Fiona is a beautiful Border Collie/Aussie mix female that was sadly found as a stray. Scared and confused in the shelter, all she did was shake in fear. With help from staff, Fiona has come a long way in trusting. Now safe in our rescue program and in a foster home, she is blossoming into such a fantastic girl! Great with all, crated at night, walks on a leash. Could make ideal, running, hiking, camping "anything" outdoors buddy! Border Collie's need structure, activity and mental stimulation. Please familiarize yourself with the breed before applying to make sure this is the breed suitable for your home and life style.

Adoption donation $350, includes her spay, rabies, dhpp vaccine, bordatella vaccine, microchip, worming, frontline, heartworm test, heartgard,

We never say a dog is housebroken, a new routine, environment, food, all lends itself very well to having a accident in the home. Please take any new dog regardless of age and act as if they are not housebroken.
Barking/Digging: Any dog can be or become a barker, or digger if the behavior is allowed and not corrected. A dog can act one way in one home and a completely different way in another.
Whining/Anxiety: The first few days in a new home, a adopted dog can become VERY upset, anxious and vocal. Every home they go into, there is a adjustment period that will need to be understood. We suggest "test"runs when you leave the dog alone. Make is short segments first and increase the time. This way the dog knows you are always coming back. Make sure they have something to keep themselves occupied with while you are away.
BITING: Please do not EVER put your face in a newly adopted dogs face or take food/toys our of their mouth or position. This is the surest and fastest way to get bit. Especially children.
Adopting a dog takes time, patience and a commitment from his/hers new family, please be prepared for ALL the ups and downs when bringing home a wonderful dog in need. :)
