If you're looking for a dog with a golden retriever type personality with some border collie quirks, then River could be the dog for you!
River is an almost 8-year old neutered male black and white border collie. Unlike many border collies he is extremely friendly and social with everyone he meets, including children. Very little phases him and he will immediately go up to strangers and sit down at their feet waiting to be petted and given a treat. He loves belly rubs too.
He has very good house manners and is non-destructive. He does destroy dog toys on a daily basis though. River already knows sit, down, and stay. He does not respond to come yet. Although a fence is not a requirement for River, he must remain on leash while not in an fenced in area. This is due to his lack of a recall at this time. He will not come when called. This is also why River has a training requirement for his adoption. He will need to take a positive reinforcement training class with his new owner to learn "come" and to build a bond with him/her.
