LIZBETH is around 2 years of age, spayed, vaccinated & microchipped.  She is a traditionally marked, black & white smooth coat Border Collie.  She is slight of frame, weighing in around 30 pounds, & fast on her paws. 

LIZBETH spent time in an Idaho shelter before being sprung by drug detection dog trainers.  Having not made the cut as a detection dog, she was again in need of a home.  An opening became available in a foster home in Washington State & she was flown out west & is now spending her days at the beach where she is enjoying chasing balls and discs with her foster doggy buddies.   It is likely she was mistreated in her previous life [not while with the dog trainers] & is a bit timid but is making leaps & bounds out of her protective shell.  She doesn't have a mean bone in her body & is gentle as a lamb.  LIZZY is getting better at telling her foster mom when she needs a potty break.  She isn't fond of inclement [i.e. cold, damp coastal] weather & needs some coaxing to get her business done outside.

LIZBETH recently attended agility trials as a spectator.  She became totally jazzed up & badly wanted to join the fun.  She would very likely excel in agility, flyball or competition disc.  Away from the activity she was the hit of the party.  She really enjoyed meeting kids & adults & dogs.  She was so well behaved.  What a good girl!

To make an appointment to meet LIZBETH, please first fill out an easy on-line application then contact her foster mom, Vivian, at or call 206. 930. 6419.

LIZBETH is SPDR affiliated & an adoption donation of $150.00 will be graciously accepted.

REMEMBER:  Animals are a lifetime commitment & deserve a stable, loving, permanent home.  LIZZY will probably live 10 - 15 years & will require your love & care for all of her years.  Please consider this carefully before adopting an animal.

All dogs adopted through SPDR are expected to be true family members which includes, but is not limited to, sleeping indoors & being a part of family activities.  SPDR dogs will not be adopted as a present for another person.
