It's one of the most intelligent breeds, and one of the most playful. Get ready for Joanie, a year old Border Collie mix

Today, let's meet Joanie:

Joanie is about a year old, and is a Border Collie Mix. She is energetic and very smart. She loves to go for long walks and loves to play with toys. She will even toss the toys around by herself if no one is available to play with her. Joanie would love an active home or family that will take her running or hiking. This great dog has tons of potential and will make a wonderful addition to a loving family. Plus trainer Alex from will add in a free training lession if you adopt Joanie.

Don’t forget, if you adopt our featured pet, you’ll not only get a loving companion, but you’ll get a $50 Agriventures Agway gift card.
