Lady is a 6 year old female BC who came to us from Northern Illinois. She was relinquished to a shelter because her owners did not have time for her. Well, little Lady, we have time for you! She is being fostered in Springfield, Illinois, where she lives with other dogs and cats. She does chase the cats, so it may be better (for the cats) if there are none in the home. Lady attended our recent event at Purina Farms and did very well! She is a little cautious meeting new people but will quickly warm up to you!
Lady has a beautiful smile on her face most of the time now, she comes when called, she has taken her potty training to heart and generally is a sweet funny girl.
She gives border collie hugs, she loves her walks, and is so happy when praised or given treats for being such a good girl! Lady is a cuddlier She loves laying on the bed or couch next to me belly up getting a little petting and love.
She has really calmed down, and while she is still high energy, she is good if she can go out and run a few hours in the backyard each day. She responds well if I jump up and play bow at her, she will jump and zoom around me, I really think she would be a great dancer with training!
Lady's perfect home would be with someone who is active, has a big backyard for her to run in, and was looking for a sweet dog to walk run and play with!
Lady is doing well, very happy, and sweet. Lady has settled into a routine, she wakes up, eats her breakfast with our other dogs and has a quick run in the backyard prior to breakfast. After breakfast she lays back down and rests with the other dogs while we sleep, then gets up with us, goes for another run in the backyard. And goes for a walk with all the dogs and my husband. From there home, a few more runs in the backyard, playing with Lily and Honeybear, hanging in the garden with me if I'm home, coming up to give kisses and love happy smiles all day, getting petted , rolling over for belly rubs. She is still very active and would spend more time running but it is just too hot! She loves getting treats from her Kong and is very adept at figuring the best way to get them out of the toy.
Lady also loves to be in our front window, watching the yard barking at things going by, and jumping up and down off the window seat area. Lady also loves to swim and is very funny biting at the water and paddling! Lady is very sweet I got my first Border Collie hug with a kiss today from her!
Lady is timid around new people, and takes a while to trust. She is very active and needs a good outlet for her energy. I feel that with the right training she might be great for agility, in addition my sister visited and took Lady running and she was awesome running with my sister.
Lady is very sweet and deserves a great home. For an active person who likes to hike or run or agility she would be great! Right now she does fine with two walks a day, running in the back yard, playing with our dogs and lots of love. She needs her own person to love and give her devotion too!
