Izzy is a smooth coat, Border Collie mix. She is 11-13 weeks old and was found hiding on a farm with her sister in rural Virginia. She started off as the more shy one, but after spending the week at a high school socializing with the kids, she quickly came out of her shell. She is a spunky girl showing signs of confidence both with people and dogs. She seems interested in playing with toys and is fast chasing the resident adult dogs at her foster's home. She will settle down and snuggle in your arms but she is all-in with wrestling and tug-a-war when it comes to being near her siblings.
Izzy has a good appetite and has done well with potty training when given limited reign of the house. When outside, she has accepted the leash although needs more training to curb the pulling. When in a fenced in area she doesn't try to run off but will stay close to the adult dogs or people. Did you notice the heart shape on her nose?
Her mother looks to be a traditional smooth coat 25-30 lb Border Collie and the father is rumored to be a Blue Heeler. She was rescued with three siblings. The other girl who has been adopted had similar markings and the boys show more of their father's influence. Picture included of the siblings for reference.
