REN IS A COURTESY LISTING WHO LIVES WITH HIS FOSTER IN PADUCAH, KENTUCKY. CBBCR OFFERS COURTESY LISTINGS AS A COMMUNITY SERVICE. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THIS DOG, PLEASE CONTACT THE FOSTER DIRECTLY.
Ren is a high energy, smart, and fun purebred Border Collie. She is black and white, and we estimate her at 2 years of age , and she weighs about 40 lbs. As far as Border Collie energy ranking, she is a “working” dog. She is extremely fast, determined and dominant. She needs an owner who will be very active with her, in dog sports or herding, for at least a couple of hours per day. Ren needs an alpha handler, as she tries to run the house. She will require a fenced yard, as she has a high prey drive. She loves to play with other dogs, and she and my other bc (Siri) spend all day playing. Ren tends to be very rough and dominant, and we are working on her becoming gentler.
I work from a home office, and we go out every couple of hours, and chase around. Then I go back to work and they play like crazy, crash, and play again. It’s a good thing they do not bark much! Ren is very dominant with other dogs, due to her personality and herdiness . I’ve had her about 5 weeks , and she is doing well in the house, however she still has accidents from time to time and can inappropriately chew on things . Since it has been so hot here, and/or pouring rain most of weekends, we’ve not done much outside at least for very long. I’ve taken her sheep herding to be tested, and she has a ton of potential (eye and self-confidence). It was a joy to watch her work the very first time she was on sheep! I hope to take her out to our kennel club soon, to tr y her on some agility equipment, however I have all the confidence she is a natural. She is attention, toy and food motivated, built for sports, and unafraid of anything. She is an inside dog, and crate trained . However, when she decides it’s time to get up in the morning, you will get up. She has a very loud bark, and we normally get up around 5:30AM. Although Ren is very active in the house, she sometimes has an off switch , and will snuggle with me on the couch. She follows me everywhere when she is not playing with Siri ! She is spayed, u p to date on shots, heartworm (4 dx test), on heartworm/flea preventative, a nd has been chipped.
Due to Ren’s personality and energy level, she would not do well in a home with an older or very dominant dog, children, and/or someone who will let her run the house.
Ren is being fostered in Paducah, KY (western KY) by Away to Me BC Rescue . We are approximately 3 hours southeast of St. Louis, and approximately 2 hours northwest of Nashville. For more information on Ren, please contact Chris at firstname.lastname@example.org
