This speckled beauty is Xabi (pronounced Hobby), a 1-2yo, ~55lb, female Border Collie mix who will be available for adoption in mid February once she has completed her vetting. Xabi is just as sweet as can be and melts everyone she meets with those big brown eyes. She has done wonderfully with all dogs and (dog savvy) cats she has met. She loves her foster parents, but can still be a bit shy at times, so we do recommend a home with children over 8yo.
Xabi has a great moderate energy level – enjoying just a daily walk or playtime with her foster siblings and couch cuddling in the evenings. She’s still figuring out walking on a leash, but we expect she’ll be a pro in no time. Xabi does have some mild separation anxiety and does best crated when away from her people. She settles quietly in the crate at night (and settled happily on the bedroom floor in temporary foster), but does bark some throughout the day, so she would do best in a single family home.
Xabi is UTD on vaccines and will be spayed and microchipped prior to adoption. She is currently fostered in Charlotte, NC and her adoption fee is $300.
