My story

My name is Isabella, I am an 5 year old Pit/Border Collie Mix, and it shows! Not only in my markings, but my personality as well. I have had a bit of a rocky past, so I push limits a lot (as if having the Border Collie Personality on top of Pit Bull Stubborness wasn't enough). I am a rescue transfer, I was brought up from California to a rescue, and adopted out. That adoption fell apart after just two months (they didn't even give me the 3 day, 3 week, 3 month standard rules) I was just starting to feel comfortable and open up. I have been at the rescue for almost 3 months, and starting to let my true colors show. I like to herd things, but a little too over zealous about it. I show herding traits towards cats, but I dislike them so much that it totally takes over and my herd skills are lost. On leash I have been known to clear coffee tables with my body to get to one. My rescue was told that I muzzle punched a dog in training and they didn't let it go any further to determine aggression or play. I play well with a few of the dogs here at the rescue through the fence. I am showing way too much interest in the local ferret so small animals in general is probably a bad idea for me. I haven't growled at them when I have my toy near the fence and I show positive interactions, or just sit and watch them. I love sitting with you once I get calmed down and just absorb attention. The rescue suspects I would love laying in bed with my new family. Over all I am a good girl but with my two breeds, I have a TON of energy. A family that likes to go camping, hiking, and is just generally active would be ideal for me. Because I am still learning leash and other manners small kids would probably not be recommended. I jump and climb all over them, although I am gentle and have never purposely hurt one. Is there anyone out there that can give me the forever home I so deserve? I have so much love to give.
