Facts about IZZY

  • Breed: Border Collie
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Beautiful Izzy is an approximately 4 year old purebred border collie.

Izzy was surrendered to animal control in Utah because she was chasing people and nipping at children. A fenced yard would have prevented this. Izzy is fine in a 4 foot high fence.

This is a fairly high drive dog that would excel at agility or possibly herding. She is fast and athletic, weighing about 30 pounds.

Izzy is housetrained and is now crate trained, and her foster mom is working on her house manners. She does know 'sit'.

Izzy gets along with most other dogs unless it's feeding time. Then she gets snappy with the other dogs. At meal times, Izzy's foster mom puts her in her crate and that's where she eats. Problem solved.

If you are interested in adopting Izzy you must have a fenced yard and a plan for keeping her exercised and mentally stimulated.

Izzy's adoption fee is $200 and includes spay, vaccinations, microchip, collar and ID tag.

About Idaho Domestic Animal Welfare Group

About Our Rescue Group...

IDAWG, or the Idaho Domestic Animal Welfare Group, is a non profit 501(c)(3) corporation based in Nampa, Idaho. IDAWG has been in existence since June 2000 and is staffed entirely with volunteers. IDAWG supports southern Idaho animal shelters as needed, and also helps private citizens rehome their dogs. Sometimes this involves transporting or organizing transports for dogs or cats, or sometimes birds, to rescues or permanent homes in adjoining cities and states. IDAWG also offers financial assistance to senior citizens and others needing help paying for spay/neuter services for their companion animals.

Come Meet Our Pets...

IDAWG is located in Nampa, Idaho, about 25 miles west of Boise. IDAWG is not a facility open to the public. The dogs, cats, and rabbits are fostered at individuals' homes. Appointments must be made in advance and only after the application process has been completed.
