Kenny's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with kids.

Kenny's Story...
Kenny just loves little kids. At his foster home he will sit next to the grandson’s jumper or stroller just to make sure he is okay and will happily let him crawl or pull on him. When the family’s granddaughter goes outside, Kenny insists on following to make sure she isn’t alone. He is one very dedicated “nanny collie.” He has not been around children over the age of eight, but it is likely that he would be just as dedicated to older children as he is to the little ones.

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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kenny, a Minneapolis Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie for sale in Minneapolis, or seeking a Collie dog from a breeder in Minneapolis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Minneapolis already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Minneapolis breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Collie breeders who help with Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Minneapolis paves the way for another one to be saved.
