🐾 Meet Liz, the spirited and athletic Border Collie ready to bring joy into your home! 🐾

Liz is a possible purebred rough coat female who, along with her three pups (Lollipop, Kieran, and Teagan) were surrendered to a small rural shelter in Louisiana.

At three years old and 43 lbs., Liz is bursting with energy and enthusiasm. She’s a quick learner, mastering commands like “Sit” and “Down” in no time, thanks to her food motivation and intelligence. Currently, she’s working on perfecting “Off” and recall, eager to impress her new family.

Liz thrives in an environment where she can stretch her legs and show off her athletic prowess. A large area to roam and explore, perhaps even a swimming pool, would be a dream come true for this energetic girl. When you return home, get ready for a whirlwind of excitement as Liz eagerly awaits your company.

While Liz is housebroken and sweet with humans, she does have some resource guarding tendencies with other dogs, particularly around food and toys. But with the right guidance and training, she’ll learn to share and play well with others.

In moments of stress, like during thunderstorms, Liz seeks comfort in her crate or a cozy, protected space. She’s also a sucker for a good tummy scratch and will happily cozy up in your home office, keeping you company while you work.

With her occasional chatter and love for barking at neighboring dogs, Liz adds a lively spirit to any home. Her good-natured personality and quick bonding make her an ideal companion for an active family ready to give her the love and attention she deserves.

If you’re an expert tummy scratcher with a heart full of love and plenty of treats to spare, Liz could be the perfect addition to your family. Unfortunately, Liz is heartworm positive. She begins her heartworm treatment in March, so will likely not be available for adoption until July unless a foster-to-adopt family is willing to take her through heartworm treatment before finalizing the adoption. But if you choose Liz, expect her to fill your home with laughter, love, and endless adventures! 🐾❤️
