If you are looking for a nice sheltie girl we have one for you! Frannie came to LOCS of SEVA from a wonderful family who were having some difficulty with her behavior. Since she has been with us in rescue we have really gotten to know this sweetie.
Frannie is 2 years old. She is completely house trained and has been spayed and fully vaccinated to include lyme. She has been microchipped as well. Frannie loves to cuddle and to play. She has lots of energy so she needs a family who has some time to play. She loves to run and is super fast so she will need a fenced yard for sure. She may even be one to get into agility, barn hunting or luring competition. 


She gets along really well with other dogs of all sizes to include a great dane, a collie, shelties, a corgi, and a bichon frise. Unfortunately, she will chase and bark at cats and birds. She will sit, come, and go to her kennel on command. She walks well with me on the leash but will sometimes bark and lunge toward cars. We are working on sitting when cars go by. 


She likes to chase birds, cats, and planes. No squirrel as of yet. Frannie is a bit protective in that if a person she does not know comes up to the door or a gate she will run barking at the gate. Before the individual comes in you must get her to sit or move away. Once the person comes into the room she will come sniff them and all is well.
