I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Josh is a very nice 5-year old pure bred border collie with one blue eye and one brown eye. He is a black & white smooth coat, although his hair is actually quite long for a smooth coat. He is a very sweet boy who is well socialized with other dogs. And Josh loves to play with toys and is ball obsessed. He also walks great on leash. Doesn’t appear to be a barker - and if he does it’s very minimal.
In Josh’s former life he must have enjoyed rocks as some of his teeth are ground down. Doesn’t bother him a bit though. Sadly Josh was picked up as a stray after he was hit by a car on July 5th (escaped yard from fear of fireworks perhaps????). Josh was a very lucky boy as he was taken to a shelter wherein the shelter's vet was able to place him under anesthesia and manipulate his hip back into place, therefore avoiding expensive hip surgery and a long recovery period. Today he shows no sign of being hurt, other than missing a small patch of hair on his back and a thin strip on his tail as the result of road rash.
All in all a very nice dog with medium energy and has lots of love to give for many years - Josh makes a great nap companion as he likes to rest his head on your stomach.
He has not been evaluated with cats.
