Introducing Prissy, a gorgeous young house-trained Border Collie mix. In her foster home, she gets along fine with the resident dogs and has started playing with them. This means Prissy can live in a home with other dogs. She's paid little attention to the cats, so may do well with dog-friendly cats and may slowly adjust to others.

Her foster describes Prissy as smart, gentle, calm, playful and curious. Prissy is a little shy, but she will approach strangers when her foster introduces them. She likes their attention. She likes to lay next to you and will get on your lap for rubs, pets and scratches. She loves chest rubs! She also likes to collect toys and put them on her bed.

Prissy walks well on a leash and will make an excellent trail or hiking buddy! Prissy already understands sit and stay, and she drops to the ground when you say down. She is eager to learn and is very treat motivated. Prissy is so smart she should be obedience trained in no time! Prissy is crate-trained and settles down there, doing well when her foster is away.

Prissy will prefer a home with someone who is around a lot. If she lives in a house, she will need a securely fenced yard. She should do well in an apartment. Prissy will enjoy a dog buddy but doesn't require one. She may like being the center of attention.

Do you have room in your heart and a place in your home for the sweet, young, gorgeous Prissy? Come meet Prissy today!
