Josie is a 3-4 year old border collie mix. She is a sweet girl who loves belly rubs and will give you kisses for days. She is a working dog and does well with an experienced handler. She would be best in a home with other dog(s). She is not particular to size, so big or small is fine with her. She does seem to get along with males better. The home who is lucky enough to adopt her needs to be experienced with dogs, and more preferred with working breeds. Josie is very sensitive to her surroundings, and in the wrong environment she will become timid, shy and introverted. With a confident handler and household those traits are not displayed at all. She does well with children, but if you have a cat or cats she will stalk and chase them. She needs some help walking on a leash, her nose guides the way currently. With repetition and training, I'm confident that she will walk like a pro. Currently I would say she needs some assistance with potty training, however being on a schedule I think will correct this minor issue. To meet Josie, please call Sarah at 630-659-5934. The adoption fee is $200.
Adoption fee includes:
- free 30 days of pet insurance (requires activation)
