Thank you for your interest in our available dogs. We like to get to know the dogs in our care prior to posting them for adoption so if you do not see the dog you are looking for, feel free to put an interest form in telling us what you are looking for in a forever friend. We love to "match-make" and we may have a dog that is not yet posted that is perfect for you. Once we have an interest form from you, one of our staff will contact you (in 7 - 10 days) to discuss your needs in detail as well as the dog(s) you are interested in.
Please note, if you are unable to see the pictures of our dogs, your browser may not be up to date.
I'm a mouthy guy who is working hard on learning my manners! I love to play but don't always know when to settle down. I was not given much direction early on in life, but my foster mom is teaching me so much. I'm a great watch dog and I have learned to bark only twice as an alert, then stop. I am learning impulse control and how to walk nicely on a leash. I am crate trained and I am learning how to share with other dogs. This has been a challenge for me and for my canine foster siblings. I learned how to use the doggie door in just a few minutes and I would love for you to take me home and teach me more things!
Breed: Border Collie
Color: White - with Black
Age: 14 months
I love to go on walks but putting a harness on me can be a challenge...I prefer to think of it as a game! I am working on many behaviors in my foster home to help me be the best I can be. I have learned to go into my crate when told, I am learning hand targeting and how to be 'caught' in case I get loose or into a dangerous situation. I have also learned sit and flat (lay down) in just a short time. I am eager to learn, super smart and motivated by food which makes me easier to train.
I currently live with 2 other dogs and I am learning to share my 'things' with them but it has been hard for me. We play nicely together without toys, and I have been to the dog park without incident. I would most likely chase cats so I should not go to a home where they live.
Because I was not given boundaries as a puppy, I can be very mouthy and not realize that it hurts people. My foster mom is teaching me how to be gentle, but I would do best in a home with teenagers or no children.
I love to play tug, and I love to chase anything you can throw! I also enjoy quiet time in my crate with cow hooves or other chewables.
I need a family who will continue to help me learn boundaries and provide me with consistency and structure. I love to work, so an active family who will keep me active both mentally and physically will go a long way toward helping me be my best self. I need daily exercise and lots of attention from my humans.
