Sophie has been a house pet. She is crate and house trained. She is a medium energy level girl and she LOVES to play ball. She is good w/other dogs and even a bit submissive. She was interested in our dog savvy cats but respected them- a home w/cats could be considered on a case-by-case basis. Sophie is fine w/people (we'd recommend ages 12+ and up just due to energy levels) and an overall very nice girl.
Sophie would love an active home who will play ball w/her, take her hiking/camping..maybe even a jogging partner. A good throwing arm is required as well. She will need more then just romping in a yard (she does require a physically fenced yard- and does respect 4') and a walk around the block. She's a typical, young border collie. She'd probably LOVE to learn dog sports (agility, obedience, rally, flyball, etc). She would be a great first-time border collie for an experienced sport dog home. All in all, she's a great dog and we can't wait to help her find the PERFECT forever home!
