substantially as she has gained confidence.
If you’re interested in adopting Jenni, please email Joan at email@example.com for an application. We will get back to you as soon as possible. If approved to adopt, you must be willing to come to southwest Idaho to meet Jenni.
