Dan is a four-year-old Border Collie; mixed with what has been guessed to be Catahoula, English spaniel and other breeds! Whatever his breed mix, he’s 100% wonderful!
Dan weighs in at approximately 60 lbs, and is current on all shots and vaccinations including a monthly heartworm preventative. He is very affectionate and very energetic, he would fit best into a family where he has a running partner (canine or human) to join him in play. He doesn’t get along very well with cats, not aggressive toward them, but he tends to chase them around and harass them. Most cats don’t seem to care for that activity! J
He gets along reasonably well with most dogs. Dan loves to play with tennis balls and sticks. He is crate trained and actually seems to prefer sleeping in his crate! He’s well mannered in the car, even if it’s not his favorite activity.
Although Dan can be a little timid at first, once he starts to play he is both rambunctious and affectionate. He’s been taught a few basic commands, and has been pretty easy to train if free from distractions. He’s not been exposed to many smaller children, but has behaved wonderfully with children age 9 and older.
If you feel your home might be the right place for this wonderful boy, the place to start is with the adoption application found at www.dfwrescueme.org/adopt. Once submitted, the foster will contact you to tell you more, and to arrange a meeting! The adoption fee for all of our dogs is $225.00, which includes their vaccinations and spay/neuter.
Dan is a participant in the DFWRM Guest program, so his care and ongoing custody are provided by his foster, not by DFWRM.
