About Mary Jane

Adoption Fee: $350
Border Collie / Boxer
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Female

Mary Jane is a beautiful girl inside and out at a great size at 50 pounds and 3.5 years old. She's affectionate and playful with her foster parents and 11 year old foster dog sister (hound). MJ could be in a home with another submissive pup or soak up all the attention as an only dog. Her cat testing went well as she just ignored the kitty. We think an adult home that's not too busy would be the best adjustment for a happy and confident life. She's very agile and athletic so she needs a backyard with a tall fence because, boy, does she have a vertical jump. Oh, and does she love water? Hoses, sprinklers, baby pools on a hot day gives her the zoomies! She's aching for a place to run and play freely with someone she trusts. Drum roll�'�|Mary Jane's Ancestry results are in! We just had to know what this energetic pup is made of and we thought it would help her find her furever home to do a DNA test. She's a little bit of a lot but mostly Boxer (16%) and Border Collie (16%), followed by American Pit Bull Terrier (10%) and Labrador Retriever (9%). She's muttastic! Mary Jane's morning routine is to jumping on the bed to give her f-mom a BIG hug to show a little morning gratitude and get in a big stretch. Mary Jane is good on a leash and loves her daily 1.5 mile walk. She could be with a runner or hiker too but that's just not her f-mom's style. Like a Boxer and a Border Collie, she shows some herding tendencies, wanting to chase and corral loud trucks and buses but, again, she does mind on a leash and responds to 'No bark' when her brow furls and f-mom sees it coming. Its something about the wheels we think. Once she's done with her morning walk and breakfast, she plays independently with her toys running and tossing them in the air. Occasionally big f-sister engages and they have a little roughhouse. Then she settles down with a chew toy and at night Mary Jane prefers to lie on the bed or couch with her head on a pillow. She is so sophisticated! F-mom is teaching her commands. Mary Jane responds to sit, down, shake, crawl, and 'gimme a kiss'. She has feelings and she likes to share. Mary Jane will have a conversation with you and it almost sounds like she's yodeling her opinions! MJ does well in the car. Like most dogs, thunderstorms and fireworks are not her jam. She LOVES to watch television but violence and war movies upset her and her protective mode kicks in (barking and jumping). She's got such a kind heart. While she is housebroken, she doesn't 'say' she wants to go outside. After the morning walk, short breaks about 3 times a day work for her. Another plus to having a fenced in yard! I'd say she's done very well since she was in a rural shelter for 7 months, just skin and bones, Before the shelter, no one is quite sure how she spent her first 5 or so months. Now she's all filled out but still lean, just right for her size. So, if you want to meet her, please fill out an application!!! ** All of our Wigglers are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, hw tested/treated, and on preventatives.
