KIRK is a beautiful, 10-mo. old black
and white rough-coated male Border Collie. He is purbred but has no
papers. He was raised by an inattentive owner and was being allowed to
run loose in a rural area. Kirk is very smart and very energetic. He
found lots of things to do on his own - like chase cars and herd the
neighbors' cattle and goats. He seems to have natural ability to
work stock but needs some training.
Kirk is really sweet and gentle, he loves to be petted and touched all
over. He is learning how to walk on a leash and he really likes having a
cozy place and his own blanket and crate to sleep in.
Kirk is very affable and easygoing with all other dogs and enjoys playing
with other dogs who want to play with him. He is initially shy and
submissive with strangers but warms up very nicely. He shows absolutely no sign of fear aggression or any sort of aggression. With a little longer in foster care and with patient, understanding new owners, Kirk will be able to blossom into a GREAT dog and be able to show his full potential
|Kirk is agile and strong and, with
training, has the potential to make a
very good prospect for agility and/or herding. Kirk is in foster care in
central Kentucky. He is heartworm negative, neutered and up to date on all shots....please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more info. and an adoption application.
