Border Collie / Pointer / Jack Russell Terrier
January 28, 2013

This is Piper. She is a rescue, probably a mix of Border Collie or Heeler/Pointer and JR Terrier. Whatever she is, she is super sweet and willing, but high energy and absolutely gonzo outside, where all her various instincts come into play (she herds, points and rats). It's a joy to see her doing helicopters and high speed racing on the grass, a far cry from the terrified, groveling stray we rescued from the high dessert in Nevada. She'd never walked on grass, seen water, heard a duck quack or a frog croak or even been for a walk with cars driving by. Her favorite activities are snuggling with our kids, belly rubs, dog park, eating garbage (she's quick!), rolling in dead animals (again, she's quick!) and practicing her obedience training with mom. This has been the biggest boost to her confidence. I can't wait to get her into agility. If anyone has any ideas of her mix, let me know!
