Nessie is an approximately 3 year old, mellow, shepherd/border collie mix. She found herself at a local shelter having been an outside dog her entire life; Fuzzy Pawz knew that she would need to learn some house manners if she was ever going to live the life of luxury. And boy are we glad we placed her in a foster home – Nessie is 60 pounds of LOVE!
Nessie is learning the ropes of being indoors; she is house trained, had to learn to walk on tile floors, conquered stairs, sleeps quietly through the night (crated or not). Nessie can be unsure of new situations but is learning that new experiences can be good; car rides go to fun places, strangers give scratches and pets, dogs want to play, vets give treats. Nessie is content doing just about anything, from lounging around during TV time to going for walks to supervising lawn mowing.
Nessie’s ideal home: One where her people are patient and gentle with training. A home where her people are around most of the day or where she can tag along at work. Nessie loves being around her people and receiving attention, scratches, belly rubs. If the family has kids, Nessie would probably do well with older, calm children (10 and up please). She is smart and listens well so it would be great if her people would stimulate her mentally with obedience classes, tricks, and/or games.
The shelter said she can be food possessive around other dogs but this hasn’t been observed in her foster home.
Nessie is spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated.
The sky is the limit with this girl; she bonds deeply with her people and is eager to learn. If you are looking for a sweet and loyal pup, Nessie is your girl!
