Courtesy Posting This Border Collie is Not Part of This Group Please Contact: Peter: Petr@hal-pc.org for more information . If you want to know more about Expresso please email Petr@hal-pc.org for more informationand introduce yourself and the lifestyle you will offer him to . Meet Espresso! This handsome healthy 7 yrs young, medium-sized Border Collie (38 lbs) sweetheart is looking for a new home due to both of his owners having health issues. His owners love him dearly but are worried that if something happened to them hewould end up in a shelter for months on end or worse something we could not bear and it's Expresso's time to have a new journey in life. He is a
energetic, bright, happy, playful and intelligent dog who loves his ownersand is very focused on them. He can be cautious in new situations and takes a little bit of time to check things out and read his surroundings. Expresso does alert bark to announce people at the door never continuing the bark. He
has lived indoors and is very well-trained. He loves chasing squirrels, going for frequent walks, and would make an excellent flyball or agility companion. Espresso has not been around children much in the past few years and we don't feel smaller children would be appropriate (8 and up calm), and has
not lived with cats but he has been friendly with a neighborhood cat but still may be uncertain of kitties better with dog savvy types. He has had obedience training and understands sit, stay, down, up, wait, leave it, take, and no. He just returned from 21 days at Shel-Mar Kennels
Dog Obedience School awesome for teaching dogs. He is great on the leash! Espresso likes most other dogs, but it can depend on the situation and how the other dogs act towards him. Generally, he is more comfortable with female dogs. Leash introductions help him when meeting new dogs and the training center feels this is the most positive way for all dogs to meet before a play date. He does enjoy mingling at a dog park that is not overly busy. There is an application and home visit to adopt Expresso. His adoption donation is $200 and donated back to At Home Houston Border Collie.

All dogs are fully vaccinated, spayed or neutered, heart-worm tested and on heart-worm prevention, they live inside the home as a family.

All dogs adoption donation $250 unless noted otherwise noted in the bio. There an adoption application to be filled out, home visit where applicable, meet and greet, sometimes spend the nights for very special pups, adoption contract to be filled out and spay/neuter contracts when a dog is under 6 months of age or not fully developed for best growth potential. I go above and beyond in health; nutrition; and training in the living environment developing the dog for a better tomorrow.
