SHEP is a loveable, beautiful 2 year old Border Collie, he is neutered, fully vaccinated and house trained.
Shep sleeps in alcove laundry room but will also sleep in his crate, he eats ONLY dog food/treats. Shep follows basic commands, does not chew or destroy and is VERY affectionate. Likes to be where you are when home (unless he’s tired from outdoors, or in the evening)
Non aggressive (never bitten anyone, or other dog)
Looking for a home with adults, who:
Have TIME and ENERGY to enjoy him. (No children, he tends to herd them!)
Fenced yard, plenty of areas to frequently exercise him throughout the day.
Companionship, attention, and love. Would love to find a home not too far from ours (Kincardine) so we could offer to dog sit on occasions
Walks, catching a ball and frisbee (very focussed when doing so), taking a dip in the lake, being brushed and stroked. Shep is good in the car, long or short. He loves the snow and being outside in the winter.
AREAS that need improvement
Walking on leash (we have a trail in backyard, walk him there 95% of time, not used to the city) He is very intelligent, and would benefit from agility/walking training
Barks when people pass by, usually controlled with “ no barking” command, or (especially) “sit” and reward
You must be willing to meet, and spend time with Shep in our home to see if you are right for each other, agree to an adoption contract.
Be willing to communicate, provide updates on his well being.
Adoption fee $1,000
