Luke was adopted at 16 weeks of age by his current family. He is a Border Collie mix, possibly a BC x Newfoundland. He is now almost 3 years old and is a larger dog, at 60+ pounds.
Luke has lived with children in his family since his adoption, but in the past few months, Luke has become extremely uncomfortable around children other than those in his household, and has nipped at children at least four times. His owner says he gets over-excited when kids are wrestling or yelling, and on leash walks when meeting other children he has nipped them.
His owners say that without kids in the picture, his manners are excellent, and he is sociable and friendly with adults and other dogs. He has not met cats. He loves his crate, but has some discomfort that may be carsickness when riding in the car.
His owners want to re-home him to a home with no children, where he will not routinely encounter small children.
