Indie is a border collie mix, approx. 3 years old, who was found wandering the streets with her litter of puppies. We aren't sure how long she was alone, but long enough to become distrustful of humans. Thankfully she still trusted her other 4 legged friends who helped us rescue her and have been her support system in her foster home. While she still needs some time to trust new people and experiences, she is one of the sweetest dog we've ever met...she loves being around other dogs and people she trusts. There's been no reason to crate her as she was house/potty trained from day 1 (which is quite amazing given her circumstances), and has never chewed on or destroyed anything. Indie has been learning how to be a dog, watching & learning from the other dogs how to play with toys, or play with the other dogs. It's one of the most amazing things to see - Like watching a child take their first steps! Based on the progress she's made in such a short amount of time, with someone who has kindness, patience, and the desire to provide the structure she needs to continue to thrive, we can only imagine how amazing she will be! She is spayed, microchipped, fully vaccinated and heart worm positive, but AJL will pay for any HW treatment until she tests negative.
Indie will do best in a home with other dogs, as they have proven to be her safety factor for gaining trust and just overall comfort. She has not been tested with cats since the current foster home does not have any. If you think you are that special someone for Indie, please let us know!
