Lune is a happy and confident 1yo gal. She is a classically
marked black + white border collie and weighs about 40lbs.
Typical of young border collies, Lune has a TON of energy
that needs to be funneled into constructive activities.
She's a bright girl who will test your boundaries, so a
NEBCR-approved basic obedience class will be required in
order to properly build a working relationship. If you're
not ready to commit to a sport like agility, herding or
flyball, then consider a border collie that is no longer
an adolescent! Border collies that are 3 years and older
have already settled into their personalities + activity
levels, so there's a better chance that you'll find a dog
that truly matches your lifestyle.
Lune loves to play fetch with her people, and loves to play
chase with other dogs just as much. However, she can be
a bit obnoxious in her enticements to play with other dogs.
It can take a few corrections on her playmate's part to
let her know they're not in the mood. She is still learning
her basic obedience: sit, down, stay, wait, come, etc and
will need continued work on this in her new home. Lune was
tested on sheep and shows natural talent. Due to Lune's
energy level, sport homes will be preferred.
Lune will chase cats if they run, so she should go to a
home with no cats or with extremely dog-savvy cats. She
will also chase small animals when in the yard, so a fenced
yard is preferred.
If Lune has not had enough exercise, she will not settle
in the house. She will bark at you/other dogs to continue
playing, but her foster home has been working on redirecting
that energy to playing by herself and/or settling with a
chew toy. Lune is being fostered in central MA.
