border collie x wolfhound


Nova, is an 18 month old Border Collie x Wolfhound. She is the perfect mixture of playful and lazy. If she is around her people inside she is happy to lay on her mat (or you) and go to sleep.

Nova seems to be quite well house trained. If she is to be left outside by herself she will need to be stimulated, or have another dog friend as she can get bored and try to stir up trouble.

She is still being socialised so this is ongoing and her new owners will need to continue with this. On walks she can get a bit excited around other dogs. We have been working with her and she is making progress. She just wants to meet each and every dog she sees but this is not always a good idea, once she does “say hello” to polite dogs she is really good with them. She will need an owner who is willing to work on this so she can reach her full potential.

Nova is such a loving and loyal dog, she is very energetic so will need an active person or family willing to walk her regularly and spend plenty of time with her, Border Collies are not a breed of dog that can be left in a back yard alone for any length of time. Nova loves affection, playing fetch and being around her people. She will be a wonderful addition to a person or family who is committed to giving her the training and stimulation she needs.
