For those of you who don’t know, we occasionally foster dogs and although we’ve been really busy over the last few months, we finally finished cleaning up our construction zone and started fostering an adorable border collie mix we’ve named Clara.
She’s 8 years old, super sweet, and loves everybody she meets. Unlike our other foster dogs who had some serious issues to work with (although are now doing great with their furever families), Clara actually acts like a BC. She’s extremely toy motivated and is always up for a game of ball or tug, but is just as happy to cuddle with you and a good book.
Really, as long as she’s near her person, she’s happy. She hops in the car like a pro and while she reluctantly goes into her crate at night (something we’re working on), she doesn’t whine or complain. In fact, she almost never barks. We’re working on teaching her the basics and she’s starting to love training time. She’s picked up “sit” and is starting to learn “down” and hand-touches like the best of them.
For more information about Clara and how to adopt her or another border collie, you can look at the Great Lakes Border Collie Rescue adoption process.
