This striking gal is Cha Cha, a 2 year old Border Collie who weighs about 40 pounds. Cha Cha came to us knowing nothing, but she is so smart. She now knows: Sit, heel, wait (for entries), down, stand, come, go to your crate. She is working on learning 'place' and 'stay'. She also will play 'Touch' with open hand palm (also with use of target stick w/ball at end), shake by saying 'nice to meet you', and will wait for permission to eat. She likes to work for a clicker and treats. Cha Cha is house trained, crate trained, and knows how to use the dog door. Cha Cha is nice with other dogs, after she meets them. She has a foster brother now and likes to play with him. If he gets too rough, she will let him know. She also likes to fetch now. As for animals smaller than she is...they are way too interesting to Cha Cha. She cannot be trusted with small animals. Cha Cha is suspicious of new people, especially men, but she will warm up when asked to do some of her tricks for treats. We will not place her with kids as she likes to nip clothing for attention sometimes. Fast movement may get her excited. Cha Cha has learned about the leash. Her high prey drive does have her very alert for anything that moves, including cars and anything moving across the street. Her focus on her person on leash will need continued work. Cha Cha is good in the car. She would be a good adventure partner. Cha Cha is not a Border Collie for someone who hasn't owned a Border Collie or other similar high drive herding breed. She must be kept busy. Her tendency to run TO noises like cars, and her nippy behavior, require someone who knows how to manage the breed. She has unlimited potential as a sporting partner with the right person. She's fun to work with a very agile. She loves being near her people, hanging out and relaxing in the sun. She also cannot not be left unattended in a yard. She has been known to get out and it will take time to have her settle enough to know it's better to stay in. Cha Cha is spayed, microchipped, and she is up to date on vaccinations. We do not ship our dogs. She is available for a meeting and adoption in SoCal. A home visit and vet reference are required.
