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 dogs.
He is housetrained and has great indoor manners! As a matter of fact, Frank, while he does crate well and quietly, isn’t crated at all during the day while his foster mom is at work; he has dog door access to a fenced yard. He doesn’t bother anything in the house while he’s there with just the other four dogs in the household and no people. At night, Frank sleeps on a soft fluffy dog beside his foster mom’s bed, all stretched out and comfy, and he doesn’t make a sound – not even a dog snore!
Frank rides nicely in the car and he walks well on leash. Frank is okay with other dogs but probably would be best as an only dog. Right now, he mostly ignores the other four dogs in his foster home. He doesn’t appear to have any herding instinct, but he definitely has lots of instinct to make friends and be a good friend! He only wants to be with his person or people – he is super loyal and loving. He is looking for a family who will give him lots of attention, love, belly rubs, and will help him be the best dog he can be. Frank is very smart, loves to learn new things, and is only limited in learning by the person who teaches him.
He is very content with some, but not a large amount, of exercise. Again, he mostly just wants to hang out with his person. But Frank might enjoy agility or another dog sport, and we’d love to see his response. Who knows? There may be an athlete hiding inside Frank just waiting to be released! In his foster home he is fairly quiet (sometimes you forget he is taking a nap under the end table or under the curtains!) and laid back, likes to hang out on the back porch in the sun (within the safely fenced yard!) and watch the world go by, or take a snooze on the recliner.
Frank does like to “counter surf”, so kitchen and food items must be put up above his reach, and he’s working on learning not to “beg” for people food. He’s a good, hearty (dry kibble) eater, never picky, and has reached a nice, healthy weight for himself in foster care. He responds well when rewarded with healthy treats and is nicely food motivated for training. But… he will gladly “learn/work for love”, too! This boy definitely wants to please.
When Frank came into rescue, he had some mats that had to be removed, so some of the hair on his hindquarters isn’t yet as long or as gorgeous as it will be when it’s fully grown back. But he has what is promising to be a silky, shiny gorgeous rough (long) coat. And his distinctive tri-color and his markings are very unusual and good looking – Frank definitely stands out in a crowd and draws attention.
If you’re looking for a sweet, gentle, stunning, intelligent Border Collie companion just waiting to blossom with instruction, personal attention, and a lot of love, Frank just might be your boy!
