Jolene is approximately 16-18 months old spayed female (She was born Jan, 11th, 2015). She has a history of built up anxiety, separation anxiety, and will need a home that will provide her activity that she needs. Jolene does fine out in the house alone. She might need some work with leaving her in a crate if you leave the house while she is in it. She does not mind sleeping in her crate at night with the door shut. She would do well in a home where she is able to do Agility, Flyball, Disc Dog, or Dock Diving. A fenced in backyard would be idea for playtime. She loves playing tug with humans and the other dog she lives with now. She loves to cuddle and give kisses. Jolene tolerates children but prefers a kid free home. Although she will slowly warm up to males, she prefers females. She loves going for long walks on the leash but is prone to pull while around vehicles. She has a strong urge to herd moving vehicles so you have to be alert and hold her leash tightly. With a little work she can be distracted from moving cars with high value treats and toys. Jolene knows basic commands, and very interested in playing ball. You can tell that she loves to learn and have a "job" to do. Loud noises, yelling, or things being dropped startle Jolene. When Jolene gets scared she will go and hide in her crate or under the bed, but eventually will come back out very slowly and cautiously. She currently lives with another male Border Collie. Someone with patience and love will be the perfect home for her. The current owner and foster would love to keep in touch with Jolene and see her progress. She has even offered to dog sit whenever the new owner needs to go out of town.
