Hello, my name is Zoey. I am a very beautiful, happy and athletic young adult female Border Collie who loves to play with other dogs my size. I haven't met any small dogs, but I love an active playmate who will wrestle and run with me! As with most Border Collies, I have a lot of energy and I admit that if I don’t get enough exercise, I will find alternative ways to keep busy. For example, I have gone so far as to jump on the counter to watch foster dad leave or simply counter surf, so he now puts me in that crate thing even if he leaves for a minute. WHY you ask??? Because apparently, jumping on the counters for any reason is frowned upon in this establishment!!
Anyway, my favorite things include attention, tennis balls, treats, sniffing everything and staying active!! As a matter of fact, I was thinking that agility or flyball may be good ways to use up some energy, that is of course, providing I have the attention span to do them (tee hee!). Dad and I go for a couple 45-minute walks a day which helps mellow me out a bit so I may actually spend some time just laying around. I know the “kennel/crate,” “go potty,” and “wait” commands and I am leash and potty trained. As for that crate that I mentioned earlier…well, if I’m in there and dad is nearby, I’m fine but if I’m left alone, I will yell at him constantly until he takes me out. I have not met any kids and I have a high prey drive so cats are not a good fit for me, but I do get along with other dogs and would love a canine buddy and a yard with a tall 6' fence where we can play at my new furever home. They tell me it has to be 6' because I am athlete and can clear those short 4' ones! If you don't have a fenced in yard, but enjoy going for long walks or runs, we could make that work, too, but a fenced in yard helps me get energy out on my own. If you want to be my partner to do that, it sure would be fun. If I had to draw up my ideal home, it would be an active person who lives on some land or has a large yard. We could do chores together, or start some fly ball training, or train for a marathon - the opportunities are endless! If you fit the bill and are slightly our of Underdog's radius, please apply and let's chat!
All I need in my life now is a furever home with an active and patient person who will love me unconditionally and will NOT give up on me! Are you ready to welcome a wonderfully active companion into your life? I promise I am worth it!! Love, Zoey.
