Border Collie Mix
3 years old
Hey there, my name’s Monty. I am a small three-year-old Border Collie (possibly with spaniel) mix. I came into rescue when my old owners were moving and couldn’t take me with them. I am sweet as can be and make daily life a blast! I am a goofy boy who loves nothing more than playing with my golden retriever foster brother and cuddling with my human foster parents. I may only be 30 pounds, but I am a mighty little dude. I don’t let the size difference between my foster brother and I hold me back at all. I love to wrestle, play tug, and run around the yard with my foster brother. I am a social butterfly and I love everyone I meet, dog and human. I even lived with a toddler in my last home and did very well.
I have had great house manners at my foster home and only play with my own toys and bones. I have also been doing very well with potty training, though I do have access to my backyard most of the day. I have lots of energy and love to go explore the world during long walks with my foster family. I pull a little on the leash when walking, but that’s just because I am so excited to greet the world. I would be a great hiking buddy! My old owners didn’t work with me too much on training, so I tend to greet my foster family by jumping up and pawing at them for attention. My foster family has been working with me on this by ignoring me until I settle down, and I have been learning very quickly. I would really benefit from going to training classes with my forever family as I am very eager to learn. I am very smart, and food motivated so training will be a breeze.
I tend to get a little anxious when my foster family leaves me home as I am very much a Velcro dog and like to be with my people all the time. While I eventually settle down I would do best with someone home a fair amount of the time. I absolutely love getting energy out while playing with my foster brother, so my ideal home would be with another very playful dog as well as a home with a yard for me to galivant in. I do great with dogs of all sizes and would love a friend to explore and hang out with. Could you be the adventure buddy I’ve been dreaming of?
