Nate was born in approx March of 2015. He is in desperate need of a a new foster home ASAP. We rescued him when he was 10 weeks old from Craigslist. Nate hasn't seemed to find the right people as he has been in and out of 4 homes already. Here is the latest update from his foster dad who needs him out by the end of this week as he is moving.

Personality  Nate is a very affectionate dog. He loves attention and being with small groups of people. He  has energy to spare, but can crash pretty hard when being active all day. He is very agile and  likes to jump to greet people, so be wary of his nails​. He no longer jumps on the person he's  greeting but may do so if not regularly trained. He is a pretty sound sleeper, even when with  company, but will make sure to wake up immediately if you try and leave him alone. Tends yelp if left  by himself or if he is feeling lonely/neglected. Will whine usually if needing to go potty. He loves  blankets and will attempt to play tug o war with you if it is dangled in front of him or snuggle  underneath it. Listens well the closer you are with him. He is very behaved without his leash outside  and does not seem tempted to jump 4 foot fences. Loves belly pats and being smothered with love  from a whole group of people. Be careful with paper, cardboard and stuffed items, because he will  attempt to make that item a chew toy immediately. Likes to hide his twisty bone in the silliest ways.     Health and body  No signs of discomfort. May have a bit of anxiety from being with different people and not being able  to settle into one place for very long. Eats regularly and drinks a great amount of water. Tends to  shed quite a lot, but smells really pleasant. He is very strong and active. Very slim and lanky, so he  may slip out of his collar if pulled at the right angle. He’s a very active dreamer and seems to have  pleasant nights. pee looks normal colored and stool tends to be soft mostly. Goes to the bathroom  about 3­4 times a day if fed 2 cups of kibble and bowl of water a day. about 1­2 times for #2 and 2­4  times for #1.Will sometimes do them separately, so spend a bit more time outside for him to finish.    Final Thoughts  Nate is a great, clever and lovable dog. He has a large amount of energy, so have fun teaching him  fun tricks. Enjoy being slobbered on and given many kisses. He has so much to offer so please take  take care of him! 

We are awaiting new pictures but the main picture is from today 8/25/16

 

Below are the older postings from the time we rescued him:

Meet Nate, a 10 week old blue heeler/collie mix. He came to us from South Jersey where we know he would of ended up in the wrong hands so we took him and his brother into our rescue.

We have learned that Nate loves affection and even does this little whimper when being rubbed. He loves to play outside with his brother and other dogs. Loves to run around with the kids but does tend to jump up often. He would be great in a family that is looking for a playmate as well as a cuddler..
If you think your family is just what Nate needs fill out the application today!
 
Update from foster mom 07/15/15

Hey there!

My name is Nate and I am almost 6 months old.

I am told I am great on a leash when you walk me because I never pull. Also I make my foster family proud with potty training, I bark when I have to go so there are no accidents in the house. One thing about me is I'm very affectionate and LOVE attention. Yes, I do bark when I’m looking for attention but I’m still young they say and learning. Everyone loves that I know quite a few tricks. I can sit, lay down and wait while you get my food ready and not eat it until you say ok. I’m looking for a playful home, yet also one that loves to give me attention and cuddles me. I enjoy playing with dogs and kids of all ages and sizes but haven't met a cat yet.

Also, my foster family has a member that is allergic to me so we are trying to get me a new home as soon as possible! The only negative I have is that I bark a lot and it's a very piercing bark. I do this when I need to go potty so I say that's not a bad thing! I also bark when I want attention and my foster mom cannot always give it to me at that exact time so I bark for a little bit and then will stop.

I really don't think I will be a big barker if I have the attention I crave. My foster family does what they can but I would really like an active family who is home a lot. I am a very sweet dog that just loves attention! Will you bring me into your family?
