About Bess:

Bess is a medium-sized, female Border Collie X, aged 4 years old.


Bess is a highly active, sometimes overactive, girl, typical of her breed, who would do best in a rural/lifestyle home. She knows her basic commands but needs work on being on the lead and generally calming down. Sometimes she gets spooked by loud noises and reacts to threats by barking loudly. She does not like cats and needs to learn to be near stock without chasing them. She would be best in a home with no young children.

She is an affectionate girl who just wants to be with her humans, especially if running along beside a bike! But she also likes laying by the fire and having towel rubs after a good shower!
