Tillie is a six year old female, spayed, black and white, Border Collie mix. She has short hair and a smooth coat. She weighs about 35 pounds and is energetic. Tillie is housebroken. She responds very well when called and is very treat focused. She will make a great walking companion. She loves to be petted and snuggles. She is not a barker.
Tillie loves to explore open areas, like a back yard. Therefore, a fenced back yard to run and explore, and play with toys, is recommended. She is a strong alpha toward other dogs and can be aggressive, at least initially, toward other dogs. It is recommended that Tillie be in a home as the only dog and with older kids, if kids are present. She ignores cats.
She sits when asked to 'sit' and does understand 'no'. She does need some leash training – her nose leads her to all the smells when walking and she is enthusiastic about checking out any and all odors her nose senses.
She loves to ride in a vehicle and gets very excited when it is time to leave the house for any reason.
Tillie is crate trained and goes right into the crate with a treat. She settles down nicely and is quiet in the crate. She sleeps the entire night and does not stir. She loves to be petted and snuggles. Vaccinations are currently up to date. She has tested negative for heartworm.
