Haley is microchipped, current on vaccinations and is on heartworm preventative. She is a lovely retired girl who used to work sheep when she was younger. Because of her stockdog training, she has a wonderful “lie down” and recall when out playing or on walks. Her previous owner was paralyzed in an accident and can no longer care for her. She’s very sweet and is looking for a family to share her golden years. She’s in very good health and adores toys, nylabones, antlers and playing fetch with balls and Frisbees.

She stays near her people in the house, but often finds a good spot to chew on her nylabones, relax or take a nap. Every once in a while, she will be a bit mischievous as many border collies are, and chew on something random if left out of place. Her teeth are a bit worn down from years of playing with tennis balls. She would love to have her own supply of antlers or nylabones to keep her busy and satisfied.
Haley is best kept crated when nobody is home but is a wonderful companion around the house. At night, she finds a comfortable rug or dog bed and is quite trustworthy. She will quickly take care of personal business if you have a fenced yard, but is definitely and going to be a full time indoor dog now that she is retired and fond of air conditioning!
Just because Haley is 10 years old, she is still a wonderful walking and fetching partner! She has the heart of a youngster when it comes to ball and Frisbee games and would keep up with most older children. She gets along with dogs and people. She has not been tested with indoor cats. She travels very well in a car crate and jumps up into the car on her own.
Haley is currently in the Houston area. If you think you could share this wonderful sweet and playful senior’s love of life, please fill out the BCRT adoption application.
