Looking for the energy and intelligence of a Border Collie in a beautiful Rough Collie body? Handsome Lucci might just be the boy for you.

Lucci lost his home when his owners were no longer able to care for him properly. He was a little more rough than a diamond when he came to us, but with love, consistency, and an experienced dog trainer, he’s come a long way.

Lucci is a very sweet and smart dog. He knows now how to walk politely on a leash, will come when called and sit when asked. Lucci will seek people out for affection. He enjoys back scratches and will roll over to have his belly scratched. He’s has adjusted well to his crate but will bark to try to get you to let him out before you’re ready. Don’t fall for this wily dog. His barking diminishes when you ignore him.

He is an active dog that loves to run and play. Because of his higher energy and intelligence, it’s best to work his body, then his brain. A jogging companion would be great for Lucci. Once he has expended some energy and calmed down, he’s ready to learn. After reinforcing basic commands, challenge him with tricks and tasks. Make him work for his kibble by putting it in a treat dispenser, hiding it in a box, etc.

Training classes will be mandatory and Lucci’s new home will need a fenced yard. Because of his size, strength and impulse control, Lucci will not be placed in a home with children. His new owner will need the energy, expertise, and commitment necessary to build Lucci’s confidence and bring out all of his best traits.

If this great eager to please dog sounds like a good fit for your lifestyle, adopt Lucci, the Border Collie in a Rough Collie package!
