Kirk is a great dog. He's a typical, teenager border collie. He's silly and loves to play. He's got plenty of energy but isn't an intense dog. He does have some motion sensitives that haven't matured into bad habits YET, but will need to be monitored in his forever home (like showing interest in cars while riding in a car, biting at water coming out of the hose, etc). Kirk is a lovable dude. He hasn't been around small kids, so we'd recommend him w/teenagers and up. He will LOVE a fenced yard to romp and play in.
Kirk is good w/ some other dogs but can be a bit overwhelming sometimes. He'd do best w/another busy friend to romp and play with. Kirk has recently had a few scuffles w/other dogs in his foster home. Due to this we'd prefer to place him in a local home (MN) and be sure to do a meet 'n greet w/any new canine family members.He'd probably do best w/a more submissive dog. Kirk DOES love to play, but he absolutely needs rules. Kirk will not be a "dog park" sort of dog. Kirk can not live w/cats. Kirk will benefit greatly from going to obedience classes w/his new family. He's a wonderful dog who thrives on boundaries and rules. He's done great in foster care once he understands what the rules are. Kirk is perfectly crate and house trained.
Kirk would be an excellent dog for an active person/family. He would likely be a great running/jogging/hiking/camping buddy. Kirk is looking for a home who can keep him busy and teach him lots of new things, is that with you?
