Are you looking for an enthusiastic exercise buddy? If you are, Violet is your girl! Violet it is an 11 month-old Border Collie mix who weighs about 35lbs. Violet loves people and greets everyone with a happy wagging tail and tons of puppy kisses. She’s the type of dog who will bond very tightly to her people and nothing makes her happier than sitting in your lap for some nice cuddles.
Violet is definitely not what we would call a couch potato. As a young Border Collie mix she is very energetic and is looking for an active home that can meet her exercise needs. Her absolute favorite game is fetch and she can play for hours, sprinting after the ball and bringing it right back to your feet every time. In typical Border Collie style Violet is extremely intelligent, laser focused, and highly treat and ball motivated. She would make an amazing jogging or hiking partner and she would excel dog sports such as agility or fly ball. Violet will need at least 2 1/2 to 3 hours of exercise every day (just hanging out in the back yard does not count) to keep her happy.
When it comes to other dogs Violet can be selective. She’s great on leash with other dogs passing by and won’t bark or growl at them, but sometimes when meeting certain more excited dogs she can get over-stimulated. It’s clear that she’s just looking for some direction on how to handle these situations, and we think with some proper guidance she will be just fine. She is so eager to please, and has no problem focusing back on her person even and distracting situations so training her should be relatively easy.
For someone looking for an active, intelligent, and extremely loving dog Violet is such a gem! Apply here here to meet. (LH)
