Colt

Border Collie mix Australian Cattle Dog mix Neutered Male 3 years 51.2 pounds

This great little guy loves people and being close so you can snuggle!  He is eager to please and is super sweet, playful and smart.  He knows several commands, but you may want to go with him to a good obedience class because he can learn so much more.  He’s got a soft and sensitive temperament, so be patient and keep it positive.  In his eagerness to please he may get anxious.  He is wonderful on leash, and barely pulls at all.  He may jump on you when anxious to get reassurance, but his manners are generally pretty good.  His previous family notes that he resource guards food and toys and that he is not necessarily good around other dogs or cats.  It has also been noted that Colt has a tendency to growl when first presented with strange dogs.  It’s possible his growling is due to fear and not aggression.  Please introduce him to other animals carefully and supervise them until you know how he’ll respond.  It is possible that the resource guarding can be addressed or worked around.  Colt is housetrained and rides well in the car.  Also, he went into a crate readily and we think it will be easy to crate train him.  He will need to be welcomed into your home to live inside with his family.  Colt is very active and quite playful.  He loves to play fetch and also enjoys playing in his water bowl!  He might enjoy outings that include opportunities to play in the water.  He could also make a great walking or running companion.  Colt is a super affectionate dog with unlimited potential for a wonderful addition to some lucky family!
