Mercy is one of the "Boston Nine" puppies. At 4 1/2 months and 25 lbs, this Border Collie/Lab mix girl is a brainy, bouncy, bossy ball of energy! Mercy is as intelligent as she is active. From sun-up to sundown, she is constantly looking for something to keep her busy! Learning new skills, chasing her foster brother, and playing with squeaky toys are at the top of her list of favorite things to do! She has learned an impressive 15 commands so far, and is learning more every day! She doesn't care much for snuggles, but is happiest when she is just in the same room with her person.
Mercy loves to roughhouse with her foster brother and steals his toys at every opportunity, but is also sensitive to her much older foster sister's "no play" cues. Mercy has a very strong prey drive and has shown an intense dislike of the neighbor cats, so she would do best in a home with a fenced yard and no cats. Also due to the prey and herding drive, and her tendency to nip, she needs to be in a home without small children.
Mercy is an excellent candidate for agility, obedience, freestyle, or other competitive endeavors. She is crate trained, fully housebroken, and is up to date on vaccines and heartworm/ flea and tick control.
