Meet Bootsy!

Say hi to Bootsy, a Border Collie mix who has been spayed, microchipped, is up to date on immunizations, and weighs about 43 pounds. A quick learner, she mastered the doggie door the first day here! She has also earned full run of the house privileges after being taught that outside and potty go hand in hand. She is not an overtly vocal dog, but will bark when someone enters the driveway or when our neighbors go to the mailbox with their dogs. Deer in the yard also elicit barking!

Bootsy is somewhat skittish, and does not come when called individually, but she does come in with the pack when the doggie door is opened. She also runs with the pack when I give them the “outside” cue. Her preference is to be outside, but she seems to be warming up to being in the house. She is very affectionate, but on her terms. I am guessing that her aloofness comes from being one of nine dogs at her previous home where I doubt that any of them got much attention. Loud noises and yelling (at other dogs) cause her to go to “her spot.”

She gets along well with my three dogs, but it takes her a while to get comfortable around a new person. It takes a couple of visits from a new person before she will introduce herself.

If you are the perfect forever home for Boosty, please fill out an application and contact her foster parents at curt@curtharvey.com. BRBCR’s approval process includes phone interviews, reference checks, and a home visit prior to meeting a foster dog. Approved applicants must meet at the foster dog’s location. Every adoption begins with a 2-week trial period.

Bootsy’s adoption fee is $300.

Thank you for considering a rescue dog!
