Posie (Ruthie)

Border Collie

Available for adoption!

Posie’s name means a bouquet of small flowers. Posie is named well; she is sweet and beautiful. Although Posie can’t see, she can hear and responds well to a kind voice. Sadly, Posie lost her vision to disease and neglect. Still, Posie is a happy pup and uses her other senses to get around. Posie is extremely smart and easy to train. She is also a submissive pup and will often roll over to show her belly. She loves to have it rubbed!
Posie has good house manners. She is also crate trained and is learning some basic obedience commands. Posie gets an A on every house training assignment! Posie is a low energy dog and doesn’t need as much exercise. She loves to stay home, cuddle, learn new things and play with her Kong and food puzzles
Posie would do well in a home with another low to medium energy dog she can be friendly with. She would do well in a home that is on the quieter side with older kids and adults. Posie would love a fenced in back yard, but it isn’t required. She would be just as happy walking up and down a quiet street on a sniff and stroll.
If you are interested in meeting Posie, fill out an application today. If you have any experience bringing a dog to training classes or training your own dog, that is a plus!
