Crew is a 2 year old neutered/male, classic black and white, Border Collie. Approximately 35 pounds. He is very lean and could stand to gain 5 to 10 pounds....he just burns off everything he eats. Crew is being fostered in Plymouth, Indiana.
Crew is EXCELLENT with other dogs!! His forever home will need to include another dog. He isn't an "only dog home" sort of dog. He plays at doggie daycare regularly and loves playtime. He also enjoys fetch. When other dogs are involved in the game, he will often just play chase as another dog is doing the fetching. He is very soft tempered and will not push to get the ball if another dog is going for it.
He is curious about my cats, but when he approaches them, he quickly loses interest and moves on. He is extremely fearful of loud noises. And very suspicious of unfamiliar people. Due to him being a bit more fearful than most BCs, he should be considered a flight risk. His forever home will have to be 100% diligent that doors and gates to areas that aren't securely enclosed or fenced are kept closed and latched at all times.
Once he becomes familiar with a new person, he is very affectionate. It does take him some time to warm up to new people. A home with children wouldn't be appropriate for him. If your home is a busy one, with lots of visitors....or if you have older children that enjoy having friends over, then he isn't an appropriate dog for you. It would be likely that he would need to be kept crated or separate from visitors he doesn't know. Crew likes and thrives in a quiet environment that also has other dogs for him to play and hang out with.
He is crate trained and house trained. He is excellent when traveling in the car. He is good on leash.
Crew is now ready to start looking for his forever home. He is a LOVE
He is very sweet and friendly with people he knows ...Excellent with dogs and reasonable with cats. He gets excited to see the kitties and would like to chase but doesn't ever try to put his mouth on them. He is very soft in terms of his temperament. He is great in his kennel or crate. He rides very well in the car. Very food motivated. Very promising young boy!! And very much my kind of dog... I love everything about this pup and he is super handsome to top it all off!!
He is a very sensitive and sweet boy. He was relinquished to a Southern Indiana shelter for chasing calves Who knew Border Collies liked to chase !?! He LOVES other dogs but is very suspicious of new people. Crew will bark at new people. He can be fearful of new places, noises and things and will require a secure fence (no invisible fences) since he could be a flight risk if he gets spooked by something. He is excellent in his crate and a very good rider in the vehicle. He is doing very well in the house now.... initially he was worried about being inside.... he had been an outside dog before coming in to rescue. He would do best in a quiet home with another dog or dogs. He was recently introduced to sheep. He was initially worried about the new environment but did finally settle in and we were able to see his herding instinct kick in. He has been neutered and completely vetted. He is ready to find a home of his very own that is perfectly suited for his needs.
Crew requires a fence (no electric fence) and an adult only home.
*** The potential adoptor will get a refund on the Application Fee if it’s determined by the Foster Parent that it’s not a good match for the dog and the dog for them, if we do not process their application.
