Barbara's Story

Lassie has nothing on Barbara! This gorgeous Border Collie is looking for owners who are willing to provide her with lots and lots of playtime. She enjoys structured activities such as playing fetch and tug-of-war. True to her breed, she also enjoys running and attempting to her herd her people. 

Barbara can be possessive of food and toys, so she would benefit from an experienced, adults-only owners who are able to provide her with continued training. She is easily startled by loud noises, so a quiet home would be a plus. Barbara is currently spending time in a foster home. For more information on how to meet her, please e-mail
