Connor ~ ADOPTED



I am Connor, and I am a 10 year old smooth coat border collie. I am anxious to share the best years of my life with you!!

Some people think I am a mix, but my foster mom says that my behavior is very border collie!  It may be hard to see, but I even have a few white hairs on the tip of my tail -- like all border collies do!

I love to watch the sheep at my foster home and run and chase my foster brothers and sisters.  And don't let my age fool you...I can run with the best of them!  We had an 8 month old puppy at my foster home and we loved to chase together.  Look at me run! (but don't worry, it is the puppy doing all that barking, not me.)


I love to ride in the car and travel with my foster family. I can travel in a seatbelt harness or a crate...it doesn't matter to me.  I can enjoy the ride either way.

I am very friendly and love the attention that people give me.  I try to be a good boy, and my foster mom says that I am the "pawfect" gentleman.  I can sit and down and come and stay...and I can "come close" for snuggles and ear rubs.  

In my previous home I was not allowed on the furniture, so I am quite comfortable just finding a spot on the floor or on a doggy cushion to relax...but when I am invited, I do enjoy being up close with my people.

Here's a little more of Connor, looking for his forever friend!

I can't wait to share my best years with my very own family. Are you that family?

Connor is being fostered in Maine.
