Hi, I'm Shea. Adopt Me!

Border Collie

Black and White

Baby, Female

Shea (aka Frankie) is a smart, playful and cuddly 3-month-old Border Collie puppy looking for a forever home with an active adopter that has herding dog experience. She will likely weigh 40 – 5o pounds as an adult. She’s a happy, friendly girl that can be a bit shy when meeting new people, but she warms up quickly and loves attention from the people she knows. Shea is one of a large group of dogs that were living in neglectful conditions and were confiscated by animal control. Currently in foster care, Shea is ready to leave the past behind her and become a shining star in a family of her own. Because she had to fight for every morsel of food in her previous life, at first Shea exhibited some resource guarding, but that behavior is improving. She is doing well with house training, and is getting the hang of walking on the leash.  She’ll do well with a savvy adopter that can continue her training, and can keep her both mentally and physically active. Herding breeds are working dogs, and without a job they can become bored and potentially destructive. Shea might be a great candidate for agility training, herding or other dog sports. This breed can tend to “herd” kids by nipping at heels, so an adult adopter or family with kids over age 10 would be best. Shea is spayed and has received her first vaccine. She will require boosters in the near future. If you are ready to help this sweet pup live her best life, please fill out an online application.

Please note: Due to COVID-19, preference is given to resident of Monterey County and Santa Cruz County.
