Mans best friend
Meet Jinx, she is a 2 year old Border Collie mix. She is a typical Border Collie that would be great for agility. Jinx is a very sweet girl with lots of energy. She loves wading in a pool, sitting on top of things and watching over her kingdom. She is a very smart girl that can learn lots of tricks.
Jinx is dominant female and should have no other female dogs, but does well with most male dogs. Basically she is the queen and wants all her subjects to be men.
Jinx would do best in a home with kids over 5 years old due to resource guarding. She also requires a fenced in yard.
Jinx is spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaccines. She is housetrained and crate trained.
