Jeff is about 2 1/2 years old, he weighs 58.6 pounds. We think he is a Collie/Shepherd mix, but we are welcome to suggestions.
Update 5/30/17: One of our awesome volunteers has taken Jeff home to foster him. He was scared at first and didn't want to go in the house. She worked with him on this and now he will go in and out. We consulted a trainer and Jeff will be going to a basic doggie boot camp starting June 11th. Until then his foster mom will be working on leash training and socialization. Will update more soon.
This boy was found by a family that had been caring for him for about month. They loved him because he is very friendly, always happy and loved their dog. Unfortunately they couldn't keep him with their family so they called us.
Jeff was scared to get in the car, but he did well on the ride to the vet's office. He was also scared at the vet' office, but did calm down when he learned that everyone was kind to him.
He was treated for worms, given all his vaccines and heart worm medication, neutered and micro chipped.
Jeff was in a foster home for a couple of weeks and the family got him over some of his anxieties, but unfortunately they couldn't keep him. Jeff is house trained, he learned that he could walk through door ways without being harmed but still needs some work.
He needs a family that will work with him on being comfortable indoors. He loves other dogs and gets along great with all of our other rescue dogs. We feel he would do better with a dog his size or smaller.
Jeff would do best with a fenced yard where he can be safe while playing outside.
