Single Black/White Male seeking new home;
Hi Willie here. Well word is getting out I'm looking for
a new home. Let me tell you a little about myself. First
of all I'm a handsome devil, 7 years old so I have all the
puppy chewing, peeing on the floor, jumping all over you
stuff behind me. I can be a little stand offish at first
but I'm really sweet and mellow. I know mellow hardly ever
gets used in the description of a Border Collie but that
fits me to a "T." I can settle most anywhere quickly.
In fact as long as you have enough space for me to get my
exercise I don't even need a fence.
Here in my foster home I have been learning to live with
cats. This is new to me, previously I always thought cats
were for chasing up a tree. If you have a dog savvy cat
that absolutely won't run then I can control myself but
if the cat runs, well you better hope he can run FAST if
you know what I mean. I also have three new foster sisters.
This is a big change for me you see I came from a one dog
home. Same as with people it takes me awhile to warm up.
I don't like them in my face I don't know why I just don't.
I would be happiest as an only dog or maybe just one other.
Now to get to the really fun stuff that I like to do. Right
at the top of my list is hiking but then I do love to go
for rides too. Maybe swimming should be first because I
really like swimming; also squeaky toys are my favorite.
Oh geez I almost forgot chest/belly rubs how could I forget
that . I absolutely love belly rubs. And my human I do get
attached you know. Not one of those up your butt dogs that
you turn around and step on but just stay fairly close.
I'm what they call low maintenance in the Border Collie
world. A long walk a day, a little play and I'm set. Did
I mention I walk very politely on a leash? Why is it some
dogs pull so much, seriously that has got to hurt their
know sit, down, hi five and something pretty cool; when
hiking and I get a little bit ahead just say "hold up" and
I'll wait for you. My foster Mom crate trained me too although
I rarely need to go in. Heck I don't even get on the furniture.
And now for the not so good stuff. Corn, I'm allergic
to it; I can't help it I just am. It's no biggie just a
corn free food my foster Mom can help you with that. And
finally the reason I'm looking for a new home; kids. Now
if they were born, lets say the size of a seven year old,
I wouldn't be looking for a home right now. You see the
little ones make me nervous; I can't help it they just do.
So well behaved children seven or older are more to my liking.
I play with my foster Moms grandkids every week. I love
it when they throw my rubber ducky in the pond so I can
go get it.
if your home meets my criteria drop me a line or call my
foster Mom. You may have just found yourself a great companion
and a new best friend!
I am being fostered near Portland ME.
