I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
WOW, this is one sweet doggie! His photo does not do him justice; he is so cute and has a wonderful smile! I am guessing that along with the Collie or Sheltie in his background, there might be spaniel and for sure sled-dog type also.
Colbee is a high-energy dog who would do best with an energetic/athletic family who would have the time to give him lots of exercise and playtime. He gets along my two Labs and really really really wants to make friends with the resident cats, but his unbounded enthusiasm is a bit much for them and after consultation, they are reserving judgment for the moment!
There is no food or resource guarding and I can take a bone right out of his mouth. He loves to play with balls, but does not fetch. Rather, he plays "keep away", and plays with it like a cat plays with a toy! I have not observed him around children yet, but I am guessing he will be fine.
He is currently learning manners and I have been working with him on clicker training to teach him to sit, walk politely on a leash and learning not to jump on people. He is kept crated when I cannot watch him as he has not learned yet what is a chewable and what is not, but I expect he will catch on! He is housebroken and there have been no accidents in the house. This dog is a real diamond in the rough!!! With enough exercise and training, he will make a great friend for someone!
