ZOEY IS A COURTESY LISTING WHO LIVES WITH HER OWNER IN GARY, INDIANA.
CBBCR OFFERS COURTESY LISTINGS AS A COMMUNITY SERVICE. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THIS DOG, PLEASE CONTACT THE OWNER BY E-MAIL AT:  AGILDRAWR@SBCGLOBAL.NET

Zoey is an adult Border Collie who has lived with her current owner since a puppy; however, the other BC in the home, Zoey's littermate sister, is not tolerating Zoey well (and vice versa) and the stress between them has caused their owner to decide that re-homing Zoey is in everyone's best interests.

Zoey is a sweet girl, a bit anxious, and will need some confidence-building when she is in a new home.  Please note a couple of things:

1.  She might be fine with kids, but as a slightly anxious dog, it would be best that she go to a home with no children or older children;
2.  She has not been on heartworm preventive for a couple of years, and should be tested and started on preventive by her new owners.  Her current owner will pay for the testing, she states.

Zoey and her sister are not the most congenial of room-mates, and Zoey will do better, her owner feels, in a home that does not include her littermate.  While Zoey is fine with other dogs, she might enjoy the company of a male dog or a less intense breed than her own; or she might like to be the star of the show, the only dog in the household.

Her owner says this about Zoey:

Meet Zoey, a 4 1/2 yo purebred border collie. Zoey is in need of a new home, asap. She is best suited as the only dog in a home, dependent upon canine personalities.
Zoey has experience living with cats, and has been fine with kids over 10yo. While she is in overall fine health, spayed and up to date with all vaccines and treatment, she does exhibit fly snapping syndrome, engaging in periodic pouncing.
She is currently living near Gary, IN, with her sister Pearl, who unfortunately instigates a lot of aggression that
Zoey needs to be distanced from.
True to her breed, Zoey is a very active dog. While not a chewer or destructive type, she needs a lot of loving care, including daily exercise.  She is accustomed to daily walks, running outdoors, and playing fetch, her favorite. She loves her humans, will drop for a belly rub in a heartbeat, and is house trained. She responds to all basic commands, and is one smart border collie cookie.

If you think Zoey would do well in YOUR home, please contact her owner at the e-mail address above!  Zoey looks forward to meeting you!
