Jack is an adorable and sweet young boy! He will turn one
year old on February 28th. Jack is an active young guy who
loves his frisbee and just about anything he can drop at
your feet if a frisbee is not readily available - ball,
stuffed animal, empty water bottle, etc., etc., etc.! Jack
is black and white with an adorable split face and drop
coat is medium length and silky - rather than long and "fluffy"
and yet not quite a typical "smooth" coat. Very wash and
wear - if you've ever played outdoors during a spring thaw,
you know what that can mean:)
Jack is hesitant to meet new people. The best thing to do
when a new person appears is to have them totally ignore
Jack until he feels comfortable enough with their presence
to go to them. Then a treat can be offered or dropped near
him or even a toy. He has been meeting lots of new people
and dogs in his foster home and at the agility classes he
frequents to get some "stranger" experience.
Each week Jack is making progress and he is beginning to
realize that the "strangers" aren't much different than
the people he knows. Once placed in a new home however,
we will expect some "setback" in this progress as he will
again have to form a bond with a new family in order to
feel "safe" amongst "strangers." This will take time and
I am going to look for a home who will not push him past
his limits of comfort with strangers.
If you are looking for an active young border collie to
be active with, Jack may be the boy for you. I have a feeling
he would love being a disc dog or agility dog.
Jack is being fostered in upstate NY.
