Border Collie Mix
Good with Dogs
Older children only
Fostered in Spokane, WA
Hey there! My name is Bodhi and I am a young border collie mix with quite the border collie personality. I was originally adopted through Power of the Paw as a puppy, but then I sadly wasn't socialized correctly. I began nipping at the children coming in an out of the home and was surrendered back to the rescue. I was just trying to control the craziness, but I guess it wasn't appreciated.
When I first arrived, I had a rough go at it all. I was very scared and didn't know how to handle all the confusion in my life. I am now doing phenomenally in my border collie savvy foster home. I obviously have fear of strangers and it takes a bit to warm up. But after I'm comfortable, I am an awesome dog.
I get along well with other dogs. I have been introduced to quite a few of them and done really well. Cats on the other hand... Well, I don't know how I'd do with them. It's likely that I probably would like to chase them though, just because of the type of dog I am. As for kids, because of my past, I need older, respectful children. If they don't know how to be respectful, I get unsure and scared. I don't bite but I do use my mouth to make it clear I am uncomfortable. My foster mom says we are working on teaching me not to talk all the time. I think that everyone needs to always hear me. Luckily, I'm smart so I'm catching on to the "shhhh" quite quickly. Since being here, I haven't had a single accident in the house and can be left alone, roaming. I use a doggie door currently. Just make sure the trash is up and there isn't any food on the counters. That will make me a bit curious.
If you know border collies and love the energy and intellegence of our breed, I might be the one for you. To meet me, head on over to http://powerofthepaw.org/
