Ned came to us from an East Bay shelter in early 2012. He was adopted by a couple but was returned to us when they split up and neither could keep him. He was described as a sighthound mix but it turns out that DNA shows that he is primarily border collie! He has been up at King's Kastle for several months and is more than ready for a new home. Here are Colleen's comments: Ned is an independent guy that prefers not to compete for attention in thehome, so he is ideal for someone wanting a single dog. He is best suited for an active family willing to take him on regular walks/runs/hikes. He does well on leash and enjoys playing ball. Although he walks well with other dogs, he is generally intolerant of other dogs in a group setting, so steer clear of dog parks and off leash beaches. He is friendly with people and has fairly solid recall skills. He would be fine with older children with a healthy understanding and respect for animals. Ned is generally affectionate and sweet, he simply has a lower tolerance of the excitement generated from multiple dogs at play. Ned will thrive with an adopter that understands the value of providing clear rules and leadership, instilling rules and expectations, and will engage him in consistent exercise.
