or Izzy is an approximately 1 year old female, 30 pound,
black and white border collie. It is believed that she was
purchased from a breeder, but she eventually ended up in
a shelter as she was picked up as a stray one too many times.
Despite her misfortunes, Izzy is a loving, snuggly dog who
loves to be with her people. She gets along well with other
dogs and with dog savvy cats.
would love nothing more than a home with children and other
dogs. In fact if they leave the room and leave Izzy behind,
she whines to be included. While she is a bit exuberant
in play (like any young Border Collie), she seems to know
how to tone it down around younger children. To ensure appropriate
and safe play, ALL interactions with kids should be supervised.
Izzy also likes squeaky toys (in the house) and playing
with a soccer ball outside. She also LOVES to play tug,
particularly with her own leash. Izzy likes to play "chase"
around the house with the other two dogs who live there.
