Adopted: Babe has found her forever home. We wish her the very best life possible.
Babe has an ABCA pedigree that lists some well-known goose dogs and agility dogs. She is very high drive, with a lot of “eye” and needs to be given a sport or a job to do. Unfortunately, Babe has been bounced around due to her previous owners’ unfortunate circumstances. However, she seems resilient and amazingly biddable and eager to bond. She is very athletic and has treat and ball drive. Babe knows sit, and down, and is crate-trained and house-trained. She is quiet in her crate and doesn’t bother other dogs in their crates when she is out and about. Babe really loves to stare, so she needs to go to a home where the Border Collie stare isn’t misunderstood as a threat. Babe wants things to move when she stares at them and will sometimes bark excitedly after a dog passes by, because she thinks she made the dog move. Babe seems to just gravitate towards kids, wagging her tail. She is a little shy with men at first, but warms up quickly when she knows she can trust someone. She does well with women and seems to want to bond strongly to them. She loves affection and attention, but really loves chasing things. She would NOT be a good candidate for a house with a cat or any small pets. However, if you want squirrels driven from your bird feeders or geese off your pond, she would be amazing. Babe has lived in houses with other dogs, and she does seem to do well with dogs that don’t take her staring personally. Her ideal dog-mate would probably be one that loves to be chased and was tall and athletic enough to give her a good run for her money.
