Say hello to Sparkles, a beautiful female tricolor collie. She is doing very well in her foster home where she is learning to get along with the other collies. Sparkles is very protective of our little Maine coon kitten, she will lie down and tuck him under her chin.
Sparkles will whine sometimes when she can’t see us or be right near her people and we are working on that with her, but it would be helpful for her to have an owner who is home most of the time as she likes to have a lot of attention.
Sparkles has some scarring on her nose from what we believe might have been a result of possible fighting with a somewhat aggressive German Shepherd she used to live with, so we believe she would do best as an only dog. She is obedient and knows sit, lie down, and come. She walks well on a leash and off leash she stays close by. She is crate trained. Like a lot of collies, she likes to talk but will quiet down if told to hush.
Sparkles has been a pleasure to have in her foster family and she will do well if placed in a home with adults and children over the age of ten. Sparkles is somewhat touch sensitive, especially on her hind quarters and front legs and would benefit from a patient owner who can work with her on desensitizing her to all kinds of touch around her legs. She is heart worm negative, spayed, and up to date on all of her vaccinations. Sparkles is just waiting for that special person to take this beautiful dog home and and give her the training and attention she deserves.
