Did you ever know someone who was a great athlete and a smart guy, but also a little shy and awkward? That’s Zeke! He is a handsome 2-year-old Border Collie/Blue Heller mix. His foster family raves about his intelligence, and has trained him to be an excellent running/biking partner. He is amazing with a Frisbee! Zeke is made for agility training. He is house trained and will go to his crate when directed.
But like that awkward athlete, Zeke needs time to warm up to new people, unfamiliar situations, and has some separation anxiety. True to his working dog breed, Zeke is most happy when he has a job to do. He does “herd”, so his perfect family will need to understand and redirect this behavior.
Zeke enjoys doggy teammates. Because of his high energy, though, we don’t recommend a home with small children. Did we mention that once he is comfortable, he’s all about snuggles, belly rubs, and looking at you with his beautiful brown eyes?
Zeke could be your MVP. Could you be the understanding coach he needs?
