***SECURE FENCE REQUIRED***
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 some time every day to work on obedience training with a nice boy who could improve on some manners? (but he is pretty good)
· 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 nice 3 year old (neutered) male border collie. He was relinquished because he would escape from a very small city yard, despite the fence. Providing for his safety will be a major consideration for his new home. He should have a yard with a fence, preferable a 6 foot high fence. An e-fence would probably not work for this dog due to his strength and speed and determination (he is a Border Collie after all). 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 started basic obedience classes, but he has a long way to go. His youth and energy make sit and stay very challenging! He is a fast learner and loves squeaky toys. He is a quiet and gentle dog in the house.
Cas is being fostered in Center City, Minnesota. If you would be interested in learning more about Castle, please contact us:
