Buddy is a lower energy, 45 lb., 8-year-old purebred Border Collie who is overall a calm, gentle, and relaxed fella who loves his person, but is always ready to head out on an adventure or a good walk! At home, he has a has a happy-go-lucky, positive attitude and a lot of love to give someone!

This sweet boy enjoys car rides more than anything else and wants to be taken everywhere! He can get overly excited in the car though and is working on improving his manners. He has shown great improvement on adapting to new environments and can easily be taken along to new places. He thoroughly enjoyed visiting the lake and testing out the water! He does well with children, but sometimes takes a few minutes to warm up to males. However, he’ll come around quickly when given time and space to approach on his own.

Buddy gets along with dogs of all sizes but is still learning how to “dog.” He hasn’t quite gotten the hang of playing with other dogs yet and prefers to do his own thing at the dog park. He does great on and off leash. Some of his other favorites are going for walks, playing in the hose and sprinklers, watching shadows, and napping. He hasn’t shown much interest in playing with toys or learning commands, but does know sit, come, and wait, and will occasionally play with a toy or fetch with a ball in the yard.

He likes getting loved on, but also enjoys having adequate alone time. He prefers to sleep by himself on a couch at night. He’s housebroken and trustworthy left alone, so doesn’t need to be crated.

Buddy is up to date on all vaccinations, neutered, microchipped, has been treated for Heartworms, and is current on Heartworm and flea prevention. He is being fostered in Dallas and is available for adoption in Texas and some areas of Oklahoma only. If chosen for adoption, you must be able to travel to Dallas within 7 days of application approval.
