About Puffin

Adoption Fee: $200
Australian Shepherd / Border Collie
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Female

This dog is in Tennessee. Adoption Donation $200 if picked up in TN, $250 plus transport fee for out of state adoptions. Pretty little Puffin is an absolute sweetheart! This gorgeous, petite Aussie or Border Collie mix (best guess) is about 4 years old and is perfectly sized at about 30lbs. After her owner passed away, poor Puffin found herself scared and in a shelter. But she's been learning to trust again, and now she's ready to show you her favorite trick, being a happy puppy! Puffin rarely barks, has mastered going potty outside, doesn't chew on anything she shouldn't, and is convinced she should be in your lap as much as possible. Puffin loves to snuggle and you should be prepared for the cutest kissing sessions ever. Puffin is housetrained and crate trained, although she seems totally trustworthy in the house unattended so a crate is not needed. She also loves to give you a sweet goodnight kiss or two, and then she settles right down in her foster mom's bed for the night. We all love her infectious smile and the adorable mohawk on the back of her head and down her neck. Her fur is like silk, so soft and shiny, and her tail is always wagging. But this girl is more than just a pretty face! Puffin's secret talent could easily be agility. We're not sure if she'd like the weave poles, but she is a natural at sailing over small jumps and looks so graceful and happy doing it. Puffin is beginning to explore how fun toys can be, and she loves to flop over for as much belly rubbing as you are willing to give. She's great with other dogs, but can be a little shy and timid around new people. She hasn't been tested with cats, but that can be arranged if needed. Puffin gets a little bouncy when she's happy and excited, but she doesn't actually jump on you, at least not until you sit down on the couch. She could be a little energetic for super young kids, but she'd love to have older kids or other dogs to play with. Puffin has been spayed and is current on all vaccines and preventative care.
