***9/7/15 - ADOPTION PENDING!!!*** 

Iris is a sweet border collie mix who has spent her life up until now trying to bond with someone.  How do we know this?  After being picked up as a stray in a southern Idaho town she was tracked back to her owner who told the shelter she was 4 to 5 years old, had been bred multiple times and had been given away on Craigslist recently.  It's apparent to us that Iris is anxious to form a bond with someone.

This is a lovely dog who is looking for a place to fit in.  Whenever her foster mom looks for her, Iris is sitting in close proximity and staring right into her foster mom's eyes.  Waiting.  What are we going to do next?!  She will be a most devoted companion for the person or family that adopts her.

She is now spayed, vaccinated and had a benign lump removed from her back.  More things to know about lovely Iris...she is housetrained, crate trained and gets along with the other dogs in her foster home.  Iris is very affectionate with her people.  We consider her to be a medium energy dog, meaning she'll require a moderate amount of daily exercise.  She weighs 40 pounds.

We were told by the shelter that Iris barked a lot in her kennel.  She has been very quite in her foster home.  She doesn't dig in the yard and is not destructive in the house.  She sleeps quietly all night in her crate.

Iris needs to be kept indoors when you are not home because she can go over a 4 foot fence to come find you if left out in the yard.

If you are interested in possibly adopting Iris, please complete the on line application at the top of the page, then email Joan at

Iris is sponsored by the Idaho Domestic Animal Welfare Group.  Her adoption fee is $200 to help with her medical costs.
