Do you love border collies for all their cute and funny quirks? Then THIS IS YOUR GUY!!! Chase was pulled from a kill shelter where he was going to be put down for being deaf. ABC stepped up and pulled him immediately. He is an amazingly smart boy and is learning sign language with his current foster. He LOVES to look for birds, bugs, rain drops, or anything in the air that he can jump and try to catch. He shows a little bit of ball interest, but quickly loses interest when he sees something else fun to go after. He loves to wrestle and run and roll with his resident puppy friend, and gets along with all kind dogs. He will hold his own when bullies go after him, but he has never started any trouble.
He is perfect in the house, crates up beautifully, sleeps all night, or lets his foster mom know if he needs a potty break. He has never had an accident in the house and rings the bells on the back door when he needs to go out. He loves to play with toys, water bottles, flower arrangements, shoes, or anything easily accessible. He knows the hand signals, “come”, “crate”, “sit”, “down” and “stay”.
This is the most fun little guy you will ever meet with all the great quirks that go with the breed, but Chase will need a devoted family to continue with his training. He could probably be an amazing deaf agility dog if given the chance to try, and an obedience class would be fantastic thing for him to do with his new family. This boy will grab your heart the minute you meet him, so if you sound like the family for Chase, please apply with ABC Rescue. A home visit will be done and an adoption donation of $200 will be asked. He is current on all vaccinations, hw negative and on preventative, neutered, and chipped. Don’t delay on this amazing boy!!
