Shorty is a SUPER friendly, young and energetic Corgi x Border Collie who is searching for his new forever home. Shorty loves to play fetch, go for long walks and to curl up in your lap. Shorty loves everyone he meets however does have a past.
You see, Shorty's previous family mis-managed him around their 1.5 year old daughter and it resulted in a bite which is why he has joined Revolutionary Rescue. Shorty had always been fantastic around children and still is great with older children. His best friend was a severely autistic boy who he adored. Even though we know Shorty is friendly towards children because of the previous bite we are looking for kids over the age of 12.
Shorty is in great health and is quite active; he loves his daily walks. Shorty is currently being fostered with another dog and a cat and is learning a whole new world. Shorty had never been socialized with dogs so he is quite growly when first introduced however he has since started to play with his foster brother. He hasn't started any fights but will either need a dog free home or a dog who respects his need for space.
Shorty's new adopters will be required to complete some kind of formal Positive Reinforcement classes. Shorty will sometimes guard his food so we are looking for someone who is able to work through his mild guarding issues.
Overall Shorty is a wonderful dog who is going to make someone very very happy and we are very positive that his training will continue to make him an even better more socialized dog.
