Sweet little Dakota is an ten month old fun-loving, wicked smart pup. She is 46 pounds and full grown. She is potty trained and doggie door trained. She knows sit, touch, and gives a high five. We're still working on stay and come, and she kinda thinks the leash means lay down and give you the belly. She has her moments of running around acting crazy, might bowl you over a little, but also isn't opposed to being a lounge lizard. She showed no interest in cats, but was not tested around one running loose. Dakota still has some puppy traits and does like to chew so best to make sure she has appropriate toys. She likes everyone including children, but might knock little ones over. She shares food, water and toys with joy, loves to lie on the bed, and snuggles with her people. Dakota lets me bathe her, clean her ears and teeth, and doesn't mind being brushed either. She is a very patient girl. Sometimes she is almost overly submissive which may be the result of abuse, but has shown tremendous progress. Dakota is valley fever positive and will require fluconizole (medication) twice a day for at least a year, per the vet. She will also need to have blood work done to check this periodically. Other than that she is super excited to meet and become a part of her forever loving home.

About Arizona Border Collie Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

The purpose and main function of Arizona Border Collie Rescue (ABCR) is to promote humane treatment through rescue, rehabilitation, education and the re-homing of neglected, abandoned and unwanted border collies.

Our Adoption Process...

We have a 4-step adoption process to make sure you find the right dog for your family.
First you fill out an application, and then you will have a phone interview to find out just what type of dog you are looking for and if you are familiar with the breed. Next you will be scheduled for a home visit to better assess your needs and the appropriate activity level and age of a potential dog adoption. Last but most important you will be scheduled to meet the Border Collies that would suit you and your family the best for a long happy life together.
