Riesling (“Ries”) is a gorgeous Border Collie with a personality that matches her good looks, and she is ready for adoption. When we first welcomed Ries into our rescue, her foster mom noticed that Ries was limping on her right front leg. After many vet appointments and X-rays, it was discovered that Ries had an OC (Osteochondritis Dissecans) lesion in her shoulder joint. Ries saw a canine orthopedic surgeon, she had shoulder surgery, and she is now doing great with no activity restrictions!
Ries is just 11 months old, she is a great weight at 35 pounds, and she has a soft, fluffy black and white coat. She is housebroken, crate-trained, and she knows her basic obedience commands. Ries really loves to learn and she is food and praise motivated – a true pleasure to train! Her leash walking skills are okay – she is easily distracted and wants to greet all people and her dog friends! Ries also loves car rides.
Ries loves everyone! She is a high-Velcro dog who loves being a shadow to her humans and getting lots of pets and praise throughout the day. Ries is also a medium-to-high energy gal who is always ready for any activity you throw her way! Ries loves to run, hike and play with her dog pals (she loves her dog pals!). She also likes to fetch, swim, and play with her toys! And when all of this great exercise is done for the day, Ries is an amazing snuggler. Ries is fine with cats – she’s such a friendly girl!
The ideal family for Ries is active, fun, and ready to have a smart little Border Collie join them in all of their adventures! Ries will also be at her best with an experienced dog family who can keep her mentally and physically stimulated as well as continue her training. A fenced yard is required for this spunky girl and another playful dog pal is important. Cats and children over the age of 10 are welcome! Ries is such a happy, playful girl, and if you would like to learn more about our adoption process and complete our application, please visit our website, www.sohodogrescue.org. Ries is fostered in Jacksonville, FL.
