Meet Jimmy

Jimmy is a 9 month old, 35 pound Border Collie pup with a great energy level. He came to live with us in foster from a California shelter in late August and has been a lot of fun as part of our pack. Here are a few things we've learned about Jimmy since then:

He has a great energy level. Jimmy loves to play with our dogs and go on long runs with my wife but he's also happy to nap at my feet while I'm trying to get some work done. Some border collies (and we've had several) will nag you for interaction but that's not Jimmy, he's content with a couple of walks a day and some playtime in the yard.

He's exceptionally loyal. He follows my wife everywhere and will only let her out of his sight when he's outside playing with our pack of dogs. We love watching him running with our dogs around the yard and wrestling in the dogpile.

He's wary of strangers and people in general. He is very devoted and wants to be near you at all times but he keeps his distance. He will get close enough to pet and will allow you to scratch under his chin or behind his ears but he shuts down if you try to snuggle with him. So expect a friendly and loyal companion but not a cuddlebug or overly affectionate pup. He prefers to sleep on a dogbed right next to our bed. He is curious and gentle. He rides great in the car and walks nicely on his leash.

Jimmy will be neutered on September 23 and available to go to his forever home once he is healed from that surgery. Adoption fee is $400. He will be heart worm tested, spayed, dewormed, given flea and tick meds, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped.
