Meet Nate, a sweet, smart 2-1/2 yr. old Border Collie mix who weighs approx. 60 lbs. He loves meeting new people and dogs, and is gentle with children. Nate is willing to lounge around and sleep while you work and, once you have a routine in place, he’s happy to settle into your routine. In his foster home, they are working on crate training.
Nate is also a total goofball when he meets people and wiggles his butt and tail with excitement! He loves everyone he meets and expects everyone to be his friend! Nate walks well on leash most of the time — he occasionally pulls on leash with excitement if there’s another dog he really wants to meet!
He was recently introduced to a cat and he and the cat touched nose to nose and mostly left each other alone! Nate has also met babies and toddlers and has done well with all of them. However, we think he might do best with slightly older children, as he can get overly excited and jumpy wanting to kiss them!!
Just a couple of Nate’s most endearing qualities are that loves to sleep with his legs in the air and does a very cute howl when he hears a siren! And he loves to sit and look out the front window and see what’s going on in the world outside.
Nate is an amazing dog who just needs a little more training. He is housebroken, gentle, sweet, curious — and, have we mentioned goofy!! Nate would love to hang out by your side while you do pretty much anything!
