     Skye is a sweet little Border Collie-English Setter mix puppy who came into rescue with her littermate, Ryley. To tell them apart in the photos, Skye has more white than black, while Ryley has more black than white.

      Skye adores people and while she likes to play outside, her favorite thing is staying inside and cuddling. She is definitely a Velcro Girl. If you want to spend the day on the couch, she would be delighted to join you as a lap-dog, or at least keep you company as a couch potato. Skye spends a lot of time with her foster mom’s grandchildren and is especially fond of them. She is great with the kids - even the one-year-old granddaughter. Like any puppy, she is exuberant, and will press or jump up against the kids so that she can give them kisses. She is smart though, and with some additional training, it won’t take long for her to learn to rein herself in. Skye is cautious around men until she gets to know them and tends to be protective of the children around men she does not yet know.

      Skye is a people-pleaser, and it makes her easy to train. The 9-year-old granddaughter is taking her through a 4H training program. Skye is doing great with Heel and is willing to stay by her side. Even the 6- and 7-year-old granddaughters can walk her on the leash. She is attentive and looks forward to her training sessions with the 9-year-old. In just a few short weeks, Skye has mastered Sit, Down, and Stay (all on leash).

      Skye is house broken, crate trained, and loves car rides. She likes some chew-toys but is not obsessed with them. She is great with other dogs and enjoys playing with them, but she would also be fine as a solo dog, as she is so happy to be with her Person. When introduced to cats in the house, she ignored them.

      This darling puppy is easy-going and intelligent and will learn your routines quickly. Do you need a little Puppy Breath in your day? Fill out the application!
