Norman's Info...

Norman's Story...
Norman is a very handsome boy with a wonderful, friendly and loving nature. He is good with people of all ages and other pets. He is still a puppy at just over 8 months old and will have some filling out to do. He has an unusual coat due to his breeding but all the best traits of both breeds as well. As an adult Norman will be approximately 60 - 80 lbs.


Norman has been raised in a loving home environment and is very well behaved for his age. He has learned his basic obedience, including a first round of obedience classes, with hand signals and is fully house and crate trained. Of course due to his age he will need someone to continue with his training but he has been well socialized and could easily fit into any family. He is a tall dog and would really appreciate having a back yard to play in. He would be fine as a second dog or as an only pet. He would do best with at least one good walk each day.


Norman is friendly with everyone and easily comes to you for a pet. He is especially fond of men but is happy to be with anyone. He enjoys playing with toys and can keep himself occupied but also loves to be near his people and will just lie at your feet while you work or watch tv. He is an intelligent dog that learns quickly, is food and praise motivated, and eager to please. He is very loyal and loving with his people.


Norman does not have a mean bone in his body and has known nothing but love throughout his short life. He was well socialized with other dogs, cats and people of all ages and would be fine with children in the home that would enjoy playing with him. He is very gentle, calm and quiet in the home. He is still a puppy in many ways however and should continue to be crated until he can be fully trusted in the home. He will pick things up and carry them around but has never been destructive. He likes stuffed toys and a good chew bone in his crate while you are away and is very happy to see you upon your return. Norman is good about letting you know he needs to go out and is very clean in the home.


Norman is a big beautiful dog that will make a wonderful family companion and a great pet. He would do best in a home with a good sized backyard where he could run and play and would be happy to share his space with another friendly canine.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Norman, a Hamilton Curly-Coated Retriever/Border Collie puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Curly-Coated Retriever/Border Collie for sale in Hamilton, or seeking a Curly-Coated Retriever/Border Collie puppy from a breeder in Hamilton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hamilton 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 Hamilton 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 Curly-Coated Retriever/Border Collie breeders who help with Curly-Coated Retriever/Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hamilton paves the way for another one to be saved.
