I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with cats.
Introducing Cash! This totally darling, classic black and white rough coated purebred is a complete mush. And oh so handsome too - just lookit that smile! This winner is a happy, easygoing guy that can't wait to have a family of his own to devote himself wholeheartedly. Outgoing Cash adores all people and whatever kind of attention they have to offer. His primary pleasure is the company of his human friends - and the more attention they give him, the better! Belly rubs, baths, brushing, even putting in eyedrops - it's all good to this boy who thrives on being the center of things. When being petted, Cash has even been known to close his eyes and point his head to heavenward - clearly, nothing could be better! He's a lover and will roll over on a dime to stretch out and will definitely try and get pets or scratches anytime he can and with anybody that has a free hand.and could last for hours if it was up to him. He will come along side you and nudge you to pet him and let you know he is there by your side. He is polite but not overbearing when meeing new people, and he just wants to be with his humans doing whatever it is they are doing. If he can't go along he is a "sad" puppy till you come back. He is gentle, but can get excited and jump up, so he's not a candidate for homes with small children.. Like most Border Collies, Cash is going to attach strongly to his family and sure loves to be included in everything they do, be it out on adventures or lounging around at home. He seems to get along OK with some other dogs, although he's not at all playful, and he doesn't much like to share things. Hewill probably be happiest as an only dog, although he lives peaceably with two females in his foster home. Cash has shown but little interest in cats and not much herding instinct. This fairly mellow boy doesn't play with toys much at all either but is most content when chewing on a good bone! He loves to go on walks and loves car rides, he never wants them to end, especially if the destination is the pet store where he can browse! Makes you want to jump in the car and go around the block just for him. At 8 years old, Cash has reached that lovely Border Collie middle age, and no longer needs hours and hours of exercise to be content. Of course, he's still a Border Collie and although he's a very relaxed and quiet dog overall, he is always up for some action when you want go, be it for a walk or a hike, some work in the garden, or just going for a car ride. This sometimes goofy guy will even give a token bark or two when exited, like when it's time to go for a walk or out and about in the car! He is a very relaxed dog overall, needing only light exercise - definitely a lower energy BC - but will go when you want go! This sweetest of fellows has quite a heartwrenching story. Originally from a Kansas shelter, where he ended up after he was found in the middle of a four-lane highway and his owner refused to pay the shelter $25 to reclaim him, he came to WBCR significantly overweight with no hair on his lower legs and some significant eye ulcerations and minimal vision. It has finally been determined he has some sort of autoimmune condition, exacerbated by sunlight, which mostly affects his eyes. Currently he is on medications- which he will need for the rest of his life - and is doing well, but does also need to be kept out of the sun as much as possible. If you are looking for a mellower Border Collie who just wants to be your loyal companion, Cash may be the one for you! He's a happy, easygoing guy with just the right amount of spunk, who just loves to hang out and be a part of things. Cash will do best in a quiet, adult-only household. He's sure to brighten anyone's day, and he can't wait to have a family of his own to devote himself wholeheartedly.
Cash is being fostered in a loving home near Denver, Colorado.
