Willow is a gentle and loving 30-lb. Border Collie mix who is sure to melt your heart! This affectionate young girl (1-2 years old) has a velvety soft, jet-black coat with a white blaze on her chest and paws, and has a sweet and playful disposition. She has all the charms of the border collie breed without the intensity. Found as a stray, Willow instantly settled in to life with her foster family, and adores people. She is a snuggler indoors and a major ball lover outdoors!
She bonds deeply to her people, and is loyal, loving and fun. She is a delight to have in the house because she quietly lays at your feet whether you’re cooking or working or even running on the treadmill! From her border collie heritage, Willow has the innate ability to focus and to learn quickly. She is highly attuned to every cue, from a whistle to a hand signal to a raised eyebrow. She will retrieve anything you throw, and loves to learn new games. She would have fun playing fetch with older children, but is a bit tentative around the unpredictable movements of small children so would do best with children over 8.
Willow is a nicely balanced girl who has a sweet and cuddly laid back side. When playtime is over, she is equally happy lounging around and getting belly rubs or snuggling in her dog bed.
She enjoys car rides, loves leash walks, comes when she is called and already knows “sit” and “paw”. Happy to be with other dogs, Willow could easily enjoy being a solo dog.
Wonderful Willow is just looking for a forever loving home with an active buddy to explore the world with.
