13 year old BEA is quite the big personality and full of charm, too. She slid right into the houseful of Border Collies like she’d lived there all her life. Toys, ball play, a bit of controlling the action… she’s got it all plus so much sweetness. Bea loves everyone. Such a friendly, good-natured, interesting girl who must have been a real powerhouse when she was younger - just a classic, driven, brilliant Border Collie.

Bea has some controlling tendencies so could easily join a home with male BCs even though she and the other strong dogs have made peace. We will see how that develops when considering if she might be adopted. However, we first need to tackle her vet needs since she reportedly has two ACL injuries and needs high levels of pain medication. We are working through Bea’s initial lab work and will update her bio once she has an ultrasound.. She does have a sight issue in the sunlight which is likely progressive retinal atrophy (PRA). So, she will eventually become blind but now, sees just fine inside and in shaded areas outside. PRA means her pupils do NOT dilate properly in light which is why she squints outside.

Bea came to us from Animal Control in Maryland where she was confiscated from her guardian - due to reportedly throwing Bea down the stairs. We are very, very happy to have Bea safe with us and now having her with us, can easily understand her pensive look while making the ride to Glen Highland - she is so observant and smart. She is about 45 pounds.
