Hi there! My name is Sissy and I am a four year old female Border Collie/Australian Shepherd with medium black curly hair and white on my feet, chest and muzzle. I weigh about 40 pounds, am spayed, and current on all my vaccinations. I am house trained, have teriffic house manners and am quiet unless the other two dogs tell me that it is time to play and bark. I also ride well inside the car, not loose in the back of a pickup. I am little timid with first make introductions, but slowly warm up. I am happy to be living in a foster home with adults and a four-year old boy, a very large cat and two very large dogs. I don't really play with the child but am gentle and sweet with him. I ignore the cat but do run and play with the dogs in the large fenced back yard. What I am looking for is a family that has lots of love and and affection to give to me. I will wiggle myself right into your arms for all the attention I can get. However, I am not a lap dog or big snuggler. My favorite place for security is a soft rug under my foster parent's bed. Because of my previous life, I am a little timid about eating around other dogs, so I prefer to eat alone in another area all by myself. I walk well on a leash and enjoy the family walks to town and to run free on a hike in the country with the other dogs. I have great recall. I am crate trained, but can be trusted to be left home alone with the other dogs and not get into trouble. I do require a secure fenced yard for my safety and exercise. I prefer a six foot fence because of my jumping skills. I am also learning to walk downtown on the busy, noisy streets and walk into some of the business place tha allow dogs. I am becoming more confident and feel that I am ready to make the move to a wonderful forever home, wherever that may be. I have learned trust and loyalty from my foster family and I am now looking for another person or family to teach me that same trust, love and loyalty. If you adopt me, I can guarantee that you will have the best new family member that will keep you company wherever you go; walk, run or car ride.
