Freckles 1685

5 months old · Adoptable · $125

Foxy and Freckles, 5 month old Border Collie mixes (born 4/1/2022), came to Forget Me Not Shelter when their owners could no longer care for them.

Though these sisters do have a very sweet, loving bond, they will do best if adopted separately, so that each can bond with their people and blossom into the best dogs they can be.

Prior to coming to the shelter, these girls lived an outdoor only life with several other dogs. This left them a bit undersocialized with people, and now that they are meeting new people and dogs every day, they are both adapting very quickly, and are happy doggos!

Freckles (white and red) is the more outgoing of the two, and will excitedly greet you with kisses and adoringly paw at you for attention.

Her shyer sister, Foxy (red), sits behind Freckles and watches her interactions to make sure everything is OK. Foxy's happy, wiggly tail wants to lead her to the person to get some of that affection, but she is more hesitant. Foxy is becoming more and more comfortable each day thanks to the one on one attention she gets from the staff and volunteers.

They love to play and have so much fun with their toys; they are best suited to heavy-duty toys for heavy chewers. They are used to wearing their collars and are slowly learning about leashes as they take walks around the shelter with volunteers and staff.

These girls will benefit from some training, as they are a bit behind on learning manners and basic obedience. They are smart and treat-motivated, so should be fun and easy to train!

Foxy and Freckles have so much spirit and are loving life at the shelter - can you imagine how amazed they will be when they discover there is an even BETTER life ahead, one where they each get to be beloved family members?! You are going to love watching the girl of your choice blossom with your family.

All pets arrive spayed/neutered, dewormed, microchipped and vaccinated. Adoption fee for Freckles is a suggested minimum of $125 (more gratefully accepted). All pets are placed with a 30-day money-back trial period, to give pet and family enough time to discover any unknown allergies or other conflicts.

Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your donation to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!
