From the Foster: Yvette's favorite toys, activities, etc: She LOVES Going for walks, trying to chase squirrels/bunnies/cats, eating, getting pet, playing with other dogs (although she is too rambunctious for seniors or much smaller dogs), enjoys bouncing a racquetball and chewing on some toys.

Yvette is very sweet but still mostly a puppy and a high-energy breed, so her forever family must actively want to spend quality time with her, giving her attention and A LOT of exercise. She will do best with a securely fenced yard and a canine playmate of similar energy level; otherwise, she needs at least 2 long walks a day and active playtime. Without a lot of exercise and interaction, Yvette will get bored and when she's bored, she gets destructive.

She sleeps through the night in her crate and stays in her crate for up to 8 hours while we're at work without messing in it. However, she needs regular and frequent letting out when we're home. Yvette is very smart and in less than a week has learned "sit", "wait", "shake", "down", and "off". She does well with lots of positive reinforcement and redirection.  She will resource-guard high-value treats like beef ears but can be given regular biscuits at the same time as other dogs. We feed Yvette in a separate area from our resident dogs, just to avoid potential issues. She will bark occasionally at passers-by or other dogs but does not bark excessively.

Overall, Yvette seems like a typical border collie mix - smart, sweet, energetic, and playful.

 

All dogs are in individual foster homes throughout the Twin Cities.
