MALE | BORN DECEMBER 2020 | COLLIE X
LOCATED IN AUCKLAND
This guy is handsome and hilarious. He's smoochy, loves cuddles and mostly just wants to be with you.
This guy has his commands down solid if you prove to be a good leader. He's a smart cookie and once he trusts you, you have a golden dog who will bring you great joy with his vibe.
Colin spent a lot of time being fostered rural but has adapted to urban life too. Urban life takes a bit of time and 90% of the time he nails it. We called in a trainer to help assist with the 10% of urban living that was a struggle and this was a game changer for us and Colin.
Colin's work in progress with his manners is meeting other dogs. He needs this to be managed by you as his leader as he doesn't know how to meet/intro calmly on his own. Getting past this, he loves other dogs and has a ball of fun with everyone. His intro's will be something that he continues to need help with.
As for the rest of life, what can't this kid do. Crate trained, he's very polite with people and around young kids. Older kids who are more boisterous is where he can forget his size or the excitement of his tail.
Not a big fan of water, enjoys the beach and gets involved but anywhere else, he will climb over you to avoid a puddle or mud. This plays in your favour for bathing, he doesn't seek out puddles like some dogs do!
Loves tug, catching flies, destroying toys, sun bathing, enrichment games and adventures with you in the car, a very well mannered car companion.
His ideal family would be with another confident, well trained dog. Ideally a semi-rural but if urban, expect to put some effort in to help him adjust.
Colin needs you to invest time in building a relationship and trust for when out and about.
No stock, cats, ducks. The impulse to chase is strong.
Can't adopt Colin? You can still help.
Although we charge a small adoption fee, this doesn't generally cover the costs of us getting our dogs ready for adoption. Desexing, grooms, vet care, vaccinations, registration, training and variety of other things can go into these dogs. If you'd like to help either on a one off or regular basis we would be grateful for your donation.
