Jed is a young smooth tri Border Collie who has been in foster care wtih Furry Friends Rescue in Brighton, MI for more than a year. Jed's foster home describes this boy and tells his story here:
Jed came from a rough situation where he spent most of his life (1 year) in a kennel and did not know much about the outside world. He was skinny, in bad shape and was absolutely terrified. It took some time for him to adjust and start learning what it was like to be in a home. He still has a lot of quirks and is very timid, but is the sweetest dog ever. As he has built confidence, he has opened up to lots of new experiences. He loves toys and loves to chew the squeaker out of stuffies, likes to have a comfy crate with padding and blankets. He is good in the the car and does go on walks, but gets scared of loud vehicles and needs encouragement to keep moving. He is crate trained but he does have some anxiety when he is left. He will bark for a while, but he is not destructive in his crate. We are not sure what he would do left alone as an only. He is always crated in a room with other dogs.
As he has become more confident, he has been not so nice to the other male BC in the home. He is great with the females, but he has been rough on a younger male. His best home would be as an only dog or with a female BC. He would like a quieter home and would flourish with a family that would spend time building his confidence with training and activities. He is cat friendly and is used to cats in the house and outside.
Adoption process: Application, vet check and home check/video and adoption fee -- for more information please email email@example.com.
