Meet Gavyn

Meet Gavyn. Gavyn hasn't exactly had a goodlife, but we are here to ensure he finds the best furever home he deserves. Gavynwas found a year ago as a puppy near a busy road and the owner took him back but failed to keep him safe and he was againfound by a busy road. This time she has agreed to surrender him to rescue. With little to no prior vetting, we quickly got him to our wonderful veterinary clinic,where it was discovered that he retainedhis baby canines and hisother teeth are still up in his gums. One tooth was broken and infected and had to be removed. The veterinary clinic also treated a nasty eye infection. Sadly, this handsome boy was also so terribly matted that we had to shave him. We do know he will have a beautiful, fluffy white coat once it grows in. He is being fostered in the South County Area of St. Louis, Missouri.

Gavyn is a Double Merle, whichis the result of breeding Merle to Merle (color pattern) together. Those puppies have a 25% chance of being deaf or blind or both. Gavyn has both - some vision and hearing impairment. He can hear some sounds and is believed to have limited vision in his right eye. He quickly learns to navigate his spaces and will even go up stairs, jump on beds and out of vehicles.

Gavyn is a 2 year old rough coat collie. Gavyn is learning "touch training" and quickly picks up commands. He has learned to notify his Foster Mom when he needs to go outside. He is still working on crate training, as he would prefer just left free or wherever you are.He does like car rides and would love to go with you wherever you go, if he was allowed.He is learning to be more tolerant at feeding time and does take a little time getting used to other dogs. Once he has met the other doggies, play time is on! He greatly enjoys playing with other dogs. He does play with toys and chew items. When it's time to sleep, he likes to get on the bed and curl up beside his person.

Gavyn is up-to-date on all vaccinations. He is neutered. He requires no further follow-up for the prior medical issues. He is microchipped and will require monthly preventatives for fleas, ticks and heartworms (no exceptions). Gavyn's ideal home will require a visible fence and no children under 10 years of age. Special needs experience is a bonus. If you are interested in this beautiful boy, you may apply here:https://www.speakstlouis.com/forms/adoption-application/
