found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with kids.
Although Kenny loves all children, he does not love all dogs. At his foster home, there are some dogs that he gets along well with, while there are others that he has a real grudge against. He will guard his food bowl and must be fed separately from those dogs that he does not like. He has been this way since he was just a pup, so unless he is adopted as an only dog, it will be important for him to meet and “approve” any other dogs at his forever home. He has not been exposed to cats, so that is an unknown factor.
Kenny is fully housetrained and knows several commands including “sit” and “off.” Like all young dogs he is excitable, but he knows that if he wants attention, he must first sit, before he gets his reward. When he greets new people, his excitement will sometimes get the better of him and he will jump up, but he is working to try to control himself. His foster home is in a rural area, and he loves to spend extended periods of time outside without a fence or leash. He is completely reliable about not wandering, though he is showing some herding behavior and might try to chase cars if he were in a busy area. He also loves to chase chippies and squirrels, so a fence would be necessary if he were adopted into an urban environment. There are horses at his foster home and he does try to herd them. He is a quiet boy, except when he is in a heated chipmunk chase.
Kenny is a happy, loving, playful, young collie who would love to find a forever home that included young children for him to mother. He would be perfectly happy as an only dog, but might accept a doggie companion if he was allowed to check him out first. So, if your family is looking for a child’s nanny that will devote himself to your little ones and will work for peanuts (okay kibble), Kenny is just the man.
