Theo is a ten month-old (mcnab)border collie/heeler mix, that is a beautiful guy and a rising star. He’s been in foster care in Willts for four months, rescued from a neglectful neighbor, and now his foster is confident that he’s ready for his new home. He has a great temperament-responsive, conscientiousness, willing to follow instructions as is part and parcel of a working dog of this type.
The implication also is that he should be placed in a home where his time alone will be minimal, at least for the next year or so as he matures and seasons into a new family structure and routine. Prior working dog experience would be ideal. Theo would flourish under the care of crisp, unambiguous leadership.
Theo will need lots of exercise, both physically and mentally. (Please do research on working dog breeds.)
Off leash recall is superb, gets along great with other dogs and friendly with new people. Cats are unknown, but he is very responsive to correction, in any case.
Theo is just over forty pounds, neutered and ready to meet his forever person/family. Is that you? Please fill out an application and a volunteer will contact you. (JE/TH)
