Shep is a super smart dude...who's never been told no in his entire life (until now lol). He's super receptive and learns quickly, but he's like a puppy in an adult dog's body. That being said he's great in a crate and seems to be reliably house trained. He seems fine with other dogs. We were told he lived w/cats, however he seems VERY interested in our barn cats (who are super dog savvy and normally don't catch the eye of dogs who are supposed to be good with cats....)
Shep, like any border collie w/out a job for their entire life, has made some of his own fun games- the main one being that he does want to chase cars. Shep will absolutely need a physically fenced yard in his new home (privacy would be ideal). We'd recommend at least a 4' fence if not higher.
Shep came into rescue and tested positive for lyme disease. He is currently on medication and is expected to be totally fine (he is fine already LOL). If he's adopted before his medication is completed that will accompany him to his new home.
Shep is a medium energy guy. He could be a fun dog for an active home who might like to give dog trainings/sports a try- or he could be an excellent hiking/camping/adventure partner. Shep will absolutely need to go to an obedience class to learn basic life skills/commands and to help establish a working relationship with his new humans (we can help you find a class). Shep would do best in an adult home (or older teenagers). Shep has shown some fear around men, but nothing more then barking. He gets over it fairly quickly, but his new home should know that. He is fine w/the man in his foster home now (as is seen on the video lol). Shep is actually a really nice border collie- he'll make someone an excellent companion!
