Stella is a beautiful classic border collie. She turns heads at the dog park, bursting with energy and impressive ball skills.
Stella is very smart, learns quickly, and likes to please her person. She knows most commands — sit, stay, up, down, and off — and only joins her foster mom in bed or on furniture when invited. She has recently learned “go to your place” for downtime.
Stella does great riding in the car, and is friendly with other dogs and humans. She is an affectionate girl and loves her people. Because she wants all the attention, Stella requires a very active home where she is preferably the only dog. She’d do best in a home where her new mom or dad will be with her most of the time.
Stella has recently been introduced to the Frisbee for mental stimulation and has picked it up quickly. She has significant sporting potential, great focus, and good food drive. With the proper training, she could excel at agility. Stella is confident and obedient.
Stella requires a fenced yard and an experienced border collie home due to her activity level. She’s too active for very small children. No townhomes, condos, or apartments, please.
Like most border collies, Stella requires daily physical and mental exercise to be happy. She thrives on a set schedule with consistency.
Stella might do well with one other dog in the home — an older larger, chill dog —not a small one. And definitely not another high-energy one.
This impressive girl is ready to join her forever family.
