Scottie is a Border Collie/Australian Cattle Dog mix... a Border Heeler some might call them...
He is approximately 7 months old. He came in to rescue with his 2 litter mates Sloane and Sway. He seems to be the softest of the bunch...except around food. He is a resource guarder with other dogs when it comes to food. He is new to me but has been very sweet with all the new people he has met so far.
..but typically a little reserved initially. He plays in doggie daycare everyday and is good with other dogs. Cats on the other hand... I don't know that he can be trusted around cats. Currently he shows the desire to chase them.... as we get closer to them and they don't run, he often loses interest. We'll see how he progresses as he settles in.
He has been very good in his kennel so far. He rides well in the car, but has gotten car sick a couple times and vomited. He is making progress with his leash walking...he hadn't really ever been on a leash before coming in to rescue. Updates will follow as I get to know him a little better
*** The potential adoptor will get a refund on the Application Fee if it’s determined by the Foster Parent that it’s not a good match for the dog and the dog for them, if we do not process their appliction.
