Banks is a year-and-a-half old mahogany rough collie. He’s a big guy with a big personality! He loves people and other dogs, and he loves to play. He plays very nicely with toys with the other dogs in the house, with his foster parents, or by himself. He also enjoys playing chase and light romping with the other dogs, but he’s great about understanding boundaries when the other dogs are ready for a break.

Banks is a pretty fearless, resilient pup. He settled in quickly when he arrived at his foster home. He does well in the car and will jump right in to go for a ride. He’s not bothered by fireworks or thunder, but he’s not a fan of the vacuum. He knows how to sit, lie down, and how to give his paw, and he does well with being brushed.

He runs to his kennel and waits when it’s time to eat, but he hasn’t picked up the “stay” or “wait” command 100%. He is very food motivated and is a very quick learner. He’ll need a home that will be patient as he learns some manners, as his love of food has led to some counter surfing. He enjoys going on walks, but he hasn’t mastered the art of loose-leash walking.

Banks is a very special guy who will need a very special home. He came to us with seizures, but he’s been put on medication that keeps things under control - he has been seizure-free since he started on the medication! He would be happy in a home with an active dog, but he’d also do ok as an Only Dog. Although he is a pretty confident guy, he finds comfort and security with his foster parents, and he likes to be where they are.
