I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and not good with cats.
Meet Kody, also known as Kody Bear. He is a male pup about 10-12 weeks old. At this point, we are not sure if Kody is purebred or a mix. Mom is a pure bred border collie, but we are not sure about Dad. Perhaps he could be part Australian Cattle Dog. Kody will most likely be a larger dog, if we are judging by the size of his paws.
For a pup, Kody is a very sweet, mellow guy. He just loves attention and will follow you everywhere. He also loves to run and play with his foster brothers and sisters. He should probably not be placed with a cat as he tends to want to terrorize the famly cat. He is your typical border collie and needs to be kept active. He is in the chewing stage right now like all puppies. A family with older children would be best as he tends to knock little ones down.
Kody has been started on his potty training and he is doing well. He uses potty pads inside and is starting to ask to go out to potty. But, we are not there yet! Bladders are not fully developed until 4 months of age, and that is when potty training commences
A border collie savvy home is a must who understands the demands for an energetic and active herding breed pup. Kody will require formal puppy obedience classes
Adopters must be committed to working with the destruction and energy associated with raising a puppy, along with housebreaking accidents. As with all puppies, socialization and puppy obedience classes are a must. This will ensure that you will have an outgoing, socialized, well-behaved, and well-adjusted adult dog in your family.
Kody's adopters will be required to complete a puppy questionnaire, as well as complete his series of puppy vaccinations, including rabies. In addition to his adoption fee, a refundable deposit is required to secure his sterilization, in accordance with state law.
If you are interested in meeting our dogs, please fill out an adoption application. We require a pre-approved application to be on file before any meet and greets are scheduled. The electronic application can be found on our website at http://www.bordercolliesinneed.org/border_collie_rescue_and_adoptions/adoption_application.html
