Luke's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and not good with cats.

Luke's Story...
Luke can cast a spell on you. He craves human attention and knows how to be cute to get it. He needs a human that will love him deeply, but still give him structure. He loves everyone that he’s met so far and loves to kiss. He knows his commands and walks nicely on a leash, but obedience class is a must to cement his bond and respect for his human. He is about 14 months old and with proper training can be a truly great dog. He has good house manners and is dog door trained. He crates reasonably well, but prefers to be out with his humans. (If he doesn’t want to go in the crate, he’ll belly up and wiggle with a heart melting grin. So, his human can’t be pushover.) While out on walks he has not reacted to other dogs, even with dogs barking at him. He didn’t even react to a herd of about 8 deer walking up the street. But, cats are a NO GO, or rather Luke is too much all go when it comes to cats. Within his new household, he wants to be the dominant male and has been possessive about food and foster mom, so he would do best as an only dog or paired with a submissive dog. He is untested with small children and he might not accept them as being in charge of him. He is a determined guy that will climb 6’ fencing, but only to follow his foster mom. It is not to roam or escape, just to be with her. He’s only been with her a few weeks, so this behavior could dissipate when he knows that he has a home and that his human will return. It’s tough to lose your home at such a young age and he’s pretty unsettled. He needs a home where someone is mostly home, since for now he needs to be crated or locked inside when left. Also, block wall type fencing or any type of wall that he can’t climb is recommended.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Luke, a Monrovia Border Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie for sale in Monrovia, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Monrovia.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Monrovia already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Monrovia breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Border Collie breeders who help with Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Monrovia paves the way for another one to be saved.
