found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, and up to date with shots.
Some early training issues include: In his former home he obviously must have been allowed to sleep on the kid's beds because he jumps right up and snuggles up. He has shown that he can climb at least 4 vertical feet to escape a pen and a stall when he wanted to get back to his "people pack". When he has "escaped", he has made a bee-line for the house door because he doesn't want to run away... he wants to be with people. He may outgrow this tendency, or may need more training to discourage his "escapes". He's almost but not quite past the puppy chewing stage yet, so his new person may have to hide shoes and keep an eye out for a little while longer, and provide some good chew toys for him.
Fleet has a strong streak of "obsessiveness" when it comes to chasing moving objects, including lunging at cars when on leash, racing up and down the fence line fixated on the neighbors' lawn mower, and chasing deer. It is important that his new guardian discourage these obsessive behaviors by giving Fleet a lot of exercise, mental stimulation, play time, and "work" time. He is a border collie that needs a "job" to do. He would work out best in a home in which he has an activity such as herding, agility, running partner, flyball, or other work/play that involves physical and mental exercise. Fleet is a very social dog and does not like to be all alone. He needs a home with at least one other still-active dog, both to have company when the people are away, and to play with. Fleet is available for adoption now.
