Please Meet Pistol!

Pistol Annie is a delightful, female Border Collie/Aussie mix, who is 3 years old and was born on Halloween.  Pistol is a sweetheart of a dog! She loves people, children and gets along with other dogs and livestock. She’s lived with cats, but still might chase one if it runs. Pistol has a rough coat, but since she’s been living in a warm house all winter, it’s been clipped short for her comfort.

Pistol is a quiet girl, a bit shy, but we don’t think it will take long for her to blossom.  She’s housetrained and well mannered. She loves going to the beach, car rides, water and swimming. Pistol’s an active girl that has been on many hikes and horse trail rides. A family that enjoys outdoors play would be ideal for her.  Pistol has shown interest in herding, but will need training to herd. With that in mind, she might like novice herding or perhaps agility, but we suspect her interest will be with her people’s activities. Pistol, (despite her name) is afraid of gunshots, firecrackers and other load noises. She would be terrified in an environment like that.

Pistol weighs about 45 pounds and is standard Border Collie size. She is spayed and up to date on annual vaccines. Her owners are moving and won’t be able to take Pistol with them. Pistol would be best in a home by herself or perhaps one other dog so she can get lots of one on one with her new person(s). Her recall is good, but we’d prefer a fenced yard.

If you’d like to meet Pistol, please fill out an on-line application.  After completing the application, please contact her foster parents Mike and Marian at  Pistol is fostered in Selah WA, which is about the middle of the state. You will need to travel to meet her in her foster home. Pistol’s adoption fee is $150.00 and goes to help pay for her spay and vaccines.

Thank you for thinking rescue and for considering a nice dog like Pistol!
