is an 18 months old purebred, red tri border collie. As
his name indicates, he is a fun and active border collie!
Riot is in rescue because city life was a bit too hard with
strangers and activity at every corner and with no real
outlet for his energy. He was exhibiting fear aggression
and has now been in foster care for a month in the country.
He is doing much better and has been able to accept both
strange people and dogs both inside the home and outside
at area agility trials when he travels with his foster family.
has a nice "drive" and is enjoying learning about
agility and how to play games like "touch" and
"tug." He is in a home with several other dogs
and doing well except when food is involved. He will try
to push another dog out of the way of their food dish and
his foster family is working on this. He has gotten much
better at allowing other dogs next to him to receive treats,
patiently awaiting his turn as he gets a "timeout"
if he tries to get pushy. This is also easily managed by
feeding in separate rooms or crates but the foster home
is choosing to work on this behavior with him at this time.
