My story

๐Ÿถ ๐Ÿ• TOOTSIE Female 6 months, 25 lbs & AVAILABLE โ€“ check out more photos and see the rest of our dogs on our website -- https://norcalbcrescue.org/available-dogs/our-dogs/ ๐Ÿ• ๐Ÿถ

Tootsie is a 25#, 6-month-old spayed border collie mix, who has a lovely, gentle temperament. She has a beautiful sleek coat. Like her brother Sarge, she is active & playful. She particularly likes to play with her brother. She might like a home with another playful dog. She is friendly & social with people, but will offer an alert bark when someone she doesn't know comes to call. She is easy-going, & is a little bit on the soft side. Tootsie likes to please & doesn't like to think she's made her human unhappy.

Tootsie is smart & learns quickly. She likes everyone she meets, & likes to play with toys with her person or with other dogs. She is both treat, toy (Frisbees, balls, chew toys, etc.), & praise-motivated. She is as happy playing with a person as she is another dog, but we think that's because she has had her brother as her constant companion for her whole life. She does things independently without Sarge, or with her foster mom, so no worries about splitting up these two pups. She will make a wonderful companion/pal dog for her new family.

Tootsie rides nicely in a crate in the car. She sleeps in a pen with her brother & settles immediately for the night. In her foster home, she uses the doggy door reliably to go outside to potty.

TOOTSIE is micro-chipped, spayed, heartworm negative and on preventative, and up-to-date on vaccinations. If you have an approved Northern California Border Collie Rescue & Adoptions Adoption Application (https://norcalbcrescue.org/adoption/adoption-application/) and wish to inquire about TOOTSIE, please email us at Adoptions@norcalbcrescue.org. If you have an approved adoption application with Border Collie Rescue of Northern California let us know and we will request it be forwarded to us for consideration.

TOOTSIE is fostering in Live Oak in Sutter County, CA.

Why adoption is a great option

TOOTSIE, a Corning Border Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie for sale in Corning, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Corning.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Corning already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Corning breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Border Collie breeders who help with Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Corning paves the way for another one to be saved.
