I love you already and we haven’t even met. I have so many mad skills, so listen up.

Mad skill: I am loving. Yes I will love you forever. I need you. 

Mad skills: Hanging out, communication, and manners. Give me a spot on the floor, a rug or a dog bed near you and I will just hang. If I need something, I will let you know with a whimper. I am fully house trained. Please keep some good chew toys around for me to chew on. I am still a puppy. 

Mad skill: Interacting with others. I have never met another canine I didn’t love or want to say hello to. Watch me be polite in my greeting. Friendship makes my world go round. I rate my day a good one if I played with my foster siblings (dogs) and do some work with my foster Mom (training, fetch, etc.). Please give me points for coming when I am called because I was so shy at first, I did not come right away. I am very curious, especially about the beautiful cats I live with. 

Mad skills: Eating and being good. I love food. My bowl gets filled with healthy kibble and some extras like blueberries, apples, carrots, and my monthly Interceptor (heart worm treatment). I have never taken anything from the counter (good boy). Speaking of good boy, I love when my mom tells me I am a good boy when working on learning new things. At first I was a bit scared inside the house, but I have been so brave (my foster mom tells me that also) that being inside is great.

Mad skill: Walking. I love to take a family walk or individual walk. I come with my own harness that has helped me not to pull. I am happy, proud, gorgeous, and sniffy when I go for a walk. I would be your walking partner. I need walks.

Mad skill: I like women. What’s not to like? It took me some time to warm up to my foster dad. Please remember, so much was new for me. Being inside was new. The house noises were new. People were new.

Mad skill: Highly trainable. I thrive on my fosters telling me what a good boy I am. I love hearing how brave I have been. I am able to be trained because I get great treat rewards and because my fosters are positive and patient.  Watch my head tilt while I process something (ADORABLE).

I am a collie and do some nibbling, and I may head bump you when playing. My foster mom is teaching me she would rather I didn’t. I may be better with older children.

I am a little over a year now. I am a sometimes timid, tri-colored youngster.

I have been asked to be on the cover of GQ for dogs, but I don’t care about my looks. I care about a loving home.
