Sonny is a happy friendly collie mix. He loves to hug and perform tricks for attention from humans. He can be shy around scary noises and in new places but loves people and other dogs. He is probably not a good choice for a home with toddlers. Sunny is probably between one and two years old and all of our young working dogs are adopted with an agreement to provide professional classroom training quickly.
He is a flight risk because he startles easily so a large fenced area to exercise and play would be best. He needs regular exercise and immediate training and activities to occupy his super smart mind. He walks nicely on a leash and knows basic manners (when he chooses to) He would love to canine friend who likes to play - a lot.
We often adopt same day as the first visit an interview but it is not guaranteed. Some dogs will take multiple visits and adopters are approved based on the best fit for the particular animal being considered. We do not hold pets during the process.
Most dogs who come from the shelter will not be house trained.
Most adoptable dogs will need some reintroduction into a home, potty training, basic manners and social skills. Please be prepared to provide that training and dedication that will be needed.
We do not have any way of knowing if a dog or cat will do well with all children or all other animals.
It is important everyone in the home is introduced to the new pet.
We also require that any family dogs come into meet your potential adoptee. Please be sure your dogs are spayed or neutered and current on vaccines (distemper - parvo and rabies) before bringing them to the shelter.
All dogs must be transported home in a travel crate to transport your new pup home safely.
Renters must provide a copy of a lease indicating pets are allowed or contact information for the landlord.
