Meet Castle (“Cass”)
· Are you looking for a companion who can keep you company on your morning run but who will cuddle with you on the sofa in the evening?
· Are you willing to devote a little time to teach and play? He is a fast learner, he will sit, shake, paws up, roll over and more.
· Are you willing to be outside with a dog who needs to learn how to play with balls and Frisbees, so he can replace a hunting instinct with an drive to play?
If you answered yes to these questions, then we might have the dog for you:
Castle is a very handsome and nice 4 year old male Border Collie. A fence is helpful for Cass, but you should be out with him in a fenced yard to play with him, or walk him on a leash. He has a strong prey drive and will chase squirrels, chipmunks and cats. Oh yes, that’s another thing – he does need to be in a home without any cats.
He loves attention. He will ask to be petted and rolls over easily to have his belly rubbed. This is a great indicator for his trust in people. He gets along with other dogs in the home. He does well with small children and has not demonstrated any herding behaviors with them.
He has graduated from basic obedience class, and he will focus on you as he likes attention and treats. He is a fast learner and loves squeaky toys. He is a quiet and gentle dog in the house, but loves to spend time chasing toys and balls. When you stop, he stops. He has a very good off switch. If you spend time in the evening watching a movie, he will do the same with you, he likes being with his people.
Cass is being fostered in Center City, Minnesota. If you would be interested in learning more about Castle, please contact us:
