Facts about Justin

  • Breed: Collie Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: Kelly P
Update 4/25/2016. Justin is STILL looking for his forever home. He is approximately 7-8 years old and needs a special person who can understand and work with his various triggers that may cause him to be aggressive. Justin has come so far since being released from the Hounds of Prison Education (HOPE) program in 2010. His foster family has worked long and hard to teach him appropriate behaviors, but he still has triggers that cause him to react. As long as a person understands the triggers and knows how to help him through the situation, he can be a wonderful, loving dog. He continuously makes his foster family laugh at some of his silly ways of getting their attention. And he is a terrific snuggler and lover boy! He is quite attached to his foster mom and stays by her side looking out for her, especially when everyone else had gone to bed for the night. He just needs the right person to come along and adopt him. He has waited so long for his forever home. Are you the person he has been waiting for?

Since Justin was a HOPE dog, he is eligible to receive a lifetime of consultations with a HOPE trainer, if needed.

Update 2/15/2013. Are you looking for a smart dog who can quickly learn new tricks? Then Justin might just be the dog for you. Since his release from prison (the HOPE program that is!) in 2010, Justin has adjusted to living in a household full of noise and constant commotion. While Justin LOVES most other dogs, he does not like small children and would do best in a home with no children unless they are teenagers who know how to be pack leaders. Justin is very protective of his house and fenced in yard, but is the biggest lover when you’re ready to give him attention. He will play for hours with his brother and sister and quickly learned that barking while playing will earn him a time out in his crate. Justin continues to have some issues with certain triggers (ie., lawnmowers, motorcycles, etc.), but has come a long way since first entering his foster home. And while he doesn’t like strangers entering or leaving his foster home, once they are inside he’s good with them. Justin is a great walker/runner and does not pull on his leash. He would do really well in a house where he could get a lot of mental stimulation such as learning new tricks, playing games or even trying some agility classes. Justin is no couch potato! He is ready and looking forward to helping you get your much needed exercise! Since Justin was a HOPE dog, he is eligible to receive a lifetime of consultations with a HOPE trainer if needed. Justin has a lot of love to give and has been waiting a long time for the right person to come along and give him that love. He needs an owner that will be the pack leader, help him through his triggers, mentally challenge him and give him a lifetime of love.

About Furry Friends Network - Dog Adoptions

About Our Rescue Group...

Furry Friends Network is a non profit, all-volunteer animal adoption organization. Our philosophy is to help those animals that did not ask to be born, that are often the result of human ignorance. Any animal, no matter its age, can offer love and companionship to the right person.

Furry Friends Network is not a shelter, but instead uses a foster home network to house the animals until permanent, indoor homes can be found, offering second chances at lifetimes of love and happiness.
