altADOPTED! Jilly is a charming, quiet girl, with a friendly, relaxed personality. It is clear she loves people, is very patient and is content to go with the flow of things. She is very curious about her surroundings and enjoys riding in the car so she can poke her head out to sniff and watch the world go by. Jilly is good on leash, does not pull at all and will readily follow your lead. However, she needs occasional correction not to alternate sides. She is approximately 2 years old and was originally found wandering in a field.

Although an exceptionally sweet and playful dog, as often the case with cattle dogs, Jilly would probably be most comfortable in a home without small children.
We will update our notes about her as we learn more about her.  For now, here are some additional notes we received from the shelter, where we rescued her from:
"There was a small barking dog we walked past and she didn't seem to be bothered by her at all.  (She) noticed one of the kitties in their condo, and she politely and quietly put her nose up to the window as we walked by.  She let me pet and cuddle with her while in the yard.  (She) met the large dog in the outdoor kennel next to us, and she seemed to enjoy watching the people that walked by."


Our mission: To rescue, care for, and rehabilitate unwanted, abused, and neglected dogs of herding breeds, concentrating on Australian Cattle Dogs and Border Collies.

Our focus is on their permanent placement into appropriate, loving homes, and informing the public about the special nature and needs of herding breeds.
