Scarlett came to us with her sister after landing in a shelter. They and six other dogs were seized by animal control, and then surrendered by their owner. Scarlett was very emaciated when she arrived in rescue. We can only guess what her life was like, but in spite of all she's been through, she is one happy, sweet girl! She wants nothing more than to be near her people getting lots and lots of attention.

We were told that Scarlett was a border collie/heeler mix. That may be part of her heritage, but is by no means the whole story. Whatever breed she is, she is sweet, friendly, energetic and responsive to people. She's between one and two years old, but acts younger. She's always happy and ready to go, but she's calmer than her sister. Her leash manners have gotten quite good, but she could use a little work on her jumping on people. She would benefit from regular exercise, but she settles very nicely in the house.

Scarlett loves people. Her foster home is all adult. When she met some young children on a walk, she was interested but a bit tentative. She may do better with older children. She's good with the other dogs in her foster home and barely pays attention to the resident cats. She does show a lot of interest in critters that may be burrowing under the ground, so she will probably dig if left unattended outside.

Scarlett is picking up on house training very quickly, but she needs just a bit more time before she can be considered 100% reliable. She's also very inquisitive and could probably find some mischief to get into, so she should be supervised or crated until she's proven that she knows the rules in a new home. Happily, she listens very well and is good in her crate. She only fusses in her crate when her people are active elsewhere in the house. She wants to be part of the action. She also rides well in a car, though she needs a bit of coaxing to get in.

Scarlett would be a great addition to most homes. She's quick to learn and very eager to please. She would do well as a companion to another dog, but she would also be fine as an only dog. Scarlett is spayed, micro-chipped and up to date on vaccinations and preventatives.

All potential adopters are required to have a home visit prior to placement of one of our rescues. Scarlett'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!

Scarlett's adoption is now pending.
