Miss Allie LOVES people, especially the ones who pet her or toss toys with her. Allie is always ready for a game of playing with her toys. She's pretty good at bringing things back to you, but she is easily distracted.
Allies previous owner had some health issues, then fell and broke her arm. Allie needed a person or family that could keep her busy, so she was turned over to rescue.
Allie is a sweet, happy-natured dog that really wants to be with her person. She tries very hard to please.
Allie was raised around other border collies who ran and played 'herding each other' as their main source of entertainment.
She gets along great with other male dogs and will sometimes give a little growl when other female dogs get in her face. She doesn't bite them, she just tells them to back away.
Allie has strong herding instinct. She will stare at the cats she has met, but so far, hasn't hurt one.
We did have Allies hips x-rayed and her x-rays indicated that she might have some arthritis in the future. We recommend keeping her muscles up and on joint supplements. She shows no signs of having any issues now.
Allie is crate trained, housebroken, walks nice on a leash unless she sees something exciting like sheep.
She's up to date on her shots, heartworm preventative and flea and tick control.
To start the adoption process, please fill out an application and then contact Sylvia at SylviasPets@aol.com. All potential adopters are required to have a home visit prior to placement of one of our rescues. Allie's adoption fee is $300, and we offer a two-week trial period when you adopt one of our dogs.
Thank you for considering a rescue!
