Thank you, for choosing to adopt a rescued pup.
ARAMIS is such a sweetheart. Housebroken.
dob: March 17, 2015..neutered/micro-chipped male, BORDER COLLIE X....LOVES/NEEDS to run!!!!
NOT good with cats or small, hyper-active children(experienced and respectful children 12+yr-OK!.
PLEASE, copy and paste the application provided below into a new email, answer each question thoroughly, and send to firstname.lastname@example.org
This pup is in and will remain in foster care in Rutherfordton, NC(where they were rescued from) until their adoption is approved.
Upon request, we will be happy to send you more videos and pictures of this pup interacting with her H4S buddies, to help you get a better understanding of their personality and activity level and how they interact with their people and other pups.
ARAMIS We think he had an issue with his past owner when he started working AWAY from the home and they tried crating him...so, they ended up taking him to doggie daycare where he thrived, but it must have gotten too expensive for their current income and so sadly they chose to give him back to H4S, instead.
He LOVES other dogs and has a high-energy level and NEEDS LOTS and LOTS of running room and exercise with other dogs.
His trust in humans has been compromised by past owners who were stressed and he became VERY sensitive to their mood swings, so would escape their fenced-in(3 1/2'h backyard) to go play with the neighbor's dogs.
NEEDS a young, active and athletic person(prefers women) to be his person.
Sorry! NO APTS & NO HOMES WITHOUT A LG 6' h stockade FENCED YARD.
Other pups-relative's/neighbor's dog or a dog park would be 'EXCELLENT'.
Someone he can share 'CHASE ME' with! He LOVES to RUN/PLAY!!
BEST with an active early retiree or active work-from-home person.
LOVES women..but, is willing/open to befriend a man, IF they aren't aggressive, impatient, angry, type A personality! Gets along great with rescue 'dad' who is easy-going, loves to walk in the woods and has a calm, gentle demeanor.
Last person had a son who was submissive and happy to sit on his butt and play video game all day/night long, who didn't interact with Aramis and so never truly bonded with him. Owner read more into Aramis' way of saying 'let's play' and was over-protective of the son who shied away from Aramis....so between the change in income and the son's inability to have a relationship with Aramis, they decided that he needed to come back to Howlin4Spirit and find the RIGHT-FITTING fur-ever family, instead.
So, here we are!
Aramis is enjoying playing with all the other dogs at H4S, but he really does need a special person/home to call his own.
LOVES to sleep NEXT to/ON your bed, if allowed. Completely housebroken!
Gets along well with all sexes and sizes of other dogs.
WANTS TO PLEASE! Obedient. Knows 'no', 'sit' and 'down'.
Completed 1st obedience training course, per past Mom who loved him enough to take him through the course...a shame the rest of the family didn't appreciate/make time for him, also!
