T&D Dog of the Week: Lottie

Lottie came to us in early March from Klamath Falls.  It was quickly determined that she was pregnant, so she went into a foster home so she could birth, nurse, and wean her pups. She had a litter of seven, though sadly one of her pups was stillborn.

She is a border collie, a little more than 3 years old, and about 48 ¼ lbs.  Lottie can be nervous around new people so her new family will need to go slow with her and give her plenty of encouragement and patience while she settles in. She will need to go to a calm, low-traffic household in a quiet neighborhood. She is nervous and reactive around many other dogs, so she would be best as the only dog in the home. Her fosters have let us know that she’s very sweet, very smart (as border collies are!), and listens well. From their experience with her for two months, they say she is a dog that requires gentleness, and lots of patience, and with that she forms a very strong bond and is eager to please the people she trusts. She is potty trained and didn’t have any accidents in her foster home. She knows the commands sit, down, leave it, and off. At first she didn’t know what to do with toys, but now that she’s figured them out, she likes to carry her toys around with her. If you think you might be the person for Lottie, please fill out the questionnaire at the bottom of her profile and someone from OHS will call you to talk more about her.
