Introducing Mr Banjo a fun loving dog in the making Border Collie who enjoys spending time with his people and having fun!! Yes he really likes to have his people time: loves to take walks or a jog, enjoys chasing squirrels in a secured fenced yard, LOVES to swim as this really helps him be a confident young BC. Banjo is an owner return to avail of his own, thus what I have discovered about Banjo is he does have some past experiences that can make him a little uncertain of himself, missing quality steps in socialization years. Through confidence and positive training with me he is learning he can go further and be a fulfilled pup earning affection and taking direction with toys/swim/leash time/settle inside the home. Swimming with a special toy really helps boost his confidence/endorphins as he enjoys the fun challenge of going in on the deep end of the pool, he could really enjoy a water sport or walks along a trail that has a stream/pond. Banjo is uncertain of movement as this is part of his BC traits, he would do best in a quieter home without too much coming or going, as well as continuing healthy boundaries using the crate especially with the front door as this makes him anxious with a desire to chase out the door and it is a must that Banjo have an owner that can be his leader and give him further direction. With is former owner Banjo enjoyed going to work at her chiropractic office and visiting with clients; long walks along the river in the am with swim time; running fun errands with the immediate family and trips to the dog park occasionally. He would make a great travel companion as new adventures on leash bring him closer to his people as much as he would enjoy an active retried family or an interactive family who liked to enjoy the busy in life time with their 4 legged companion. Banjo walks well on the leash and settles into a speed after a little trick work; he crates nicely; house trained; enjoys fun balls and toy play and would be a great Frisbee contender as he likes to jump up and off you like a fun Frisbee dog. For Banjo his journey to his forever home would be a home either worked from home or a hearty break during a work day, if children just the 1 child 10 + who wanted that close relationship with their pup would suit him, most comfortable with dogs smaller than him and learning more about dogs his size but he is very curious/learning more and does show play positions enjoying some chase and herd fun. If you travel and were looking for a hiking buddy Banjo could go faster or slower you show him the speed!! Adopting Banjo does require an application, meetings, and home visit where applicable and YES he will travel for the right home and yes he is fully vetted with the standard adult donation of $300.
