I’m a medium sized Border Collie, about 35 pounds, and my vet thinks I was born around April 2014. I’m enjoying my time with my foster family, but I’d really like to find my forever home. Life hasn’t been easy for me so I’m only just learning what it’s like to relax. I wasn’t properly socialized so I am a bit timid and skittish. I’ve made huge improvements since coming to my foster family in May though!
My foster parents are trying to help me learn how to be more comfortable being outside, but I do have to be on a leash - I still find the world a little scary and may run away if I’m not. This means I need quite a bit of supervision - even to go out to the bathroom!
My favourite place in the entire house is underneath the kitchen table but I’m starting to get more
comfortable cuddling with my foster mom. I have the potential to be a very loving companion, and would do best in a home that isn’t too loud and ideally has another dog (or 2) to help me remember not to be frightened all the time. I am fine with kids if they are calm otherwise, I can get scared.
I think with the right home, I can learn that the world is really a wonderful place!
