About Flax:

Flax is a medium-sized, female Border Collie X, aged 1 years old.


Flax is a B&W border collie, cross. She was sold to me as a cross between a long and short haired border collie but I think she might have a bit of whippet in her somewhere as she has quite a slight build. She is a wonderful, affectionate pet and has been with me since she was 9 weeks old. She is well socialised with people and other dogs (and loves everyone). I don’t know how she would be with cats or children, as she has no experience with either. Kids who have come up to talk to her, she has been gentle, but does tend to jump and try and lick their faces!

She is fully vaccinated and has just been speyed and we have done puppy training and general good manners training. Unfortunately, my situation has completely changed in the last few months and I have had to go back to work full time and our living situation has changed and I have had to let out my home. Ideally, I am looking for someone to foster Flax for the next 18 months, until my position has changed and I can once again give her what she needs, but I appreciate it would be hard to let her go after fostering for that long. So, I am resigned to putting her up for adoption to the right home or family.

Is Flax used to children? Yes.
Is Flax used to cats? Don’t know.
Is Flax toilet-trained? Yes.
Is Flax used to stock? Don’t know.
Is Flax used to chickens? No.
How well does Flax get on with other dogs? Great.
Flax lives in Upper Hutt, North Island.
A bit about Flax’s personality:

Flax is full of fun and very active. She loves cuddles, is very affectionate and eager to please. She loves her human, but also has a sense of adventure which means she does need a well fenced and enclosed section. She loves to play fetch with a ball and plays very well with other dogs. I have not known her to be destructive or aggressive, but she has always had her own toys which she can play.
