Tansy is a very small, extremely loving Border Collie mix, likely a border collie/jack Russell terrier, who is being fostered in NW Houston. She is smaller than the average Border Collie e probably won’t weigh more than 30lbs once she is at ideal weight – she came in thin and is slowing gaining weight.
Tansy can be a little reserved with strangers at first, but she is very sweet and loving once she gets to know you. She likes to cuddle up close, give sweet kisses, and be wherever you are. She is almost like a cat in how she will curl up and cuddle with you. She is a quick learner and is working on learning basic commands.
Her activity level is of moderate energy, that of an older puppy. She has very nice manners on leash with minimal pulling, no lunging, barking at passing dogs or people. She is working on crate training, needing treats to go in but will sleep quietly all night and if foster parents are away. She is potty trained, but might need extra opportunities to go outside while adjusting to her new home.
Tansy is currently being fostered in a home with 2 other Border Collies (10yrs & 11 yrs). She has more of a submissive personality, so when in a new situation, with new dogs, it might take her a little while to relax. Once she gets to know others dogs, she loves to run, chase and wrestle.
She loves squeaky toys, bones and trying to learn how to fetch/chase a ball. She will bark at and chase cats.
Tansy would do best in a home with older children, she has been around young children, but she has very strong herding instincts and will herd and nip at running children.
She is spayed, fully vaccinated, micro chipped and heartworm negative and on HW preventative. If you think your family might be the right one for Tansy, please start the process by visiting the homepage to fill out and submit an adoption application.
