JOHNNY. Every once in a while when we’re saving a border collie from a shelter, we will get a plea from the shelter staff to take on a “really nice ‘sort of border collie’ ” dog as they’ve chosen him or her to be extra lovely. Often deemed “a shelter favorite,” we’ve been fortunate enough to find them all forever homes. Some take longer than others, but we really feel Johnny is going to be one of our short term tenants.
He is a very handsome guy who is quite athletic and it really comes through in his photographs. He has not shown any interest in jumping fences - thank God - but his body is very nimble and has great physical range. Johnny was found as a stray on an Indian Reservation near Tulare. He’s a young dog - maybe 12 months old. Although it seems he might benefit from a few pounds as his body is very lean, his adopter should try to maintain a sporting weight for him as his body is - well we think - absolutely beautiful. He is goofy, sweet, loving, playful, really likes other dogs and plays with them well. One of our volunteers recently took Johnny to a three-day adoption event, with him spending two nights in her home. While we initially thought Johnny had little to no manners, he was an absolute angel. His car riding, event and house manners were impeccable. And while Johnny didn’t get adopted, he sure did garner a lot of attention and admiration.
Johnny can be quite exuberant if he hasn’t seen you for a while, all he really wants is lots of loving when reunited, but he calms down quickly. While he was very good with all children at the event, care must be taken with Johnny around small children as he might accidently knock them down. He is a lover, not a fighter. He is a companion dog, not a guard dog. But, he will answer back if a dog really pushes him too much. And he’s not a barker per say but he will bark at the appropriate time which makes him a great house dog to let you know if anything is out of sorts, etc. Johnny rides very well in the car, crates up nicely at events and behaves like a model citizen. He has been around large parrots and has no interest whatsoever.
Simply put, Johnny is one of the nicest mutts you will ever meet. We believe him to be a mixture of Labrador, Hound and yes! Border Collie. This guy has major best friend potential, be it for a single person or an entire family. He will need an active life style as he is still an adolescent puppy, who has been witnessed to do a little bit of item stealing and chewing, so chew toys are a must for him.

If you are interested in meeting our dogs, please fill out an adoption application.  We require a pre-approved application to be on file before any meet and greets are scheduled.  The electronic application can be found on our website at http://www.bordercolliesinneed.org/border_collie_rescue_and_adoptions/adoption_application.html
