Wilbur is a courtesy post, he is living in Suffolk County, Long
Island, NY, and is available to be seen at his foster home there. Wilbur
is an extra cute 18 month old Border Collie/ Jack Russell mix, or at
least that's our best guess. He is 40 lbs, very healthy, affectionate,
neutered, playful, crate trained and 110% housebroken. Wilbur gets
along great with most other dogs, he especially likes little dogs. He
can be defensive around larger male dogs. Wilbur does not live with
cats but he ignores the cats at the groomers home. His previous owners
had young children, who Wilbur loved. However, Wilbur was not
socialized outside of their home. Therefore Wilbur is quite protective
of his home and will be protective of any children in the home. He'd do
best with older kids or just adults, in a low-traffic home. Wilbur
needs an adopter who will continue his socialization. Wilbur has been
attending group obedience classes with his foster mom. He gets straight
'A's' at school and loves to go to class. He works well for different
handlers there. Unlike most purebred Border Collies, Wilbur is calm at
home and NOT high energy. He does not require a lot of exercise, he is
happy to play chase in the yard with a doggie friend friend, and/or go
on a 15 minute walk. Wilbur has been shaved in the pics, his normal coat
is about 3-4' long and wirey.

Wilbur is 100% housebroken and good with dogs except un-altered males
and strange dogs who are bigger than him. He loves my toy breeds. He
also loves little kids.
