Tahoe is available to Sponsor!
Tahoe is a friendly and playful 3-month-old medium coated Border Collie puppy that will likely weigh 40 – 5o pounds as an adult. True to his breed, Tahoe is bright, attentive and learns quickly. He loves treats, chew toys and dog toys of all sorts. When he’s done playing, he loves to cuddle with his person for a nice nap. He’s an energetic pup that gets along with other easygoing dogs and with dog-savvy cats. He is doing great with his house training, with reminders. Tahoe is one of a large group of dogs that were living in poor conditions and were confiscated by animal control. Currently in foster care, Tahoe is ready to leave the past behind him and become a shining star in a family of his own. Because he had to fight for every morsel of food in his previous life, Tahoe does exhibit some food guarding, which is understandable. At this time he is being fed in his crate. He’ll do well with a savvy adopter that can help him work through that issue, and can keep him both mentally and physically active. Tahoe walks nicely on the leash and he’s learning to sit, stay and other basic obedience. Herding breeds are working dogs, and without work they can become bored! Tahoe might be a great candidate for agility training, herding or other dog sports. This breed can tend to “herd” kids by nipping at heels, so an adult adopter or family with kids over age 10 would be best. Tahoe is neutered and has received his first vaccine – he’ll require boosters in the near future. If you can help this sweet pup live his best life, please fill out an online application.
Please note: Due to COVID-19, preference is given to residents of Monterey County and Santa Cruz County.
