How old is Abby?
Abby is a 4 year old Border Collie.
How did Abby become part of your family?
We adopted her in June 2017 after she was featured on a local rescue’s Facebook page. She lives with Addison’s disease which is an adrenal gland issue that prevents her from producing the hormones that help with stress. When she came home to us she was at least 10lbs underweight. Now she is perfect and thriving.
What is the one thing that you love the most about having a border collie as a pet?
What we love most is her spunk and spirit. She is like a little human who is intelligent and stubborn. (just like her human sister!

Abby knows the difference between cheap dollar store ones and the real official Wilson tennis ball. She also knows the difference between the words Go see mom, dad or Bee.
What else do you want people to know about your border collie?
Someone suggested that she could never live with another animal! She now lives amicably with 1 other dog, 2 cats and 8 chickens (which she guards from the neighbour’s dog).
