Claire ~ ADOPTED



Claire is an approximately 7 year old Border Collie who is as sweet as can be. She loves children and would fit in very well with a family. She is wonderful on leash and could even be walked by kids! Claire sometimes takes a little bit of time to warm up to new men, but once she realizes they're her friends (and especially friends with treats!) she will love them forever.

Claire is food motivated and has started positive reinforcement training. She likes interacting with people and being a part of the family. She also loves a nice, cushy place to sleep. With proper training, Claire could learn to walk, hike, or run with her new family in an off leash setting and she would love the exercise.

She is good with all other dogs, and will react appropriately to anything another dog presents - her dog to dog skills are superb. Claire is also good with cats and completely ignores them, unless they are eating when she tries to cozy up, lest they share their meal with her.

Claire is an "old soul" type of dog who has been through a lot. Most important for her is a home where she is loved endlessly just for being such a good girl. Any training someone participates in with her will only strengthen her bond to that person. Claire is crate trained, is quiet when crated and respects fencing in the yard. The only thing we have found that Claire does not love is swimming :)

Claire is being fostered in Vermont.
