“Hi my name is Vanessa and I need to find a new home. I am a 13 year old Border Collie. While that may sound old, I don’t act like an old dog! I’m an active girl who loves LOVES to play ball, I’ll play all day long if you want to. I will even leap in the air to catch my toys. Going for walks are great fun as well. My beloved person passed away and his family has graciously given me a home but I don’t appreciate living with their dogs and cats. I was used to being an only dog with my man and I really hope to find another home just like that: just me and my person or people. I am a very loving girl once I meet and get to know you. Kids are fine too as long as they’re over 8 years old. I spend the days inside as all dogs should be allowed to do and I can “hold it” for about 6 hours if necessary. I do take a medication to help with leakage, that happens as one ages. I also take a medication for my arthritis and it helps me so that I can stay the active girl I enjoy being. I used to live in a condo with my man and I did just fine with that, as long as we can get out for exercise. Are you in need of a best friend? I’m looking for one, would you like to be mine?”

Vanessa is waiting on Bainbridge Island, WA. for an adopter.

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