is a handsome and delightful 2 year old smooth-coated border
collie. He is tall, long, and lanky and does need to fill
out a bit as he came into rescue quite underweight.
He is excellent with people, loves everyone he has met
since he came to his foster home, including children. However,
his strong herding drive is problematic around children,
and therefore he will not be placed with kids.
loves attention, loves to snuggle, and sometimes noses you
to solicit petting. He has been introduced to the resident
cats, but has shown no interest in them, only their toys!
Dart does love toys and his favorite activity to playing
fetch with a ball or Frisbee. He also enjoys wrestling with
his foster brother, an aussie mix. He seems to show interest
in herding, at least in herding other dogs who are playing
fetch, but has not yet been tested on sheep.
is learning about clicker training, but it doesn't appear
that he has had much if any previous training of even basic
commands. We are working on that in his foster home! He
is a quick learner.
Dart walks well with a gentle leader head collar or gentle
leader harness. He is house broken and crate trained.
Dart will make someone a great companion, he is a fun and
loving dog with great potential. Taking him through a positive
reinforcement based training class will be a requirement
of his adoption.
