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, good with kids, and good with cats.
Hi, I’m Dougal Allan Border Collie! I am about 18 months to 2 years old and very sweet. I love kids (even little kids), men, women, and kind of ignore cats. My foster mom thinks I wasn’t socialized a lot with other dogs when I was a pup, so I need a bit of work or a savvy older, bigger dog to teach me the ropes as I do bounce around a lot with other dogs.
I wandered onto a farm in western Iowa about one month ago, made friends with the five-year-old boy, and didn’t leave. Efforts to get me back to my real home have been unsuccessful.
I love to be held and cuddled even though I’m a tall boy: about 20” at the shoulder and 55” standing on my back legs. Which I like to do to give my big hugs! I wrap my paws around you, put my head against your chest, and kiss you! Even though I’m tall, I only weigh about 45 lbs.
I have basic house manners and know sit, off, and down. I come when called in the yard. I still need some Basic Obedience classes to retain my skills. I know how to walk nicely on my harness and leash and like riding in the car. I am good with baths and having my nails trimmed. I take treats gently and will kiss you a lot if you like. If you don’t, I’m okay with that, too. I love meeting new people! My foster mom has stopped my counter-surfing, but I may need a bit of work when I get to your house. Surprisingly, what I really go after is empty plastic food containers – I ignore the food!
I may have been kind of spoiled in my previous home as I seem to try to get by with things like jumping up and mouthing if you let me – so I’m probably not a good choice for a first-time dog owner. Like all BCs, I need to have rules to follow.
You might not be able to see from my photo but I am a beautiful tri-colored Border Collie. I have little bits of brown on my legs, tail, and eyebrows. I have a magnificent tail which is fluffy and luxurious. My coat is not too long.
I am house trained but may mark a bit in new situations. That will probably change when I’m neutered. (Which they tell me will be this week!) Everyone at the veterinarian’s office thinks I’m gorgeous. I don’t seem to be bothered by fireworks, even close by. I don’t bark much although I will alert you if the mail carrier is around!
If you would like a calm (for a Border Collie) companion to live in the house with you and be your best buddy, pick me!
