"I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish, I wish tonight!" Kurt is closing his eyes and wishing with all his might for a home for the holidays!
Kurt is a 6-7 month old heeler/border collie/shadow puppy blend. He weighs in at about 40lbs, but could stand to lose a few, as he shared a kennel at the shelter with another dog, and we're pretty sure he was partaking of a bit more than his food allowance. Kurt has a wonderful personality and disposition. He gets along really well with kids, dogs, cats, and goats (yes, goats)! Kurt is the perfect balance of energy and activity level, as he will play when engaged, but is also happy to just be by your side and lie by your feet. He soaks up human affection and returns it in kind. Kurt is kennel trained, and his foster parents are polishing his potty-training skills. Kurt knows the command "sit" and because he is very treat-motivated and has a penchant for learning new things (probably due to his herding breed DNA), he will be a fun pooch to train.
Kurt is current on vaccinations, neutered, microchipped and has tested negative for heartworms. Current on flea preventative and heartworm preventative.
If you are interested in havng this cute, spotty-toed pooch in your life, please fill out a Dog Adoption Application
*Local adoptions (New Orleans and surrounding parishes) preferred. We do NOT ship animals
*Before applying for a puppy under 6 months old, please note that we are looking for homes where someone is home frequently, or for those applicants who work 8 hr work days, we ask that you have made arrangements for someone to come home at least once during the day to allow the dog to go out for a potty break.
Puppies go through multiple teething stages during their first year. Providing your puppy with appropriate toys specially designed for teething puppies can prevent damage to belongings, but more importantly, prevent your dog from choking or suffering a dangerous intestinal obstruction. During the earlier stages, crate him or her when you can't directly supervise him.
Our adoptions include a foster period of 4-6 weeks so that you can be sure that this pet is a good fit without any pressure, and we are available to answer any behavior or training questions during that time (and beyond, if you wish).
