Josie is a lovely, 11 year old border collie/husky mix in need of an adoptive home. Josie’s owner guesses she weighs about 65 pounds. Regular vetting has not been afforded so Josie’s adopter must be willing and able to get Josie vetted, vaccinated and continue regular vet care for the rest of her days to help her maintain good health.

We are told that Josie loves kind children. Josie does not love small or yappy dogs. She should not go to a home with cats. True to her breed mixes, she will want to chase small, furry beings! While she has not lived with another dog in the past 10 years (since adoption), we are told she can “sometimes” be social with other dogs her size.

At this time Josie is fine to stay alone without anxiety when her person leaves her. Of course, coming into a new home, patience will need to be shown so that Josie will learn her adopter is coming back to her. She does well managing quite a while before she needs a potty break and she can still do stairs. Josie is not much of a barker at all; she’s a very good girl who really wants to please her person.

Josie is described as being an intelligent, very loving and loyal dog. She does well walking on leash and would appreciate a home where she gets daily exercise. Josie knows basic commands, both verbal and hand. This pretty girl has so much to offer, she sounds like she’d make a wonderful family member!

Josie is located in Port Townsend, WA. She will need an adoptive home very soon. For contact information please email:

This is not an ODH dog; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.
