I am already neutered, housetrained, and up to date with shots.
"SAM" -- is a 6 year old blue merle Border Collie or Australian Shepherd cross (possibly with Spaniel). He was given up when his family moved to a new neighborhood and he barked when tied out. He's on the large side--about 50-60 lbs, and overweight. Sam is very high energy. He's friendly, obedient, and wants nothing more to do than play ball all day and be with his person. He's a compulsive ball player, crate trained and good with older children. He's trustworthy off-lead. Sam would make a great hiking companion. He is fine with other dogs, mostly ignoring them. Because of his exuberance he probably shouldn't be placed with small children--he would knock them over. Sam is being fostered in Massachusetts.
You MUST first fill out an adoption application AND have a home visit BEFORE being considered for any NEBCR dog. As this process can take time, we recommend that you complete these first 2 steps BEFORE inquiring about a specific dog.
For more information on Sam, or other dogs we have available for adoption, please see our web site www.NEBCR.org.
